We studied 34 MS patients who were treated experimentally by thymectomy with or without 1 year of azathioprine therapy. After 3 years, there was no evidence of benefit. Relapsing-remitting patients had done as well or better clinically than controls, and the chronic progressive group did less well statistically than controls.
