To study the immune response against varicella-zoster virus (VZV) in patients with multiple sclerosis before and during fingolimod therapy. The VZV-specific immune response was studied using interferon (IFN)-γ enzyme-linked immunosorbent spot assay, proliferation assays, and upregulation of T-cell activation markers

Sphingolipids comprise a class of bioactive lipids that are involved in a variety of pathophysiologic processes, including cell death and survival. Ceramide and sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) form the center of sphingolipid metabolism and determine proapoptotic and antiapoptotic balance. Findings in animal

Progressive phases of multiple sclerosis are associated with inhibited differentiation of the progenitor cell population that generates the mature oligodendrocytes required for remyelination and disease remission. To identify selective inducers of oligodendrocyte differentiation, we performed an image-based screen for myelin
