This CME program, derived from content presented at the Advanced Curriculum for Multiple Sclerosis 2020 Course in West Palm Beach, Florida, will highlight novel S1P-based therapeutics to improve outcomes and reduce disability in patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis. The expert faculty will review the recent science of newer S1P-based therapeutics for the treatment of patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis. Current safety, efficacy and tolerability data for novel S1P therapeutics for the treatment of relapsing multiple sclerosis will be analyzed and clinical relevance debated. The faculty will review how to apply early diagnosis and early intervention therapeutic strategies to reduce brain volume loss and improve patient outcomes.
