Background: Identification of MS registries and databases that are currently in use in Europe as well as a detailed knowledge of their content and structure is important in order to facilitate comprehensive analysis and comparison of data. Methods: National MS registries or databases were identified by literature search, from the results of the MS Barometer 2011 and by asking 33 national MS societies. A standardized questionnaire was developed and sent to the registries' leaders, followed by telephone interviews with them. Results: Twenty registries were identified, with 13 completing the questionnaire and seven being interviewed by telephone. These registries differed widely for objectives, structure, collected data, and for patients and centres included. Despite this heterogeneity, common objectives of the registries were epidemiology (n=10), long-term therapy outcome (n=8), healthcare research (n=9) and support/basis for clinical trials (n=8). While physician-based outcome measures (EDSS) are used in all registries, data from patients' perspectives were only collected in six registries. Conclusions: The detailed information on a large number of national MS registries in Europe is a prerequisite to facilitating harmonized integration of existing data from MS registries and databases, as well as comprehensive analyses and comparison across European populations. © The Author(s) 2014.

Alcoholism | Year: 2011

Gustav Mahler, late romantic composer whose works were forbidden and destroyed, found his place in history of music as a leading figure of his time. His life was filled with hard work and personal tragedies. By the time he had achieved the deserved recognition, his health almost completely deteriorated. Problems started in his youth with frequent purulent anginas, but soon complications of rheumatic fever developed. His unhealthy habits of smoking, irregular feeding patterns and almost continuous stress contributed to his state. Attacks of angina pectoris interrupted his stage performances. By the age of 51 he had developed bacterial endocarditis and died in sepsis and renal failure after morphine shots.

Alcoholism | Year: 2010

Russian composer (1844-1908) Rimsky-Korsakow led a very active and prestigious life. He was very active musically and socially, which led to exhaustion. As a consequence, he started experiencing respiratory and coronary difficulties. He eventually died of a myocardial infarction at the age of 64 at the peek of his glory and creativity. © Center for Study and Control of Alcoholism and Other Addictions.

The field of music and medicine in Croatia has been scientifically developed since 17 th century. For 40 years the Croatian Association for Music Therapy and the Croatian Medical Music Association have been promoting and developing this field. The Male chamber choir Physicians Musicians of Zagreb is engaged not only in cultural, but also in professional and scientific activities with already 5 international symposia organized on theme Medicine and Music.
