From JAMA Neurology (June 11, 2019), a report on a large Swedish study, "Changes in the risk of reaching MS disability milestones in recent decades: A nationwide population-based cohort study in Sweden":

Conclusions and Relevance

Risk of reaching major disability milestones has significantly decreased over the last decade in patients with relapsing-onset MS in Sweden. Several factors could potentially be responsible for this observation. However, given that no change was seen in disability accrual of patients with progressive-onset MS and the absence of efficacious treatment option in this group, increased use of more efficacious disease-modifying treatments could be a possible driver of this change.
