Abstract

Clinical data of 233 patients (202 definite and 31 probable MS) have been examined in relation to the following prognostic indicators: sex, age at onset, poussè frequency, interval between the first two relapses, initial symptomatology. Regression analysis technique and covariate analysis have been used versus the latest Expanded Disability Status Scale of each patients. Onset at younger age and a longer interval between the first two episodes have resulted statistically significant for a more favourable prognosis. The shift from a remitting toward a progressive course appears to happen within the first five years in 60\% of the cases.
