Multiple Sclerosis: Presence of Lymphatic Capillaries and Lymphoid Tissue in the Brain and Spinal Cord
The persistence of perivascular inflammatory cell cuffs which are rich in plasma cells in some old MS plaques suggests that the putative MS antigen may be continuously expressed in such lesions [1, 2, 4]. This report describes recent findings  concerning the manner in which these cells are organized in plaque perivascular spaces.
