Treatment in Multiple Sclerosis - Cognition and Vocation

Study Description

Effects of Teriflunomide (Aubagio) on Cognitive and Vocational Outcomes in Multiple Sclerosis

Cognitive impairment is common in MS and has devastating impact on functional activities. There is a great demand for medications that will enhance cognitive capacity in MS patients. The effect of teriflunomide on cognition and vocational capacity is unknown. The investigators will address these questions in a sample of 30 relapsing MS patients treated with teriflunomide. Cognitive impairment will be measured by calculating an information processing speed index and a memory composite index from conventional, validated neuropsychological tests as recommended by consensus opinion publications. Vocational performance will be monitored using a newly developed online survey called the Multiple Sclerosis Vocational Monitoring Survey (MSVMS). This study will elucidate the effect of teriflunomide on these important outcomes.
