New Global Research Project Seeks to Identify Best Personal Treatment Options for Individuals with MS
January 26, 2017
A large global new partnership called ‘MultipleMS,’ coordinated by the Karolinska Institute in Sweden, has been awarded 15 million euros to find novel and better treatments for MS. Universities and companies across 12 European countries and the U.S. will unite efforts to develop personalized therapies for people living with MS. The collaborating researchers held a kick-off meeting in Paris on January 24.
With funding from Horizon 2020, a European Union Research and Innovation program, the team will combine clinical, genetic, molecular, MRI and lifestyle data from more than 50,000 people with MS and 30,000 healthy individuals to map out disease characteristics and treatment outcomes. They will use this information to identify predictors that can be used to tailor treatment approaches to the needs of individuals with MS.
