The best-studied mechanisms of degenerative alterations and clinical and experimental evidence supported the protective influence of beta-interferons treatment in MS are discussed.

Neuroprotection is highlighted among the future directions.

The main features of the various groups of neurotrophic factors and the possible ways of their therapy-targeted transport into brain tissues are analyzed.
