A CSF Poly(C)-avid ribonuclease (RNase) activity was determined in serum and CSF of 11 controls and 75 neurological patients (34 multiple sclerosis (MS), 18 infectious processes and 23 other neurological diseases (OND]. In controls, the blood-CSF ratio of RNase activity is low. This fact and the absence of correlation between serum and CSF RNase activity (except in OND group), and between CSF albumin and CSF RNase activity in controls and MS patients, suggest an intrathecal origin for the major… CONTINUE READING
