Fine mapping and functional analysis of the multiple sclerosis risk gene CD6
(Public Library of Science, 2013)
CD6 has recently been identified and validated as risk gene for multiple sclerosis (MS), based on the association of a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), rs17824933, located in intron 1. CD6 is a cell surface scavenger ...
A Trifluoromethyl Analogue of Celecoxib Exerts Beneficial Effects in Neuroinflammation
(Public Library of Science, 2013-12-11)
Celecoxib is a selective cyclooxygenase-2 (COX2) inhibitor. We have previously shown that celecoxib inhibits experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in COX-2-deficient mice, suggestive for a mode of action involving ...
Oxidative Stress and Proinflammatory Cytokines Contribute to Demyelination and Axonal Damage in a Cerebellar Culture Model of Neuroinflammation
(Public Library of Science, 2013-02-19)
Background: Demyelination and axonal damage are critical processes in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS). Oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory cytokines elicited by inflammation mediates tissue damage. Metho ...
