All of the stories in this week’s column come from the recently held Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) forum, held Feb. 28 to March 2 in Dallas, Texas.
A reporter for MS News Today asked this question, but the answers provided frustrate me. One response was that it depends on how you define “cure.” Another pointed to progress in halting disease progression but didn’t address “cure.” Yet another said, “We still have some way to go.” But will there ever be a cure? I didn’t see a solid answer. Maybe there is none.
It is a question that multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, loved ones, and the larger community have asked for some time: “Will there be a cure for multiple sclerosis?”
MS News Today had the opportunity to ask that question of leaders at the Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) kick-off press conference of the fourth annual forum on Feb. 28 in Dallas, Texas.

There’s an app for almost everything, and more apps are being created to assist with MS evaluation or treatment. This one is designed to conduct walking, dexterity, vision, and cognition tests similar to those carried out in a neurologist’s office. But the advantage of this app is that a patient can use it anywhere.
MSCopilot, a software device designed for the self-assessment of multiple sclerosis (MS), distinguishes between patients and healthy controls, and potentially could be used in clinical practice for the monitoring of MS disability progression and patients’ response to treatment.
Matthieu Lamy, from Ad Scientiam, the developer of MSCopilot, presented the data at the fourth annual Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) Forum, Feb. 28 – March 2 in Dallas, Texas. Her poster presentation was titled “Digital Self-Assessment for Patients Living with Multiple Sclerosis: Clinical Results of the Mscopilot Multi-Center Study.”
