Introduction

EXCEMED designed this programme in partnership with TOPEC Global.

Overview

New insights into MS pathogenesis and the discovery of new treatments have made daily clinical practice even more challenging for physicians involved in MS patient management. One of the significant issues in MS today is the timing of therapy and switching therapies from traditional first-line disease-modifying therapies to other first- or second-line therapies.

Learning objectives


• Illustrate the immunological factors involved in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis and pathological findings
• Integrate clinical, radiological and neurophysiological data to corroborate MS diagnosis
• Incorporate information regarding prognostic factors and the risks/benefit profile of currently available and new drugs for multiple sclerosis into treatment decisions

MS Alumni

The MS Alumni programme is an educational initiative of EXCEMED that is intended to provide ongoing support for young physicians and specialists in neurology.
