NYSMSC Registry

The New York State Multiple Sclerosis Consortium has created the largest and best database of MS patients anywhere in the world. More than 9000 patients have been enrolled in the NYSMSC registry. In addition, annual follow-up data have been collected on approximately 7000 patients during seven years of follow-up. The data accumulated in the NYSMSC during these last seven years comprise a worldwide, unique, systematically-collected MS epidemiological database and are of tremendous value to New York State medical schools and medical students. Projects involving natural history, genetic, and descriptive epidemiology characteristics of MS patients are currently underway.
