 _________________________________________
 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.
