New blood tests for predicting worsening symptoms

1 Like

Weird. I remembered reading about heightened levels of neurofilaments some time back - maybe a couple of years ago. I’ve just done a quick search and yes there is several years worth of research papers going back to at least 2019.

Does anyone know why, other than the usual lack of resources, the NHS doesn’t do tests at regular intervals- say every 6 months ?

How will this help? MS progression in PPMS is unstoppable unless you fit the Ocrevus criteria.

That’s it, lack of resources, and Nice recommendations probably. Which come from clinical trials.
