Myelin Sulfatides Modulate T Cell Function During Autoimmune Demyelination (P1.160)

CONCLUSIONS: We have identified a new and very potent mechanism of negative regulation of the T cell function by brain derived sulfatides. These findings contribute to the understanding of the regulation of T cell activity by a local CNS tissue milieu that could provide an insight into immune homeostasis mediated by brain lipids including inhibition of autoimmune demyelination.Disclosure: Dr. Mycko has nothing to disclose.
