Efforts to identify all cases of multiple sclerosis MS since among Faroese have been continuing for over a quarter century. As of prevalence was 66 per , age adjusted to US population, with a rate of for women and 34 for men. Median survival was at 29 to 34 years with no ificant difference by sex. Faroese with overseas residence indicated that at least 2 years of exposure from age 11 on in a high-risk area are required for acquisition of MS.
Among native resident Faroese the first instance of symptom onset was inheralding a type 1 epidemic of 21 cases. This was followed by three successive epidemics of 10, 10, 13 cases, with membership in each epidemic defined by calendar time and age of exposure.
Age at exposure for epidemic I was 11 to 45 years; for later epidemics age 11 was the minimum. We think they introduced a widespread, specific, persistent but unknown infection, probably asymptomatic, which we call the primary multiple sclerosis affection PMSA. The Faroese provide an ideal location to determine the nature of PMSA, since the disease has remained geographically stable for 50 years without further spread throughout the islands.
