OBJECTIVE To investigate the capacity of blood draining from the central nervous system of patients with acute brain injury to induce cell death, and to determine whether this phenomenon could be a way to induce the production of autoantibodies. METHODS The induction of cell death of several human leukemia cell lines cultured in vitro in the presence of serum collected from the brain or the systemic circulation of patients with acute brain injury was analyzed by flow cytometry after staining… CONTINUE READING
