Emerging Role of Follicular T Helper Cells in Multiple Sclerosis and Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis
TLDR
The curation of this literature has identified that central nervous system (CNS) infiltrating TFH cells act with TH17 cell to contribute to an inflammatory B cell response in neuroinflammation, demonstrating thatTFH cells and their products are promising targets for therapies in MS.
Increased ex vivo antigen presentation profile of B cells in multiple sclerosis
TLDR
These data suggest that the activation profile of B cells is increased in MS, however, the perception of the danger signal by B lymphocytes and monocytes does not seem to be different in MS patients as compared to control subjects.
The frequency of follicular T helper cells differs in acute and chronic neuroinflammation
TLDR
This study investigated the Tfh cell distribution during disease progression in disease relevant organs in three different EAE models and identified significantly higher levels of T fh cells in the dura mater than in the CNS both in C57BL/6 and in SJL/J mice.
Targeting Antigen-Presenting Cells in Multiple Sclerosis Treatment
TLDR
In this review, the role of antigen-presenting cells (APC) in MS development as well as the novel therapeutic options targeting those cells in MS are presented.
CD40-Mediated NF-κB Activation in B Cells Is Increased in Multiple Sclerosis and Modulated by Therapeutics
TLDR
It is found that memory and naive B cells from RRMS and secondary progressive MS patients exhibited a significantly elevated level of phosphorylated NF-κB (p-P65) following CD40 stimulation compared with healthy donor controls, suggesting that reducing CD40-mediated p-P 65 induction may be a general mechanism by which some current therapies modulate MS disease.
EBV Infection Empowers Human B Cells for Autoimmunity: Role of Autophagy and Relevance to Multiple Sclerosis
TLDR
EBV infection switches MOG processing in B cells from destructive to productive and facilitates cross-presentation of disease-relevant epitopes to CD8+ T cells.
Developing Connections among B Lymphocytes and Deregulated Pathways in Autoimmunity
TLDR
Following the tradition established in 2001, the conference was a forum where basic immunologists and their clinically trained colleagues met to discuss hot topics of autoimmunity research and brought considerable excitement to the conference in the refreshingly beautiful and elegant landscape of Sun Moon Lake and its indescribable charm.
The direct deleterious effect of Th17 cells in the nervous system compartment in multiple sclerosis and experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis: one possible link between neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration
TLDR
Due to their role in preventing remyelination and direct neurotoxic effect, Th17 cells might stand for an important connection between neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in a devastating disease like MS.

Antibody-independent B cell effector functions in relapsing remitting Multiple Sclerosis: Clues to increased inflammatory and reduced regulatory B cell capacity
TLDR
The potential implications of antibody-independent B cell effector functions that could contribute to autoimmunity with particular focus on antigen presentation, cytokine secretion, and stimulation of T cell subsets are discussed.
Rituximab Therapy Reduces Organ-Specific T Cell Responses and Ameliorates Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis
TLDR
A role for B cells as a therapeutic cellular target in regulating encephalitogenic T cell responses in specific tissues is indicated in multiple sclerosis in mice that express human CD20.
Phenotypical and functional characterization of T helper 17 cells in multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
The frequency and phenotype of Th17 cells in the cerebrospinal fluid and peripheral blood of multiple sclerosis patients are analysed to suggest that Th 17 cells display a high pathogenic potential and may constitute a relevant pathogenic subset in multiple sclerosis.
T-bet is essential for encephalitogenicity of both Th1 and Th17 cells
TLDR
It is suggested that encephalitogenicity of myelin-specific T cells appears to be mediated by a pathway dependent on T-bet and not necessarily pathway-specific end products, such as interferon γ and IL-17.
Autoreactive T lymphocytes in multiple sclerosis determined by antigen-induced secretion of interferon-gamma.
TLDR
It is concluded that T cells reactive with myelin autoantigens are strongly increased in MS and this approach to detect them could allow definition of immunodominant T cell epitopes in individual MS patients, and thereby enable further development towards specific immunotherapy.
Memory B cells from a subset of treatment‐naïve relapsing‐remitting multiple sclerosis patients elicit CD4+ T‐cell proliferation and IFN‐γ production in response to myelin basic protein and myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein
TLDR
The results demonstrate for the first time that the memory B‐cell pool in RRMS harbors neuro‐Ag specific B cells that can activate T cells.
Interleukin-17 production in central nervous system-infiltrating T cells and glial cells is associated with active disease in multiple sclerosis.
TLDR
Observations suggest an enrichment of both IL-17+CD4+ and CD8+ T cells in active MS lesions as well as an important role for IL- 17 in MS pathogenesis, with some remarkable differences from the experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis model.
Phenotypic and functional features of human Th17 cells
TLDR
The demonstration of selective markers for human Th17 cells may help to understand their pathogenic role, and the identification of a subset of cells sharing features of both Th1 and Th17 may raise new issues concerning developmental and/or functional relationships between Th17 and Th1.
