Suppression of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis by oral administration of myelin basic protein. III. Synergistic effect of lipopolysaccharide.


Oral administration of myelin basic protein (MBP) suppresses experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in Lewis rats immunized with MBP in Freund's adjuvant. The immunomodulator bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) when given orally in conjunction with MBP enhances the protective effects of MBP feeding in EAE. This synergy was achieved only following… (More)
