Exploring fatigue in children and adolescents with MS
Professor Rona Moss-Morris

About the project
Fatigue is a common symptom in children and adolescents with MS. In this project, researchers will review what is currently known about the factors involved in MS fatigue in children and adolescents. A group of children with MS will then be interviewed to better understand the impact of fatigue both for themselves and for those close to them. Building on these interviews, a larger study will be conducted to compare children and adolescents with MS to other groups such as those with chronic fatigue syndrome. All of this research will feed into the development of a model of fatigue and potential self-management therapies to help reduce the impact of fatigue on children and adolescents with MS.
How will it help people with MS?
The difference you can make
The next research breakthrough is in reach
Your donation will help stop MS.
£30could process one blood sample, giving researchers crucial information about genes and the immune system.
£50could pay for an hour on a microscope, so scientists can study cells and tissue in greater detail and improve their understanding of the biology of MS.
£100could pay for half an hour of MRI use, so researchers can monitor the success of clinical trials and understand MS in more detail.
Every penny you give really does take us a step closer to stopping MS. Your donation will make a difference.
£10a month could pay for lab equipment like microscope slides to study the building blocks of MS
£20a month could pay for lab equipment like petri dishes to grow bacteria important for studying genetics
£30a month could process a blood sample to help us understand what causes MS, so we can stop it in its tracks
Your regular donation means we can keep funding world class MS research with confidence. Together we will stop MS.
