Twenty-five patients affected by remittent form of multiple sclerosis (MS) were treated with methisoprinol for a period of 2 years. The clinical parameters, recorded during a 2-year observation period preceding onset of therapy, were compared with the analogous measures recorded during treatment. Treatment was associated with significant favourable changes. In fact, there were observed: a reduction in mean annual relapse rate for 22 of 25 patients; an improvement in the clinical status as demonstrated by the reduction of the Kurtzke Disability Status Scale values obtained in 14 of 25 patients; a reduction in the mean period of standard corticosteroid therapy.
