1. A method of treating neuroimmunologic diseases in a mammal which comprises administering parenterally to said mammal from about 0.25 to about 0.5 mg per kilogram of body
weight per day of a compound selected from 1,4-dihydroxy-5,8-bis[[2-(2-hydroxethylamino)ethyl]amino]-anthraquinone and the pharmacologically acceptable acid addition salts thereof.
2. A method according to claim 1, wherein the compound is 4-dihydroxy-5,8-bis[[2-(2-hydroxyethylamino)ethyl]amino]anthraquinone, dihydrochloride.
3. A method according to claim 1, wherein the compound is administered intraperitoneally.
4. A method according to claim 1, wherein the neuroimmunologic disease is multiple sclerosis.
5. A method according to claim 1, wherein the neuroimmunologic disease is acute disseminated encephalomyelitis.
6. A method of treating neuroimmunologic diseases in mammals which comprises administering parenterally an sufficient amount of 1,4-dihydroxy-5,8-bis[[2-(2-hydroxyethylamino)ethyl]amino]anthraquinone or a pharmacologically acceptable acid addition salt thereof to palliate muscular weakness and paralysis symptomatic of these diseases in said mammals.
7. A method according to claim 6, wherein the neuroimmunologic disease is multiple sclerosis.
