MS has long been a burden for the patient and his environment, due to the serious complications that result, and is clearly reflected in his lifestyle, preventing him from following a normal life. But the rapid evolution in research and studies on sclerosis, which doctors say is the fastest of all that can be seen in medicine in various diseases, have contributed to the emergence of sophisticated modern therapies to restore hope to patients by offering them a quality of life is not affected by complications of the disease, as confirmed by the Merck panel discussion on the latest medical developments in the field of MS, which brought together a group of neurologists.
The diagnosis of MS has been obsessive for many years, and autoimmune disease affecting the central nervous system is similar in many other diseases, especially those affecting the nervous system, such as exhaustion, difficulty in walking, limb numbness, muscle weakness and loss of balance. In fact, the symptoms are often neglected or misdiagnosed, worsening the situation and, with it, irreversible and irreversible. Even today, there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, but modern treatments are available to bring about a comprehensive change in the perception of the disease and how to deal with it. According to neurologist Dr. Nabil Akkawi, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is emerging today as the primary diagnostic tool for multiple sclerosis for early diagnosis and avoiding delays that make treatment difficult. "Early diagnosis is an essential condition for increasing the effectiveness of treatment," he said, noting that the spots that can be seen in sclerosis-related images are characterized by their specific locations in the brain, which facilitates diagnosis. It is still exposed to them and they are also indicators. "
Treatments and their goals
Regarding the development of treatments available today, neurologist Dr. Naji Riachi's doctor said that these treatments contribute to reducing the development of the disease. Significant advances have been made in the treatment of some cases through new drugs that can control the disease and reduce its development, while early diagnosis and rapid treatment remain a prerequisite for better treatment. "Although these treatments seem to be able to control the disease remarkably, the main goal to be sought soon is to stop the disease by 100%."
Dr. Salaam Kosi, a neurologist, spoke of modern therapies that have the potential to recreate the immune system, a qualitative change in the conventional treatments available for multiple sclerosis. The new treatment selectively targets immune cells that attack the nervous system while controlling the symptoms. Inflammation of inflammation. Its effect on healthy immune cells is simple. The new treatment also has the ability to reconstitute the immune system to function properly for 4 to 13 years in some cases. The experiments also showed that the condition of most patients who did the treatment remained stable for 4 years without the need for any treatment during that time.
Doctors have pointed out that the cost of treatment may be high, but the Ministry of Health maintains, noting that these new treatments reduce the burden of disease on the community as a whole and on the health bill in general, in addition to its role, of course, in improve the patient's life.
