Closer and Closer to Understanding MS

At the ACTRIMS/ECTRIMS conference, a definitive answer was heard to one of the lingering questions about MS: is it really an autoimmune disease? Andrew Wilner, MD, offers insights from the floor.

Multiple sclerosis

New study findings do not suggest a need for a change in vaccine policy, but even a small increased risk could have an effect on public health.

Studies suggest that acupuncture can improve MS-related symptoms, but poor design makes it difficult to draw robust conclusions.

This, the least common MS disease course, carries the worst prognosis. Treatments are urgently needed to prevent or delay the rapid disease progression.

Childhood obesity is another potentially modifiable factor to reduce the risk of multiple sclerosis.

If an anti-NMDAR patient has evidence of demyelination on MRI, look for other antibodies that may complicate the picture.

Five recent studies on multiple sclerosis offer new insights: the take-home points are featured in this slide show.

At the ACTRIMS/ECTRIMS conference, one has the impression that the science of multiple sclerosis is moving forward at an unprecedented rapid rate. Live from the floor . . .
