CONTEXT: Fatigue is one of the most common and disabling symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS); however, there is no medication that has been approved specifically to treat MS-related fatigue. OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate the effect of vitamin D analogue, Alfacalcidol, on MS-related fatigue. DESIGN, SETTINGS, PARTICIPANTS: This was a randomized, double-blind, parallel group, placebo-controlled trial in patients with clinically definite MS by McDonald criteria conducted in a single university-affiliated medical center in Israel...

Alemtuzumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody directed against CD52 to deplete circulating T and B lymphocytes; lymphocyte depletion is followed by a distinctive pattern of T- and B-cell repopulation, changing the balance of the immune system. This review reports the efficacy and safety findings of the phase 2 CAMMS223 trial and the phase 3 CARE-MS I and II trials investigating alemtuzumab for the treatment of active relapsing-remitting MS. Alemtuzumab, administered intravenously, was shown to improve relapse rate versus subcutaneous interferon beta-1a in patients who were treatment-naive (CAMMS223 and CARE-MS I) or had relapsed on prior therapy (CARE-MS II), and to reduce sustained accumulation of disability (CAMMS223 and CARE-MS II)...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to report the frequency and implications of antibodies to myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG-ab) in adults with demyelinating syndromes suspicious for neuromyelitis optica (NMO). METHODS: Samples from 174 patients (48 NMO, 84 longitudinally extensive myelitis (LETM), 39 optic neuritis (ON), and three acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) who presented initially with isolated LETM) were retrospectively examined for AQP4-ab and MOG-ab using cell-based assays...
