Recently, a major leap forward was made in the understanding of how T-cells are activated. These cells play a critical role in the immune attack on the nervous system that causes Multiple Sclerosis.
Study finds surprising similarities in the way immune system defenders bind to disease-causing invaders.
“Stanford School of Medicine researchers, working with scientists at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory, have made discoveries about the ways in which T cell receptors (shown in bright red) recognize invaders in the body.
A study led by researchers at Stanford’s School of Medicine reveals how T cells, the immune system’s foot soldiers, respond to an enormous number of potential health threats.”
