  • MS is the commonest non-traumatic disabling disease to affect young adults in the UK. Although current dogma states that it is an organ-specific autoimmune disease of the central nervous system the antigenic targets of the autoimmune attack have yet to be identified. Despite the cause of MS remaining undefined there is an increasing understanding of the causal pathways that underlie the disease. MS is considered by most to be a complex disease due to an interaction between genetic and environmental factors.
