Event Time: Thursday April 27, 2017 7:00 am to 9:00 am
Topic(s): General Neurology, MS and CNS Inflammatory Disease
Director(s): Michael Racke MD
Description: Improved management of multiple sclerosis (MS) would result from understanding of MS pathogenesis, risk factors, immune abnormalities, and mechanism of action of MS treatments, including understanding of complications that can result from those treatments. Faculty will discuss new understanding in MS pathogenesis and how immune interventions can alter disease pathogenesis for an improved clinical outcome, and the mechanism of action of current MS therapies. This program complements C201: Multiple Sclerosis Overview: Clinical Pearls and C214: Multiple Sclerosis Overview: Clinical Advances, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to identify steps in MS pathogenesis, treatments used in MS management, and how approved therapies affect the immune response and potential complications resulting from those interventions.
