In this week's podcast, we're talking to Dr. Lilyana Amezcua, the lead investigator in a new research study that looks at how genetics and culture can impact the severity of MS among Hispanic-Americans.

We'll also talk about how -- without much fanfare -- the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the RAISE Family Caregivers Act last week.

We'll look at a new $10.6 million dollar study that's getting underway at the University of Nottingham, Nottingham University Hospitals in England, and a team from the Cleveland Clinic.

We'll find out what happened when investigators at the University of Munster in Germany looked at 47 published MS research studies and drew some conclusions about differences in cognitive impairment in people with relapsing-remitting MS and people with progressive MS.

Have researchers found a way to stop progression and even reverse progression in progressive MS? We'll talk about the encouraging initial results of a small study that's being expanded into a much larger study.

There's a lot to talk about this week on RealTalk MS!
