Abstract

Mononuclear cells were isolated from the spinal cords of 13 Lewis rats with clinical EAE induced by immunization with MBP in complete Freund's adjuvant. MBP-reactive lymphocytes were recovered from nine of these 13 SC-MNC populations by in vitro culture with MBP, followed by propagation of responding lymphocytes in IL 2-containing medium. T cell subset phenotype determination indicated a predominance of helper phenotype T cells in each of the two cultures examined. Clinical EAE was induced in naive Lewis rats by adoptive transfer of MBP-reactive lymphocytes recovered from three of these cultures.
