ECTRIMS 2022 | The impact of comorbidities on treatment-related decisions in MS

Helen Tremlett, PhD, The University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada, discusses the impact of comorbidities on treatment-related decisions in multiple sclerosis (MS). The presence of comorbidities may delay the initiation of disease-modifying therapies as well as reduce treatment adherence. More evidence is needed to better guide appropriate therapeutic choices; however, many people with comorbidities are excluded from clinical trials, limiting the ability to acquire evidence to inform treatment decisions. This interview took place at the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) Congress 2022 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
