Highlights in Disease-Modifying Therapies From ECTRIMS2020


Dr Patricia Coyle from Stony Brook University Medical Center in New York highlights new data on disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) from the 8th Joint ACTRIMS-ECTRIMS Meeting, MSVirtual2020.

Focusing on relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), Dr Coyle discusses new research that further explores the efficacy and rebound effects of DMTs, 24 of which are approved in the United States for this patient population.

She reports on results from a database study comparing DMTs vs moderate-efficacy drugs and escalating treatment in the first-line setting, a cohort of pediatric patients receiving adult-approved teriflunomide, and an exploration of fingolimod rebound syndrome.
