Narcolepsy type 1 (NT1) is a severe sleep disorder with strong association to the HLA type DQB1*0602 and increased incidence among children vaccinated with the Influenza A vaccine Pandemrix. Here the authors show that these children develop T and B cell autoimmunity against protein-O-mannosyltransferase 1 via cross-reactivity.
