The Christmas Gift Appeal

All of us who care about people with MS have one thing on our Christmas lists

Treatments. And we need your help. Right now our researchers are working to repurpose existing drugs to treat MS, and bring us closer to our goal of stopping it for good. Your donation could help us get there, faster.

Alun's sister has MS. Hear from him about his hopes for the future and how you can help make all the difference.

Simvastatin to keep nerves safe from damage

We believe high doses of this cholesterol drug could protect nerves from damage and reduce brain shrinkage.

MS Society Cambridge Centre for Myelin Repair

Bexarotene could help repair nerve coatings

This cancer drug could bring us a step closer to our goal of repairing myelin. If we could do that, we could halt and potentially reverse MS symptoms.

MS-SMART treatments for progressive MS

We think drugs used to treat heart disease, depression and motor neurone disease can also help people living with progressive MS.
