Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We linked several population-based clinical and health administrative databases in British Columbia, Canada. We identified and compared birth outcomes of pregnancies fathered by men with multiple sclerosis (MS) (n=202) and men from a frequency-matched general population cohort (n=981) between 1996 and 2010. Using multivariate models, we analyzed the association of paternal MS, disease duration at conception and disability (as measured by the Expanded Disability Status Scale) with birth weight and gestational age. Paternal MS and MS-related clinical factors were not significantly associated with birth outcomes (p>0.05). This study provides assurance to expecting fathers with MS and their families.
