Frontiers in Multiple Sclerosis is a well-written collection of chapters based on a series of lectures that took place at the 13th Congress of the European Committee on Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis held in Istanbul, Turkey, November 2-5, 1997. Many of the chapters were updated in 1998, and some chapters are useful reviews of particular areas of multiple sclerosis (MS) research. The sections on the clinical spectrum of MS and cytokines are current and represent excellent overviews. The chapters on primary progressive MS and adhesion molecules present current views on these particular areas of MS research. Many of the figures in these sections well illustrate concepts that may be difficult for those clinicians not directly involved in the field to understand.
