“Prednisone has too many side effects. My MG doesn’t respond to treatment. We need more targeted therapies.”
The medical and pharmaceutical communities have been listening to MG patients. New therapies are being developed. Now, what has to happen to deliver those treatments to patients? Join us on October 27 to learn about the next step: clinical trials. You’ll hear from a physician involved with a trial, and a pharmaceutical representative.
The panel is prepared for a lively Q&A session, so you’ll learn something whether or not you’ll participate in a clinical trial. So bring your concerns about side effects, medications to be avoided by MG patients, and how MG symptoms are evaluated. This is a great opportunity to learn!
Event is free, includes lunch. A donation of $25 per person (or amount of your choice) would help offset costs.
