New drug for MS is milestone for patients and research

24/7 Helpline 888-242-7730

A new drug, Ocrevus (ocrelizumab), has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat multiple sclerosis (MS). The National Multiple Sclerosis Society says it’s a “game changer” and Mayo Clinic neurologist Dr. Dean Wingerchuk says, “The approval of ocrelizumab is an important milestone both for people with MS and MS research.”

In a news statement released Wed. March 29, Dr. Billy Dunn, director of the Division of Neurology Products in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research says, “This therapy not only provides another treatment option for those with relapsing MS, but for the first time provides an approved therapy for those with primary progressive MS.”

First-of-its-kind app offers personalized rehab therapy for stroke patients

First-of-its-kind app offers personalized rehab therapy for stroke patients

A new, first-of-its-kind app is now available to support clinicians with decisions on best practice rehabilitation strategies for patients with arm impairment due to stroke.

The ViaTherapy app, developed through a worldwide collaboration of stroke rehab researchers co-led by Drs. Mark Bayley, Medical Director, Brain and Spinal Cord Rehab Program, Toronto Rehab and Steven Wolf of Emory University, is the result of a five-year process which aimed to make the Stroke Rehabilitation Guidelines more accessible to clinicians.

ViaTherapy translates the guidelines to a decision-making algorithm for occupational therapists and physiotherapists to use with their patients.

“The right treatment for a patient today may not be the right treatment for them in three weeks,” says Dr. Bayley. “In a sports setting, a good coach will always progress training as the player gets better. We tried to capture how a clinician should also evolve therapy to involve new treatments depending on how far along the patient is in their recovery.”
