______________________________________
The exponential growth in our knowledge
of multiple sclerosis has led to exciting 
new diagnostic and treatment
methodologies.  This program brings
together the most prominent scientists
from both clinical and basic research set-
tings to discuss current progress in the
diagnosis and treatment of multiple
sclerosis.  Topics covered at this conference
will provide a comprehensive survey of 
specific laboratory and clinical issues
within the context of four broad sessions;
novel diagnostic procedures, experimental
animal models, leukocyte trafficking and 
specific treatments.

This conference will be of interest to re-
searchers and physicians involved in the 
study of multiple sclerosis, autoimmune 
diseases and other neuroimmunological
disorders.  The program is designed to
encourage interaction between clinicians
and basic researchers.  The laboratory re-
search and clinical findings presented at this
conference will help to form the basis for 
new diagnostic and treatment strategies 
into the next century.
