Every two years, the MS International Federation awards the Charcot Award, recognizing lifetime achievement in outstanding research into the understanding and treatment of MS. My special guest is this year's recipient of the Charcot Award, Professor Alan Thompson, who is being honored for what is truly a remarkable body of work.
We'll also share some encouraging news from the FDA about a biomarker for progressive MS clinical trials.
We'll tell you about the outcome of a study that shows high-efficacy disease-modifying therapies lead to less disability over time for people with relapsing-remitting MS.
And we'll give you the details about how you can participate in a clinical trial that's comparing the safety, efficacy, and cost-effectiveness of autologous hematopoietic stem cell therapy (aHSCT) with high-efficacy disease-modifying therapies.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
