Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory, demyelinating, and neurodegenerative disorder of the central nervous system that represents the most common cause of nontraumatic neurological disability in young adults. Approximately 10% to 15% of patients with MS have primary progressive MS (PPMS), which, from onset, involves unremitting disease progression, without distinct relapses. Advances in the understanding of the pathogenesis of PPMS have resulted in the development of improved therapeutic approaches. In this CME activity, a patient scenario will be utilized to demonstrate clinical decision-making when managing patients with PPMS.
