    The article presents the author's insights on the results of the study on the presence of oligoclonal immunoglobulin G (IgG) in multiple sclerosis (MS) cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). It is stated that the intrathecal synthesis of IgG is common in MS CSF, but oligoclonal IgG is not. It notes that the...

    Background: An intrathecal polyspecific antibody response is a well known finding in multiple sclerosis. However, little is known about the evolution of intrathecal antibodies over time and their impact on the disease progress. Therefore, we focused in this study on the intrathecal polyspecific...

    Background: Abnormal intrathecal synthesis of IgG, reflected by cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) oligoclonal IgG bands (OBs) and increased IgG index, is much less frequently observed in Japanese multiple sclerosis (MS) cohorts compared with Western cohorts. We aimed to clarify whether genetic and...
