The 70th American Academy of Neurology Annual Meeting (AAN) held in Los Angeles, California, from April 21 to April 27, 2018. The meeting delivered the latest developments in science, education, and networking in new and innovative ways.
The assistant clinical investigator, Neuro Vascular Brain Imaging Unit, NINDS, further elaborated on the findings of a retrospective analysis that reported that approximately half of stroke patients who present outside of thrombolysis treatment time windows without large vessel occlusion may benefit from reperfusion therapy.
NfL levels were reduced during treatment with fingolimod, providing further evidence of the long-term benefit of the drug and demonstrating a greater impact of highly effective therapy in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis.
