Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Shown to Reduce Fatigue Associated with Multiple Sclerosis
New randomized trial may point to potential treatment option
People with multiple sclerosis (MS) who underwent a non-invasive form of electrical brain stimulation experienced significant reductions in fatigue, a common and often debilitating symptom of the disease, according to new research from the Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center at NYU Langone Health.
When compared to patients who were enrolled in a placebo arm of the study, those that received the stimulation —called transcranial direct current stimulation, or tDCS —were found to have about a six-point drop on a 32-point scale measuring fatigue severity, according to the findings.
