OBJECTIVE Multiple sclerosis (MS) shows evidence of many distinctive aspects of an autoimmune disorder, including a polygenic inheritance. A recent candidate gene for susceptibility to MS is CD24, which has also been shown to be associated with disease progression. This study was designed to examine whether there is a relationship between the CD24 genotype, oligoclonal band (OCB) status and IgG index in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of MS patients. METHODS A total of 27 definite MS patients… CONTINUE READING
