Abstract

Multiple sclerosis is considered to be an autoimmune disease that results from aberrant immune responses to central nervous system antigens. T cells are considered to be crucial in orchestrating an immunopathological cascade that culminates in damage to the myelin sheath, oligodendrocytes and axons.
