Plasmapheresis guidelines for NeuroImmune disorders

AAN evidence based reviews don’t add anything new to what we probably know (or should know) or suspect about a treatment or intervention, but it’s always useful to have all data summarized to avoid the whole process of revision by oneself.

In the last issue of Neurology journal we’ll find an evidence-based review about the use of plasmapheresis in neurological disorders. Not any surprise in GBS and CIDP being the diseases with a better level of evidence in plasmapheresis efficacy. Not anything to question, but just highlight a (small) paradox… One of the main mechanisms of action of plasmapheresis is pathogenic antibody removal, then, how can a well known antibody mediated disease like myasthenia have less evidence than those diseases in which cellular immunity is considered more important, such as MS or CIDP?

  1. I have got 1 recommendation for your web page. It appears like right now there are a number of cascading stylesheet troubles when launching a number of web pages inside google chrome as well as opera. It is functioning alright in internet explorer. Perhaps you can double check that.
