Future of MS treatment and cure

Hello, I have a family member that was diagnosed with MS July 2011 with RRMS. He is taking Betaseron. He hasn't had any relapses but once back this past summer his arm was "tingly" for about 2 days but then it went away. My concern: do you feel that the researchers are making better progress in finding a cure for MS. I read so much about new medications that are coming on the market but they all will only keep the symptoms at bay, at best. I hope with all the new technology that the hope for a cure is coming soon. I am hopeful the nanoparticles and finding the fibrogen is like the right road for better treatment, but I realize this is not a cure. Your thoughts?
