Multiple Sclerosis Scientific Panel Interview
The former co-chairs of the Scientific Panel on Mutliple Sclerosis, Gaincarlo Comi and Ludwig Kappos, explain the work and aims of the panel. Watch the full video interview below:
The Scientific Panel on Multiple Sclerosis is dedicated to coordinate research and treatment guidelines for demyelinating diseases within the neurological societies in Europe. The Scientific Panel has a close collaboration with the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS), as reflected by co-positions of some members in the ECTRIMS board. In addition the panel is in contact with the ENS panel to facilitate future joined activities.
During the last years the panel produced several guidelines:
1. Guidelines on the use of anti-interferon-beta antibody measurements in multiple sclerosis
2. Guidelines for treatment of multiple sclerosis relapses
The guidelines were published in the European Journal of Neurology in 2005 and constituted chapters in the Handbook of Neurological Management published in 2006.
