Prof. Dr. Hohlfeld

Our institute is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of neuroimmunological diseases, that is, autoimmune disorders of the nervous system. In autoimmune diseases, the immune system “erroneously” attacks the body´s own tissues. By far the most frequent of these diseases is multiple sclerosis.

The Institute of Clinical Neuroimmunology was founded in 1999. It is the first university institute in Germany focusing on neuroimmunological diseases. [Continue]

CD8(+) T-cell pathogenicity in Rasmussen encephalitis elucidated by large-scale T-cell receptor sequencing.

23.05.2016 - We analyzed the immunopathology of Rasmussen encephalitis, a rare pediatric epilepsy, by deep sequencing of T cell receptor chains. We identified public T cell clones, i.e. clones that are shared between different patients. This suggests that antigen-driven T cell expansions are a major cause of the lymphocyte attack against brain tissue. [more...]
