Longitudinal Effects Of Interferon-beta-1a Treatment On Cortical Thickness In Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis Patients (P6.114)

CONCLUSIONS: We provide anatomic evidence of decreased cortical thickness in various brain structures in spite of good clinical response to interferon-beta-1a treatment over a two-year period. These findings may serve as non-invasive markers of individual disease progression.Study Supported by: MerckSerono research grant.Disclosure: Dr. Achiron has received personal compensation for activities with Teva Neuroscience and Novartis.
