Hypothesis: Treatment with Glatiramer acetate prevents deterioration of gait in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.
During the study patients will undergo a 3 dimensional gait analysis before starting treatment with glatiramer acetate and after 1 year of treatment.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Multiple Sclerosis||Drug: Glatiramer acetate||Not Applicable|
Patients with a definite diagnosis of relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (MS) will undergo a 3 dimensional gait analysis before initiation of treatment with glatiramer acetate. The gait analysis will include kinematic evaluation using a Charnwood Dynamics CODA CX-1 system, 4 AMTI force plates and a Noraxon telemetric EMG system. Patients will be videotaped and will also undergo a detailed physical examination by a physical therapist.
Treatment with Glatiramer acetate will be initiated after the gait analysis. Therapy will be observed and controlled by a neurologist fromn the staff of the Multiple Sclerosis Center.
Repeat gait analysis will be performed after one year of treatment.
