Abstract

Impact of COVID-19 on chronically immunosuppressed neurological patients as an extension of an ongoing pharmacovigilance study of people with multiple sclerosis eligible for treatment. We will assess the impact of chronic immunosuppressive disease modifying treatments (DMT) for multiple sclerosis (OPTIMISE) with an extended focus on collection of COVID-19 related morbidity data collection. The aim is to assess the differential risk of infection with DMT and estimate the relative risks with alternative DMT.
