  • OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of autologous hematopoetic stem cell transplantation (autoHSCT) in the health related quality of life (HRQL) in patients with multiple sclerosis. METHOD The sample consisted of 34 patients, over 18 years old, treated at a University Hospital in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. For data collection MOS SF-36 and EDSS scales were applied at three time points: admission of the patient, hospital discharge and 1 year posttransplantation. RESULTS 27 patients (79… CONTINUE READING
