Are We There Yet?

A cure for multiple sclerosis.  That is what we all want, correct?  While we have not reached the cure yet, we are getting closer.  When we think about a cure for multiple sclerosis, that term may mean different things to different people.  To those who are newly diagnosed, a cure might mean a completely effective therapy that would completely eliminate any risk of relapses, new lesions on MRI, or progression of disability.  For those who have been dealing with multiple sclerosis for a while and may have accumulated some disability, the cure would mean stopping any further progression and erasing any disability.  Admittedly, we have come a long way since 1992 when there were no FDA approved treatment options for multiple sclerosis.  So where are we right now with current research in multiple sclerosis?
