Dr. Anna Karin Hedstrom and colleagues from the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm analyzed data from two population-based studies-one with 1343 incident cases of MS and 2900 controls and another with 5129 prevalent MS cases and 4509 controls.
The team compared the occurrence of MS among study subjects exposed to shift work at various ages against those who had never been exposed. All study subjects resided in Sweden and were between the ages of 16 and 70. Shift work was defined as permanent or alternating working hours between 9 p.m. and 7 a.m.
