Annual RIMS Conference: 4-6 June 2020, Leuven (BE)
 
Teaching Course: 'Immunology of Working Mechanisms of DMT'
 
Multiple sclerosis is a complex inflammatory disorder of the central nervous system. This teaching course will provide a comprehensive overview of its basic immunological background, followed by a more specific orientation towards the mode of action of modern-age disease-modifying treatments. All this will be illustrated by real-world clinical therapeutic reasoning. The programme is under development and will be published soon. The teaching course is targeted to all professionals interested in MS (rehabilitation).
