    Background: There is considerable geographic variation in stroke mortality around the United Kingdom (UK). Whether this is due to geographical differences in incidence or case-fatality is unclear. We conducted a systematic review of high-quality studies documenting the incidence of any stroke...

    The link between optic neuritis and multiple sclerosis is well established, as is the increased risk of conversion to multiple sclerosis, with lesions seen at presentation on the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the brain. One or more asymptomatic lesions were present in 77% of the optic...

    The article presents a study which determines the incident of multiple sclerosis (MS) in France from November 2000 to October 2007. The study uses Bayesian approach, statistical analysis, and disease mapping to estimate the incidence of MS and its geographic variations. Results show that the...

    Objective: Several groups have reported apparent association between month of birth and multiple sclerosis. We sought to test the extent to which such studies might be confounded by extraneous variables such as year and place of birth. Methods: Using national birth statistics from 2 continents,...
