Rapid advances in multiple sclerosis (MS) research have produced diagnostic achievements and new treatments that are helping clinicians diagnose and potentially treat MS in the earliest phases of the disease. It is with this sense of optimism that the authors of Fast Facts: Multiple Sclerosis have detailed the latest developments for use in clinical practice by all members of the multidisciplinary team. Highlights include: * A refreshingly readable account of the latest evidence on disease pathomechanisms * A concise overview of investigations, diagnostic criteria and red flags for differential diagnoses * A holistic approach to all signs and symptoms, and proactive relapse management * An evidence-based analysis of all the latest disease-modifying drugs, including when to treat, choice of drug and risk versus benefit * A detailed outline of emerging therapies * Case histories that will guide treatment decisions * Special considerations for MS during pregnancy, and in children and the elderly Addressing the issues that will make the biggest differences to patient care, Fast Facts: Multiple Sclerosis is essential reading for all healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with this complex disease.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A good reference for the complex process of diagnosing MS and for understanding the why, when and who ... Overall, a very useful book with some interesting pictorial elements." Jane Bradshaw, Lead Nurse Specialist in Neurology, UK PCNS, Steering Committee member
"An excellent summary of what is currently known and a model of commonsense and clinical wisdom. I am sure that many patients and those close to the disease will benefit from the book and understand more clearly what is known and what still needs to be done." Professor Alastair Compston, Head of Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Cambridge, June 2014
"I highly recommend Fast Facts: Multiple Sclerosis. It is substantial, very informative and highly researched - a book to be proud of. It is a fantastic book for therapists and clinicians, and a much-needed resource in South Africa." Non Smit, Director, Multiple Sclerosis South Africa, Western Cape, July 2014
"This third edition comes at exactly the right time and reflects the dynamic nature of the field, with plenty for healthcare professionals of all backgrounds. There are well described pieces on fatigue management (e.g. the FACETS programme), baclofen pumps, intravesical botulinum toxin and functional electrical stimulation. Central is the status of disease modification in the relapsing-remitting phase, and the new oral (e.g. fingolimod) and monoclonal antibody approaches (e.g. natalizumab, alemtuzumab) are well described. In summary, a well researched and written book, which is a true current guide in the battle with multiple sclerosis." Jeremy Chataway MA PhD FRCP, Consultant Neurologist, Queen Square MS Centre, National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, London, UK. For the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, July 2014
