Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune inflammatory disease that affects the Central Nervous System (CNS) by interfering with nerve signal transmission. Relapse Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) is defined by a repeated cycle of flare-ups (relapse stage) and remission (period of normal functioning). Approximately 85% of MS cases are diagnosed during the Relapse Remitting Multiple Sclerosis stage as opposed to the progressive stage. Women are affected by RRMS between 2 and 3 times as often as men. RRMS is defined by inflammation that targets myelin specifically; this type of inflammation does not occur in progressive forms of MS. Advancement to progressive forms of Multiple Sclerosis from Relapse Remitting Multiple Sclerosis typically occur 10 years after diagnosis.
