Summary null null Bateman et al. ( Bateman et al., 2021 ) shows that multiple sclerosis (MS) is strongly associated with raised pressure in the superior sagittal sinus (SSS) and increased jugular bulb height above the sigmoid sinus. These findings are consistent with an increased aqueductal CSF pulse, as previously described in MS. They reinforce the hypothesis that intracranial compliance is reduced in MS and that internal jugular vein abnormalities contribute to SSS hypertension. However, the ...

Abstract null null Background null : brainstem monoaminergic (dopaminergic, noradrenergic, and serotoninergic) nuclei (BrMn) contain a variety of ascending neurons that diffusely project to the whole brain, crucially regulating normal brain function. BrMn are directly affected in multiple sclerosis (MS) by inflammation and neurodegeneration. Moreover, inflammation reduces the synthesis of monoamines. Aberrant monoaminergic neurotransmission contributes to the pathogenesis of MS and explains some...

Abstract null null Background null In March 2020, the United Kingdom Multiple Sclerosis Register (UKMSR) established an electronic case return form, designed collaboratively by MS neurologists, to record data about COVID-19 infections in people with MS (pwMS). null null null Objectives null Examine how hospital admission and mortality are affected by disability, age and disease modifying treatments (DMTs) in people with Multiple Sclerosis with COVID-19. null null null Methods null Anonymised dat...

ABSTRACT null null Background null : Obesity is linked to increased risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) and worsening disease severity. Recent experimental and clinical data indicates that adipokines are involved in regulating immune response and serve as cross talk between immune and neural system. Dimethyl fumarate (DMF) is an oral MS medication with unknown mechanism of action. It upregulates the nuclear factor E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) pathway, a pathway for adipocyte differentiation. To determ...
Abstract null null Objective null To estimate the efficacy of the commonly used long-term immunotherapies in myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein IgG associated disorder (MOGAD) null null null Method null A comprehensive search of the databases including PubMed/MEDLINE, EMBASE, and Cochrane database was performed for all studies that assessed the efficacy of azathioprine (AZA), mycophenolate mofetil (MMF), rituximab (RTX), and maintenance intravenous immunoglobulin (mIVIG) in MOGAD. The random-ef...

BACKGROUND Restless legs syndrome/Willis-Ekbom disease (RLS/WED) was shown to have a high prevalence among adults with multiple sclerosis (MS). OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate the prevalence of RLS/WED and to define the disease characteristics in young patients with pediatric onset multiple sclerosis (POMS) METHOD: 50 patients with POMS were questioned for the presence of RLS/WED. The demographic, clinical and laboratory data were compared between POMS patients with and without RLS/WED, includ...

Abstract null null Objective: To determine the longitudinal changes in retinal microstructure, microvasculature, microcirculation, and axonal and neuronal functions in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) over the time course of about two years. null Methods: A total of 30 patients (60 eyes) with RRMS were followed for a period of 27 ± 6 months and evaluated with a battery of clinical tests including low contrast letter acuity (LCLA), intraretinal layer thicknesses by opti...
BACKGROUND Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious-contagious disease caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. This disease can act acutely or in latent form as granuloma. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease more common in the Central Nervous System (CNS). Its treatment involves disease-modifying therapies (DMTs), which can predispose MS patients to a higher risk of infections by interfering in the immune system. Patients undergoing MS treatment could be more susceptible to Latent ...

Abstract null null Background: Evidence supports that cannabinoids reduce self-reported spasticity and neuropathic pain in people with MS (PwMS), and legal access to cannabis for medical and recreational use continues to rise. However, there are limited data regarding patterns of cannabis use and perceived benefits of cannabis among PwMS in the US. This study describes the prevalence of cannabis use, routes of administration, perceived benefit of cannabis for MS, and characteristics associated w...
