The treatment of multiple sclerosis has come a long way in recent years. However, there is a lot more to be done. There is optimism that over time treatment can be even more effective and help even more patients as new treatment methods are developed.

It was a short trip from University College London to the annual ECTRIMS conference, held this year at the ExCeL, for Alan Thompson, MD, who said he has seen momentum building to help patients not only during his 30 years in practice but also since just last year when the conference was held in Barcelona. With new treatments being approved for relapsing multiple sclerosis, and encouraging news coming in the progressive forms, Thompson said doctors treating the disease can now approach care more confidently that there are now options to present to their patients with more just over the horizon.
