Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. Biogen Idec developed the leading treatment for relapsing forms of MS. This treatment slows the progression of disability and reduces relapse. Olga Bobrovnikova is one particularly bright example of how a patient’s life is transformed by our therapies.

“The search for lost music has been a big motivator in my life and has enabled me to take the maximum benefit from my MS treatment.” Olga Bobrovnikova, MS patient
