Deficient phosphorylation of stat-1 in leukocytes identifies neutralizing antibodies in multiple sclerosis patients treated with interferon-beta
(Public Library of Science, 2014-02-19)
Background: Anti interferon-beta (IFN-β) neutralizing antibodies (NAb) affect efficacy of treatment of multiple sclerosis patients, but exactly when the detrimental effects of NAbs offset therapeutic efficacy is debated. ...
Employment among patients with multiple sclerosis - A population study
(Public Library of Science, 2014-07-23)
Discovery and initial verification of differentially abundant proteins between multiple sclerosis patients and controls using iTRAQ and SID-SRM
In the present study, we aimed to discover cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) proteins with significant abundance difference between early multiple sclerosis patients and controls, and do an initial verification of these proteins ...
Time trends in the incidence and prevalence of multiple sclerosis in Norway during eight decades
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2015-06-05)
Norway has been subjected to numerous epidemiological investigations on the prevalence and incidence of multiple sclerosis (MS), dating back to 1935. The objective of this study was to review the studies on the prevalence ...
Inflammation markers in multiple sclerosis: CXCL16 reflects and may also predict disease activity
(PLOS ONE, 2013-09-19)
Background. Serum markers of inflammation are candidate biomarkers in multiple sclerosis (MS). ω-3 fatty acids are suggested to have anti-inflammatory properties that might be beneficial in MS. We aimed to explore the ...
Alpha-tocopherol and MRI outcomes in multiple sclerosis - association and prediction
Objective: Alpha-tocopherol is the main vitamin E compound in humans, and has important antioxidative and immunomodulatory properties. The aim of this study was to study alpha-tocopherol concentrations and their relationship ...
Identity-by-descent mapping in a Scandinavian multiple sclerosis cohort
(Nature Publishing Group, 2015)
In an attempt to map chromosomal regions carrying rare gene variants contributing to the risk of multiple sclerosis (MS), we identified segments shared identical-by-descent (IBD) using the software BEAGLE 4.0’s refined IBD ...
