The first scientific meeting of the International Progressive MS Collaborative (since renamed the Progressive MS Alliance) took place on 6-8 February in Milan, Italy.

More than 170 MS researchers and clinicians from around the world came together at the conference with a common goal of finally bringing treatments to people with progressive MS everywhere.

The conference, organised by the Italian, American, British, Canadian and Dutch MS societies and the MS International Federation, enabled leading experts to discuss and explore the most promising pathways in finding strategies for advancing the understanding of and treatment options for progressive MS.

The next steps of the International Progressive MS Collaborative will be to assemble a more in-depth scientific review of the meeting, agree a common research strategy and further develop the global action plans that will drive efforts toward the solutions needed for progressive MS.
