Early disease-modifying treatment options have mainly focused on inflammatory aspects of the disease. Recently, the neurodegenerative features have received more attention in experimental models, paraclinical assessments and the evaluation of drug effects. Fumaric acid esters (FAEs) as orally available immunomodulatory and neuroprotective compounds have thus advanced to a highly interesting MS treatment option. Here, we will review the pharmaceutical history of FAEs, their immunomodulatory and putative neuroprotective mechanisms of action and clinical …
