More news from ECTRIMS 2016: Watch presentations and interviews with leading MS experts
Please watch the interesting debate on the question “Do we still have unmet needs in MS therapy” between Gavin Giovannoni and Heinz Wiendl, comparing the ‘old’ immune-modulating therapies with the ‘new’ immunosuppressing treatments.
A new way to distinguish between MS types based on metabolic profiles is proposed by Daniel Anthony from the University of Oxford who is one of the winners of this year’s GMSI award. He talks about biomarker analysis in blood using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR) as a tool to help remove uncertainty with MS staging.
In an interview taken at ECTRIMS, Prof Fredrikson from the Karolinska University Hospital Huddinge, Stockholm, speaks about the importance of differential diagnosis in MS patients, stating that even in well-established MS clinics there is a 5-10% rate of misdiagnosis.
