Explorative Study of Emerging Blood Biomarkers in Progressive Multiple Sclerosis

As the duration of the disease increases, the risk of developing progressive MS (PMS) grows. In this progressive phase, immunotherapies often begin to function worse and therapeutic goals need to be readjusted.

The research project aims to explore determinants of participation in work life in MS patients and to identify cluster of potential influencing factors. The knowledge gained will serve to improve the chances of people with MS to participate in work life.
