HONOLULU -- Muscle strength and lung function were significantly enhanced in multiple sclerosis patients who participated in a remotely supervised at-home exercise program, a researcher said here.

After three months, maximum isometric force in trunk flexion and extension as well as peak expiratory flow were increased significantly compared with a no-intervention control group, said Alexander Tallner, a doctoral candidate at the University of Erlangen in Germany.

Tallner reported preliminary findings from the first 32 patients enrolled in a planned 124-patient randomized trial in a poster session here at the American Academy of Neurology meeting.
