Top multiple sclerosis neurologists & scientists to headline CMSC Annual Meeting for healthcare professionals
2024-04-03
(Press-News.org) The leading research and educational conference for multiple sclerosis healthcare professionals in North America, the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) 38th Annual Meeting, returns to Nashville, Tennessee, May 29-June 1, 2024 at the Music City Center. The conference is renowned for its emphasis on reaching the interprofessional team involved in MS care, with learning opportunities for physicians, advanced practice clinicians, nursing professionals, pharmacists, mental health and rehabilitation specialists, dietitians, researchers, advocates and other members of the healthcare team involved in the management of people with MS.

            The CMSC Annual Meeting will feature daily opening lectures with some of the top minds in multiple sclerosis as well as accredited symposia, courses, poster sessions, and platform presentations relevant to all MS healthcare professionals. 

            Highlighted lectures include:

“Beyond the Surface: Challenging Our Perceptions of Multiple Sclerosis;” presented by Dr. Darin Okuda. In his John F. Kurtzke Memorial Opening Lecture on May 29th, Dr. Okuda will provide direct evidence of visual limitations and the relationship to the interpretation of MRI data. The value of MRI conformational measures focused on 3-dimensional shape, structure, and surface characteristics that expand upon an understanding of multiple sclerosis and related disorders will also be discussed.

Dr. Fred Lublin will deliver the Presidential Lecture, “Multiple Sclerosis- 30 Years on From First Therapy: What Have We Learned,” on Thursday, May 30th. Dr. Lubin will cover how the explosion of information around disease pathogenesis, new therapeutic approaches and targets, 20+ new approved agents, improved MS diagnostics, better understanding of disease course and world-wide collaboration have improved the lives of people with MS.  He also will discuss how to utilize this experience in moving forward to better treat multiple sclerosis and in finding a cure.

The Whitaker Lecture on Friday, May 31st, by Dr. Jeffrey Cohen will be on “Updates on Cellular Therapies for Multiple Sclerosis.”  Several emerging cellular therapies have the potential to address the unmet needs of patients with highly active disease who experience continued relapses or new MRI lesions despite treatment with the available 20+ disease modifying therapies. Dr. Cohen will provide the latest update on these novel therapies. 

  The Donald Paty Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Ann Yeh on June 1st.  She will discuss “Changing the Trajectory of Progression in Pediatric Onset MS.”  She will focus specifically on the trajectory of outcomes in pediatric MS, and the importance of emerging evidence related to pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches that may change this trajectory.  Dr. Yeh will also present several interventional strategies that are currently being tested in young people with MS.

            “This year’s program features some of the leading medical authorities in evolving areas of MS science, diagnosis and treatment,” said June Halper, CEO, CMSC.  “MS is a complex and multi-faceted chronic illness, and healthcare professionals at the CMSC Annual Meeting will be immersed in the latest research findings as well as care strategies that can lead to optimal outcomes for patients and long-term disease management plans.”

            For more information about the CMSC Annual Meeting and the events and programs described, visit www.mscare.org/2024.  Early bird registration is in effect until April 30th and the all-inclusive registration fee for the CMSC Annual Meeting includes access to the entire conference program, exhibits, organized meals, networking forums and most social events.

Novel fabrication technique takes transition metal telluride nanosheets from lab to mass production

Novel fabrication technique takes transition metal telluride nanosheets from lab to mass production
2024-04-03
Transition metal telluride nanosheets have shown enormous promise for fundamental research and other applications across a rainbow of different fields, but until now, mass fabrication has been impossible, leaving the material as something of a laboratory curiosity rather than an industrial reality. But a team of researchers has recently developed a novel fabrication technique—the use of chemical solutions to peel off thin layers from their parent compounds, creating atomically thin sheets—that looks set to finally deliver on the ultra-thin substance's promise. The researchers describe their fabrication technique in a study published in Nature on April 3. In ...

Two Jurassic mammaliaforms from China shed light on mammalian evolution

Two Jurassic mammaliaforms from China shed light on mammalian evolution
2024-04-03
Mammaliaforms are extinct and extant organisms that are closely related to mammals. Studying mammaliaforms helps scientists understand the evolutionary processes that led to various mammalian features. In two consecutive studies in Nature, Dr. MAO Fangyuan and Dr. ZHANG Chi from the Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology (IVPP) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, together with colleagues from Australia and the United States, recently reported two Jurassic mammaliaforms from China, revealing the earliest dental diversification, mandibular middle ears, and articular-quadrate joint transformation of mammaliaforms. The ...

Socioecologic factors and racial differences in breast cancer prognostic scores

2024-04-03
About The Study: The findings of this study suggest that the consequences of structural racism extend beyond inequities in health care to drive disparities in breast cancer outcome. Additional research is needed with more comprehensive social and environmental measures to better understand the influence of social determinants on aggressive estrogen receptor-positive tumor biology among racial and ethnic minoritized women from disadvantaged and historically marginalized communities.  Authors: Gregory S. Calip, Pharm.D., M.P.H., Ph.D., of the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, is the corresponding author.  To access the embargoed study: ...

Disparities in mentorship and implications for surgical resident education and wellness

2024-04-03
About The Study: In a survey study of residents of all accredited general surgery programs, one-third of trainees reported lack of meaningful mentorship, particularly non-white or Hispanic trainees. Although education and wellness are multifactorial issues, mentorship was associated with improvement; thus, efforts to facilitate mentorship are needed, especially for minoritized residents.  Authors: Yue-Yung Hu, M.D., M.P.H., of Northwestern University in Chicago, is the corresponding author.

Researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have developed a programmable metafluid with tunable springiness, optical properties, viscosity and even the ability to transition between a Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluid.  The first-of-its-kind metafluid uses a suspension of small, elastomer spheres — between 50 to 500 microns — that buckle under pressure, radically changing the characteristics of the fluid. The metafluid could be used in everything ...

The fossils, from the Jurassic Period, are of two different ...

JAMA paper: In people with opioid use disorder, telemedicine treatment for HCV was more than twice as successful as off-site referral

JAMA paper: In people with opioid use disorder, telemedicine treatment for HCV was more than twice as successful as off-site referral
2024-04-03
BUFFALO, N.Y. – People with opioid use disorder who have hepatitis C virus (HCV) were twice as likely to be successfully treated and cured from HCV if they received facilitated telemedicine treatment at their opioid treatment program (OTPs) than if they were referred off-site to another provider. Those are the findings published today by a University at Buffalo team of researchers in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The study is one of only a few randomized controlled ...

2024-04-03
Tokyo Medical and Dental University (TMDU) researchers discover that known genetic variants might account for a large portion of chronic kidney diseases of unclear origin Tokyo, Japan – Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is extremely prevalent among adults, affecting over 800 million individuals worldwide. Many of these patients eventually require therapy to supplement or replace kidney functions, such as dialysis or kidney transplant. While most CKD cases originate from lifestyle-related factors or diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, the underlying ...
