Here's what is coming soon to NeurologyLive.

Every week, the NeurologyLive staff prepares this preview of what to expect from our coverage. This week on NeurologyLive, there are a number of hot topics that we will be posting throughout the week.

A feature story from NeurologyLive's October 2020 print issue covering the complex challenges in addressing sleep-disordered breathing, and the current alternative approaches being explored to overcome them, goes live Monday. In the piece, Nicola Davies, PhD, discusses how addressing sleep apnea at a physiological level may reasonably be more effective and have fewer adverse effects than more traditional treatment modalities that may only target one mechanism.

A new Q&A series dedicated to conversations with leaders in the neurology community, called NeuroVoices, premieres with the first half of a discussion with Jennifer Frontera, MD, professor of neurology, NYU Langone Grossman School of Medicine. She discussed the results of a recent study she and colleagues conducted which revealed a number of new neurologic symptoms associated with COVID-19 infection in patients.

Segment 4 of the “Rapid Readout: Expert Perspectives on Multiple Sclerosis” News Network series featuring Mark Freedman, MD, MSc, will air this week. Freedman gave an overview of the phase 3 OPTIMUM study involving ponesimod and how the reduction in MRI-based outcomes, including brain atrophy, is significant in supporting the clinical outcome of relapse rate reduction in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis.
