How Your Fundraising Helps
In 2016, your
fundraising helped make a significant impact towards stopping MS, restoring function
that has been lost and ending MS forever. Below are some of the highlights from
each area that you made possible:
- Stopping MS: Ocrelizumab,
which was shown to slow primary progressive MS and to reduce MS relapses
in clinical trials, was granted “Breakthrough” status by the FDA and a decision about its possible approval is expected by the end of
MS Forever: The International Consortium of MS Genetics has identified
200 genetic variations associated with MS, providing
new leads to understanding how genes and other factors combine to make
people susceptible to MS. These findings were made possible by the
combined efforts of consortium members, who were able to analyze data from
more than 100,000 people. The Society co-funded this work.
