I have developed in particular the study of prognostic factors, multiple sclerosis of the child and adolescent, as well as family planning in women with multiple sclerosis. I am currently a member of the Advisory Ethics Committee (CEA) of the Vall d'Hebron University Hospital.

I have published more than 260 articles in national and international journals and am a regular reviewer of indexed journals both national and international. My factor H is currently 60 and until May 2023 my work has received 15,464 citations.

Research lines

Multiple sclerosis and Gender

We focused on studying the impact of sexual hormones and the different reproductive stages of a woman's life on multiple sclerosis. As part of this project we have achieved the following publications:


1 - Menarche, pregnancies, and breastfeeding do not modify long-term prognosis in multiple sclerosis.

2 - Oral contraceptives do not modify the risk of a second attack and disability accrual in a prospective cohort of women with a clinically isolated syndrome and early multiple sclerosis.

3 - Menopause does not modify disability trajectories in a longitudinal cohort of women with clinically isolated syndrome and multiple sclerosis followed from disease onset.

4 - Menopause and multiple sclerosis: Influence on prognosis and role of disease-modifying drugs and hormonal replacement therapy.

In total, different projects of six research groups will be promoted, focusing on precision medicine and advanced therapies.

Dr. Carmen Espejo and Dr. Georgina Arrambide, researchers at Cemcat and Vall d'Hebron Research Institute, are the first authors of the article.

The research findings propose to modify the McDonald 2017 criteria, only in those in whom diagnosis using the current criteria is not possible.
