Ne may be added after expressions such as on craint que (it is feared that), avant que (before), etc. to introduce a hypothetical action or one which hasn't happened yet (usually in the subjunctive). This ne explétif doesn't change the meaning of the sentence but is considered more correct in formal writing.
Je mangerai avant qu'il n'arrive. I'll eat before he arrives.
