CASA-MS Progressive MS study

If you know someone with multiple sclerosis, you probably want to know why MS progresses so quickly and severely for 10-15% that they need 24-hour care.

To find answers, researchers at the Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center (BNAC) have created the CASA-MS Study.

To learn more about the study, watch the video, and read published results so far, CLICK HERE.

We invite you to make a gift to support the next stage of the research which includes additional more extensive testing and analysis. 

We are grateful to The Annette Funicello Research Fund for Neurological Diseases for its generous 2022 $100,000 challenge grant which stimulated more than $100,000 in seed money for this study. This was accomplished, in great part, by the people in the windows of CASA-MS below! These gifts and others provided $500,000 for the first part of this study which included design and collection of preliminary data, enrollment of the subjects, examinations, blood tests, cognitive tests, imaging, and analysis of the preliminary findings.
