Prediction of acute multiple sclerosis relapses by t...

Data-mining and predictive modeling tools were utilized to analyze a gene-expression dataset of 94 non-treated patients; 62 patients with definite MS and 32 patients with clinically isolated syndrome (CIS). The dataset included the expression levels of 10,594 genes and annotated sequences corresponding to 22,215 gene-transcripts that appear in the microarray. We designed a two stage predictor. The first stage predictor was based on the expression level of 10 genes, and predicted the time to n...
