Influence of PITRS on Quality of Life of Patients with Multiple Sclerosis


Aim – studying of quality of life of the patients with multiple sclerosis receiving the medicines changing the course of multiple sclerosis, the first and second line for identification of the most optimum methods of therapy of a disease.

Materials and methods. Survey of 100 patients aged from 18 up to 65 years receiving medicines of the first and second line by means of a scale of hospital alarm and a depression of HADS and the questionnaire of quality of life of SF–36 is conducted.

Results. The obtained data have shown that medicines of the second line authentically raise physical and social indicators of quality of life; in addition, the interrelation between an emotional condition of the patient and degree of his social activity is found.

Conclusion. It is established that the alarm and a depression significantly limit physical activity of the patient, reduce independent assessment by the patient of a condition of the health and quality of life of patients. It is necessary to estimate the level of alarm and a depression at patients with multiple sclerosis and to correct the phenomena of emotional instability as they influence physical health, social contacts, level of pain and, as a result, quality of life.

Conflicts of Interest: nothing to declare.
