    This revised, updated second edition draws together the basic science, pathology, epidemiology and treatment possibilities in progressive multiple sclerosis. Each chapter addresses specific aspects of progressive multiple sclerosis providing an extensive review of the current literature and a discussion of the likely mechanisms of tissue injury. Written for students interested in learning about multiple sclerosis, this book describes how this frequently disabling disease affects patients, exploring its effects on minds, bodies, and daily lives. Written by a professor of medicine who is also personally affected by the disease, Multiple Sclerosis offers an overview of every aspect of the condition.

    The state-of-the-art 4th Edition presents the most recent information on the genetics and epidemiology, clinical neurology, pathogenesis, and management of this common neurological disease. Amply illustrated and referenced and beautifully written, McAlpine's Multiple Sclerosis has been described as "A standard reference for multiple sclerosis Cited by: Multiple Sclerosis: a complex disease requiring sophisticated management Multiple Sclerosis poses labyrinthine challenges. There is no blood test to rely on for diagnosis; clinical acumen is essential. Yet an effective diagnosis only takes you part of the way: treatment offers further enigmas.

    Multiple sclerosis (MS), the most common of the demyelinating diseases, is characterized by many scattered discrete areas of demyelination. These plaques are the pathologic hallmark of this disease appearing in the white matter areas of the central nervous system (CNS).

This excellent small monograph published by the World Health Organization provides a comprehensive review of the epidemiology of multiple sclerosis.

The book covers conventional aetiological epidemiology such as prevalence, incidence, secular trends, and environmental risk factors, as well as clinical epidemiology, with sections on diagnostic Author: Yoav Ben-Shlomo.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. 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.

Specific symptoms can include double vision, blindness in one Causes: Unknown. Studies into the prevalence of MS in Switzerland by Bing and collaborators (Bing and Reese ) rank among the pioneering works in epidemiology.

Since then, two main types of epidemiological method have been used in the study of MS. As the only book that approaches the epidemiology of MS with this focus, this epidemiology of multiple sclerosis book bibliography will be a tool of inestimable value to researchers in the fields of medical sociology, epidemiology, social epidemiology, public health, environmental health, and medical : George W.

Lowis. Douglas S. Goodin, in Handbook of Clinical Neurology, Abstract. The purpose of studying the epidemiology of multiple sclerosis (MS) is twofold. First, it is important to understand clearly the natural history of the illness in order to assist patients in making decisions about their future with respect to issues such as family planning, the importance of securing lifelong healthcare.

This resource covers both the basic research aspects of MS -- epidemiology, neuropathology, genetics, and immunology -- as well as the treatment options associated with the MS patient, including sleep, steroids, pharma, neuropsychology, and growth factors.

It focuses on the medical treatment - drug treatment - of MS rather than on physical medicine and rehabilitation, and includes flow Author: Moses Rodriguez. Luciana Parente Costa Seguro, Sandra Gofinet Pasoto, in Infection and Autoimmunity (Second Edition), Multiple Sclerosis.

The etiology of multiple sclerosis, an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system, is still unknown, but some risk factors have been implicated in its pathogenesis, including an association of genetic susceptibility and environmental agents.

Multiple Sclerosis: A Mechanistic View. provides a unique view of the pathophysiology of multiple sclerosis (MS) and related disorders. As the only book on the market to focus on the mechanisms of MS rather than focusing on the clinical features and treatment of the disease, it describes the role of genetic and environmental factors in the pathogenesis of MS, the role of specific cells in the.

The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is proud to be a source of information about multiple sclerosis and maintains the largest collection of MS information in the world.

These books have been approved by a review committee and align with the Society’s organizational values. The Society does not endorse specific publications. MS is a complex disease with both environmental and genetic risk factors implicated in its etiology.

Furthermore, the complex interaction between the environment and genetic risk factors is also responsible for the pathological and clinical heterogeneity in the disease course. The most important risk factor for MS is being a woman, which is reflected in the increasing incidence of MS in : Moses Rodriguez.

Moving to contemporary understanding of multiple sclerosis, the book explores the epidemiology of MS in the United States and around the world, describes MS symptoms, and reviews today's treatments and research directions.

The most common immune-mediated inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system is multiple sclerosis (MS). The clinical manifestations of MS will be reviewed here. Other aspects of MS are discussed separately: (See "Pathogenesis and epidemiology of multiple sclerosis".).

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic autoimmune, inflammatory neurological disease of the central nervous system (CNS). 1, 2 MS attacks the myelinated axons in the CNS, destroying the myelin and the axons to varying degrees.
