My MS database analysis, Darent Valley Hospital

By Dr Kirstin Weyrich, Darent Valley Hospital, Dartford

Project description

Darent Valley Hospital feeds an MS database for over 15 years. Information such as the MS type patients are diagnosed with or which disease modifying drug they are on are stored on this system. So far this information has though not been analysed nor used. We have therefore analysed these data for the first time and also decided which other baseline data we would like to collect in this first round and in the future not yet stored on this system (EDSS score, Oligoclonal bands status for instance).
