In 2004 we published the first edition of Multiple Sclerosis Explained to give a basic introduction to what MS does to the body. Readers could include people with MS; their family and friends; people caring for someone with MS; and those simply interested in this most enigmatic condition.
Prior to producing this second edition, we asked readers for feedback. As a result, there is now an extensive look at current research and areas where advances might occur. There is also a separate glossary.
The book purposely avoids discussing the treatment and management of symptoms. This is covered by other MS Trust publications, details of which are given in relevant sections.
