This is the first description of acute demyelinating experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) induced in rats by myelin basic protein (BP)-specific T lymphocytes without the administration of demyelinating antibodies. BP-specific T cell lines were selected from inbred Buffalo-strain rats (Rt-1b) following techniques used to develop similar lines from… CONTINUE READING
