Searching for better therapies
At Boston Children’s Hospital, important research on improving treatment approaches to multiple sclerosis (MS) is currently taking place.
The Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis and Related Disorders Program at Boston Children’s Hospital is affiliated with a nationwide Network of Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis Centers (NPMSC). The NPMSC has been established by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to conduct multi-institutional research.
The NPMSC has established the Pediatric Multiple Sclerosis and other Demyelinating Diseases Database (PeMSDD). This database stores information collected by pediatric MS centers in order to help investigators better understand the variability, progression, and current treatment practices for demyelinating diseases in children. The ultimate goal of this research study is to better guide assesses therapeutic interventions as well as provide recommendations on pediatric multiple sclerosis patient care. The PeMSDD will also provide pilot and descriptive data necessary for hypothesis generation and study design (i.e. preliminary power analyses, recruitment projections) for future studies.
