Expert Illustrations & Commentaries: Exploring the Role of BTK Inhibition in the Treatment of Multiple Sclerosis

Release Date: July 30, 2021
Expiration Date: July 30, 2022

Activity Overview

This activity is a video-based program in which 2 experts discuss the etiology and management of multiple sclerosis (MS). In this activity, the faculty focus on the pathophysiology of MS as it relates to Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK), as well as clinical trial data on the efficacy and safety of novel BTK inhibitors in MS treatment. Their discussion is enriched with the use of video animations to illustrate MS pathophysiology, as well as the mechanism of action of BTK inhibitors in MS. The use of these animated segments helps make somewhat complicated subject matter more easily understood. This unique format is designed to help clinicians identify best practices in the diagnosis and management of MS and to improve outcomes for their patients with this disease.
