The risk of reaching multiple sclerosis (MS) disability milestones has dropped significantly in the past decade, researchers from Sweden report.

“As many clinicians have an impression that MS patients have done better in recent years, and since most of us believe that MS disease-modifying treatments (DMTs) have an important effect beyond the brief two years of clinical trials, our findings are maybe [not] surprising,” said Dr Jan Hillert, from Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm.
