Elevated antibody reactivity to measles virus Ncore protein among patients with multiple sclerosis and their healthy siblings with intrathecal oligoclonal immunoglobulin G production
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2014

Patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and their healthy siblings with the MS oligoclonal bands (OCB) trait, (a hyperimmune condition in form of two or more CSF enriched OCBs) harbor in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum elevated immunoglobulin G (IgG) titers against measles crude whole-cell antigen. The underlying mechanism resulting in the increased IgG antibody reactivity to measles remains unclear. The response may represent specific IgG reactivity to measles antigens or unspecific auto-antibodies targeting cellular components in the crude whole virus antigens commonly used in detection assays.
