Neuroepidemiology with focus on multiple sclerosis

Neuroepidemiology with focus on multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system affecting more than two million people world-wide. MS is the second most common cause of neurological disability in young adults. The disease progression varies between patients but often causes different degrees of disability.

In the MS epidemiology research group, we use data from the Swedish MS registry on its own or linked to data from public databases such as Statistics Sweden, National Board of Health and Welfare and Swedish Social Insurance Agency in order to perform epidemiological studies related to MS. Access to these large data collections allows as to conduct research projects into MS outcomes with the aim of describing how MS patients fare over time as regards disease progression, treatment regimens and socioeconomic outcomes. Our studies will hopefully contribute to increased knowledge of factors influencing MS disease and socioeconomic burden of MS with the ultimate ambition of providing the basis for an improved and cost effective healthcare for MS patients.

Our research group consists of molecular biologists, epidemiologists and neurologists.
