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.
Infusible disease-modifying therapies for multiple sclerosis (MS) are disproportionately more effective at quelling disease activity than oral drugs in younger patients, an advantage that fades by about age 45 years, Enrique Alvarez, MD, PhD, reported at the annual congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis.
Monitoring immunoglobulin levels regularly has become an imperative in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) on anti-CD20 agents in light of consistent findings from long-term, open-label studies of rituximab and ocrelizumab presented at the annual congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis.
Chronic active lesions in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) are common, predict more aggressive disease, and occur despite disease-modifying therapy, according to a study of about 200 patients with MS.
The central vein sign detected on 3T MRI had a high sensitivity and moderate specificity in identifying cases of multiple sclerosis and differentiating them from other, similar-looking conditions, according to a recent study in JAMA Neurology.
From popular Instagram posts to the cover of People magazine, actress Selma Blair has become the face of multiple sclerosis in America this year. Her public profile emphasizes her glamour, her grit, and something else – a drastic, expensive and potentially dangerous stem-cell treatment that “reboots” the immune system. Now, neurologists are getting questions about the procedure she’s undergoing, and patients are learning that it can have dramatic impact but isn’t appropriate for many patients.
