Conversations between lymphocytes and the CNS: inflammation and models of multiple sclerosis
The immune system is charged with distinguishing between self and non-self to respond appropriately to infectious challenges. Over the last decade we've learned much about the development of these selective surveillance mechanisms. They combine a unique understanding of immunology, cell biology and biochemistry. We have also learned much about the failure of appropriate surveillance in the development and pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
