A number of drugs can slow the progression of MS in some people. And these constitute the disease-modifying drugs. All of these drugs work by suppressing, or altering, the activity of the body's immune system. These drugs do not cure MS, but they do reduce the frequency and severity of attacks and the development of new brain lesions. In addition, they slow down the progression of MS, reducing future disability. These drugs can improve the quality of life for many people with MS. Therefore, most doctors suggest that treatment with one of these drugs start in most people, as soon as a diagnosis of relapsing-remitting MS has been made.
