There have been a variety of approaches to studying conditions like multiple sclerosis, with each providing a new layer of knowledge for doctors which can ultimately help their own and other patients.

Michelle L. Apperson, MD, PhD, and a team at the University of California, Davis, have been looking at the various branches of the immune system amother other places trying to learn as much as they can about the condition. It has been a consistent point of study for Apperson who said they have seen a great amount of progress in recent years but there is much more work to be done. Apperson and close to 600 of the top minds in the field met in New Orleans for the annual ACTRIMS conference with a focus on learning more about the progressive form of multiple sclerosis.
