MS forum workshop: Looking ahead - Advances in multiple sclerosis in the next decade - Athens, Greece, 22 October 2008
Clanet M., Ebers GC.
Sixteen years ago, there were no licensed treatments for multiple sclerosis (MS). Today, there are six Food and Drug Administration-approved therapies, with more on the horizon. Over the past few years a significant number of these new therapies have failed to fulfil their promise, but unanticipated developments have come to light that have spurred the development of ever more new approaches to therapy. It is clear that the pace of development in the MS field has been rapid and continues to accelerate, making the prediction of factors that will impact on clinical practice ever more critical.
