The European Register for Multiple Sclerosis (EUReMS) is a tool EMSP is developing to assess, compare and enhance the status of people with MS throughout the EU.
The project, a sustainable European Network of over ten national MS data registers, is now half way through. On the 10th October 2012, the EUReMS consortium met in Lyon to set up the next steps by adopting a strategic plan for the launch of the test phase of EUReMS, beginning of 2013.
The test phase studies will address: Epidemiology of MS, Disease Modifying Drugs Access and Long term Efficacy, Quality of life in MS and Health Economics. These studies will be run between April 2013 and June 2014.
EMSP is pleased to acknowledge and thank its supporters and sponsors for the EUReMS project. Especially, we would like to mention the support of ECTRIMS which hosted the EUReMS project meeting during its 28th Annual Congress and was represented there by Prof. Maria Trojano, newly appointed President of ECTRIMS. Professor Maria Trojano renewed her support to the EUReMS project on behalf of ECTRIMS and expressed her willingness to collaborate further on this important initiative.
The EUReMS project has received co-funding from the European Union, in the framework of the Second Health Programme 2008-2013.
MS-ID project (2007-2009) demonstrated the feasibility of an European Register for Multiple Sclerosis. Therefore EMSP pursued its efforts in order to prepare the upcoming project so called “European Register for Multiple Sclerosis (EUReMS) – A tool to assess, compare and enhance the status of people with MS throughout the EU”.
