The growing number of disease-modifying medications approved for multiple sclerosis (MS) treatment is a significant step forward and provides new options for our patients. These medications, however, have differing efficacy and risk profiles. Although accurate predictors of efficacy are not available, treatment choices can be guided by patient-specific risk stratification. The use of risk mitigation strategies can help clinicians tailor MS treatment recommendations for individual patients.
