Disease a big bluster to job prospects

Multiple sclerosis (MS) delivers a huge blow to your job prospects as well as your health, Australian research shows.

The auto-immune disease, in which the body's immune system attacks the central nervous system, forces almost two-thirds of its sufferers out of the labor force.

New findings from the Australian MS Longitudinal Study shows that 64 per cent of Australians with MS are no longer in paid work.

Canberra Hospital-based Dr Rex Simmons, who is project manager for the study, says MS sufferers had a lower workforce contribution rate than people living with a range of common chronic diseases.
