Abstract

Treatments for multiple sclerosis are still being investigated despite the long history of the disease. Some disease-modifying drugs were introduced into clinical practice during the last decade. However, their high cost, low safety profile, and most important, limited benefit drive many patients to discontinue these treatments and seek alternatives. This paper describes two alternative treatments that appear particularly effective — bee venom therapy, and low dose naltrexone.
