Endogenous IFN-β signaling exerts anti-inflammatory actions in experimentally induced focal cerebral ischemia.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Interferon (IFN)-β exerts anti-inflammatory effects, coupled to remarkable neurological improvements in multiple sclerosis, a neuroinflammatory condition of the central nervous system. Analogously, it has been hypothesized that IFN-β, by limiting inflammation, decreases neuronal death and promotes functional recovery after stroke. However, the core actions of endogenous IFN-β signaling in stroke are unclear.
