MS & Neuroimmune Diseases
Multiple Sclerosis & Neuroimmune Diseases
Multiple sclerosis occurs when the body’s immune system attacks healthy nerves (in the brain, spinal cord and behind the eye), causing problems that can be disabling.
At UVA, we understand how challenging and complicated this and other neuroimmune diseases can be. Our dedicated specialists care for you in tandem with other experts, including physical and occupational therapists, social workers and neuropsychologists. We provide treatment as a team.

Inflammation & the Immune System
UVA researchers have found what could be a critical key to what causes inflammation in people with multiple sclerosis. The faulty genetic control that should be limiting inflammation could become a target for new medications.
