Suicide attempts in multiple sclerosis

Stenager, et al. Mult Scler. 2011 Apr 20.

Aims: (1) to estimate the risk of suicide attempts in PwMS in Denmark and compare the risk to the background population; (2) to estimate the risk of suicide attempts in PwMS receiving immunomodulating therapy compared with untreated patients.

Results: No increased risk for suicide attempts was found in PwMS. No difference in number of suicide attempts in treated and untreated PwMS was found.

"Good news and contrary to previous literature and current dogma."
