FTY720 is a prodrug for FTY-phosphate, an agonist at four of the five known receptors for sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P). We show that administration of either FTY720 or FTY-P to SJL mice with established relapsing-remitting experimental autoimmune encephalitis (EAE) results in a rapid and sustained improvement in their clinical status, and a reversal of changes in expression of mRNAs encoding some myelin proteins and inflammatory mediators. EAE produced by adoptively transferring lymph node… CONTINUE READING
