The predominant therapy for multiple sclerosis is disease-modifying treatment in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, immunosuppressive threpay in progressive multiple sclerosis and Glucocorticoid therapy in acute exacerbation.

Medical Therapy

The predominant therapy for multiple sclerosis is:

Disease-modifying treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis

Relapsing-remitting type of MS can be treated with disease modifying therapy (DMT) in order to reduce the rate of attack and disease progression.[1][2]

Infusion therapy:

Injectable therapies:

Oral therapies:

Treatment of progressive multiple sclerosis

Treatment of acute exacerbation of multiple sclerosis
