Hi Coman,

There are a number of treatments being tried for controlling multiple
sclerosis.  I'm giving you websites below that discuss one or more
options.  All of them are standard treatments that are done with the
supervision of a hospital and/or private physician.  I found them on
the MedlinePlus health topic for multiple sclerosis
MedlinePlus is a service of the US National Library of Medicine that
collects websites from governmental and private non-profit groups.

National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS): Chemotherapy

NMSS: Treatments - Medications Used in MS
This goes over the major drugs that are used for the treatment of MS.
Here's a brochure about deciding to use drugs, also from the NMSS:

NMSS: Plasmapheresis (Plasma Exchange)
Note: this treatment is still being investigated, and appears to have
limited use in specific cases/conditions.

The Cleveland Clinic: Deep Brain Stimulation for Movement Disorders

There are also 17 studies currently recruiting patients for new
methods of evaluating and treating MS.  Several of these are focused
on pediatric MS.  They are available from at

You'll have noticed that most of these sites are from the National
Multiple Sclerosis Society.  They have an excellent discussion of
early-onset MS (pediatric MS):

Please let me know if I can assist you further with this question (or any other),

I happen to work for the Blue Bird Clinic for Pediatric Neurology at
Texas Children's Hospital in Houston Texas. We are starting an M.S.
clinic in the next month or so. The doctor you want to make an
appointment with is Dr. Tim Lotze. Call 832-822-5046, hit option 3 and
ask for Sarina Fulcher. There are three other programs currently in
the U.S. who treat children with M.S. Texas Children's Hospital is the
5th best Pediatic hospital in the U.S. It is located at 6621 Fannin
St. Houston, Texas 77030. We have isolated 300 children in Texas with
M.S. We will be doing extensive research in this area. Hope this helps
a little. Please access our website at
Go to the Blue Bird Clinic and you will find a video that will enable
you to see all the services the Blue Bird Clinic has to offer.

Good luck.

Yes, Stonybrook is one of the other clinics. You will be impressed
with Dr. Lotze. Ask for Peggy Norman so I can meet you.
