Using patient CSF/serum samples, Saadeh and coworkers found that the KCSF test was similar in sensitivity and specificity compared with a commonly used test that detects OCBs in CSF.

Researchers concluded that the KCSF test is a valid alternative to the OCB test and a useful supplement to diagnosis.
