PMID:  7863268     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In children with cryptogenic Lennox-Gastaut syndrome we found a functionally impaired humoral immune response to a primary antigen (haemocyanin), despite signs of a triggered immune system consisting of elevated IgG concentrations. This combination of immunological findings, considered to be the expression of a dysbalanced-triggered as well as functionally impaired-immune system, has also been described in an auto-immune disease like systemic lupus erythaematodes in humans, and in genetically epilepsy-prone rats. The interactions between the immune system and the nervous system in Lennox-Gastaut syndrome will be discussed.
