    Myo-inositol was given orally to nine multiple sclerosis patients and nine healthy control subjects. Pattern reversal evoked potential testing was used to assess its effect. The principal positive wave increased in amplitude, duration and area in a dose-dependent manner in the multiple sclerosis group compared with controls. Cerebrospinal fluid concentrations of myo-inositol in multiple sclerosis and controls were similar. The significance of these observations is discussed in relation to recent discoveries in inositol phospholipid function.
