MS: Cytokine Fails to Gauge Tx Response

Serum levels of interleukin 17F (IL-17F) were not associated with the response to treatment with interferon beta-1b in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, researchers found.

There were no significant differences in IL-17F concentrations when comparing patients with less versus more disease activity, those with no versus some disease activity, or clinically-defined responders versus nonresponders, according to Hans-Peter Hartung, MD, of Heinrich-Heine-Universität in Düsseldorf, Germany, and colleagues.
