Effects of preventive and therapeutic application of IVIG on clinical signs of EAE. EAE was induced by immunization of SJL/J mice with PLP (p)139–151 as described in Materials and Methods. Mice were treated i.p. in a preventive manner from day 1 to day 10 (a) or in a therapeutic manner from day 11 to day 19 (b) with 10 mg/day IVIG. PBS treatment served as vehicle control. Treatment periods are indicated by the horizontal bar. Clinical disease scores were recorded daily. Data are presented as daily averages ± SEM of disease scores from 5 mice per treatment group. Significance is indicated by the horizontal bar above the curves. indicates a significance of (Mann Whitney analysis).
