Stop MS Appeal

To stop MS, we need to find treatments that slow or stop progression for everyone. That's why research is so important. Find out how your support helps research and clinical trials.

Over 150,000 people live with multiple sclerosis (MS) in the UK. It’s different and unpredictable for everyone, making it hard to know how it’ll progress. At the moment, existing drugs only work on one aspect of MS - the immune system.

To stop MS, we also need to find ways to repair myelin, the protective coating around nerves, damaged in MS. To do this, we need to connect research from the lab right through to the clinic. We need to understand things like how damaged nerves signal for help and how myelin-making cells are activated.

With your help, we’re funding pioneering research like Dr Cory Willis'. He’s researching brain cells called astrocytes. And the role they play in a specific type of brain lesion in progressive MS, called a chronic active lesion.

And Dr Sally Wheatley’s research, which is studying a protein called survivin. And its effects on myelin repair.

And research projects like Dr Marietta Van der Linden’s, which looks into how an adapted sport called frame running could help people with MS.
