Nomograms to predict the risk for multiple sclerosis diagnosis in patients with acute optic neuritis

Takeaway

  • Levels of routine and candidate biomarkers from the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can predict whether patients with acute optic neuritis will subsequently develop multiple sclerosis (MS) or remain with isolated optic neuritis (ION) during follow-up.

Why this matters ?

  • Predicting the risk of multiple sclerosis after an acute optic neuritis event can lead to the early treatment of MS.
