The complexity of understanding cancer risk in MS is increased by inconsistencies in study design, and the lack of age-, sex-, and ethnicity-specific risk estimates. Aims of our study were to estimate the incidence of cancers in the MS population of Catania (Italy) and to evaluate the impact of disease-modifying treatments (DMTs) in cancer risk.

Abstract

The complexity of understanding cancer risk in MS is increased by inconsistencies in study design, and the lack of age-, sex-, and ethnicity-specific risk estimates. Aims of our study were to estimate the incidence of cancers in the MS population of Catania (Italy) and to evaluate the impact of disease-modifying treatments (DMTs) in cancer risk.
