SummaryThe presence of free light chains (FLC) was investigated in 32 patients with clinically definite or laboratory supported definite multiple sclerosis (MS), 2 patients with neurosyphilis and 10 normal controls. The detection of FLC in unconcentrated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) was performed by means of agarose isoelectric focusing, followed by transfer of proteins to nitrocellulose membranes, double immunofixation, avidin-biotin amplification and peroxidase staining. Bands due to FLC were… CONTINUE READING
