Few differences in patient-reported outcomes between multiple sclerosis treatments

Takeaway

  • People with multiple sclerosis (MS) treated with injectable, oral or infusion disease-modifying therapies (DMTs) show few differences in health-related quality of life (HRQoL) outcomes.

Why this matters

  • Although many studies have examined the effect of DMTs on disease activity in people with MS, patient-reported outcomes (PROs) can provide a better understanding of the impact of treatment on peoples’ lives.

  • Longer-term studies are needed to understand the relationship between HRQoL and DMT initiation and transition.
