Factors impacting quality of life in multiple sclerosis

Takeaway

  • Shorter duration of disease together with lower levels of depression and psychological distress symptoms were associated with greater quality of life (QoL), as was relapsing–remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) compared with progressive MS (PMS).

Why this matters ?

  • Depression and psychological distress are potential treatable targets to increase QoL in MS.
