Multiple Sclerosis And the Immune System

Multiple Sclerosis is a potentially incapacitating disease of the spinal cord (central nervous system)and brain. In this condition, a person’s immune system attacks the myelin (a protective sheath) that covers the nerve fibers. This leads to communication issues between your brain and other organs of your body. This can eventually lead to the deterioration of permanent damage to the nerves. This article discusses what Multiple Sclerosis is and how it impacts the immune system.
