Chances to detect antibody in blood before the appearance of multiple Sclerosis symptoms

According to the studies released at the American Academy of Neurology’s 66TH Annual Award meeting in Philadelphia on April 26 to May3, 2014, the people who have multiple sclerosis are tend to have antibody in blood which is the onset of the symptoms and the disease. According to the author Viola Biberacher, MD, With Technical University in Munich, Germany, “If our results can be replicated in larger populations, our findings may help to detect MS earlier in a subgroup of patients.” From the study of 16 healthy people who donated their blood, it was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when compared to the other 16 donors of the same sex and age who do not have MS. In this point, the scientists observed for a certain antibody to KIR4.1. And the samples collected in between the 2 and 9 months before the initial symptoms of multiple Sclerosis came into view in the people. Later, the healthy controls tested it negative for the KIR4.1 antibody from which 7 people got tested negative and 2 showed the border line and the remaining 7 were negative in test.
