Newly discovered immune cells play role in inflammatory brain diseases

A team of researchers has succeeded in demonstrating in an animal model that previously entirely unknown types of immune cells are present in the inflamed brain in the course of multiple sclerosis (MS). The discovery was made by means of a new, high-resolution method for analyzing single cells. The method allowed the researchers to create a kind of immune cell atlas for the brain. They also showed how these cells promote the development of the autoimmune disease MS.
