    Default ECTRIMS/ACTRIMS conference, October 25-28, 2017 (Paris)

    The ECTRIMS/ACTRIMS conference has now ended (ECTRIMS = European Council for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis, ACTRIMS = Americas Council for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis).

    As in the past, I'll look over the abstracts to see if anything seems to be particularly interesting and will post about it here.

    So far, the conference seems to have quite a number of presentations from Genentech about Ocrevus.

    As I look at the abstracts, I pay less attention to the papers funded by the pharmaceutical companies as they tend to show only the favorable results about a drug. I look for research that is more objective, such as papers presented under the sponsorship of one of the MS organizations or the National Institutes of Health or a major research institution.

    I haven't yet looked at the abstracts carefully enough but here is a rundown on the conference that seems to highlight the major presentations:
