We determined the interferon (IFN) serum levels and in vitro activated IFN production in eight patients with relapsing/remitting multiple sclerosis (MS), using a whole-blood test system and the mitogen concanavalin A and the viral antigen Newcastle disease virus for induction of the IFN production. During the overall study period of 12 months we observed… CONTINUE READING
