Pediatric MS

A number of investigators throughout North America are trying to understand more about early onset MS. At the Pediatric MS Center at Stony Brook University, a study evaluating youngsters with MS or suspected MS, using a team approach, is currently enrolling participants. The research team is assessing the effects of MS on neurologic, behavioral, and social functioning. There is also an opportunity to participate in a research project aimed at studying the causes of MS. Interested individuals should contact Maria Milazzo at 631-444-7802.
