Looking again is a luxurious for which scientists generally have little time. This XXV Anniversary Symposium, even if, provides the possibility of reminding us that during Belgium, the place the danger of constructing a number of sclerosis is one of the optimum on the earth, a superb guy to whom all of us pay tribute, I suggest Dr Ludo van Bogaert, in 1957, took the initiative in founding the Belgian examine workforce for a number of Sclerosis. it can sound conceited yet because that point participants of the Belgian learn team take place to have an honourable checklist of significant contributions to MS learn, fairly out of percentage to the monetary help they obtained for it. certainly, compared to the location in English conversing international locations, investment of MS examine has regularly been missed in our kingdom even though in 1958, performing on the recommendation of the Belgian examine crew, the Belgian nationwide MS Society was once based with the categorical item of accumulating funds for learn in addition to for social care. at the moment, the trouble in elevating money for study was once partially because fixing the matter of MS seemed nearly most unlikely. Scientists may perhaps it seems that simply too slowly enhance their skill to avoid and remedy the disorder. Media have been detached to MS which was once thought of to don't have any information worth, and the general public remained uninformed.
