The neuroimmune interface in prion diseases.


Klein, M A; Aguzzi, A (2000). The neuroimmune interface in prion diseases. News in Physiological Sciences, 15(5):250-255.

Abstract

Prion diseases are fatal neurodegenerative disorders of animals and humans. Here we address the role of the immune system in the spread of prions from peripheral sites to the central nervous system and its potential relevance to iatrogenic prion disease.
