      Prevalence and types of multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis (MS) has a worldwide distribution but is five times more common in temperate regions than in tropical regions. The disease primarily occurs in individuals between ages 20 and women are affected by the disease more often than men. Research has shown that environmental factors play a significant role in your susceptibility to MS. For people with the 'right' genetic background – those predisposed to developing MS because of a strong family genetic tendency – certain environmental factors increase the risk of developing MS. Research in multiple sclerosis may find new pathways to interact with the disease, improve function, curtail attacks, or limit the progression of the underlying disease. Many treatments already in clinical trials involve drugs that are used in other diseases or medications that have not been designed specifically for multiple are also trials involving the combination .   Cottrell DA, Kremenchutzky M, Rice GPA, Hader W, Baskerville J, Ebers GC.

The decisive conclusions to be drawn from the geography and prevalence of MS are: (1) a north-south (as well as west-east in the United States) gradient exists independent from genetic/racial factors; (2) major differences in prevalence occur in the Cited by: We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow more.

It begins by introducing the central nervous system and describing how multiple sclerosis affects the brain and spinal cord. The author then reviews early understanding of MS, how it was first recognized as a disease, and the discoveries that have helped explain its causes.

Some researchers suggest that multiple sclerosis is common in temperate regions due to the seasonal fluctuations in daylight affecting body chemistry. Research has shown that both disease onset and relapses are more common in the springtime and least common in.

Multiple sclerosis is the most common neurological cause of debilitation in young people; it affects approximat people in the UK,people in the US and approximately million people worldwide.

The disease commonly manifests in the second or third decade of life, and in most cases it leads to progressive disability, which explains its 5/5(1). There are aboutpatients suffering from Multiple Sclerosis in the North America today.

The age of onset peaks between 20 and 30 years. Almost 70% of patients manifest symptoms between ages 21 and Disease rarely occurs prior to 10 or after 60 years of age.

However, patients as young as 3 and as old as 67 years of age have been described. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is proud to be a source of information about multiple sclerosis and maintains the largest collection of MS information in the world. These books have been approved by a review committee and align with the Society’s organizational values.

The Society does not endorse specific publications. “The association between the post-encephalitic syndrome and demyelination or incomplete myelination of the brain seems quite secure. And the fact that encephalitis -including that caused by vaccination- can cause demyelination has been known since the 's!”.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS). Although the precise mechanisms involved in MS pathology have remained unclear, it is generally thought to be an autoimmune disease that targets myelin in the by: 9.

multiple sclerosis (MS), chronic, slowly progressive autoimmune disease in which the body's immune Further explorations on the geographic distribution of multiple sclerosis book attacks the protective myelin sheaths that surround the nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord (a process called demyelination), resulting in damaged areas that are unable to transmit nerve impulses.

Multiple sclerosis: Geographic distribution and prevalence Experts agree that there is unequal distribution of multiple sclerosis cases around the world. In the United States, estimates are set at. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating disease in which the insulating covers of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged.

This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to transmit signals, resulting in a range of signs and symptoms, including physical, mental, and sometimes psychiatric problems.

Specific symptoms can include double vision, blindness Causes: Unknown.

The average time between clinical onset of MS and diagnosis by physicians is 4 - 5 years. Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis are varied and can occur suddenly, then disappear again just as quickly.

There are no specific sets of symptoms applicable to any of the types of multiple sclerosis. Both mortality and morbidity data indicate quite clearly that multiple sclerosis is a geographically-related disease, and thus MS can be thought of as an acquired environmental (exogenous) illness.

High frequency parts of the world for MS are Europe between 65° and 45° north latitude, northern United States and southern Canada, New Zealand, and southern Cited by: F Global distribution of multiple sclerosis and migrations The five continents are depicted, showing areas of medium prevalence of multiple sclerosis (orange), areas of exceptionally high frequency (red), and areas with low rates (grey-blue).

Determining expected rates of incidence of MS in an area may also be very difficult because prevalence of MS varies by geographical location, age, gender distribution, and ethnic composition.

Since MS occurs more frequently in families with a history of the disease, this must also be taken into consideration when examining a potential cluster. Multiple sclerosis is a devastating disease that induces the body's own immune system to eat away at the central nervous system, slowly.
