Animal studies suggest that elevated serum PRL levels may be related to neuroprotection or participate in remyelination after brain injury. To address this question, we estimated PRL levels in both serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in drug-free male and female patients with clinically-isolated syndrome (CIS) suggestive of MS (i.e. after the first… CONTINUE READING
