Samples of CSF collected from 20 normal healthy calves were analysed either immediately or after having been stored for 24 hours at 4°C in the presence of 11 per cent autologous serum. There were no significant differences between the total and differential cells counts of the fresh and stored samples, but there was a positive linear correlation between them. There were some morphological changes to the nuclei of the mononuclear cells in the stored samples.

    The presence of interleukin-2 (IL-2) and soluble IL-2 receptors (sIL-2R) in the serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS) has been extensively investigated. These studies, however, have produced conflicting results. The only significant finding...

    The diagnosis of neuroborreliosis is not always straightforward. Intrathecal immunoglobulin (Ig) synthesis against Borrelia antigen may not be detected, at least early in the disease course. Also other neurological and infectious diagnoses have to be considered. We have studied patients with...
