Name: Multiple sclerosis and related disorders
MOG antibody disease is an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (CNS) characterized by the presence of a serological antibody against myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG). MRI is inst...
Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein antibodies (MOG) may be used as a biomarker for diagnosis of many demyelinating diseases. Especially, patients of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), multi...
Serological antibodies against myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) are associated with a relapsing autoimmune demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. Initially identified in the con...
The incidence of pediatric neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD) and myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) antibody-associated disease have not been reported previously. Our aim was to es...
In eight ophthalmic units, the investigator will include all inflammatory optic neuritis (ON) during acute phase and rank them in two groups: 1/ ON with autoantibodies anti-myelin-oligoden...
There is no international consensus regarding how to assess and treat patients with immunoglobulin M (IgM)-anti-myelin-associated-glycoprotein (MAG) monoclonal gammopathy associated periph...
A 48-Week (24-Week Baseline Followed by a 24-Week Treatment) Phase II Pilot Study of the Tolerability and Effect/Efficacy of Subcutaneously Administered Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 (rhIGF) (CEP-151) in Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Patients
The drug rhIGF-1 (CEP-151) has been shown to play a key role preclinically in oligodendrocyte differentiation and survival, as well as, myelin integrity and function. Moreover, in an anima...
Optic neuritis (ON) can remain isolated or reveal a widespread and chronic disease of the central nervous system (CNS), a multiple sclerosis (MS) or, more rarely, a Devic's neuromyelitis o...
GSK249320 is a monoclonal antibody directed against myelin associated glycoprotein (MAG), a protein that inhibits axonal regeneration. GSK249320 acts as a MAG antagonist, and through this...
A glycosylated extracellular myelin protein found on the MYELIN SHEATH of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. It is linked to the cell surface via a GLYCOSYLPHOSPHATIDYLINOSITOL LINKAGE.
A high affinity receptor for myelin-associated inhibitors (MAIs) that include NOGO-A PROTEIN; OLIGODENDROCYTE MYELIN GLYCOPROTEIN; and MYELIN-ASSOCIATED GLYCOPROTEIN. It is expressed primarily by neurons in the brain and OLFACTORY BULBS. During embryonic development, it is expressed in the PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. It localizes to GROWTH CONES and may inhibit neurite outgrowth following SPINAL INJURY.
A transmembrane protein present in the MYELIN SHEATH of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. It is one of the main autoantigens implicated in the pathogenesis of MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.
Proteins found in the myelin sheath. The major proteins of central nervous system myelin include: MYELIN PROTEOLIPID PROTEIN; MYELIN BASIC PROTEINS; and MYELIN-ASSOCIATED GLYCOPROTEIN. The major proteins of peripheral nervous system myelin include: MYELIN BASIC PROTEINS (myelin P1 protein and MYELIN P2 PROTEIN); MYELIN P0 PROTEIN; and MYELIN-ASSOCIATED GLYCOPROTEIN.
A myelin protein found in the periaxonal membrane of both the central and peripheral nervous systems myelin sheaths. It has a structure that is similar to members of the Ig superfamily that participate in cell adhesion. (From Siegel et al., Basic Neurochemistry, 5th ed, p132)
An antibody is a protein produced by the body's immune system when it detects harmful substances, called antigens. Examples of antigens include microorganisms (such as bacteria, fungi, parasites, and viruses) and chemicals. Antibodies may be produc...
Multiple Sclerosis MS
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is the most common disabling neurological condition affecting 100,000 young adults in the UK. The condition results from autoimmune damage to myelin, causing interference in nerve signaling. Symptoms experienced depend on the pa...
