Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS): The Road Ahead

Dr. Mark S. Freedman — Length: 21:57

The transition from relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) involves changes in management and therapeutic goals. This program describes the evolving pathology of multiple sclerosis over the course of this transition, its impact on disease manifestations, and the current and emerging therapies. Although many aspects of SPMS remain incompletely understood, the progress in characterizing this form of multiple sclerosis is leading to new strategies for better control.

Inhaled Corticosteroids (ICS) and COPD: Myths vs Reality

Dr. Ronald Grossman — Length: 41:34

In the 1980s, inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) were adopted for use in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on the basis of their effectiveness in asthma, rather than on scientific evidence. In fact, evidence supporting their use in COPD is equivocal and their positioning in guidelines controversial. Despite this, evidence shows that ICS are being over-prescribed when they are not recommended. This program will review treatment objectives, the evidence and myths surrounding the use of ICS in COPD, better define which patients may benefit from ICS-containing therapy, and refocus on individualized treatment regimens.

Benefits of Anti-VEGF Therapy for Patients with nAMD: RIVAL Full Study Analysis

Dr. Michael Kapusta — Length: 21:29

RIVAL is the first head-to-head clinical trial to directly compare two of the most commonly used anti-vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) agents in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD) using an identical treat-and-extend regimen. This program will review the primary and secondary endpoints of RIVAL, the results and other key features of the study.

Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria: Diagnosis and Treatment in Primary Care

Dr Werner J Barnard — Length: 08:02

This eXtract video features key information on the practical implementation of the recommended treatment algorithm for Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria (CSU), also known as chronic idiopathic urticaria. CSU is not a life-threatening condition but can impose meaningful reduction in quality of life even when present in mild to moderate severity.

New Recommendations Reconfirm Bronchodilators as Cornerstone of COPD Treatment

Dr. Charles K.N. Chan — Length: 26:33

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a disease that is typically progressive, and not fully reversible, with chronic and continuous respiratory symptoms. The GOLD guidelines recommend LAMAs, LABAs and their combination as the cornerstone of therapy for GOLD B, C and D patients. Many LABA/LAMA combinations have been studied in COPD; however, not all of them have demonstrated the same benefits. This program will review the recommendations for dual therapy and the evidence supporting these recommendations.
