More than one million people are living with Multiple Sclerosis, a chronic and unpredictable disease of the central nervous system (CNS). MS is thought to be an immune-mediated disorder, in which the immune system attacks healthy tissue in the CNS.

The good news for those living with MS through the COVID-19 pandemic is that MS does not pose more risk for COVID-19 than the general population, and MS patients can safely receive COVID-19 therapies if they do become ill.

And, there's even more good news. Mavenclad is a new treatment option that allows patients to skip infusions and trips to the infusion center. Mavenclad is an FDA approved pill that can help with typical MS symptoms.
