Cerebellar Volume May Predict Disability in Patients With Relapsing-Remitting MS

Key clinical point: In patients with relapsing-remitting MS, cerebellar volume may independently predict clinical disability as measured by the 25-foot walk test.

Major finding: Baseline cerebellar gray matter volume was the only MRI metric that significantly predicted 25-foot walk test results at 36 months (Beta = –0.172).

Study details: A retrospective analysis of MRI data from 838 patients in the phase 3 CombiRx trial.

Disclosures: The researchers had no disclosures.
