Episode 89: Exercise & MS with Dr. Lara Pilutti

Publication date: May 13, 2019

I get a lot of listener questions about exercise and MS. And a lot of those questions come from people living with progressive MS, wondering whether the conversation about physical activity and MS applies to them. My guest this week is Dr. Lara Pilutti, an expert in the role of exercise in the management and treatment of disability arising from multiple sclerosis. We’re talking about how you want to be thinking about exercise and why you want to be thinking about exercise, whether you’re living with relapsing-remitting MS or progressive MS. We’re also talking about this year’s winner of the Dystel Prize for MS Research. We’ll tell you about the long overdue approval of Ocrevus to treat early primary progressive MS in the U.K. You’ll hear about the French research team that has found a connection between ancient retroviruses and MS. And we’ll tell you about legislation introduced in Congress that’s supposed to protect people with pre-existing conditions…but doesn’t! We have a lot to talk about. Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
