Endogenous opioid peptides play a critical role in determining the progression of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a model for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Treatment of animals with the enkephalin Opioid Growth Factor ([Met5]-enkephalin) or low dose naltrexone (LDN) to alter opioid-receptor interactions attenuates disease symptoms up to 20 days after induction. This study examined the behavior and neuropathology of mice with myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG)-induced EAE after 8 weeks of treatment with OGF or LDN. The incidence of disease for MOG+OGF and MOG+LDN animals was reduced by more than 30% relative to MOG+Vehicle controls, and disease severity in these mice was decreased by 37% and 26%, respectively. Mice in the MOG+OGF and MOG+LDN groups had notably more (42% and 23%, respectively) remissions (defined as a 2 more days of a behavior score of 0) than animals in the MOG+Vehicle group. The number of reactive astrocytes (GFAP), number of spinal cord quadrants that expressed demyelination (absence of Luxol fast blue staining), and number of damaged neurons (SMI-32) were markedly reduced in mice receiving OGF or LDN. These results indicate that OGF or LDN have a long term suppressive effect on the progression of EAE, providing novel therapeutic modalities for the treatment of MS.
