WORDS 4 MS - Tell it Your Way

The Words 4 MS program was created to empower and inspire people in the multiple sclerosis (MS) community by encouraging them to share their story. The program will share individual stories from people living with MS, or people who know someone impacted by MS, through selected videos on mslifelines.com. 

Video submissions (max 10-seconds) should follow the theme of Words 4 MS and include four words to describe a personal achievement (examples: "Still Full of Hope," "My Mom, My Hero") and follow the submission criteria.

An Epidemiological View of Multiple Sclerosis as Annual MS Cases Rise

Research and Markets: An Epidemiological View of Multiple Sclerosis as Annual MS Cases in the 7 Major Markets to Increase by 1.5%


DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/76bd12/epidemiology_mult) has announced the addition of the "Epidemiology: Multiple Sclerosis" report to their offering.
The prevalence of multiple sclerosis (MS) has increased over the last half century in many countries. The current prevalence of MS in the seven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK) is estimated at approximately 80 diagnosed cases per 100,000 people. The increase in MS is likely the result of improved survival and earlier detection, among other factors.
Features and Benefits:
  • Gain insight to market potential, including a robust 10-year epidemiology forecast of multiple sclerosis prevalent cases.
  • Understand the key epidemiologic risk factors associated with multiple sclerosis.
Highlights:
  • During 2010, Datamonitor estimates that 575,900 prevalent cases of multiple sclerosis (MS) existed in the seven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK). Between 2010 and 2020, this report forecasts annual MS prevalent cases in the seven major markets to increase by 1.5%, resulting in 584,500 prevalent cases in 2020.
  • In the five major EU markets (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK), 315,600 prevalent MS cases existed in 2010. This constitutes 55% of all prevalent cases estimated for the seven major markets. Between 2010 and 2020, the number of ASD cases will decrease by 2.0% to 309,200.
  • During 2010 in the seven major markets, the majority (63%) of MS prevalent cases were of the relapse/remitting form. In absolute terms, 363,300 prevalent MS cases were relapse/remitting MS and 212,600 cases were all other MS subtypes in the seven major markets.
Your Key Questions Answered:
  • What are the most robust sources for multiple sclerosis prevalence data?
  • How will the patient population change over the next decade in the US, Japan, and five major EU markets (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK)?
  • What are the major influencing factors for multiple sclerosis that drive the trend in prevalent cases and how are they changing?
