In brief: It doesn't

Treatments for MS don't cure it; they just slow down its progression.

In brief: Clarity

Sorry, we do not have the cure for ms, but we can readily control the disorder. All current medications on the market, control the entry of inflammatory cells into the brain and spinal cord by a variety of mechanisms, so that damage to myelin is reduced.
Tysabri (natalizumab) is most successful, Gilenya a close second, and far less effective are interferons and copaxone. Avonex is by far the least potent.
