Multiple sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory, demyelinating disease of the central nervous system (CNS). MS is thought to be initiated by CNS-infiltrating self-reactive T cells that recognize myelin antigens. Damage of target tissue, however, is mediated by other components of the immune system, such as antibodies, complement, CD8+ T cells, and factors produced by innate immune cells.

Sample preparation

Dissociation of tissue samples from the central nervous system as well as peripheral lymphoid organs is simple and can be standardized with the gentleMACS Dissociators and our various tissue dissociation kits, e.g., the Neural Tissue Dissociation Kits. The use of Myelin Removal Beads II and Pre-Separation Filters greatly improves sample quality for downstream applications.

Cell separation

Detailed studies on immune cells involved in MS development and progression require cell populations of high purity. Miltenyi Biotec provides reagents for the isolation of all relevant cell types, e.g., T cells, B cells, and CNS-resident microglia.

Cell analysis

In-depth analysis of immune cells involved in MS, such as the inflammatory CD4+IFN-γ+ or CD4+IL-17+ T cells, is easily achieved with Miltenyi Biotec’s fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies. The unique Cytokine Secretion Assay Technology allows the isolation and analysis of viable cytokine-secreting cells.
