    CANADA: Exercise and Brain Health in MS
    Physical activity is now recognized as a therapy for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) that not only improves physical fitness and functional mobility, but there is some evidence that it may also positively influence the more invisible symptoms of the disease that represent "brain health" - fatigue, depression and cognitive impairment. One important feature of physical activity is that it reduces inflammation throughout the body and the brain. The goal of this research is to determine whether people with MS feel less fatigue, depression and cognitive impairment after a program of exercise because there is a decrease in the state of inflammation in the brain.

    DENMARK: Early Exercise Efforts in Multiple Sclerosis
    This study seeks to investigate whether early exercise efforts can expand the use of exercise in Multiple sclerosis (MS), from symptom treatment only, to early supplementary disease-modifying treatment. The study will be conducted in a randomized and controlled manner, with single blinding. Participants will be allocated to either a systematic aerobic exercise intervention or an educational programme on exercise and physical activity. Both interventions will last 1 year, and involve a 1 year follow-up period. It is hypothesized that early exercise efforts can modify the disease activity and disability progression.

    ITALY: A Task-oriented Circuit Training in Multiple Sclerosis
    Our primary hypothesis is that a two weeks high-intensity task-oriented circuit training followed by a structured 3 months home exercise program would have higher benefits compared to a delayed-treatment group as control in people with multiple sclerosis and mild to moderate gait impairment. Our secondary hypothesis is that there could be retention of clinical gains in subjects that underwent TOCT plus structured 3 months home exercise program.
