Report against division of MS in clinical types

It is interesting that this is finally getting contested, because it was introduced artificially by the pharma industry to get interferons approved.

Progressive Forms of Multiple Sclerosis: Distinct Entity or Age-Dependent Phenomena.


In multiple sclerosis (MS), disease course is defined by a subclinical or clinical relapsing remitting phase, a progressive phase, and the overlapping phase in-between. Each phase can have intermittently active or inactive periods.

Subclinical activity in radiologically isolated syndrome evolving to primary-progressive MS is mostly indistinguishable from relapsing-remitting MS evolving to secondary-progressive MS.

The onset of progressive-phase MS is age-dependent but time and pre-progressive phase agnostic.

Pathologic hallmarks of progressive MS onset also appear to be age-dependent but pre-progressive phase agnostic. Onset of progressive MS is characterized by a peak in smoldering plaques.
