Recent findings in the animal model for multiple sclerosis (MS), experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, implicate a novel CD4+ T-cell subset (TH17), characterized by the secretion of interleukin-17 (IL-17), in disease pathogenesis. To elucidate its role in MS, brain tissues from patients with MS were compared to controls. We detected expression of IL-17 mRNA (by in situ hybridization) and protein (by immunohistochemistry) in perivascular lymphocytes as well as in astrocytes and… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Involvement of CD8+ T Cells in Multiple Sclerosis
TLDR
Data from studies in the fields of genetics, anatomopathology and immunology strongly suggests that CD8+ T cells may be major effectors in the disease process, and that the development of treatments specifically targeting this subset would be germane.
Role of Th17 cells in the pathogenesis of CNS inflammatory demyelination
T cells in multiple sclerosis and experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis
TLDR
The contribution of Th1, Th17, γδ, CD8+ and regulatory T cells as well as the possible development of new therapeutic approaches for MS based on manipulating these T cell subtypes are reviewed.
Role of CD4+ T Cells in the Pathophysiology of Multiple Sclerosis
T Helper Cells: The Modulators of Inflammation in Multiple Sclerosis
TLDR
The role and interplay of different Th cell subpopulations and their lineage-defining cytokines in modulating the inflammatory responses in MS and the approved as well as the novel therapeutic approaches targeting T lymphocytes in the treatment of the disease are discussed.
Effector T Cells in Multiple Sclerosis.
TLDR
Although the majority of research on MS pathogenesis has centered on the role of effector CD4 T cells, accumulating data suggests that CD8 T cells may play a significant role in the human disease.
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.

Increased IL-23p19 expression in multiple sclerosis lesions and its induction in microglia.
TLDR
Findings on the expression of IL-23p19 in multiple sclerosis lesions may lead to a better understanding of the events culminating in human multiple sclerosis.
Interleukin-17 mRNA expression in blood and CSF mononuclear cells is augmented in multiple sclerosis
TLDR
Increased numbers of IL-17 mRNA expressing MNC in MS are demonstrated with higher numbers in CSF than blood, and with the highest numbers in blood during clinical exacerbations.
IL-17 Plays an Important Role in the Development of Experimental Autoimmune Encephalomyelitis1
TLDR
The development of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), the rodent model of multiple sclerosis, was significantly suppressed in IL-17−/− mice; these animals exhibited delayed onset, reduced maximum severity scores, ameliorated histological changes, and early recovery.
Immunohistological analysis of T lymphocyte subsets in the central nervous system in chronic progressive multiple sclerosis
Interleukin-6 expression in human multiple sclerosis lesions
Multiple sclerosis: distribution of T cell subsets within active chronic lesions.
TLDR
Results indicate that T4+ cells are actively involved in lesion extension and Ia+ cells, in demyelination, in chronic multiple sclerosis.
Immunohistochemical analysis of the cellular infiltrate in multiple sclerosis lesions
TLDR
The results suggest that the cellular infiltrate in multiple sclerosis consists predominantly of T cells and macrophages and that there is an overrepresentation of T8+ cells compared with T4+ cells.
Myelin-specific regulatory T cells accumulate in the CNS but fail to control autoimmune inflammation
TLDR
The data suggest that in order for CD4+Foxp3+ T-reg to effectively control autoimmune reactions in the target organ, it may also be necessary to control tissue inflammation.
