Treatment with an immune-suppressing drug may help people with the incurable disease multiple sclerosis. A new study found that treatment with high doses of a generic cancer drug called cyclophosphamide cut the level of disability in patients. It also improved their physical functioning and reduced the number of brain lesions related to the condition.

Patients were able to recover physical functions that had been lost to the disease.

This study was published in the journal Archives of Neurology.
