Characterization of immune response to neurofilament light in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.
Autoimmunity to neuronal proteins occurs in several neurological syndromes, where cellular and humoral responses are directed to surface as well as intracellular antigens. Similar to myelin autoimmunity, pathogenic immune ...
Validation of an environmentally-friendly and affordable cardboard 9-hole peg test.
BACKGROUND: In multiple sclerosis (MS) upper limb neurological impairments, are an important driver of disability and handicap. The gold standard for assessing upper limb function is the 9-hole peg test (9HPT). One ...
Axonal loss in the multiple sclerosis spinal cord revisited.
Preventing chronic disease deterioration is an unmet need in people with multiple sclerosis, where axonal loss is considered a key substrate of disability. Clinically, chronic multiple sclerosis often presents as progressive ...
Cladribine treatment of multiple sclerosis is associated with depletion of memory B cells.
BACKGROUND: The mechanism of action of oral cladribine, recently licensed for relapsing multiple sclerosis, is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether cladribine depletes memory B cells consistent with our recent hypothesis ...
Neurofilament light as an immune target for pathogenic antibodies.
Antibodies to neuronal antigens are associated with many neurological diseases including paraneoplastic neurological disorders, epilepsy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and multiple sclerosis. Immunization with neuronal ...
