Contributions of the Department of Veterans Affairs to the Epidemiology of Multiple
John F. Kurtzke is a well-known and beloved figure in the CMSC
and, of course, the man behind the scale which bears his name. His invited
review appears in Multiple Sclerosis (Multiple Sclerosis 2008;14:1007-1012).
In it he revisits the study of World War II and Korean Conflict veterans and
the visionary treatment trial which has contributed significantly to current
progress. In this review Dr. Kurtzke champions the contributions of
others to knowledge about MS and expresses gratitude to peers and
participants. As we continue the effort to
change the face of MS,
our admiration acknowledges this landmark work and Dr. Kurtzke's
contribution by providing the original article for your interest.
