Dietary Saturated Fatty Acids Promote Differentiation of Th1 and Th17 Cells And Aggravate Neuroinflammation (P6.149)

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that dietary saturated fatty acids may directly influence neuroinflammation in a p38 dependent manner. These data corroborate the hypothesis that nutritional habits associated with a “Western” lifestyle may contribute to MS prevalence and severity.Disclosure: Dr. Linker has received personal compensation for activities with Bayer Pharmaceutical Corp., Biogen Idec, Novartis, Merck Serono, Teva Neuroscience as a speaker, with Biogen Idec, Novartis, and Merck Serono as a board member.
