Experiments on an innovative diagnostic test which provides monitoring for multiple sclerosis have produced positive results. The test, which was developed by a group of Florence based researchers, is called "MS Pepkit" and is based on a substance, glycopeptis CSF114, which shows the presence of antibodies linked to the course of the disease. The results of the experiments will be presented tomorrow, at the symposium "Future directions in multiple sclerosis" by two of the researchers on the team, Anna Maria Papini and Francesco Lolli.
