Several clinical, immunological and radiological biomarkers have been shown to predict the disease course of multiple sclerosis (MS).One potential serum marker is the gMS-Classifier1, which is composed of IgM anti-Glc antibodies, namely anti-GAGA 2,3,4 and 6. Previous work demonstrated that the gMS-Classifier1 could not predict early conversion to clinically definite MS in a cohort of clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) patients, but predicted Expanded Disability Status Scale (EDSS) progression. Significance, however, was dependent on covariates, and confirmation in an independent study was required. The aim of this study was to test if the gMS-Classifier1 could predict early disability progression in a large multicenter cohort of patients with CIS or relapse-onset MS.
