Study results suggest that maintaining proper weight is not just associated with better disease outcomes but also less pain in patients with knee osteoarthritis.
Researchers reported that treatment with isotretinoin is not only associated with significant clinical improvement in patients with moderate to severe acne, but it also did not cause worsening of depression or suicidal thoughts in any of the patients in the study.
Patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) commonly experience tremoring limbs, head pain, and blurred vision, among other symptoms. Fatigue is another commonly reported and has the power to alter a patient’s quality of life (QoL). But by how much?

It’s believed that this is caused by hypothalamic lesions from the disease, however, the specifics are not fully understood. M. Toledano and colleagues from the University of Utah set out to uncover more in a poster session that will be presented at the 31st Congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS 2015) in Barcelona, Spain.
Katarina Fink, an associate in the Department of Clinical Neuroscience at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, and colleagues analyzed the influence that multiple sclerosis (MS) has on a woman’s fertility – an area that has remained unclear. The findings will be described in a poster session at the 31st Congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS 2015) in Barcelona, Spain.
