NMO Autoantibodies
Description To determine the prognostic value of neuromyelitis optica (NMO)-immunoglobulin G (IgG) in patients with recurrent optic neuritis (ON). The aquaporin-4-specific serum autoantibody, NMO-IgG, is a biomarker for NMO and relapsing transverse myelitis. Recurrent ON may herald multiple sclerosis (MS) or NMO, or it may occur as an isolated syndrome. The prognosis and response to therapy differs in each of these contexts.   Source
