“Over the years there was a slow deterioration. I began to lose my balance and fall more. Everyday tasks became a challenge. Then, when I was 65, I was diagnosed with progressive MS. Unfortunately, there is no cure.” – Margaret, 70.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an incurable, neurodegenerative disease that affects over 25,000 Australians and 2.3 million people worldwide. People are most often diagnosed during their prime, between 20 – 40 years old. 75% of all those diagnosed with MS are women.
Here at the Centenary Institute our scientists and researchers are working around the clock to deliver groundbreaking research that, if successful, could stop – and potentially even reverse – the effects of MS.
