Aquaporin-4 antibodies in neuromyelitis optica and longitudinally extensive transverse myelitis.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: There is increasing recognition of antibody-mediated immunotherapy-responsive neurologic diseases and a need for appropriate immunoassays. OBJECTIVES: To develop a clinically applicable quantitative assay to detect the presence of aquaporin-4 (AQP4) antibodies in patients with neuromyelitis optica and to characterize the anti-AQP4 antibodies.
