Abstract

I have made an intensive study of Disseminated Sclerosis, in its medical and social aspects. I have failed to enlighten the medical profession as to the cause of the disease, or to prove the efficacy of any particular line of treatment; but I have made certain suggestions for the elucidation of these mysteries, which may have far reaching effects in the hands of those more competent, and in better surroundings for research work, than the general practitioner. From my own experience among these cases, and from careful criticism of the literature, I have formed the following summaried opinions 1. Little or no progress has been made towards discovering the cause of this disease. 2. The attitude of the medical profession as a whole, is apathetic towards this disease, and is lacking in urge towards finding its cause. 3. No solution will be forthcoming, until colonisation is procured, for the purpose of concentrated research. 4. State grants should be awarded to sufferers, so that they might be spared the ignominy of being branded as paupers.
