Advancements and Challenges in Multiple Sclerosis: A Comprehensive Review in Lancet
Recent advancements in multiple sclerosis (MS) research, including improved diagnostic criteria and novel MRI techniques, have been highlighted in a new Lancet paper by researchers from the Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center (BNAC) and the Jacobs MS Center for Treatment and Research. The paper, part of the Lancet Seminar series, acknowledges the progress made in MS treatment and diagnosis, particularly the development of more sensitive diagnostic criteria and advanced MRI methods, some of which originated at the University of Buffalo. Despite these advancements, the paper emphasizes the ongoing challenges in managing MS, especially for patients living longer due to more effective treatments. Dejan Jakimovski, MD, PhD from BNAC is a first author, and Bianca Weinstock-Guttman, MD, physician with UBMD Neurology, is the senior author of this comprehensive review, which is part of a series that revisits specific diseases every five years.
