Описание: This book comprehensively reviews the current state of clinical trial methods in multiple sclerosis treatment, providing investigators, sponsors and specialists with current knowledge of outcome measures and study designs for disease and symptom management. The status of the rapidly evolving field of disease-modifying drugs is presented, with emphasis on the most promising therapies currently being tested. Experts discuss disease and symptom management for MS subtypes, including neuromyelitis optica and pediatric MS. In addition, key scientific advances in MS pathology, genetics, immunology and epidemiology are presented. The fourth edition has been extensively revised, featuring more than 50% new material. All chapters have been substantially updated to provide current information on rapidly evolving topics and this volume contains 15 new chapters, reflecting the growth of the field in recent years. This book is an essential reference for practitioners caring for MS patients, investigators planning or conducting clinical trials, and clinical trial sponsors.
Описание: A synthesis of current concepts about the evaluation, treatment, and future directions in MS. On the evaluation side, the authors review the use of MRI, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, functional MRI, and three-dimensional MRI, and consider the rapidly developing body of pathologic information they have yielded. On the treatment side, the focus is on recently approved medications (Novantrone), new indications for medications (CHAMPS Trial), medications in development (Oral Interferon Tau, Oral Copaxone, and Oral Cellcept), immunosuppressive therapy for both progressive disease and symptomatic therapy; the current medications for treating relapsing-remitting MS (Avonex, Betaseron, and Copaxone) are also discussed. For future directions, the authors present the current best thinking, as well as the latest discoveries in immunology relating to MS, including groundbreaking B-cell research and its applications to specific immunotherapies, and the use of immune markers for tracking the disease.
Описание: This reference presents cutting-edge basic and clinical research on all forms of interferon (IFN) involvement in the management of multiple sclerosis (MS)-detailing topics from IFN-receptor molecular interactions to synergy and interference with other agents such as cytotoxic drugs and chemotherapy. Features detailed research findings on IFN ? -1a (Avonex) and IFN -1b (Betaseron).

Описание: "MS is always in the back of your mind. If there is something you want to do, you always wonder if the MS will allow you do to it."—Darlene, living with MS for 22 years Living with multiple sclerosis (MS) is challenging and multidimensional. MS pervades all aspects of life: one’s body becomes unpredictable and unreliable, one’s identity and sense of self are tested, and relationships with others often change. MS symptoms emerge and remit; limitations evolve and progress. MS rehabilitation is an active, person-centered, and goal-oriented process embedded within a respectful and collaborative partnership between the person with MS and the members of his or her rehabilitation treatment team. Using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) as a guiding framework, Multiple Sclerosis Rehabilitation: From Impairment to Participation provides a comprehensive and evidence-based resource to inform and guide clinical reasoning and decision making during each phase of the MS rehabilitation process, from initial referral to post-discharge follow-up. With an emphasis on the application of evidence throughout the entire MS rehabilitation process, the specific objectives of the book are to increase the understanding of: The nature and impact of specific impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions experienced by people with MS How to select and use valid, reliable, and relevant assessment tools to inform the development of rehabilitation goals and intervention plans, and to evaluate outcomes This book provides information about the nature and impact of MS on the daily lives of people living with the disease, describes evidence-based assessment processes and instruments, and summarizes current knowledge that can inform goal setting and intervention planning. Thoughtful application of the knowledge contained in this book will inform and guide rehabilitation providers to work collaboratively with people with MS and enable them to achieve their goals for participation in everyday life.

Описание: This handbook is a concise, practical, and easily accessible guide to the evaluation and management of patients with multiple sclerosis. Coverage begins with clearly written reviews of the classification of human demyelinating diseases and the epidemiology, pathologand pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis. The authors then explain the clinical symptoms and signs that occur during the course of the disease, present guidelines for diagnostic workup and treatment, and offer specific recommendations for managing the physical and psychosocial aspects of multiple sclerosis
Описание: This monograph is an up-to-date report of the most recent advances in the research on primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS) - a variant of MS - and of the considerable progress made in understanding it. The reviews, written by leading scientists in this field, clearly demonstrate that the advances in understanding the natural history, pathophysiology, pathogenesis and pathology of PPMS are being extended by ongoing studies of the MS plaque and normal appearing white matter using magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopic techniques. This confluence of thought provides insight into possible disease mechanisms.
Описание: This volume includes the latest developments, both in research and the clinic.

Описание: For everyone in the MS community, the only source for reliable, evidence-based information on the relevance, safety, and effectiveness of various alternative and lifestyle medicine approaches to MS treatment and the best ways to safely integrate them with conventional medicine.In addition to conventional medicine, many people with MS also use some form of alternative medicine and there is growing evidence and interest in the effects of lifestyle factors, such as diet and exercise, on MS. Yet, until now, it has been difficult to obtain unbiased and practical information about the MS-relevant aspects of these non-medication approaches. Written by a renowned specialist in MS and alternative medicine, Optimal Health with Multiple Sclerosis provides the accurate and unbiased information people with MS, their friends and family, health care professionals, and educators need to make responsible decisions and achieve the very best outcome.Find other options that may provide symptomatic relief when conventional therapies are limitedLearn about potentially dangerous interactions between alternative therapies and medical treatments used in the management of MSIdentify alternative and lifestyle therapies that are effective, low risk, and inexpensiveRecognize ineffective, dangerous, or costly alternative therapies
