  1. The table includes data for each individual MS patient at inclusion, from the left: patient identity number; aage category; number of years since first MS symptoms; EDSS; MSSS; presence of OCB in the cerebrospinal fluid; bMRI lesion categories; presence of contrast enhancing lesions (MRI); symptoms at onset and family history of MS. Below follows summary statistics with mean (range) for age category, years since first symptoms and MSSS and median (range) labelled with * for EDSS and MRI lesion categories
  2. EDSS expanded disability status scale, MSSS MS severity score, OCB oligoclonal bands, MRI magnetic resonance imaging, N/A not applicable
  3. aAge category: 1 = 25–29 years; 2 = 30–34 years; 3 = 35–39 years; 4 = 40–44 years; 5 = 45–49 years; 6 = 50–54 years
  4. bMRI lesion categories:: 1 = 0–10 lesions; 2 = 10–20 lesions; 3 = more than 20 lesions
