Abstract

We have previously reported that myelin basic protein appears in CSF during acute attacks of multiple sclerosis. These studies have been extended to over 700 patients, 91 with multiple sclerosis. The data continues to indicate that myelin basic protein is released into cerebrospinal fluid during acute attacks of multiple sclerosis. We are currently characterizing the basic protein in the CSF.
