Abstract

Experimental allergic encephalomyelitis is a typical example of auto-immune disease. From its study, there has been obtained information on the chemical composition and role of the various antigens of the central and peripheral nervous systems. However, there is no strict parallel between the experimental data and the clinical findings in polyradiculoneuritis nor in multiple sclerosis. In the latter disease, in particular, some external factor, probably a virus, intervenes long before the first clinical signs which are perhaps responsible for the immune disturbances noted in this disease. During myasthenia and polymyositis, numerous immuno-pathologic studies lead one to attribute an increasing importance to thymus-dependent lymphocytes and thus, manifestations of delayed hypersensitivity. The study of the mechanisms of these diseases shows that they are numerous. This will perhaps permit us to shed nek light on the physiopathology of other diseases. © 1974 Expansion Scientifique Française.
