  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the coorelation between patient factors, health care provider factors, drug factors and compliance in patients with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (RMS) treated with Disease Modifying Agents (DMA). We hypothesize that a number of factors influence compliance with DMA's.
