- Extensive immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome in Fingolimod-associated PML: a case report with 7 Tesla MRI databy Tim Sinnecker on August 11, 2019

- Association of Intrathecal Immunoglobulin G Synthesis With Disability Worsening in Multiple Sclerosisby Christiane Gasperi on April 30, 2019
CONCLUSIONS AND RELEVANCE: Patients with new diagnoses of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis or clinically isolated syndrome with intrathecal IgG synthesis had a higher risk of and shorter time to EDSS worsening across a 4-year period of follow-up. Intrathecal IgG synthesis is a potentially useful marker for disability worsening in patients with multiple sclerosis and may be useful for early treatment decisions.
