Take 5 minutes to catch up on NeurologyLive®'s highlights from the week ending March 3, 2023.
Welcome to NeurologyLive®'s Friday 5! Every week, the staff compiles 5 highlights of NeurologyLive®'s widespread coverage in neurology, ranging from newsworthy study findings and FDA action to expert interviews and peer-to-peer panel discussions.
To recap the 2023 Americas Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ACTRIMS) Forum, February 23-25, in San Diego, California, the team has culminated some of the biggest pieces of news to offer updates on new developments in literature about MS to spread awareness on the prevention and treatment of the condition.
In this Peer Exchange series, a panel of experts in dementia discusses the latest progress in the treatment of Alzheimer disease, and the various therapies that have progressed through the pipeline. The NeurologyLive® series panel features Marwan Sabbagh, MD; Alireza Atri, MD, PhD; Sharon Cohen, MD, FRCPC; and Eric McDade, DO.
In the latest edition of our in-depth Q&A series, the chair of the Department of Neurology at Cedars Sinai Medical Center discussed the changes seen in the MS community, and how they are translated to the up-and-coming generation of neurologists. She also provided background on the difficulties of choosing optimal therapies, the transition towards observing more pathophysiological mechanisms than disease states, and some of the top advancements in the diagnosis of MS relative to other autoimmune disorders.
