Online registries offer the opportunity to streamline follow-up through large-scale, long-term, and cost-effective data collection. Registry data can be analysed retrospectively to compare outcomes based on a particular exposure. Additionally, this type of data allows patients to get involved with research and offer a personal perspective on their disease. Ms Annalaura Lerede (Imperial College London, UK) presented a prospective registry data analysis reflecting 55-year-long disease trajectories, using data from a 10-year period [1]. The aim was to gather new insights into the evolution of physical disability across MS subtypes. Ms Lerede focused on 2 PROs, namely the Multip...
