The first standalone forum held by the Madison, Wisconsin-based Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) gets underway on Thursday, Feb. 18 and runs through Feb. 20 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The forum ‘Progressive MS: From Bench to Bedside and Back’, is at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans at 601 Loyola Ave.
This ACTRIMS Forum will be mainly focused on progressive multiple sclerosis. This is the less common form of the disease and for which therapies are urgently needed, since patients are typically less responsive to treatment in comparison to patients with relapsing-remitting MS, the most common form of the disease.
If you are heading to New Orleans or simply following the conference online, here’s a list of some articles relevant for ACTRIMS 2016.
