‎"In conclusion, MS definitely shows many of the characteristics associated with vascular inflammatory phenomena, underscoring significant roles of the cerebral vascular system, cerebral vascular inflammation and defects with the blood–brain barrier in active MS. The well documented immune components of MS must interact with the vascular system in introducing and maintaining the cells which drive the inflammatory response and involve the expression of adhesive determinants (under the control of unbalanced cytokines), their penetration and destruction of the BBB and the development of the MS lesion, all of which may be future targets with immunomodulating drugs and regulatory cytokines.
