TopicMOG Diseases

Description: In recent years, several paediatric monophasic and multiphasic immune-mediated acquired demyelinating syndromes (ADS) like acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, optic neuritis and transverse myelitis have been shown to be associated with the presence of antibodies targeting myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG-ab), a small yet important component of the myelin sheet. Importantely, this entity here called MOG- associated diseases (MOGAD), is clearly distinct from other diseases such as childhood MS or AQP4 associated NMOSD.
This webinar will therefore primarily address clinical relevant aspects of this y new disease entity such as role of MOG abs in the disease process, which technique to use for MOG-abs testing, spectrum of monophasic/multiphasic diseases associated with MOG antibodies, how to treat children with MOGAD in addition remaining open questions.

Speaker: Professor Kevin Rostasy, EPNS Board Member, Head of Paediatric Neurology, Witten/Herdecke University, Children’s Hospital Datteln. Fields of clinical and research 

Chair: Ass Professor Coriene Catsman-Berrevoets, Chair EPNS Education & Training Committee / Chair C N A and Associate Professor, Erasmus University Hospital-Sophia Children’s Hospital Rotterdam and Juliana Children’s Hospital, the Hague .
