The authors sought to identify clinical and MRI predictors of outcome in primary progressive multiple sclerosis (PPMS). Clinical and MRI assessments were performed at baseline and 2 and 5 years (clinical only). At baseline, disease duration, expanded disability status scale (EDSS) and brain volume predicted outcome. Adding short-term change variables, baseline EDSS, changes in T2* lesion load and cord area, and number of new lesions were predictive. Clinical and MRI variables predict long-term outcome in PPMS.
