The professor at Munster University, Germany: “Good progress have been achieved in the field of MS treatment”
The professor at Munster University, Germany, said that in recent years, Iran could achieve good progress in the field of MS (Multiple Sclerosis).
According to the public relations of Razavi Hospital and in line with the 1st Razavi International Multiple Sclerosis Congress, Dr. Ali Gorji, the professor of Munster University, Germany, stated that with respect to the growth of MS patients in the country, it seems that we have fallen behind the developed countries in the field of research but promoting researches in this section can put Iran among the first-ranked countries in terms of diagnosis and treatment of MS in future.
Pointing out to some the aspects of the disease, the scientific chairman of the 1st Razavi International Multiple Sclerosis Congress said that MS is a disabling disease that affects the brain and spinal cord resulting in loss of control, vision, balance and sensation. “Without social support, course of treatment will be difficult; therefore, following some issues such as early diagnosis and access to drugs and treatment in some cities and towns which are far from the center is necessary”, Dr, Gorji added.
Referring to the unknown causes of MS, Dr, Gorji said that, “It is half a century that MS has been investigated intensely and dozens of factors have been introduced as the causes of this disease; however, as the proposed causes were not decisive, no definite and absolute cure for MS has been recognized”. He continued that the aim of the congress hosted by Razavi Hospital is to enjoy international experiences and effective interactions in the field of this disease. This congress also aims to make the young researchers familiar with this issue and encourage them to do new researches in this field.

In response to the question whether people with the disease can live a normal life, he stated that strengthening the incentives is of great importance in the course of treatment. Part of this is possible through rehabilitation which aims to increase the ability to move and maintain the performance of the patients that will ultimately lead the improvement of quality of life.
Moreover, focusing on a change in the quality of people’s diet and their daily habits, he express that lifestyle is really effective in the incidence of this disease and its severity.
