Prof. Romain Marignier – Keynote presentation on Differential Diagnosis in MS, NMO-SD and MOGAD

ABSTRACT In the past 20 years, the concept of antibody mediated demyelinating disorders have emerged. These diseases, namely Aquaporin-4 (AQP4) positive neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD) and myelin oligodendrocyte (MOG)- antibody associated disease (MOGAD), share common features with multiple sclerosis, but are fundamentally different in terms of pathophysiology, disease course and treatment. In this lecture we will provide a clinical, biological and imaging description of these two entities, and propose a focus on the features that helps to differentiate in between these...

Dr. Matthijs Oyaert – Lecture on Antibodies in Focus Advancements in Diagnosing NMO and MOG-related CNS Disorders

ABSTRACT Over the last decade, knowledge of antibodies linked to inflammatory disorders of the central nervous system, including forms of neuromyelitis optica (NMO) spectrum disorders, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), optic neuritis and transverse myelitis, has significantly reshaped the landscape of the diagnosis and clinical care. Notably, highly specific antibody assays have become an integral part of clinical decision making and include antibodies directed against the aquaporin-4 and anti–myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG).Various assays have been developed to...
