    CBT can be an effective intervention for reducing moderate depression, over the short-term, in patients with MS. Early evidence suggests this may also improve patient quality of life. Further research is needed to evaluate longer-term maintenance and the cost-effectiveness of this intervention within this population.

    Hi Abhishil..a good effort with your reviews. I believe you had done a systemic review of the articles and would like to provide some suggestions.it could have given a good exhaustive summery having done enough literature work. I could not see the statistical analysis to assess the results or draw a conclusion. .a meta analysis or yhe way to compare to reach the conclusion would have helped.Also please try to use more of the original article s for the systemic analysis and some better reference techniques. A good effort though!

      Thanks Anshul for the feedback. i do agree with your comments. Adding up to your comments there is much scope of research in MSand there is very limited data that could provide you with relevant and sound information. Speaking of the reference part, it has been followed up as per university requirement.

    Hello Abhishil,

    Very nice article and good efforts. You tried to explain very well. Early evidence suggests this may also improve patient quality of life. Further research is needed to evaluate longer-term maintenance and the cost-effectiveness of this intervention within this population.
