Clinical Impact of Multiple Sclerosis (CIMS) Study


This is a long-term study to determine factors that are associated with outcomes in MS.

We expect this study to help us better predict the impact of MS on different groups of people, to better understand factors that influence disease outcomes, help determine the best methods of care delivery, and determine when and how to start treatment. Finally, we hope it will improve our understanding of some of the biological processes important in MS. In these ways, this study may contribute to the development of new and better therapies for MS.
