There is an urgent, worldwide need for life-changing solutions for people affected by progressive MS. The International Progressive MS Alliance is working to answer that need, rallying the global community in an unprecedented collaboration of MS organisations, researchers, healthcare professionals, pharmaceutical companies, trusts, foundations, donors and people affected by MS.
We gathered some of the leading experts in MS to discuss the state of progressive MS research and treatment today, the vital work of the Progressive MS Alliance and what must be done next to develop breakthrough treatments in progressive MS.
Stuart Nixon facilitated the panel discussion. Diagnosed with MS at age 18, Stuart serves as co-chair of the Scientific Research Strategy Committee of the UK MS Society and is a recognised global advocate for ensuring people affected by MS can get the support they need to have a good quality of life.
