Summary of "Long-term disease activity and disability progression in relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis patients on natalizumab."

Natalizumab is an effective treatment for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). Data on clinical and imaging measures predictive of disease activity and progression during treatment is limited.

Plasma Neurofilaments correlate with Disability in Progressive Multiple Sclerosis patients.

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and blood neurofilaments (NFL) are markers of axonal damage and are being investigated, mostly in Relapsing-Remitting (RR) MS, as a marker of disease activity and of response...

Patients with High-Disease-Activity Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis in Real-World Clinical Practice: A Population-Based Study in Sweden.

This study aims to compare the disease progression and disease-modifying treatment-switching patterns between patients with high-disease-activity (HDA) relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) an...

Dimethyl Fumarate: A Review in Relapsing-Remitting MS.

Dimethyl fumarate (Tecfidera) is approved for the treatment of relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). Based on evidence from the clinical trial and real-world settings, dimethyl fumarate is an ef...

Switching from fingolimod to alemtuzumab in patients with highly active relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis: Α case series.

The management of "aggressive" and "highly-active" relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis remains problematic. Although a number of highly efficacious agents are currently available, the optimal timin...

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)

A slowly progressive autoimmune demyelinating disease of peripheral nerves and nerve roots. Clinical manifestations include weakness and sensory loss in the extremities and enlargement of peripheral nerves. The course may be relapsing-remitting or demonstrate a step-wise progression. Protein is usually elevated in the spinal fluid and cranial nerves are typically spared. GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME features a relatively rapid progression of disease which distinguishes it from this condition. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1337)

A humanized monoclonal immunoglobulin G4 antibody to human INTEGRIN ALPHA4 that binds to the alpha4 subunit of INTEGRIN ALPHA4BETA1 and integrin alpha4beta7. It is used as an IMMUNOLOGIC FACTOR in the treatment of RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS and CROHN'S DISEASE.

A persistent activity-dependent decrease in synaptic efficacy between NEURONS. It typically occurs following repeated low-frequency afferent stimulation, but it can be induced by other methods. Long-term depression appears to play a role in MEMORY.

A selective, irreversible inhibitor of Type B monoamine oxidase. It is used in newly diagnosed patients with Parkinson's disease. It may slow progression of the clinical disease and delay the requirement for levodopa therapy. It also may be given with levodopa upon onset of disability. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p385) The compound without isomeric designation is Deprenyl.
