Need for biomarkers in MS:
• New therapeutic agents with variable mechanisms of action are available
• The complexity and heterogeneity of MS urges a more differentiated
defining of patients
• Personalized therapy: the information on disease and molecular biomarker profile of a particular patient will contribute to better understanding of their disease, diagnosis and factors that determine response to therapy
