Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS) whith unknown etiology and pathogenesis. A local autoimmune process involving activation of autoreactive T cells against CNS protein components is likely crucial in the development of MS lesions. Myelin-reactive T cells are believed to be primed in… CONTINUE READING
