Chronic Inflammation in MS Linked to Specific Brain Cells in Study

An interaction between immune cells and glia cells in the brain, mediated by the C1q complement system protein, appears to drive chronic inflammation in multiple sclerosis (MS), new research shows. Inhibiting this protein helped to resolve inflammation in mouse models of MS and in tissue cultures, its researchers found. Understanding these interactions further may pave the way to new treatment approaches, including ones that might be relevant to progressive MS. The study “A lymphocyte–microglia–astrocyte axis in…
