Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Evolution of the Daily Life score: Analysis of variance for repeated measurements. [ Time Frame: After 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evolution of the SF 36 score, Fatigue score, Beck's depression score: analysis of variance for repeated measurements [ Time Frame: Over 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Correlation coefficient with quality of life scales [ Time Frame: Over 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Kinetics of treatment discontinuation: Kaplan Meier [ Time Frame: Over 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Rate of treatment continuation [ Time Frame: After 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
