Chronic EAE

C57BL/6 mice are immunized with MOG35-55 peptide, to induce adaptive immunity – mediated demyelination and axonal injury, manifesting with acute paralytic disease and chronic neurologic residua. The neuroinflammatory process is characterized by perivascular and meningeal infiltrates of macrophages / microglia and T cells.
