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.

Unseasonably warm weather linked to MS symptoms

Warm-weather events, even just unseasonably warm spells, may exacerbate multiple sclerosis (MS) symptoms and may lead to more acute care visits, according to an analysis of patients at the Palo Alto (Calif.) Veterans Affairs clinic. The findings could have implications for patient management, especially in the wake of global warming that will make such patterns more frequent.

Racial disparities in MS disease-modifying therapies

A new analysis of the North American Registry for Care and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (NARCRMS), a physician-based longitudinal registry, underscores discrepancies in care between Whites and Blacks and Hispanics. The research also found that Blacks and Hispanics with multiple sclerosis (MS) experience more severe disease and are less likely than Whites to initiate disease-modifying therapies (DMTs).

Survey reveals profound pandemic changes to MS care

Clinicians across the Unites States who specialize in multiple sclerosis (MS) care report profound changes to their clinical practice because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the results of a nationwide survey through the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The findings were published online in Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders.

Ponesimod enters field of DMTs for relapsing forms of MS

The Food and Drug Administration has approved once-daily oral ponesimod (Ponvory, Janssen) for the treatment of relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS) in adults. Results from a pivotal phase 3 clinical trial show the drug was associated with nearly a third fewer annual relapses, compared with the MS drug teriflunomide.

Physical therapy interventions improve sexual health in MS

A range of physical therapy interventions – particularly pelvic floor muscle training and mindfulness training – can help alleviate sexual dysfunction in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), according to a new study.
