There are few studies reporting multiple sclerosis prevalence rates in the Buenos Aires region, Argentina (latitude 34 degrees S) (between 12-18.5/100 000 inhabitants), and no studies have been performed in the larger region between parallels 36 degrees and 55 degrees S. The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence rates and clinical features of(More)
Switching treatment may be beneficial in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) who respond inadequately to first-line immunomodulatory therapy. The objective of this study was to evaluate clinical outcomes after switching treatment in such patients. This prospective longitudinal observational study included 114 patients with RRMS who(More)
