Sclerosi multipla

Più forte del destino. Tra camici e paillette. La mia lotta alla sclerosi multipla

Antonella Ferrari

editore: Mondadori

pagine: 173

Essere una donna disabile in un mondo in cui l'immagine femminile appare sempre patinata e perfetta non è facile, ma Antonella Ferrari, attrice e ballerina, malata di sclerosi multipla, non si è mai arresa tanto da diventare un punto di riferimento, una fonte di ispirazione per tante persone meno fortunate. "Mi sono beccata tantissime porte in faccia, tantissime delusioni ma dovevo andare avanti anche per tutti quelli che vivono bloccati per colpa di una malattia." In questo libro Antonella, per la prima volta, racconta la sua storia. E lo fa senza censure, condividendo i suoi momenti di sconforto, la rabbia, la frustrazione, la fatica di rialzarsi dopo ogni caduta ma anche la grande gioia data da ogni piccola conquista e l'enorme soddisfazione di avercela fatta, di aver trovato il suo posto nel mondo dello spettacolo.

Primer on Multiple Sclerosis

Barbara S. Giesser

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 504

Primer on Multiple Sclerosis was developed to provide a comprehensive overview of the clinical and basic science aspects of MS. It is designed to be of practical use to clinical neurologists, and addresses all of the major issues that may occur in the management of persons with MS. The reader is provided with the latest information on the science of MS, including immunology, genetics, epidemiology and pathology, as well as a summary of the newest directions in basic science research. Guidelines for diagnosis and appropriate use of diagnostic modalities are presented. All clinical aspects of MS are discussed, including extensive information on aspects that may be more challenging for the neurologist to manage, such as sleep disorders and pain. Disease modifying therapies, including those that are FDA approved, as well as off label and experimental therapies are discussed. Finally, there are chapters on employment and legal issues, as well as an overview of clinical trials and clinical trial outcome measures, which are helpful in reviewing the scientific literature in these areas.

Multiple Sclerosis

Recovery of Function and Neurorehabilitation

Alan J. Thompson, Giancarlo Comi
e altri

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 260

Recent developments in basic and applied science have led to better understanding of disease mechanisms and more efficient therapies for multiple sclerosis. The most effective way of managing these patients is through a carefully planned neurorehabilitation programme. The main aims are to reduce disability and handicap and improve functions through effective training, stimulating activity and social participation. As the first text on recovery of function and neurorehabilitation in MS, this book focuses on mechanisms of recovery, application of neuroplasticity to therapeutic interventions, and determination of the efficiency of these interventions. Basic principles of neurorehabilitation in MS are described, as well as techniques for treating specific syndromes which may occur in MS. Written and edited by leading clinicians and researchers, the book achieves an excellent balance between basic science, pathophysiology, and clinical rehabilitation. An essential resource for clinicians and therapists treating patients with multiple sclerosis, neurophysiologists, and health care advisors.

Guarire dalla sclerosi multipla

Ann Boroch

editore: Il Punto d'Incontro

pagine: 320

La sclerosi multipla è una malattia autoimmune del sistema nervoso centrale progressivamente invalidante, che colpisce circa tre milioni di individui in tutto un mondo. Si tratta di una condizione infiammatoria che distrugge la mielina, la bianca sostanza grassa che isola i nervi, impedendo la trasmissione degli impulsi nervosi. Sebbene questa malattia sia per lo più ritenuta incurabile, Ann Boroch ha sviluppato un innovativo protocollo di trattamento che sta producendo risultati sorprendenti. Questo testo descrive la sua ricerca, la storia di coloro che hanno avuto la meglio sulla sclerosi multipla e una sezione pratica che spiega come sviluppare il proprio piano di trattamento.

The Clinical Neuropsychiatry of Multiple Sclerosis

Anthony Feinstein

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 274

Multiple sclerosis is the most common cause of neurological disability in young and middle-aged adults. This fully updated and revised new edition provides a detailed account of the many neuropsychiatric disorders associated with MS and is relevant to both the research and the clinical setting. Using the latest brain imaging findings and results from treatment trials, the symptoms, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of depression in MS are covered, as are psychosocial factors and the link between depression and MRI abnormalities. Subsequent chapters focus on cognitive dysfunction in MS, including the natural history of cognitive change, the use of screening instruments and neuropsychological batteries, brain imaging correlations and management strategies. The book concludes with a survey of the behavioral benefits and risks associated with disease-modifying drugs. It will be valuable to all mental health professionals, neurologists, and others caring for those affected by MS.

Multiple Sclerosis

Etiology, Diagnosis, and New Treatment Strategies

Howard L. Weiner, Michael J. Olek

editore: Humana Press Inc.

pagine: 246

A synthesis of current concepts about the evaluation, treatment, and future directions in MS. On the evaluation side, the authors review the use of MRI, magnetic resonance spectroscopy, functional MRI, and three-dimensional MRI, and consider the rapidly developing body of pathologic information they have yielded. On the treatment side, the focus is on recently approved medications (Novantrone), new indications for medications (CHAMPS Trial), medications in development (Oral Interferon Tau, Oral Copaxone, and Oral Cellcept), immunosuppressive therapy for both progressive disease and symptomatic therapy; the current medications for treating relapsing-remitting MS (Avonex, Betaseron, and Copaxone) are also discussed. For future directions, the authors present the current best thinking, as well as the latest discoveries in immunology relating to MS, including groundbreaking B-cell research and its applications to specific immunotherapies, and the use of immune markers for tracking the disease.

Multiple Sclerosis in Clinical Practice

Aaron Miller, Fred Lubin
e altri

editore: Taylor & Francis Ltd

pagine: 256

Because multiple sclerosis is a variable, unpredictable condition of unknown aetiology and poorly understood pathogenesis, a condition that places an enormous burden - physical, psychological, social and financial on those affected by it (patients, family, careers and friends), unanswered questions need addressing. Popular television shows like "West Wing" have brought MS to the attention of millions of viewers. Multiple Sclerosis in Clinical Practice provides answers for those in family practice when being interviewed by patients and family. Clinical trial data are analyzed and presented in a clear, concise style so that those diagnosing and treating MS patients can do so in an effective manner. This is a practical guide for all those working in clinical practice.
