This CME/CNE program provides clinicians with insights and information on the latest advances in the treatment of relapsing multiple sclerosis (RMS). For both general neurologists, MS specialists, nurses and other healthcare professionals, fundamental appreciation of the immunopathology of MS will lead to a better understanding of the disease course and an appreciation of the emerging MS therapeutics that are now, more than ever, tailored to the intricacies of the immune system. Two decades of clinical experience with immunomodulatory treatments for MS point to distinct immunological pathways that drive disease relapses and progression. In light of this understanding, clinicians need to evaluate long-standing hypotheses regarding the role of the immune system in the disease and delineate key questions that although still unanswered are beginning to produce emerging evidence and novel treatments.

Investigation into the opportunity to reset the immune system, has resulted in advances in the field of immunology, along with the increasing recognition of inflammation as an important component of neurodegeneration. These advances are reshaping the conceptualization of disease pathophysiology, encouraging clinicians to grasp the potential implications for improved healthcare delivery to their patients in the future.
