Circulating natural killer cells but not cytotoxic T lymphocytes are reduced in patients with active relapsing multiple sclerosis and little clinical disability as compared to controls.

Abstract

Triple antibody flow cytometry was used to compare the populations of CD56+ effector cells in the peripheral circulation of 29 patients with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS) and little disability who were exacerbation-free for over 2 months and 29 healthy control subjects. Populations were characterized by two panels of antibodies (CD8, CD16, CD56 and CD3… (More)
