Aim: Glycine receptor (GlyR) autoantibodies (Ab) have been recently detected in epilepsy patients. Our study aimed to investigate the peripheral blood distribution of B and T cell subgroups responsible for antibody production to find clues supporting the distinct organization of adaptive immunity in focal epilepsy of unknown cause (FEUC).
