Abstract

The cells responsible for producing the elevated measles response in HR reside in a T cell subset with helper-inducer phenotype and function. These cells are presumably responsible for the clonal expansion of measles-specific T cell populations in the MS HR. The mechanisms involved may have potential relevance to the understandng of immunoregulatory abnormalities in MS.
