This is a prospective, noninterventional, multicenter, observational study in MS patients with any disease subtype who are beginning Fampyra (fampridine) treatment in the postmarketing setting. The decision to enroll a patient into this study will not be made until after the neurologist and patient decide to begin Fampyra treatment and Fampyra has been prescribed.
Prescribing neurologists will be invited to participate in the study as Investigators. During the study, the Investigators should treat patients according to local clinical practice. Under the protocol, the Investigators are not required to perform any medical procedures that are outside of their normal clinical practice. Any cases of lack of efficacy or deterioration of a patient's health should be diagnosed and managed as per local guidelines. Data will be collected at Enrollment (Baseline) and Follow-Up. Follow-Up visits should occur according to clinical practice.
