The aim of this study was to evaluate if cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) oxidative stress biomarkers were related to plasmatic levels and to intrathecal Ig synthesis in 51 patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) or clinically isolated syndrome (CIS). Plasmatic and CSF ferric reducing ability (FRA) showed a significant positive correlation (ρ 0.28, p=0.04), while advanced oxidation protein products (AOPPs) did not. A negative correlation was found between IgG synthesis index and CSF FRA levels. No difference in CSF AOPPs or FRA was observed between patients with and without intrathecal IgM synthesis. Our results indicate that plasmatic and CSF FRA are strictly linked, while CSF oxidative stress biomarkers are not related to intrathecal Ig synthesis.
