Abstract: Autoimmune T cells play a key role as regulators and effectors of organ-specific autoimmune disease. In multiple sclerosis (MS), activated T cells specific for myelin components produce a plethora of inflammatory cytokines and mediators that contribute to myelin damage. The production of proinflammatory and regulatory cytokines by peripheral blood cells from patients with active and stable MS and healthy controls were examined. The results show that TNF alpha production was somewhat elevated in active MS with no significant increase in the level IFN gamma, whereas in the chronic phase the anti-inflammatory cytokines IL-10 and TGF beta increased, accompanied by a reduction in IFN gamma when stimulated by myelin basic protein.
