Abstract

OBJECTIVE: A recent study using surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight analysis of cerebrospinal fluid identified a 12.5kDa truncated isoform of cystatin C (CysC) as a specific biomarker for multiple sclerosis (MS). METHODS: Surface-enhanced laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight analysis of cerebrospinal fluid samples from 43 MS patients and 46 healthy control subjects. RESULTS: Full-length CysC (13.4kDa) concentration was similar in MS and control samples. The 12.5kDa CysC protein was produced from full-length CysC by N-terminal cleavage during storage at -20 degrees C. INTERPRETATION: The 12.5kDa CysC isoform is a storage-related artifact and is not useful as a diagnostic marker for MS. Ann Neurol 2007;62:193-196.
