Up to 10 persons per one lakh population in the country are estimated to have multiple sclerosis (MS), an autoimmune disease. Two out of the three affected are women. Issues related to multiple sclerosis were discussed in detail at the three-day global scientific meet on autoimmune neurology titled Indian Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ICRTIMS) - 2018. "The symptoms may begin as isolated attacks, and progress gradually before finally settling as a permanent disability. Treatment at the initial stage can slow down the progress of MS and ensure a self-reliant life for the patient,” said Dr. R. Suresh Kumar, an expert in MS and Professor at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences.
