On-demand webinar – How to Mitigate Risks in MS

This session explains on How to Mitigate Risks in MS. By Maura Pugliatti.

9th December 2021, Pre-MENACTRIMS symposium, as a warm-up for the Sixth MENACTRIMS Congress, ParadigMS Foundation organised this enriching Pre-MENACTRIMS Symposium. Here you can review the full keynote on how to mitigate risks in MS.


No two MS patients are the same, and yet only a limited number of disease-modifying therapies are available for MS neurologists to treat their patients. This session guides you in how to manage and mitigate risks associated with treating MS patients. You will take away a set of key messages stemming both from Professor Pugliatti’s own experience and literature reports, underlying risk mitigation in MS treatment.
