Multiple sclerosis has a variable phenotypic presentation and subsequent disease course that, although unpredictable at disease onset, is of crucial importance in guiding interventions. Effective and accessible biomarkers are required in order to stratify patients and inform treatment. We examined whether the complement regulator factor H and its Tyr402His(More)
INTRODUCTION Inflammation and complement activation are firmly implicated in the pathology of multiple sclerosis; however, the extent and nature of their involvement in specific pathological processes such as axonal damage, myelin loss and disease progression remains uncertain. This study aims to bring clarity to these questions. RESULTS We describe a(More)
Intraperitoneal injection of human rIL-1 in a dose of 0.5 microgram daily for 5 d, or 1 microgram daily for 3 d, was capable of causing complete regression of immunogenic SA1 sarcoma growing subcutaneously in syngeneic or semisyngeneic mice. Higher doses of IL-1 were not more therapeutic against the SA1 sarcoma, but needed to be given to cause complete(More)
The symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS) are caused by damage to myelin and nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Inflammation is tightly linked with neurodegeneration, and it is the accumulation of neurodegeneration that underlies increasing neurological disability in progressive MS. Determining pathological mechanisms at play in MS grey matter is(More)
