The Neuroimmunology/Multiple Sclerosis Program provides multidisciplinary care for individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS). The Neuroimmunology/MS Program is a "center-without-walls," which coordinates care from neurologic, nursing, psychological, physical therapy, rehabilitation and urologic perspectives. Clinical care incorporates the use of newer maintenance immunotherapies, including interferon-beta and glatiramer acetate, as well as new symptomatic treatments, such as intrathecal baclofen for spasticity.
The program participates in investigational new drug studies for MS; some trials are single site studies at IU School of Medicine, and others are part of national and international multicenter consortiums.
