Epitope spreading has been best characterized as an exacerbating factor in CD4(+) T cell-dependent autoimmune disease models and is believed to occur via presentation of antigens liberated by tissue destruction initiated by CD4(+) T cells specific for a primary epitope. The growing evidence that exogenous antigens can also be processed and presented by… (More)
