Precision Medicine in MS

This session explains Precision Medicine in MS. By Prof Tjalf Ziemssen.

30th June 2022, Seventh ParadigMS Symposium

ParadigMS Foundation organised organised in collaboration with the Belgian Multiple Sclerosis Study Group and endorsed by the Belgian Neurological Society, the ParadigMS Seventh Belgian Symposium  that took place on the 30th of June both onsite and online. Here you can review the full keynote on Precision Medicine in MS.


Precision medicine is a relatively new concept that has gathered considerable attention over the past 10  years or so. Within the context of multiple sclerosis (MS), precision medicine involves the use of genetics, proteomics, advanced neuroimaging, and biomarkers to accurately define the disease in individuals. In this way, the objective is to improve clinical outcomes by providing patients with specific treatment and care through innovative approaches. This presentation by Prof Tjalf Ziemssen and Prof. Grigoriadis provides the background to precision medicine in MS and presents a roadmap showing how precision medicine can be implemented into today’s clinical care and treatment of MS patients.
