  1. 2019 CMSC Practical Guidelines for the Selection of Disease-Modifying Therapies in Multiple Sclerosis
    This guideline was developed by a group of multiple sclerosis (MS) specialists, convened by the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC), to serve as an educational guide and concise summary of available data and professional recommendations on the selection of disease-modifying therapy (DMT) for MS. The group met in Chicago, IL, in 2018 at a conference independently sponsored by the CMSC to discuss and debate current concepts on DMT use.
  2. A Survey of Risk Tolerance to Multiple Sclerosis Therapies
    NARCOMS, the CMSC Patient Registry, is led by a team of world-renowned MS clinicians and researchers.  Date from NARCOMS has provided the MS community with a treasure trove of new information about MS.  This article reflects outcomes of a study looking at a person’s ability to tolerate risk when considering choices of disease modifying therapy in partnership with his or her prescriber.  Kudos to the NARCOMS team for once again publishing new and exciting information.

The Use of Disease-Modifying Therapies in Multiple Sclerosis: Principles and Current Evidence
A Consensus Paper by the Multiple Sclerosis Coalition, Updated on March 2017

The member organizations of the Multiple Sclerosis Coalition* have collaborated to summarize the current evidence about disease modification in multiple sclerosis (MS) and to provide support for broad access to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved MS disease-modifying therapies for people. Endorsed by each of the seven MS Coalition organizations, this document serves as an evidence-based resource and reference tool for the clinical management of MS that may also be utilized in advocacy efforts to improve access to approved disease-modifying therapies for people living with MS.

*The Multiple Sclerosis Coalition (see p. 32), which was founded in 2005 to increase opportunities for cooperation and provide greater opportunity to leverage the effective use of resources for the benefit of the MS community, includes Accelerated Cure Project for Multiple Sclerosis, Can Do Multiple Sclerosis, Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers, International Organization of Multiple Sclerosis Nurses, Multiple Sclerosis Association of America, Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the United Spinal Association.
