Abstract

Strain 13 guinea pigs were immunized with galactocerebroside, asialo-G M1 (G A1 ) or G M4 ganglioside in association with myelin basic protein (MBP) in complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) to produce experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). The clinical and pathological features, serum antibodies, and lipid compositions of affected brains and spinal cords were compared with those of guinea pigs immunized with MBP, in CFA, alone. Perivascular demyelination was seen in brains from all guinea pigs immunized with G A1 /MBP. The incidence and degree of demyelination in this group were significantly higher than in the group immunized with only MBP. The onset of EAE was slightly, but significantly, retarded in groups of animals immunized with G M4 /MBP and there was no detectable demyelination. Otherwise, no significant differences were detected between groups. Augmentation of EAE by myelin glycolipids may provide some important clues in understanding the mechanism of demyelinating diseases.
