Abstract

A brief review is given of existing clinical attempts to treat multiple sclerosis with interferons beta-1a and beta-1b. It is quite indisputable today that treating SM patients with interferons has many advantages. This author discusses the effects of interferon beta treatment on the frequency of episodes, exacerbation of motor incapacity, and MR tomographic registration of SM activity. The effects of interferon beta on the immunological of SM are also discussed.
