cells reduce proliferation and IFN-γ production by lymph node cells. 2D2 mice with MOG35-55-induced EAE received intravenous injections of 1 x 106 NSPCIL-10, NSPCs or PBS on day 7 after disease induction. Draining lymph node cells were isolated 7 days after injection and stimulated with MOG35-55 peptide. (a) Proliferation was determined by 3H-thymidine incorporation, and (b) IFN-γ, IL-10 and IL-17 production was determined by ELISA. *P <0.05. NSPCIL-10 versus NSPCs are expressed as mean values with SD from three independent experiments. ConA, concanavalin A; EAE, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis; ELISA, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; IFN, interferon; IL, interleukin; MOG35-55, myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein aa 35–55; NSPC, neural stem/progenitor cell; PBS, phosphate-buffered saline.
