Abstract

The fact that the hyperacute autoimmune encephalomyelitis is triggered off by the synthetic peptide 73-86 excludes the enzymatically produced guinea pig peptide being adulterated by some other encephalitogenic fragment. The availability of well-defined synthetic autoantigens provides the opportunity of analysis of various immunopathological mechanisms in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis in its usual and hyperacute form.
