141. New Research on Primary Progressive MS w/ Dr. Bob Axtell

Season #1

On todays episode, Dr. Bob talks to us about his research (their newest findings discovered a potential treatment for primary-progressive MS)., what it means for people with Primary progressive MS, and things you can do NOW to set yourself up for even more benefit when future therapies arrive. 

Bob Axtell is an Associate Member of the Arthritis & Clinical Immunology Research Program at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation

My bachelor's and master's degrees are from Idaho State University, and my Ph.D. is from the University of Alabama-Birmingham. I conducted postdoctoral research at Stanford University for six years before opening my own lab at OMRF in 2013. 

In my lab, we use animal models and patient samples from OMRF’s MS Center of Excellence to understand why MS behaves differently from other autoimmune diseases and why some MS patients do not respond well to standard therapy. By studying human disease specimens and animal models, we have great potential to identify new therapeutic targets and develop prognostic tests that will bring clinical care of multiple sclerosis into the forefront of personalized medicine.
