The Christmas Gift Appeal

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

Treatments. Right now our researchers are working (with Santa) to repurpose existing drugs to stop, slow and even reverse MS symptoms. 

Take a peek into Santa’s workshop, live from the North Pole. Click on the flashing targets to find out how your donation could change lives this Christmas.

Stop relapses. Stop progression. Stop MS.

Simvastatin to keep nerves safe from damage

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

Professor Alasdair Coles, Lead investigator of bexarotene trial,

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.

Professor Siddharthan Chandran, Co-lead of MS-SMART trial


Co-Director of MS Society Edinburgh Centre for MS Research

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.
