11 pts. = 11 patients drawn from the original patient population who returned for additional EDSS assessment during 2010–2011; 6 pts. = 6 patients with 2 examinations during 2009–2011; 33 pts.= 33 patients with only 1 EPs and EDSS assessment during 2009–20011. Med = median; Pr. = probability of worsening; n/ms = number of patients/ number of patients misclassified by the model; F_EP score = EP score at first neurological evaluation; F_EDSS= EDSS at first neurological evaluation.
