A growing number of people living with MS are turning to cannabis for symptom management. But which MS symptoms have responded to being treated with cannabis? Where should someone buy medical cannabis? And is using medical cannabis even legal?
Dr. Michelle Cameron returns to the podcast to discuss the risks and benefits of using cannabis for symptom management. Dr. Cameron is a neurologist and physical therapist, as well as a professor in the Department of Neurology at Oregon Health & Science University.
We're also sharing some long overdue good news from United Airlines for passengers who use wheelchairs.
We'll tell you about the first adaptive clinical trial for people living with progressive MS in Australia.
We'll give you the details of the FDA's clearance of an artificial intelligence platform designed to analyze MRI scans to detect and monitor MS disease activity.
And we're sharing promising results from a Phase 1 clinical trial that focused on using neural stem cells to stop disease progression among people living with secondary progressive MS.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
