Peter Feys, PhD, Hasselt University, Hasselt, Belgium, discusses studies profiling cognitive-motor interference in cognitively impaired persons with progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) and determining the prevalence of motor and cognitive fatigability in progressive MS. It is known that some patients with MS have difficulties with dual-tasking, which is defined as the concurrent performance of two tasks that can be executed independently. A study that examined the cognitive-motor interference in cognitively impaired patients with progressive MS found a cognitive-motor impairment in those patients. Still, it’s not significantly different from those with relapsing-remitting MS. Another study looking at walking fatigability in progressive MS found that at least half of the patients experience walking fatigability, leading to impairments in daily life. This interview took place at the European Committee for Treatment and Research in Multiple Sclerosis (ECTRIMS) Congress 2022 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
