LUNCH WORKSHOP AT THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE (AAAS) ANNUAL MEETING

WHAT:

An educational lunch workshop, "Anti-interferon Beta Antibodies in MS Care: A Consensus," featuring world-renowned neurology experts who will explore the issue of neutralizing antibodies (NAbs). The discussion will focus on:

  • Challenges in multiple sclerosis care and research
  • The model of the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) in meeting these challenges
  • Previous consensus conferences utilizing this model
  • The issue of anti-interferon beta antibodies in multiple sclerosis
  • Overview of additional therapeutic categories impacted by NAbs (anemia, diabetes, growth hormone deficiency)
  • NAbs in the treatment of multiple sclerosis: global consensus development

    WHY:

    The advent of biologics (protein-based medications) has benefited countless patients with chronic diseases including cancer, anemia, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and multiple sclerosis.

    However, there has been an unexpected consequence: the development of NAbs, in which the body perceives protein-based therapies to be foreign and mounts an immune response against them. As treatment with biologics increases, the hot debate continues about whether NAbs are just innocent immunological bystanders or a natural defense mechanism that diminishes the efficacy of biologic therapies. Professionals need expert synthesis and consensus.

    This program will outline in workshop style how a consensus was developed by the CMSC, the leading professional association in multiple sclerosis care.
