A decade ago, the International Progressive MS Alliance didn't exist. Today, it can be credited with changing the global conversation about progressive MS research, elevating the progressive MS research agenda and moving the work forward.
Recently, the Alliance announced the details of an ambitious strategic plan that will guide their work over the next 3 years.
Joining me to talk about the new goals that were set by the Alliance, and what that means for people affected by progressive MS, is the Chair of the Alliance Scientific Steering Committee, Dr. Robert Fox.
The MS International Federation conducted a survey and we're wondering whether the responses have raised a larger question.
We're also talking about a study that showed how an online mindfulness program significantly improved depression for people living with MS.
We're sharing study results that show your nose knows when your DMT is working well for you.
We'll also share the details about an exciting undertaking at the University of Colorado that may lead to treating people so that they completely avoid the symptoms of MS.
And we'll tell you about a small trial that demonstrated the effectiveness of an experimental stem cell therapy as a potential treatment for progressive MS.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
