"I second this" : MS patients report improvements in quality of life, reduced fatigue and improved cognition

Posted Apr 21 2010 12:00am

MS patients report improvements in quality of life, including physical and psychological well-being, as well as reduced fatigue and improved cognitive function after one year of treatment with TYSABRI

In this ongoing one-year longitudinal study, patients with MS were asked to assess their outcomes using validated patient-reported outcome measures prior to treatment initiation and after the third, sixth and 12th infusions with TYSABRI. The posters presented at AAN show that patients reported significant improvements in quality of life, including physical and psychological well-being, as well as reduced fatigue and improved cognitive function after one year of treatment with TYSABRI.

One of the posters on this study, Effect of Natalizumab on Disease-Specific Quality of Life after One Year of Natalizumab Treatment (P02.164), will be available for viewing on April 13 from 3 - 7:30 p.m. EDT. Another titled Improvement in Health-Related Quality of Life in Multiple Sclerosis Patients Receiving Natalizumab in the United States (P02.166) will be available for viewing on April 13 from 3 - 7:30 p.m. EDT. A third titled Improvement in Patient-Reported Fatigue and Cognitive Function over Time with Natalizumab Treatment (P06.167) will be available for viewing on April 15 from 3 - 7:30 p.m. EDT.
