National MS Society partners with Accelerated Cure Project Online Forum to drive progress
Date:11/18/2013

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is partnering with the Accelerated Cure Project's (ACP) Multiple Sclerosis Discovery Forum (MSDF) an interactive online community and information portal for researchers and clinicians to develop resources and content focusing on progressive MS. Promoting engagement by the research community on issues in progressive MS is one aspect of a multifaceted approach to increasing progress in this underexplored area of research.

There has been substantial progress and FDA-approved therapies that can impact the underlying disease course in people with the more common, relapsing, forms of MS. However, none of these can stop progression or reverse the damage to restore function, which are critical for everyone with MS including those with progressive forms.

The Society is awarding MSDF a two-year, $150,000 grant that will enable it to focus additional coverage and resources on progressive forms of MS, an area that is receiving strategic focus by the National MS Society and the Progressive MS Alliance global organizations working together to connect resources and experts around the world to find the answers and develop the solutions to end progressive MS.

"We are accelerating the knowledge and collaboration needed to identify solutions for people affected by progressive MS," says Timothy Coetzee, PhD, Chief Advocacy, Services & Research Officer. "Our partnership with MSDF will connect researchers working to stop MS progression to each other and to us."

MSDF a project of ACP, which creates the site's content and directs its outreach activities was established in 2012 with an unrestricted grant from founding donor EMD Serono. It provides a free, neutral venue where members of the MS research community can learn about cutting-edge findings, participate in discussions, and access professional and research resources.
