Product description

Review

“An absolute must-read for anyone afflicted by MS, family member or caregiver, or treating physician.” —Isadore Rosenfeld, M.D.,bestselling author of Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld’s Breakthrough Health 2004

“A rich, fascinating portrait of important failures and successes in this difficult field of medicine . . . this book is well written and detailed. With mastery, Weiner mixes anecdote with the teaching of biologic, statistical, and medical processes, rendering a living tale that keeps the reader’s attention. The book manages to entertain while drawing a clear picture of the evolving process that drives medical progress, however slowly and ponderously.” —New England Journal of Medicine

“Howard Weiner offers the reader an intimate, insider’s view of the ongoing scientific effort to understand and ultimately to cure MS. Written in lucid and accessible prose, the travails and triumphs of modern medicine are brought to life.” —Jerome Groopman, M.D., author of The Anatomy of Hope

From the Inside Flap

What causes multiple sclerosis?
When will there be a cure?
Dr. Howard Weiner has spent nearly three decades trying to find answers to the mysteries of multiple sclerosis, an utterly confounding and debilitating disease that afflicts almost half a million Americans. Curing MS is his moving, personal account of the long-term scientific quest to pinpoint the origins of the disease and to find a breakthrough treatment for its victims.
Dr. Weiner has been at the cutting edge of MS research and drug development, and he describes in clear and illuminating detail the science behind the symptoms and how new drugs may hold the key to "taming the monster." From the "Twenty-one Points" of MS--a concise breakdown of the knowns and unknowns of the disease--to stories from the frontlines of laboratories and hospitals, Curing MS offers a message of hope about new treatments and makes a powerful argument that a cure can--and will--be found.
