Immunocytochemical characterisation of the immune reaction in the central nervous system in multiple sclerosis. Possible role for microglia in lesion growth.
As there is evidence that in multiple sclerosis T-cell activation occurs in the central nervous system rather than outside, the inflammatory lesion may be extended through antigen presentation by cells at the edge of the plaque. In this study we present an immunocytochemical report on CNS tissue from an active case of MS, with an analysis of the distribution of CD4 and CD8 binding T cells and the expression of class I and II MHC determinants in plaques and white matter. Perivascular cuffs of ...Expand abstract
