Keeping Up With Advances in MS: Cases in Diagnosis and Treatment, A Case-Based Roadmap for Improved Patient Outcomes in Multiple Sclerosis

To participate in this activity, please:

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, progressive, and disabling inflammatory neurologic condition that causes more disability than any other nontraumatic neurologic condition. Early diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of disease progression is fundamental to optimizing management of patients with MS. Join Edward Fox, MD, PhD, and Matthew Schindler, MD, PhD, in an interactive case-based roadmap for improved outcomes in patients with MS. In addition to addressing diagnostic challenges, Drs. Fox and Schindler share their insights into integrating advances in the pharmacologic treatment of patients with MS, focusing on the safety and efficacy of targeted therapies.
