This study is observational, non-controlled, multicentric and prospective, without experimental intervention or control. As part of the usual management of the subjects, scales will be used for the assessment of the spasticity and the quality of life (QoL).
The purpose of this observational study is to assess the incidence of spasticity in a group of subjects with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) in Argentina and the way it affects the QoL of these subjects.
One of most frequently observed symptoms in subjects with MS is spasticity. Spasticity is defined as an abnormal velocity-dependent increase in muscle tonic stretch reflexes due to an amplified reactivity of motor segments to sensory input. It is part of one of the components of the superior motoneurone syndrome and it may cause muscle rigidity and disability.
The spasticity, which could be measured in electrophysiological, biomechanical and clinical terms, has a significant prevalence. It is a frequent cause for consultation among subjects with MS and, consequently, has a significant impact on the QoL. Men and those subjects with MS of longer duration are the most affected by spasticity.
The aim of this study is to assess the impact that spasticity has on the QoL of subjects with MS.
The total duration of the study is 24 months. The recruiting period will be 12 months. Once the recruiting time is over, the collection of data will continue during the full 24 months period that was planned.

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.

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.
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.
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)
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.
