Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Comment by Dr. Daniel Selchen, Toronto, Canada
Multiple sclerosis: An analysis of long-term data from the PRISMS study of IFNbeta-1a indicates that baseline EDSS score and a change in EDSS from baseline to month 24 of treatment strongly predict outcomes at 15-year follow-up (Kappos et al. ENS 2013). Conclusions were based on follow-up of 291 subjects of the 560 patients (52%) originally enrolled.
