A molecular view of multiple sclerosis and experimental autoimmune encephalitis: what can we learn from the epitope data?


Vaughan, K; Peters, B; O'Connor, K; Martin, R; Sette, A (2014). A molecular view of multiple sclerosis and experimental autoimmune encephalitis: what can we learn from the epitope data? Journal of Neuroimmunology, 267(1-2):73-85.

Abstract

An analysis to inventory all immune epitope data related to multiple sclerosis (MS) was performed using the Immune Epitope Database (IEDB). The analysis revealed that MS related data represent >20% of all autoimmune data, and that studies of EAE predominate; only 22% of the references describe human data. To date, >5800 unique peptides, analogs, mimotopes, and/or non-protein epitopes have been reported from 861 references, including data describing myelin-containing, as well as non-myelin antigens. This work provides a reference point for the scientific community of the universe of available data for MS-related adaptive immunity in the context of EAE and human disease.
