In brief: Numerous meds now

We do not yet have the full-blown cure, but we do very well indeed with control.
Newer more potent medications are here, and many patients are finding stability. Tysabri, (natalizumab) gilenya, tec-federa, and even Aubagio are supplanting the prior self-injectables. We have even found vitamin d supplements to make a big difference.
