Quality of life (QoL) is significantly impaired in patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). As the expanded disability status scale (EDSS) inadequately reflects the impact of clinical symptoms on QoL, t...
A large number of multiple sclerosis [MS] patients suffer from cognitive dysfunction affecting their routine life in family and society. Investigating modifiable factors for cognition decline and cont...
Mastery is the sense of being in control of one's life and improvement in mastery may help to enhance quality of life. Little research has explored mastery in people with multiple sclerosis (MS), incl...
The aim of this work was to evaluate the quality of life of patients with multiple sclerosis and its association with depressive symptoms and physical health.
The commonest secondary cause for trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is multiple sclerosis (MS) and little is known about this group of patients in terms of their presentation and treatments. We compared patie...
The main purpose of the study is to assess the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) through the Multiple Sclerosis Quality of Life-54 Questionnaire (MSQoL-54) scale in highly-active rela...
This study was to find out if patients with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis treated with Interferon beta-1a had an improved quality of life after treatment with Interferon beta-1a
The treatment of multiple sclerosis was evolving in light of specific drug therapies to treat the disease, refinements and acceptance of imaging with MRI to diagnose and monitor the diseas...
To evaluate the evolution of the impact on daily life activities over the first 12 months following the introduction of interferon beta-1b treatment in patients presenting RRMS or patients...
This is an observational, non controlled, non-interventional, multicentric, prospective study planned to be conducted in 450 subjects diagnosed with MS and their caregivers in 20 centres o...
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.

The goal of palliative nursing is to prevent and relieve suffering, and to support the best possible quality of life for patients and their families. Hospice nursing is palliative care for people in their final stages of life.
Multiple protein bands serving as markers of specific ANTIBODIES and detected by ELECTROPHORESIS of CEREBROSPINAL FLUID or serum. The bands are most often seen during inflammatory or immune processes and are found in most patients with MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
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.
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.

Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
Multiple Sclerosis MS
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting 100,000 young adults in the UK. The condition results from autoimmune damage to myelin, causing interference in nerve signaling. Symptoms experienced depend on the pa...
