Landmark paper to guide neurologists through the complex process of distinguishing MS from other mimicking disorders

National MS Society

Research News for Research Advocates and RA Staff Liaisons


We have just posted a bulletin on the national Web site (pasted below) announcing the publication of a landmark paper to guide neurologists through the complex process of distinguishing MS from other mimicking disorders (a process known as differential diagnosis).

  • These guidelines were developed by an international task force convened by the National MS Society.
  • The guidelines should greatly enhance the accuracy of diagnosing MS and its look-alikes, and speed the delivery of appropriate therapies.
  • Because of its potential impact, we have paid the fees needed to make this an open access paper, meaning that anyone going to the paper online may download the full text for free.

Please share the "For Professionals" version (see links below) of this bulletin with your local healthcare professionals, especially your CAC and those on your Referrals List.

The "For Professionals" bulletin is available as a PDF from the Intranet (in Research Section), or as a Web link:
