Locomotor training is a new exercise modality that emphasizes task specificity to promote learning and neural plasticity. It ihas been reported to improve walking in patients with stroke, ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effects and tolerability of exercise on side effects of injectable disease modifying treatments in multiple sclerosis. The investigators mai...
It is stated that the affected cognitive functions in Multiple Sclerosis are learning, memory, attention, speed of information processing, visuospatial skills, and executive functions. The...
This study seeks to investigate whether early exercise efforts can expand the use of exercise in Multiple sclerosis (MS), from symptom treatment only, to early supplementary disease-modify...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether treadmill training is safe and beneficial in patients with walking difficulty because of multiple sclerosis.
Exercise-training is a beneficial approach for improving function in persons with multiple sclerosis(MS). However, it is unlikely that every participant who engages in an exercise-training interventio...
Aerobic exercise training may improve cognitive performance among persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). This is largely based on evidence that cardiorespiratory fitness (as a cross-sectional surrogate...
Exercise training has been shown to be beneficial for persons with multiple sclerosis (MS). Adapted exercise modalities are needed to accommodate those with severe mobility impairment (Expanded Disabi...
This randomised controlled trial (RCT) examines treadmill walking exercise training effects on learning and memory performance, hippocampal volume, and hippocampal resting-state functional connectivit...
Exercise training is a promising approach for managing multiple sclerosis (MS), but existing research has not focused on black individuals with MS. This is important as black individuals with MS may e...
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 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. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)
A cardiovascular exercise strategy with alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less-intense recovery periods.
A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
