Demographic Patterns of MS Patients Using BRISA: An MS-Specific App in Germany
One of the key insights from the study is the wide diversity among MS patients and the need for extensive cohort characterization in the real-world scenario. Drugs for first-line treatment were most frequently used, followed by high-efficacy drugs. The relative frequencies of use of first-line and second-line treatment changed significantly with time since diagnosis. The study also identified the top five symptoms affecting users, thereby providing valuable insights from the patient's perspective.
