Presentation – The Microbiome in Multiple Sclerosis

The Microbiome in Multiple Sclerosis by Nikolaos Grigoriadis & Alexey Boyko

24 April 2021, Expert meeting. Professors Grigoriadis and Boyko gave an update on the role of the microbiome in multiple sclerosis. They discuss the function of the microbiome, its importance in the health of the individual, and how its dysregulation is implicated in altered immune responses in MS. Consult here the slide deck.

ABSTRACT

The human microbiome consists of microbes that co-exist in the human body, usually in a symbiotic or mutually beneficial manner. This host-microbiome interaction is highly complex and can become dysregulated, as has been observed in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. In this presentation, Professors Grigoriadis and Boyko discuss the function of the microbiome, its importance in the health of the individual, and how its dysregulation is implicated in altered immune responses in MS. They also discuss how some currently approved disease-modifying therapies may alter the microbiome, and consider future directions for research on the role of the microbiome in MS.

Educational slide decks
endorsed by experts

Minimum two MS experts collaborate to produce an educational slide deck. These slide decks are presented (live) to ParadigMS members, peer reviewed and updated.
The slide decks are published on the ParadigMS website “on behalf of ParadigMS”.

Consensus publications

Based on the slide decks, publications are produced. These publications are peer reviewed and published as consensus publications.

Regional and national educational events

Regional (fe: Scandinavian countries, Benelux, …) or national events where state-of-the-art science is transferred to general neurologists and other care givers (nurses, etc) that are confronted with MS in their day to day practice.

Web-based educational tools and resources

Webinars can complement the educational events.

Medical education (ME) programs

The educational slide decks, events and webinars can be important building blocks of accredited educational programs.
