MS Clinical Care Connection
A Resource for Healthcare Professionals

Cannabis and MS
In recent years, medical cannabis has attracted increased attention by both the healthcare and patient communities as a potential therapy for MS. As current medical research continues to elucidate the potential therapeutic benefit and potential risks of medical cannabis, our new white paper: Cannabis for Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms, provides a comprehensive review of the role of cannabis in MS care and is a resource that can assist you in talking about cannabis with your patients. Additionally, an evidence-based guideline about the use of complementary therapies in MS, developed by the American Academy of Neurology, may also serve as a valuable resource for you and your patients.
From ACTRIMS 2018
In a study presented at ACTRIMS entitled: Five Years before Multiple Sclerosis Onset: Phenotyping the Prodrome, researchers concluded "that it is possible to measure and phenotype the MS prodrome five years before the clinical recognition of MS. The findings inform the etiologically-relevant time window and suggest that an earlier recognition and diagnosis of MS is feasible."
Participating in MS Research; information for your patients
The National MS Society joined the MS Minority Research Engagement Partnership Network—spearheaded by the Accelerated Cure Project—to characterize current barriers to minority participation in MS research and identify culturally appropriate solutions. Please share these resources with your patients:
