There are discrepant findings regarding the risk of HIV-associated dementia (HAD) relating to apolipoprotein E4, suggesting other factors may modulate risk. Furthermore, evidence suggests a changing phenotype of HAD in the era of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART), prompting a need to determine if new disease markers have emerged. In this(More)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is simulated by various forms of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, in which T cells, antibodies, cytokines and complementary factors interact with the central nervous system (CNS) myelin proteins and lead to inflammatory damage. We investigated the role of Fc receptors (FcRs), which link the cellular and humoral branches of(More)
We identified H-2(q) as a susceptible genotype for MOG-induced EAE by systematic screening of a series of H-2 congenic B10 mouse strains. A series of H-2(q)-bearing strains with divergent gene backgrounds were subsequently investigated. DBA/1 mice were highly susceptible to MOG(1-125)- and MOG(79-96)-induced EAE in the absence of pertussis toxin.(More)
