Multiple sclerosis, Baclofen pump therapy. Surgeon carrying out an operation to implant an intrathecal pump in a patient to deliver the drug Baclofen. This drug functions by activating GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) receptors. It is used to alleviate symptoms of spastic movement disorders including cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. An intrathecal pump delivers drugs to the space between the spinal cord and its protective sheath. Multiple sclerosis is a progressive disorder in which the body's immune system attacks the myelin sheaths that cover nerve fibres. It can cause tingling, speech disorders, lack of coordination, paralysis and death.
