Research into the inner workings of multiple sclerosis comes in all shapes and sizes including looking at specific parts of the brain. A recent study has looked at the role of the blood brain barrier and how it affects patients with this condition.

Ari Waisman, PhD, from the University of Mainz in Germany discussed his research on the topic during the annual meeting of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers in National Harbor Maryland. Waisman said that while his study has shown a lot about the value of this topic there is still much more work to be done as they look to see how this can be applied to patient care overall.
