Every year, the American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) hold meetings to present on topics of interest to the multiple sclerosis community. This year, the annual AAN meeting was held in Vancouver, Canada in April and the CMSC meeting took place in Maryland at the beginning of June.
After each meeting, MSAA condenses all of the information presented at these meetings, which is meant for medical professionals, to easy-to-read articles to keep you informed about what is new in the world of multiple sclerosis.
Both meetings this year covered a range of topics, but here are a few items highlighted in MSAA’s annual review of these meetings:
- Updates on a sampling of approved and experimental treatments
- Trial results for new symptom-management treatments and programs
- Interesting studies on pediatric MS, risk of MS, and children of parents with MS
- Various other topics, such as gut immunity, the effects of poor sleep, and gaps in public awareness about MS
