High impact information on Neuromyelitis Optica


Chemical compound and disease context of Neuromyelitis Optica


Anatomical context of Neuromyelitis Optica

  • CONCLUSIONS: These observations suggest that neuromyelitis optica is associated with a major humoral immune response (particularly anti-MOG IgM production) and eosinophil activation present exclusively in CSF [16].
