Clinical Case:

A 55-year-old woman with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS) has had various symptoms and attacks ever since she was diagnosed with the disorder 20 years ago.

She has experienced urinary incontinence, optic neuritis, fatigue, depression, insomnia, muscle weakness, and paresthesias at various times.

She has been treated for specific symptoms as needed, including treatment for depression, incontinence, and insomnia.

In addition to symptom-specific treatment, she has also received systemic treatment for MS.

Question:

Which of the following statements regarding systemic MS treatments is the most accurate?

Answer Options:

Corticosteroids shorten the severity and duration of symptoms from an acute exacerbation, but they have no proven effect on overall disease progression
Corticosteroids do not alter the course of an acute exacerbation, but they have been proven to slow overall disease progression
Interferon (IFN) agents (eg, IFN β1a, IFN β1b) have been approved for use in the United States but only for short-term use in acute MS exacerbations
Only intravenous immunoglobulin and plasma exchange have shown consistent benefits in randomized placebo-controlled trials
