Multiple sclerosis is a chronically inflammatory and demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. It is assumed that multiple sclerosis is triggered by an autoimmune reaction that provoles an inflammatory reaction of the central nervous system. The manifestation of the disease is also additionally assisted not only by the misdirected immunity reaction but also by neurodegenerative processes and genetic factors as well as by environmental influences.
