The Rate Of New GM Lesion Development Is Similar In All MS Disease Subtypes (P6.131)

CONCLUSIONS: In the first phase of our longitudinal study, the rate of GML accumulation was similar across all MS subtypes including patients with CIS, despite differences at the baseline cortical lesion count and volumes. Our GML results are similar to those reported for brain atrophy: both are correlated with disability, are seen more in progressive stages, but both atrophy and new GML develop at a similar rate in all disease types. Those findings suggest that MS causes grey matter demyelination and tissue damage from the early stages of the illness.Study Supported by: Multiple Sclerosis Of Great Britain and Northern IrelandDisclosure: Dr. Abdel-Fahim has nothing to disclose.
