This post was originally published on this siteThough known mainly for killing tumor and virally infected cells, a T-cell subtype may restrain immune responses and be protective in autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS), according to new research. The involvement of different subtypes of immune T-cells has been shown in MS patients and in the experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) mouse model of the disease. Supporting the findings in mice, analysis in cells isolated from MS patients also showed a marked boost in blood levels of suppressive T-cells and, to a lesser extent, of inflammatory CD4+ T-cells. The team has plans to assess if these suppressor CD8 T-cells also are involved in other autoimmune diseases, including celiac disease.
