Multiple sclerosis, once considered a disease that affected mainly those in Europe and North America, is actually a global concern. The Atlas of MS, the most comprehensive MS research study ever undertaken, was launched this week. For a look at the latest findings, The Takeaway checks in with the man who spearheaded this three-year endeavor.
Guests: Dr. Alan Thompson, Director of the Institute of Neurology, London and Chairman of the Multiple Sclerosis International Federation’s Medical and Science Board. He was one of the doctors who oversaw and coordinated the Atlas of MS.
