Loss of Suppressor-inducer T-Cells in Chronic-progressive Multiple Sclerosis: Preliminary Results
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) has long been postulated to be an autoimmune disease of the Central Nervous System with a possible viral origin and with relevant abnormalities in immunoregulation (1). The most important immunological finding in MS is a defective T-suppressor activity which is proven by functional assays as by phenotypic characterization (2).
