Sarah Thomas from the BU Clinical Research Unit is part of a multi-disciplinary research team on a grant recently funded by the UK Multiple Sclerosis Society that starts this month. The grant is entitled “Which treatments are effective for fatigue in people with multiple sclerosis (MS): A systematic review with process and meta-analyses” and was submitted in response to a national commissioned call. The project is led by Prof Rona Moss-Morris at King’s College London (KCL) and involves other collaborators at KCL as well as Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. The main aims of the project are to provide an overview of current evidence and make recommendations for the design of a future clinical trial for fatigue in people with MS. This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with other leaders in the field and further develop expertise in the area of MS-fatigue.
Hi, I am really pleased to be involved with this Research Project as well, to represent people with MS. I suffer very badly at times with Fatigue, it can affect my whole life. So it will be fantastic to see how the Project progresses and how it will hopefully lead to more help for those of us who live with fatigue.
