Specialist Study Presentation – July 2013
Primary, secondary and tertiary prevention of multiple sclerosis: theory and clinical evidence
In 2012 an Australian research team led by Professor George Jelinek (Founder of Overcoming MS, http://www.overcomingms.org) published research in Neurological Sciences, a major international neurology journal, looking at the health related quality of life outcomes at 1 and 5 years after an intensive MS lifestyle intervention. The evidence presented showed an average of 20% improvement on MS quality of life scores across physical, mental and emotional domains for people with MS following a preventive risk factor modification approach to MS over a 5-year period.
Additionally, Professor Jelinekʼs team has also commenced a major international study of PwMS looking at the various factors in their diets and lifestyles, and their disease activity and disability. This will produce strong evidence about the effect of these factors in MS disease activity and progression. The respondents represent the widest possible range of ages, geographical regions, and with different types of MS. The outcomes of this research will be published in a series of papers during 2013 and Prof. Jelinek will discuss these findings at this seminar.
This presentation will be held on Thursday 4th July 2013 at The Belmont Hotel, De Montfort Street, Leicester, UK.
