Somatosensory evoked potentials were studied in 50 patients with clinically reliably confirmed diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in various disease stages. In a part of these patients the study was repeated after 3 years. The latency changes, amplitude changes and shape abnormalities of the obtained N9, N13 and N20 responses were evaluated.

Decaris was given for 6 months to 57 patients with clinically reliably diagnosed multiple sclerosis. For evaluating the physical fitness of the patients the 10-point scoring system of Kurtzke was used. The drug was given intermittently to 2 groups of patients in a 14-day cycle of 3 tablets daily for 3 days: and in a 7-day cycle of 3 tablets for 3 days. Each… (More)
