Implicating MicroRNAs as Regulators of Microglia and Astrocyte Responses in Human CNS Inflammatory Disease (P5.018)

CONCLUSIONS: Our results demonstrate that unique miRNAs, implicated in situ within astrocytes and microglia/macrophages of MS lesions, can impact glial responses that may be relevant in mechanisms of injury and repair.Disclosure: Dr. Moore has nothing to disclose.
