New research at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago has shown that MS patients could benefit from participating in a weekly stress management program.

Those study participants who took part in stress management therapy developed fewer new brain lesions, indicators of the impact of the disease in the brain.

"In MS the prevention of new brain lesions is an important marker used to judge how effective medications are. The new finding is an important step and the strongest evidence we have to date that stress is involved in MS," David Mohr explains.
