The article presents data on the chief mechanisms of human cell apoptosis, on the role of nitric oxide (NO) in modulation of the above mechanisms in cells of normal tissues and organs and in multiple sclerosis (MS) as well.

Aspects are analyzed of NO action in the processes of apoptosis in MS.

Corticosteroid pulse therapy is recognized as a powerful inducer of T-lymphocyte apoptosis in the condition under consideration.
