Associations Between Changes in Ferritin Levels and Susceptibility-Weighted Imaging Filtered Phase in Patients with Relapsing-Remitting Multiple…

Conclusions: Short-term increases in ferritin coincident with IFNß-1a SC therapy are not associated with significant concurrent iron deposition in the SDGM, and are consistent with reductions in phase-visible T2 lesions. These data suggest that increased serum ferritin after initiation of IFNß-1a does not negatively impact brain iron accumulation.Study supported by: EMD Serono, Inc., Rockland, MA,* and Pfizer Inc, New York, NY.1.LeVine et al.
