    FEBS Lett 588:4214-22. 2014
    ..We postulate that the gut microbiome serves as the niche where different MS risk factors merge, thereby influencing the disease process. ..
  2. ncbi request reprint Gut, bugs, and brain: role of commensal bacteria in the control of central nervous system disease
    Javier Ochoa-Repáraz
    Department of Neurology, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, NH, USA
    Ann Neurol 69:240-7. 2011
    ..In contrast, other commensal bacteria and their antigenic products, when presented in the correct context, can protect against inflammation within the CNS...
  3. ncbi request reprint A polysaccharide from the human commensal Bacteroides fragilis protects against CNS demyelinating disease
    J Ochoa-Repáraz
    Department of Medicine and Neurology, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, New Hampshire, USA
    Mucosal Immunol 3:487-95. 2010
    ..Protection against EAE was completely abrogated in IL-10-deficient mice. Our results show an important role for a molecule from human commensal bacteria in protecting against EAE and suggest the possibility for protection in MS...
  4. ncbi request reprint Role of gut commensal microflora in the development of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis
    Javier Ochoa-Repáraz
    Department of Medicine, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, NH 03756, USA
    J Immunol 183:6041-50. 2009
    ..This approach may offer a new therapeutic paradigm in the treatment of multiple sclerosis and perhaps other autoimmune conditions...

    Javier Ochoa-Repáraz
    Section of Neurology, Department of Medicine, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, NH 03756, USA
    J Immunol 185:4101-8. 2010
