What does the pathology of progressive MS tell us about its pathogenesis?

The primary objective of this roadshow is to define what we mean when we say progressive MS from a clinical and pathological perspective. Is progressive MS different to relapsing MS? Other issues that will be addressed are lifestyle factors and comorbidities and the holistic management of progressive MS.
