Summary of "Clinical follow-up of 411 relapsing and progressive patients with multiple sclerosis 10 years after discontinuing mitoxantrone treatment: a real-life cohort study."

Mitoxantrone has been used to treat patients with aggressive multiple sclerosis (MS) for decades. We aimed to describe the effectiveness and adverse events over 10 years post-mitoxantrone in relapsing and progressive MS patients from an exhaustive real-life database.

Progressive multiple sclerosis patients have a higher burden of autonomic dysfunction compared to relapsing remitting phenotype.

To determine autonomic dysfunction (AD) differences in patients with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (pwRRMS) and progressive MS (pwPMS).

Increased constitutive activation of NF-κB p65 (RelA) in peripheral blood cells of patients with progressive multiple sclerosis.

The NF-κB signalling pathway plays an important role in controlling cellular immune responses, inflammation and apoptosis. In multiple sclerosis (MS), there is evidence of dysregulation of NF-κB sig...

Disease-Modifying Treatment in Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an immune-mediated disorder that affects the central nervous system (CNS), often first affecting people in early adulthood. Although most MS patients have a relapsing-remitt...

Genome sequencing uncovers phenocopies in primary progressive multiple sclerosis.

Primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) causes accumulation of neurologic disability from disease onset without clinical attacks typical of relapsing multiple sclerosis (RMS). However, whether g...

Recommended outcome measures for inpatient rehabilitation of multiple sclerosis are not appropriate for the patients with substantially impaired mobility.

In multiple sclerosis (MS) rehabilitation, most currently used outcome measures were validated in patients with a relapsing remitting MS and mild to moderate impairments. We aimed to assess whether th...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A form of multiple sclerosis characterized by a progressive deterioration in neurologic function which is in contrast to the more typical relapsing remitting form. If the clinical course is free of distinct remissions, it is referred to as primary progressive multiple sclerosis. When the progressive decline is punctuated by acute exacerbations, it is referred to as progressive relapsing multiple sclerosis. The term secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is used when relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis evolves into the chronic progressive form. (From Ann Neurol 1994;36 Suppl:S73-S79; Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)

An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)

A non-glycosylated form of interferon beta-1 that has a serine at position 17. It is used in the treatment of both RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

The most common clinical variant of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, characterized by recurrent acute exacerbations of neurologic dysfunction followed by partial or complete recovery. Common clinical manifestations include loss of visual (see OPTIC NEURITIS), motor, sensory, or bladder function. Acute episodes of demyelination may occur at any site in the central nervous system, and commonly involve the optic nerves, spinal cord, brain stem, and cerebellum. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp903-914)

A random polymer of L-ALANINE, L-GLUTAMIC ACID, L-LYSINE, and L-TYROSINE that structurally resembles MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN. It is used in the treatment of RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
