 Cognitive rehabilitation found to be effective in treating multiple sclerosis-related cognitive dysfunctionCognitive rehabilitation found to be effective in treating multiple sclerosis-related cognitive dysfunction
 
In a review of recent literature, a team of researchers from Kessler Foundation conclude that cognitive rehabilitation programs are efficacious in treating multiple sclerosis-related cognitive dysfunction, and urge clinicians to consider this low-cost, low-risk, yet effective treatment approach for their patients.
 
   Study finds a new line of drugs to stimulate myelin repair in multiple sclerosisStudy finds a new line of drugs to stimulate myelin repair in multiple sclerosis
 
In the nearly 1 million Americans living with multiple sclerosis, the fatty substance that insulates the nerves of the central nervous system—called myelin—is damaged.
 
   Multiple sclerosis patients elicit robust T-cell responses to mRNA COVID-19 vaccinesMultiple sclerosis patients elicit robust T-cell responses to mRNA COVID-19 vaccines
 
New research shows that Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients undergoing anti-CD20 (aCD20) treatment – which depletes the B cells that contribute to the MS attacks – are able to mount robust T-cell responses to the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, despite having a muted antibody response to the vaccines.
 
 Teriflunomide tempers lesion growth in pediatric patients with multiple sclerosis
 
Teriflunomide tempers lesion growth in pediatric patients with multiple sclerosisThere are few treatment options for children with multiple sclerosis-;a condition in which the immune system attacks the protective covering of nerves in the brain and spinal cord-;and most therapies for the disease have not been tested in children.
 
 
 Novel set of immune cells may have the opposite effect in multiple sclerosis, other brain conditions
 
Novel set of immune cells may have the opposite effect in multiple sclerosis, other brain conditionsA group of immune cells that normally protect against inflammation in the gastrointestinal tract may have the opposite effect in multiple sclerosis (MS) and other brain inflammation-related conditions, according to a new study by Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian researchers.
 
 
 Study examines the effects of methylphenidate on mental fatigue in multiple sclerosis patients
 
Study examines the effects of methylphenidate on mental fatigue in multiple sclerosis patientsA team of researchers at Kessler Foundation studied the effects of methylphenidate on mental fatigue in individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). This is the first study to examine the psychostimulant's effects on 'state' vs 'trait' mental fatigue in MS.
 
 
 Multiple sclerosis may be caused by infection with the Epstein-Barr virus
 
Multiple sclerosis may be caused by infection with the Epstein-Barr virusMultiple sclerosis (MS), a progressive disease that affects 2.8 million people worldwide and for which there is no definitive cure, is likely caused by infection with the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), according to a study led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health researchers.
 
 
 New MRI technique could pave the way to quicker assessment of multiple sclerosis
 
New MRI technique could pave the way to quicker assessment of multiple sclerosisIt is important that multiple sclerosis (MS) is diagnosed and treated as early as possible in order to delay progression of the disease.
