We studied the expression of different lymphocyte and monocyte cellular determinants involved in leukodiapedesis and antigen presentation in 10 patients with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) and multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) with persistent conduction blocks before intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg), immediately after infusion of IVIg and 1 week after infusion. We observed a decrease of T lymphocytes expressing ICAM-1 (CD54) immediately after infusion in 8 out… CONTINUE READING
