Closer and Closer to Understanding MS

At the ACTRIMS/ECTRIMS conference, a definitive answer was heard to one of the lingering questions about MS: is it really an autoimmune disease? Andrew Wilner, MD, offers insights from the floor.

Multiple sclerosis

At the ACTRIMS/ECTRIMS conference, one has the impression that the science of multiple sclerosis is moving forward at an unprecedented rapid rate. Live from the floor . . .

Hospitalization rates have declined dramatically in the MS population but remain higher than in the general population. That may be because of the availability of MS disease-modifying treatments.

Information on causes of death for patients with MS is limited, but these researchers came up with some of the underlying causes.

MRI technique helps demonstrate the amount of damage in the gray matter of the brain is related to the severity of MS disability.

A significant percentage of patients with MS in the sample screened positive for 1 or more sleep disorders. Most were undiagnosed.

This study identified that suicidal thoughts are common and several potentially modifiable factors may be useful for prevention.

This study found a positive relationship between physical disability and anxiety and depression, pointing to a need for routine evaluation.
