Abstract: Multiple sclerosis (MS) and the Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) are tissue-specific inflammatory diseases of the central and the peripheral nervous system, respectively. A contemporary analysis infers that these are complex autoimmune disorders. Issues remaining to be solved are the factors determining susceptibility and the extreme variability in severity displayed by these diseases. The present study examines whether this variability is related to a basal function of the innate immune defence, r... more
