Plant-based diet - A one-year study tested a low-fat, plant-based diet on measures of disease activity, mobility, fatigue, cholesterol, body weight, and compliance in 61 people with relapsing-remitting MS. Half of the participants received 10 days of diet and cooking training, while the control group was wait-listed. An attempt was made to identify all patients presenting with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) during a year period in Lancashire and South Cumbria, England. An analysis of their place of residence was made using the postal code. This was used to allocate each patient to an electoral ward. Using such small areal units, it was found that more cases of ALS had arisen than would .

If you would like us to post a study on these pages, please email [email protected] to find out what information you need to submit for review. Researchers are committed to finding solutions for everyone affected by MS — the very people who hold the key to the answers. Without participants in research studies, MS research would come to a. In , the first treatment for both PPMS and RRMS was approved by the FDA (Ocrelizumab), and studies surrounding the use of adult stem cells as a treatment option for MS are underway with promising results. Additionally, gene therapy techniques, which are in their infancy in relation to MS and its treatment, have showed promising.

So far, cluster studies have not produced clear evidence for the existence of any causative or triggering factor or factors in MS. Clusters are difficult to investigate The problems associated with investigating clusters of any disease, and especially MS, are enormous.

This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to transmit signals, resulting in a range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problems.
