Inhibition of the myelin-associated neurite outgrowth inhibitor Nogo-A has been found to be beneficial in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), but there are little data on its expression dynamics during the disease course. We analyzed Nogo-A mRNA and protein during the course of EAE in 27 C57BL/6 mice and in 8 controls. Histopathologic and(More)
Exogenous transplanted neural precursor cells (NPCs) exhibit miscellaneous immune-modulatory effects in models of autoimmune demyelination. However, the regional interactions of NPCs with the host brain tissue in remissive inflammatory events have not been adequately studied. In this study we used the chronic MOG-induced Experimental Autoimmune(More)
Extensive experimental studies indicate that autologous bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) are able to ameliorate experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) and potentially multiple sclerosis. However, the impact that the inflammatory environment present in EAE may have on the biological properties of BMSCs expanded in vitro for transplantation(More)
