OBJECTIVE Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system with marked heterogeneity in several aspects including pathological processes. Based on infiltrating immune cells, deposition of humoral factors and loss of oligodendrocytes and/or myelin proteins, four lesion patterns have been described. Pattern II is characterized by antibody(More)
Allospecific memory T cells are a barrier against long-term graft survival. Production of multiple cytokines by a single T cell is considered a sign of an active ongoing immune response, the presence of these polyfunctional cells has not been addressed in transplanted patients accordingly to graft outcome. Memory phenotype, based on the expression of CD45RO(More)
Transplant patients with long-term graft survival (LTS) may have developed mechanisms that prevent rejection and allow graft function under low or no immunosuppressive therapy. In murine models, T cell tolerance is associated with alterations in the expression/activation of proteins involved in T cell signaling. These alterations have not been reported in(More)
