Sema4A inhibits the therapeutic effect of IFN-β in EAE

In this study, we investigated whether recombinant Sema4A abrogates the efficacy of IFN-β in mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an animal model of MS. Administration of Sema4A concurrently with IFN-β diminished the efficacy of IFN-β in EAE. These effects of Sema4A were attributed to promote Th1 and Th17 differentiation and to increase adhesive activation of T cells to endothelial cells, even in the presence of IFN-β.Highlights: (Source: Journal of Neuroimmunology)
