EUReMS launches landmark studies

The European Register for Multiple Sclerosis (EUReMS) is set for the February launch of four studies that, for the first time, reunite MS data being shared by various specialised registries from across Europe.

The studies are prompted by questions and hypotheses raised by MS specialists. The results of the studies will be announced this summer, marking the conclusion of the first stage of EUReMS, 2011-2014.

EUReMS reached an important milestone: the identification of existing data providers

The results of the study on the existing MS registries - conducted in the framework of the EUReMS project - were presented by Peter Flachenecker, Karoline Buckow and Maura Pugliatti for the EUReMS consortium during the ECTRIMS Congress, on Thursday 3rd October 2013.

See a summary of their findings in the attached "poster".

The European Register in Multiple Sclerosis (EUReMS) project has therefore identified the existing MS registries and gathered detailed knowledge of their content and structure. This was an essential process on the road to establishing a platform to exchange and compare data on multiple sclerosis in Europe, the main objective of EUReMS.
