With so many disease-modifying therapies out there, how do you decide which drug to use in your patient with multiple sclerosis? BrainWaves makes it simple. In this interview with Dr. Christopher Perrone, we review the US FDA-approved therapies for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, their mechanisms of action, side effects, and benefits. BrainWaves podcasts and online content are intended for medical education only and should not be used to guide medical decision-making in routine clinical practice. Any cases discussed in this episode are fictional and do not contain any patient health-identifying information. The content in this episode was approved and vetted by Salim Chahin.
