In brief: No cure at this time

It is difficult to develop a cure when the cause of a condition is not fully understood.
There seem to be several factors that contribute to the development of MS but there is no ONE gene or ONE virus that has been implicated as a direct cause. Rather, the interaction of genetic susceptibility and infectous and/or environmental factors seem to result in dysregulation of the immune system.

In brief: Not yet, BUT

The current crop of potent disease modifying agents gets very close to full control, and disease free months and years.
Consider using tysabri, (natalizumab) gilenya, or even tecfidera, as these are most potent. Low fat, low salt diets with vitamin d-3 supplements can support further stabilization.
