This Merck-sponsored meeting, MS Medical Grand Rounds: Novel Perspectives on MS Disease Management, is a discussion-based meeting of one-hour duration that uses a patient case study format, similar to a hospital grand rounds meeting. The meeting will focus on cognitive decline and uncovering PIRA, how targeting the BTK pathway may be beneficial to patients, and managing progression with long-term treatment using IRT.
