By Serena GordonHealthDay ReporterTHURSDAY, May 21, 2020 (HealthDay News) — A new blood test might help doctors predict whether someone’s multiple sclerosis may soon get worse.
The test looks for a substance called neurofilament light chain.
It’s a nerve protein that can be detected when nerve cells die.
People with higher levels of it were more likely to have worsening MS effects within the next year.
His study of the neurofilament light chain blood test included almost 4,400 people with multiple sclerosis and a control group of more than 1,000 people without it.
