Methods: Clinical observational cross-sectional study includes 81 patients diagnosed with clinically definite MS with RR disease course. The total group of respondents is composed of subgroups: 50 patients are receiving the immunomodulatory therapy IFNβ1b (Betaferon) from the moment of diagnosis and 31 patients did not, until the beginning of the study, receive any therapy that modifies the natural course of the disease. In all subjects we determined: the presence of insulin resistance (HOMA index); glucose intolerance using an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT); th...e APOE gene polymorphisms; cognitive status using four neuropsychological tests taken from a neuropsychological battery, "The Brief Repeatable Battery of Neuropsychological Tests", which examined the most frequently impaired cognitive domains. Results: The presence of cognitive impairment was 39.51.The most common is episodic memory impairment, in 67% of patients. Significantly higher incidence of patients with poor achievements in the visual memory test was in the group with an impaired glucose tolerance. (80% vs. 54.10%, p = 0.04).

The study contributes to the early detection and better understanding of cognitive impairment in MS which is present from the earliest stages of the disease. This is important in predicting the course of the disease,the degree of functional disability and represents an important factor in determining the therapy that alters the natural course of the disease.
