Summary of "Smoking is associated with increased disease activity during natalizumab treatment in multiple sclerosis."

Smoking has been associated with increased multiple sclerosis (MS) risk, disease worsening, and progression in MS patients. Furthermore, interactions between smoking and human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes have been shown for MS risk. Recently, we found that smoking was associated with an increased relapse rate in interferon-beta-treated relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) patients.
