MRI Lesions for MS Debate: Why the Answer is 'No'
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be used to identify lesions in the central nervous system in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), but not all patients with active disease have identifiable lesions, and researchers are mixed over the extent to which lesions can be used as a marker for MS disease activity.
Delayed-release dimethyl fumarate (DMF, also known as gastro-resistant DMF) is effective at lowering disease activity long-term in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), according to Eva Havrdova, MD, of Charles University of Prague. The findings are set to be presented in a poster session at the 31st Congress of the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS 2015) in Barcelona, Spain.
When it comes to treating and studying multiple sclerosis, the correlation between magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) lesions and actual disease activity has been widely disputed. A new analysis says that using MRI lesions as a proxy for disease activity is a sufficient approach when determining primary endpoints in clinical trials.
The results from an on-going phase 4 trial add to the growing evidence that teriflunomide is effective for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, according to Patricia K. Coyle, MD, of Stony Brook University in New York.
The risk of developing migraine is increased for those who have low back pain, a low level of education, a heavy physical workload, or participate in heavy recreational activities, but is decreased for those who drink alcohol frequently.
Better understanding the relationship between inflammation and biomarkers could help improve treatments for those with multiple sclerosis.
Clinicians often discourage older patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy from pursuing surgery, worrying that lingering pathology, comorbidities, reduced physiological reserves, and age-related spinal cord changes will delay recovery.
