The MSA Coalition is excited to share that after nearly a decade of hard work, the Movement Disorder Society (MDS) Task Force on MSA Criteria Revision has reached an important milestone with its publication of the new Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) diagnostic criteria on April 21, 2022.

Last revised in 2008, the second consensus criteria for the diagnosis of MSA are widely recognized as the reference standard for clinical research but lack sensitivity to diagnose the disease at early stages.

The MDS Taskforce was chaired by Dr. Gregor Wenning (Left), MSA Coalition Board Member, and Dr. Horacio Kaufmann (Right) along with over a dozen other team members and consultants from around the world.

We are proud to share that an unrestricted MSA Coalition grant has allowed for open access of this publication as we believe our community members should have full access to the latest information about this disease.
