Asst. Prof. Helen Tremlett, UBC Division of Neurology, School of Population and Public Health, and VCHRI Brain Research Centre, published a paper in the Nov. 4 issue of Neurology (the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology).
Tremlett’s paper examines how MS relapses affect people during different time periods of the disease. She found that people with MS who have relapses within the first five years of onset appear to have more severe disability in the short term compared to people who do not have an early relapse.
