multiple sclerosis

Have you read one of the latest publications on iron rim lesions in multiple sclerosis by our research partners at the Universitätsmedizin Mannheim? The authors around Prof. Achim Gass conclude that iron rim lesions are associated with higher intrathecal immunoglobin G synthesis. Furthermore, CSF-mediated intrathecal smouldering inflammation could explain a CSF-related gradient of tissue damage.

An important imaging biomarker for MS is smouldering lesions. Their AI-aided detection on MR images also makes disease activity visible that cannot be seen with the naked eye.
