Abstract

To elucidate the biomarkers related to survival in multiple system atrophy(MSA), we analyzed the predictability of retrospectively collected blood markers for survival in 650 probable MSA. High absolute neutrophil count, red-cell distribution width, C-reactive protein, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and low hemoglobin, protein, albumin, and creatinine were correlated with higher mortality in MSA. Systemic alteration in inflammation and nutritional status in the early stage are associated with higher mortality in MSA.
