Multiple Sclerosis is thought to affect more than 2.3 million people worldwide and is at least 2 to 3 times more common in women than in men. The impact of MS on one's health and quality of life can be enormous. Though there is currently no cure for MS, there are many treatments available that can slow the progression of the disease and ease its symptoms.
The Multiple Sclerosis Clinic of Central Texas at CTNC is led by Edward J. Fox, MD, PhD and is the most comprehensive MS clinic in Central Texas. We offer comprehensive, coordinated care to manage the disease and promote comfort, function, independence, health and wellness. We also are on the forefront of clinical trials in the development of novel therapeutics for the treatment of MS.
Types of MS
Four disease courses have been identified in multiple sclerosis:
Relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS)
Secondary-progressive MS (SPMS)
Primary-progressive MS (PPMS)
Progressive-relapsing MS (PRMS)
There are various MS treatment options available today that have been shown to decrease the frequency of relapses and to delay disease progression. Some treatments use an injection—either subcutaneous (under the skin) or intramuscular (into the muscle)—while others are given intravenously (via an infusion) or orally (by mouth).
