MS Views and news reports that almost 12,000 neurologists and researchers met in New Orleans in April 2012 to present findings at the American Academy of Neurology’s annual meeting. Over 500 scientific talks and display posters looked at research to stop MS progressing and restore function. The MS sessions were frequently standing-room only, and have grown bigger every year. Among these were the latest results from clinical trials of new MS therapies, risk factors, hidden disease mechanisms, rehabilitation techniques, CCSVI, and many more. For free access to brief summaries of the conference, go to the American Academy of Neurology’s Website.
In the majority of cases, the studies presented are considered to be preliminary. Many of the results are going to be analyzed more thoroughly, and then tend to be published in peer-reviewed science and medical journals. Confidence in a study’s findings usually grows when it is repeated by other researchers, with similar outcomes.
• STOP: The first results of late-phase clinical trials were reported. If these treatments are found to be effective and safe, some of them may be available in 2012 and 2013. Other studies looked at understanding risks, benefits and modes of action of available and new treatments.
• RESTORE: Rehabilitation to deal with cognitive changes was examined. Some presentations also explored imaging methods and pathology findings related to Chronic Cerebrospinal Vascular Insufficiency (CCSVI) and MS.
• END: Knowing the risk factors that control who gets MS, and also what their MS will be like, is vital for preventing MS and the worsening of MS symptoms. Some studies focused on interactions of gender, genes, and vitamin D levels.
