The proportion of people who had ever smoked was 45.8% among people with MS and 39.4% among controls. Data on the duration or intensity of smoking were not obtained.
People who smoked had a moderately increased risk of developing MS compared with those who did not smoke.
Of the 179 people with relapsing-remitting MS, 20 people (11%) converted to a progressive course during the period of follow-up. The risk of developing secondary-progressive MS was more than three times higher in smokers than in non-smokers.
