As coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) has become a worldwide issue, being declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization, it affects many aspects of healthcare. Specifically, many patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) take medications that alter or suppress their immune system. Rightly, they and their treatment team are concerned about the safest, but also most effective treatment strategy that considers both MS and the risk of COVID-19.

This balance is not simple. Those with comorbidities such as poor mobility and poor lung function are at increased risk of worse COVID-19 outcomes. The impact of immunosuppression is not clearly understood. MS itself is surprisingly common, with up to one million adults in the US diagnosed with this condition. Many of these patients take disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) to treat their MS and mitigate disease progression and prevent symptoms such as muscle weakness, poor coordination, impaired vision, etc. For many years, the treatment paradigm has been to “treat early and never stop,” but in the light of these recent world changes, this paradigm is much less clear.

Physicians caring for patients with MS during this period of COVID-19 risk require educational programs to stay informed of the proper use of DMTs and relevant guidelines to best treat their patients and reduce breakthroughs, while still mitigating the risk of COVID-19.
