Welcome to The Multiple Sclerosis Journey. Join us for a multimedia exploration of where MS treatment and research stands, what the future of care may hold, and the experiences of clinicians and patients as they collaborate on the frontlines of MS care.
The Multiple Sclerosis Journey will examine new insights on the importance of early diagnosis as well as accurate identification of the four MS phenotypes and how their recognition impacts treatment selection. Join us as we examine the importance of maintaining brain health in sustaining wellness and ability among patients with MS. Experience discussions of the role of patient and physician collaboration in sustaining continuity of care and in tailoring therapy to individual patient needs and preferences.

And, importantly, view the impact of MS through the eyes of individual patients who generously tell their stories of how they build their lives around their abilities, not their disabilities.

The road to a cure for MS lies ahead. Along the way, clinicians, physicians, and patients are sharing their stories of working toward that goal at The Multiple Sclerosis Journey. We invite you to join them.

Walk with us.

Continued monitoring and care needed when older patients with MS stop DMT

Whether to stop disease-modifying therapy (DMT) in older patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) can be a fraught topic. Guidelines acknowledge that there are limited data to guide the decision and suggest that clinicians and patients can make this call together.

Measuring the effects of MS on the mind

The first symptoms to come to mind at the mention of multiple sclerosis (MS) are likely to be walking difficulty, vision problems, and increased fatigue. During the past 25 years, many therapies that effectively reduce these symptoms have been introduced. These therapeutic successes have enabled researchers and neurologists to focus on an aspect of MS that sometimes has been overlooked: cognitive symptoms.

April Hester: Seeking new challenges with MS

Multiple sclerosis won’t stop April Hester from going the distance – literally. She and her husband have embraced exercise as an outlet to improve symptoms and quality of life, largely through hiking. After having hiked the Palmetto Trail in South Carolina three times, they now plan to hike the entire Appalachian Trail.

Seasons in the sun: The relationship between vitamin D and MS

About one in every three patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) uses complementary medicine in addition to conventional disease-modifying therapy.

Growing number of MS drugs brings challenges

Major federally funded studies are underway to help neurologists better assess a growing array of multiple sclerosis treatments, including competing tablets.
But in the near term, physicians and people with MS will continue to have to make certain educated guesses when choosing medications.
