Research into the inner workings of multiple sclerosis comes in all shapes and sizes including looking at specific parts of the brain. A recent study has looked at the role of the blood brain barrier and how it affects patients with this condition.
Country music artist, Clay Walker – who is well-known for his hit songs “She Won’t Be Lonely Long” and “Live Until I Die" – was diagnosed with a relapsing form of multiple sclerosis (MS) at the age of 26.
Study results show that women with atrial fibrillation are less likely to receive recommended thromboprophylaxis medications than men, and patients age 85 and older are often treated with aspirin as the sole antithrombotic agent.
Even as the number of medications approved to treat relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis continues to grow patients with progressive forms of the condition still await the first approved treatment option to help manage their symptoms.
