Conclusions: Outlook on Future Research

A great variety of slow or persistent virus infections have been discussed, and each of these infections has its own fascination for us. We must, however, come to grips with the central problems that we face. It is in front of us on the landscape with its stern forbidding slopes, a mountain whose name is multiple sclerosis (MS). A few useful preliminary observations have been made, and some promising approaches have been seen, but the problem is still there. The great new hope that may help us scale this MS mountain is the possibility that it is caused by an infectious agent.
