49 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) were evaluated on several lines of investigation: clinical examination with disability rating scale, disease activity staging, multimodal evoked potentials and cerebrospinal fluid analysis. 24 patients were monthly re-examined and T-cell subsets were analysed in the peripheral blood. Evoked potentials were re-evaluated every 3 months in 24 patients. All parameters were correlated transversally and longitudinally during a 3 to 18 month follow-up. The results are discussed in view of a methodological approach to a laboratory evaluation of disease evolution in its natural course and during therapeutic trials.
