Survey results: neuroprotection

"I am reassured that 55% of MSers expect and effective neuroprotective therapy to stabilise of improve their disability progression; this is a realistic expectation and something that may be achievable with the strategies that are currently being pursued by various research groups across the world."

"The corollary is that 45% of MSers are expecting to improve or recover function; this is a hard ask and is probably beyond what neuroprotective strategies can offer; i.e. treatments that prevent further nerve loss. To improve or restore function we need neurorestorative strategies; these are a long way off!"
