MS is a disease with a progressive spectrum and many patients transition from the earlier stage of relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) to secondary progressive MS (SPMS) over time. However, everyone’s MS is different and so the path it follows is also unique. Novartis, together with physicians and patients, developed tools to identify early signs of progression. The tools use information about the symptoms of the patient and their impact on everyday life in the past six months. This information is used to facilitate the discussion between physicians and patients about the likelihood of transition from RRMS to SPMS.
