The article focuses on the progress in multiple sclerosis (MS) research in the last years. According to the author, research on MS is advancing. While researchers occasionally reached dead ends in studies, they also unexpectedly find critical findings. For instance, it has been found out that MS have genetic predisposition. Researcher also found out that there is a gender bias for the disease.
