Participate in a Clinical Trial
Without the participation of people with MS, it would be impossible to develop new and better therapies and other interventions.
TRPMS to Improve Mobility and Depression in Multiple Sclerosis
This study is aimed to test the efficacy of 10 sessions of Transcranial Rotating Permanent Magnetic Stimulation (TRPMS) paired with aerobic exercise or computerized cognitive training (CT) on mobility and depression symptoms in 40 individuals affected by multiple sclerosis (MS). Participants in Arm 1 will complete 10x40 minutes daily sessions of TRPMS+aerobic exercise. Participants in Arm 2 will complete TRPMS+computerized CT. Primary outcomes for both arms will be assessed at baseline, at treatment end and after 4-week from the treatment end (follow-up).
Turkish Version of F-2-MS
The aims of this study were to perform cultural adaptation of the F-2-MS and provide information regarding the factor structure, reliability and validity of the instrument in Turkish speaking patients with Multiple Sclerosis.
Ultra-high-field Brain MRI in Multiple Sclerosis
The MRI scan is one of the most important tools for diagnosing multiple sclerosis (MS) and for monitoring disease progression and medication effects. Increasingly strong MRI magnets (higher field strength) enable us to see abnormalities in the brain in greater detail. On the other hand, it poses challenges because these higher field strength MRIs are more sensitive to disturbances, for example due to motion, including physiological motion such as breathing and swallowing. In current practice, field strengths of up to 3 Tesla are common. The aim of this study is to compare scanning at field strengths of 3 Tesla in 10 MS patients at two ...
Ultrasound-Guided Percutaneous Neuromodulation in Spasticity
The Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disease characterised by the appearance of lesions, characterised by heterogeneity in their anatomopathological, clinical and radiological presentation. Its aetiology is complex and multifactorial, with genetic and environmental interactions with a predominance in women (3:1) and is the second leading cause of disability in young adults (25-30 years). It has a socio-economic impact, affecting interpersonal relationships and causing a significant reduction in quality of life. MAIN OBJECTIVE To assess the effect on spasticity of the Percutaneous Ultrasound-guided ...
Validity and Reliability of the Modified Four Square Step Test in Multiple Sclerosis Patients
Balance disorder is common in people with MS. As the disease worsens, it is associated with impaired balance, difficulty walking, decreased mobility, and an increased risk of falling. Given the prevalence and clinical significance of balance dysfunction in individuals with MS, the assessment of balance has become an important focus in MS clinical practice and research. The Four Square Step Test is a standard clinical measure used to assess dynamic standing balance. It is a timed test in which the individual is instructed to step rapidly forward, backward, and to the right and left over a low obstacle (a cane). The test assesses the ...
Managed Access Program (MAP) for Patients Diagnosed With Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis With Active Disease
The purpose of this MAP Cohort Treatment Plan is to allow access to siponimod for eligible patients diagnosed with Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis with active disease. The patient's Treating Physician should follow the suggested treatment guidelines and comply with all local health authority regulations. The requesting Treating Physician should submit a request for access to the drug (often referred to as Compassionate Use) to Novartis which will be reviewed and assessed by the medical team experienced with the drug and indication.
