Familial effects of the clinical course of MS

Hensieck AE et al. Neurology 2007; 68:376-383. There is concordance among family members for age at onset, NOT for severity. There are no apparent transmission patterns nor evidence for genetic loading. However, familial factors do affect the probability of an eventual progressive course (either PPMS or after RRMS, SPMS).
