During experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (EAE), both blood-borne macrophages as well as activated, resident microglial cells are considered to be involved in inflammatory reactions in the central nervous system (CNS), resulting in the neurological deficits common to EAE. Both cell types can produce multiple mediators of tissue damage, among which are(More)
We evaluated the clinical effect of several doses of the 21-aminosteroid U74006F in acute experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and compared it with the administration of methylprednisolone (MP). There was no significant change in the clinical course of EAE with the dosages we used, whereas the effect of MP was unquestionably beneficial. Based on(More)
Macrophages constitute a large proportion of the inflammatory cells that infiltrate the central nervous system (CNS) of animals with EAE. Through the production of inflammatory mediators these infiltrating macrophages can contribute to the regulation of the immune reaction within the CNS, that eventually results in neurological deficits associated with EAE.(More)
