One year MRI may indicate non-response to Interferons

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of brain lesions at the beginning and after one year of treatment with Interferon beta (IFN-b) can help identify patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) who do not respond to IFN-b treatment according to a recent study.

It would be nice to have this sort of indication so that people who aren't responding can at least reclaim a bit of quality of life by going off a therapy that isn't working and avoiding the side effects.
