ParadigMS Master Class – MS prognostication in practice: today and future perspectives

ParadigMS Foundation

ParadigMS had its first Master Class on Thursday, 20 of October, 2022!

The Master Class brought together health care practitioners participating both on site as well as online, by offering a learning experience that can positively impact their clinical practice. Question and answer sessions were used to encourage participants to get involved and engage with the speakers and other participants.

This Master Class was dedicated to MS prognostication in practice: today and future perspectives.

MS prognostication provides the neurologist with a comprehensive overview of each patient’s current and potential future disease status. It can be used to identify ‘red flags’ in the patient’s profile indicating the need for heightened vigilance and/or a more aggressive treatment approach.

In this one-hour masterclass, MS neurologists presented three related subjects. First, Prof Bart Van Wijmeersch presented a prognostication tool that can be used by neurologists in clinical practice. Next, cases were presented by Prof Patrick Vermersch where high efficacy pharmacological treatment is used depending on demographic factors, clinical manifestations, MRI observations and biomarkers. Finally, we concluded the session with Prof Mona Alkhawajah, with a view on the potential of virtual care and digital biomarkers to complement the available patient data for a neurologist.
