Presenters at the cutting-edge developments in MS session deliver the newest key findings of pivotal studies. At the session, we heard about a novel therapeutic involved in remyelination, pathways that inhibit remyelination, a genetic risk factor that may also target the cell functions in the central nervous system, and reduced adverse events with extended interval dosing of an approved disease-modifying therapy.
Read on for highlights from the #ACTRIMS2018 cutting edge developments in MS research session.
Gut microbiome, blood brain barrier, risk factors—these are all emerging concepts in MS. Scientists have immersed themselves in research in these areas because of the promise they hold in finding a cure for MS. In fact, in the past couple of decades, there has been a remarkable expansion of new treatments for MS, novel imaging techniques that allow for earlier and quicker diagnosis, and great new ideas that all started as an “emerging concept”. In this session, researchers present the new ideas/concepts that inform us about how MS works, factors involved in MS and new ways to measure and capture disease activity and treatment options for people with MS.
