New guidelines for pregnancy care in multiple sclerosis, drawn up by a panel of UK experts, have been published this week. They aim to reduce uncertainty about treatments that are safe and appropriate for pregnant and breastfeeding women with MS, and for couples affected by MS who are planning a pregnancy. MS is usually diagnosed among year olds, two thirds of whom are women.

Pregnancy seems to be associated with clinical MS stability or improvement, while the postpartum period seems to be one of high risk for clinical flares of the disease symptoms. Similarly, pregnancy protects animals from developing experimental allergic encephalomyelitis. Immune system changes in pregnancy and MS are reviewed, as they may be involved in the observed clinical effects of pregnancy on MS. Important questions of the patient with MS in the childbearing age group are addressed. Birk K, Rudick R. Pregnancy and Multiple Sclerosis.

Typical clinical presentations of the disease are extensive and variable, with symptoms that include dysregulated mood, fatigue, vision problems, weakness, tremor, imbalance, abnormal sensations, bladder dysfunction, and heat sensitivity. If a woman aged 15—50 years experiences these neurologic symptoms in isolation or combination, and the symptoms are not explained by other underlying medical conditions, MS should be suspected. Multiple sclerosis can be divided into four clinical subtypes: 1 relapsing-remitting MS, 2 second- ary progressive MS, 3 primary progressive MS, and 4 clinically isolated syndrome. Relapsing-remitting MS does not affect life expectancy. However, because of the neurodegenerative and progressive course of the disease, patients accumulate physical and cognitive disabilities over time that result in impaired ability to work, increased financial burden, and slightly increased mortality 2 3 4. A variety of possible risk and prognostic indicators have been identified that may predict the course of disease, particularly the extent of relapses and disability.

Multiple Sclerosis and Pregnancy

Multiple sclerosis is the most common neurological disease of young adults that causes major disability. In Romania, it is estimated that this disease has a prevalence of 35—40 per , inhabitants. It is a disease that begins at the age of 20—40 years and is times more common in women than in men. More than half of patients with MS develop the disease in their fertile period of life; therefore, MS patients use contraceptive methods while being under our treatment. Since several therapeutic options have been implemented with good efficiency in the disease stabilization, increasingly more patients begin to wonder about the possibility of having a child and about the possible risks of pregnancy. The evolution during pregnancy and the lactation period has been favorable, with lower relapses and side effects comparable to those in the general population. In addition, babies born to mothers with MS have not had a significantly different mean gestational age or birth weight compared to babies born to healthy mothers.

Pregnancy rates are rapidly increasing among women of reproductive age diagnosed with multiple sclerosis MS. Through pre-conception, pregnancy and post-partum periods, there is a need for disease control management, to decrease chances of MS relapses while avoiding potential risks to the mother and the fetus. However, pregnancy is not always compatible with the available highly effective MS treatments.

Most disease-modifying drugs DMDs are contraindicated in pregnancy. Management of MS is especially challenging for pregnant patients, as withdrawal of DMDs leave the patient at risk of increased disease activity. We, a group of experts in MS care from countries in the Arab Gulf, present our consensus recommendations on the management of MS in these patients. Where possible, a patient planning pregnancy can be switched to a DMD considered safe in this setting.

A set of guidelines on multiple sclerosis MS and pregnancy have been produced for the UK, supported by the Association of British Neurologists. The first of their kind, the guidance covers all elements of care related to pregnancy for those living with MS, from pre-pregnancy support to management of medication during pregnancy, birth-related guidance and postpartum advice. It is common for women to be diagnosed with MS in early adulthood before they have begun, or completed, their family. However, until now there has been insufficient evidence to support much needed discussions around family planning and management of their MS and pregnancy simultaneously. This invaluable guidance provides the information needed for clinicians to have informed discussions and for patients to make informed decisions about their lives, their families and their MS. They also recommend the creation of joint neuro-obstetric clinics to optimally manage people with MS for the duration of their pregnancy and post-partum journey.

Introduction

For most women, the disease course itself will not be affected by pregnancy or breastfeeding. MS is highly individualized, and your disease characteristics and treatment plan are significant considerations in your family planning. There is no evidence that MS impairs fertility. Studies have shown that some types of fertility treatment may increase the risk of relapses in women with MS, with relapse rates increasing in the three months after in vitro fertilization. However, a more recent study did not find an increase in relapses with the use of fertility treatment Bove et al, This is an area of ongoing research and more concrete recommendations will hopefully follow.

 Прошу прощения. Офицер покачал головой, словно не веря своим глазам. - Я должен был вам рассказать… но думал, что тот тип просто псих. - Какой тип? - Беккер хмуро взглянул на полицейского. - Тот, что вызвал скорую. Он болтал что-то на ужаснейшем испанском, который мне только доводилось слышать. - Он сказал, что на руке у мистера Танкадо было кольцо.

Танкадо посмотрел вверх, на свои пальцы, на кольцо, а затем, умоляюще, - на тучного господина. Это была предсмертная мольба. Энсей Танкадо незаметно кивнул, словно говоря:. И тут же весь обмяк. - Боже всемилостивый, - прошептал Джабба. Камера вдруг повернулась к укрытию Халохота. Убийцы там уже не .

Тогда всему придет конец. Директор нахмурился и повернулся к экрану.

    The risk of MS relapses is decreased during pregnancy and increased postpartum. Data are lacking regarding the risks of disease-modifying treatments during pregnancy. There may be an increased risk of MS relapses after use of assisted reproductive techniques.

    Family planning is an important consideration for women with multiple sclerosis MS , who are often diagnosed during their reproductive years.

    To understand the implications of pregnancy on MS symptoms and their In the absence of clear guidelines, should women ever be advised to.
