We're also talking about a new mouse study that suggests starting treatment with Rituximab in people who are at risk of developing MS or in MS patients before they develop any motor symptoms may be a way to avoid inflammation and myelin loss, and actually prevent MS from further developing.
We'll tell you about a new nanosensor that can diagnose MS with 97% accuracy before symptoms even develop.
We'll share new data that shows Mayzent slowed physical disability progression and provided cognitive benefits to people with secondary progressive MS. And you'll hear about the study that shows that early use of Ocrevus may lower the need for a walking aid by 49% over 6 years.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
