Multiple Sclerosis data


A data.frame with a design and proteomic data.




Data from biobank are analysed a study population of 101 patients, 37 were diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, and 64 without multiple sclerosis. Of the patients without multiple sclerosis, 50 were diagnosed with other neurological disorders and 14 were neurologically healthy patients who had undergone spinal anaesthesia for orthopaedic surgery on the knee or ankle, i.e. neurologically healthy controls. Unless otherwise stated, all the patients without multiple sclerosis were considered as controls for this study. All patients with multiple sclerosis had relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis. The proteome were obtained on cerebrospinal fluid samples from all patients prior medical treatment for multiple sclerosis. It was discovered the patients separated into two clusters, called cluster 1 and cluster 2. This is utilised in the data analysis by considering the data as 2-way factorial design with the two factors: MS and clusters both on two levels.
