The research team is on site again for another year of reporting on the latest and hottest news presented at the annual Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) Forum 2018. This year’s meeting is held in San Diego, California from February 1-3.
Themed, “Therapeutic Targets in MS: the Frontier and Future of Disease Modifying Therapy,”, the forum is packed with leading researchers/clinicians presenting on hot topics in the field. Emerging concepts in the pathology, risk factors and imaging tools are sure to be news-worthy. Sessions are also planned on different cells—lymphocytes, microglia, macrophages, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes—and what role they play in MS. Moreover, the session on cutting-edge developments with topics such as novel therapeutics, and genetic influences of MS are for sure to be of interest.
