Among patients of European descent, higher latitude regions are associated with an earlier age at onset of multiple sclerosis (MS), according to data published online ahead of print November 3 in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry. Age at MS onset also is lower among people with less exposure to ultraviolet radiation.
Bruce V. Taylor, MBBS, Professorial Research Fellow at the University of Tasmania, Australia, and his collaborators examined data for 22,162 eligible patients participating in the international MSBase Registry. Eligible participants had MS, were age 16 or older, and came from centers of largely European descent. The investigators defined age at onset as the year of the first symptom suggestive of inflammatory CNS demyelination. They evaluated predictors of age at onset using linear regression.
