Dr. Scott Newsome’s Story: The Road From Caregiver to MS Provider and Researcher – Part 2 – Episode 97 – Transcript

Join us for the second part of our conversation with Dr. Scott Newsome. On this episode, Dr. Newsome will be back to talk about how his role as an MS caregiver has impacted his career today as an MS specialist. We’ll also learn more about what Dr. Newsome has been focusing on and his exciting current research.

As promised, learn more about the current clinical trial that Dr. Newsome is working on, the TREAT-MS Clinical Trial for Multiple Sclerosis Patients.The TRaditional versus Early Aggressive Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis (TREAT-MS) Trial will help inform patients and the broader healthcare community on whether patients would most benefit from early, possibly more risky aggressive therapy or if starting with a less aggressive (and, often, less risky) therapy, followed by a switch if breakthrough disease activity occurs, is warranted. In addition, this study will help identify if there is a specific patient population or short-term biomarker(s) that is strongly predictive of long-term disability that can result from MS.
