    We studied serum immunoglobulins in 54 patients with chronic viral hepatitis. The majority had hyper-globulinemia, with immunoglubulin G (IgG) being elevated the most. High resolution protein electrophoresis revealed the presence of oligoclonal bands within the γ-globulin region of the...

    Background: Given the presumed key role for autoreactive lymphocytes in multiple sclerosis (MS), treatment strategies have been developed to ablate lymphocyte activity. Intrathecal lymphocyte activation can be measured by CSF-soluble(s)CD27. Objective: To determine the effect of maximum...

    The purpose of this study was to verify the actual involvement of Chlamydia pneumoniae in multiple sclerosis (MS) by the evaluation of its specific intrathecal humoral immune response in MS. We measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technique cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum...

    Introduction: This study represents a new approach to the extended analysis of correlation of findings of oligoclonal bands on gels and the level of intrathecal synthesis of immunoglobulin G in the central nervous system. Previous studies have shown that there is no correlation at this level as...

    CXCL13, a B-cell chemokine, has been proposed as a biomarker in a variety of conditions, some of which can mimic multiple sclerosis and can have very high levels. In this case-control study, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) CXCL13 was elevated in multiple sclerosis, neuromyelitis optica and other...
