  • Suppression of autoimmunity via microbial mimics of altered peptide ligands MOLECULAR MIMICRY: INFECTION-INDUCING AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE Steinman, L., Utz, P. J., Robinson, W. H. 2005; 296: 55-63

    Abstract:

    Molecular mimics of self-antigens can behave as altered peptide ligands and serve to ameliorate autoimmune disease. Analysis of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis with proteomic autoantibody microarrays reveals that there might exist a wide variety of microbes with features that mimic self-epitopes. Autoimmunity could therefore be modulated via microbial immunity, which may account for relapse and remission of ongoing disease.
