CNS

The Central Nervous System (CNS) is at the centre of everything we do. It is the part of our body that manages our ability to see, hear, walk, talk, taste, smell, think and do.

In short, the CNS runs our lives. Consequently, diseases of the CNS ruin lives. Many disorders of the CNS occur slowly and cause a gradual loss of function (known as ‘degenerative’); alternatively they may happen suddenly and cause life-threatening problems (known as ‘acute’).

 

Some of the more commonly known disorders within the CNS are Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease and Huntington’s disease. 

There is still much we do not know about the biological mechanisms behind disorders of the brain and the CNS. However, progress is being made, and our understanding is growing day by day.

 

We, at Teva are working tirelessly to turn this knowledge into insights and to turn these insights into treatments.
