Antibody indices to Measles, Mumps, Varicella Zoster (MRZ) are of diagnostic value in multiple sclerosis (MS). Here, we have investigated, if this panel could be extended to increase diagnostic value. Samples from relapsing-remitting (RR) MS and optic neuritis (ON) patients were tested for reactivity to antigens from Epstein-Barr, Varicella Zoster, Measles, Mumps and Rubella (EMMRZ) viruses. Increased IgG levels in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were found in RRMS patients, along with a significant correlation between serum and CSF. The sensitivity of the EMMRZ panel was increased approximately 40% compared to the MRZ panel, suggesting that the EMMRZ panel may be useful in MS and ON diagnostics.
