BACKGROUND Treatment with tolerogenic dendritic cells (TolDC) is a promising, cell-based strategy to regulate autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS) in an antigen-specific way. This technique involves the use of TolDC from MS patients cultured in the presence of vitamin D(3) (VitD3) and pulsed with myelin peptides to induce a stable(More)
Tolerogenic dendritic cells (tolDC) have been postulated as a potent immunoregulatory therapy for autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS). In a previous study, we demonstrated that the administration of antigen-specific vitamin D3 (vitD3) tolDC in mice showing clinical signs of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE; the animal model of(More)
BACKGROUND In natalizumab-treated relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS) patients, various extended interval dosing strategies are under evaluation to minimize severe treatment-associated side effects, mainly progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy development. Up to now, it has not been presented any approach, even in form of assay design, to determine the(More)
AIM Based on the ability of apoptosis to induce immunological tolerance, liposomes were generated mimicking apoptotic cells, and they arrest autoimmunity in Type 1 diabetes. Our aim was to validate the immunotherapy in other autoimmune disease: multiple sclerosis. MATERIALS & METHODS Phosphatidylserine-rich liposomes were loaded with disease-specific(More)
