Short summary
Aging Western societies are facing an increasing prevalence of chronic autoimmune-mediated inflammatory disorders (AIMIDs). Animal models have a crucial role in the preclinical research of disease mechanisms and therapy development. Multiple sclerosis is an AIMID specifically affecting the brain and spinal cord. We discuss here a unique MS model in common marmoset monkeys, which has provided novel insights into the disease process as well as into the mechanism of action of new therapies.
