Analysis and therapeutic modifications of innate immune regulatory networks in controlling T-cell activation in MS

A09

Innate immune-regulatory networks are crucial for controlling T-cell activation in MS. By combining access to unique samples with cutting-edge technologies, we aim to investigate immune-regulatory networks of peripheral (blood, lymph node) and CNS associated (cerebrospinal fluid) immune compartments to:

    1. understand alterations of these networks during disease initiation and progression in MS
    2. identifying parameters discriminating MS from other neuroinflammatory autoimmune diseases;
    3. exploring the impact of immune-modulating therapies on these networks; and
    4. generating an MS-specific immunological roadmap in distinct compartments as a path for diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic signatures.

One drug – different effects: Metabolism of immune cells influences mode of action and could be an indicator for side effects
Muenster – One person can eat large amounts of pasta and still be a small dress size while another looks at a piece of chocolate and puts on weight: metabolism varies between individuals – and this goes beyond a subjective feeling. What is apparent in the overall organism also applies to each cell: the metabolism […]...more
