Epstein-Barr virus and multiple sclerosis: cellular immune response and cross-reactivity.

Abstract

We investigated T cell immunity to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in multiple sclerosis (MS) and assessed cross-reactivity of the anti-EBV cellular response with brain antigens. We measured the proliferation, cytotoxicity, and number of interferon-γ secreting cells following stimulation with autologous EBV-infected lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCL) in MS patients… (More)
