Therapeutic Claims in Multiple Sclerosis: A Guide to Treatments, 4th ed.
It provides background on MS, and covers the history, rationale, and summary of MS treatments; treatments for acute exacerbations; methods used to prevent worsening of MS; symptomatic and general management of MS; and miscellaneous empirical treatments.
Treatments used in MS are listed with summaries of the scientific rationale, how each has been evaluated the risks and cost, and a concluding statement.
While the language is dry, detached, and professional, it is the best guide to current MS treatments. For example, many concluding statements simply say: "There appears to be no generally accepted scientific basis for use of this therapy. It has never been tested in a properly controlled trial."
