If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Immune cells PROTECT against MS

Postby cheerleader » Thu Aug 16, 2012 12:02 pm

Immune cells called dendritic cells, which were previously thought to contribute to the onset and development of multiple sclerosis, actually protect against the disease in a mouse model, according to a study published by Cell Press in the August issue of the journal Immunity. These new insights change our fundamental understanding of the origins of multiple sclerosis and could lead to the development of more effective treatments for the disease.

This is what they used to say, way back in 2007....
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is considered to be a predominantly T-cell-mediated disease, and emerging evidence indicates that dendritic cells have a critical role in the initiation and progression of this debilitating condition

But now, Dendritic cells are good.

I suppose this might (partially) explain why beta interferon fails to stop MS disease progression, since it causes dendritic cell aptosis.
