At present, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) have approved drugs for Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) and Secondary Progressive MS (SPMS). In this paper, modern therapeutic strategies for MS are reviewed. A comprehensive research in MEDLINE, PUBMED, and SCIENCEDIRECT databases using two Boolean phrases {i.e. 1. [(Multiple Sclerosis) and (Disease Modifying Therapies)] and 2. [(Multiple Sclerosis) and (Neuroprotective Therapies)]} yielded more than 1,5000 articles in total. Therefore, for the purposes of this paper, articles written within the last decade were considered for review.
