Targeting MS Pathology: Choosing the right treatment for MS at the right time

Choosing the right treatment for MS at the right time to effectively target MS pathology is a crucial clinical challenge. Professor Laura Airas describes the in vivo profiling of MS patients, which is a developing sub-discipline in MS care. Treatment choices and timing may be improved through the emergence of a new paradigm in MS management based on assessment and monitoring of multiple active pathomechanisms rather than simply clinical presentation. Watch the clips below to enhance your understanding of MS.
