Temporal dynamics of cerebrospinal fluid anti-aquaporin-4 antibodies in patients with neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders. [JOURNAL ARTICLE] J Neuroimmunol 2011?Feb?10. Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD) are associated with anti-aquaporin-4 autoantibodies (AQP4-IgG).

AQP4 water channels are thought to be the target of autoimmune attack in neuromyelitis optica-spectrum disorders (NMOsd). AQP4 are highly expressed on ventricular ependyma.

Neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD) are associated with anti-aquaporin-4 autoantibodies (AQP4-IgG). Limited data is available on longitudinal cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) AQP4-IgG and their relation to disease activity and inflammatory parameters. AQP4-IgG titers were measured in matched longitudinal serum and CSF samples of 12 patients with NMOSD by an immunofluorescence assay and correlated with clinical parameters

Objectives: the aim of our study was to investigate whether the presence of IgG-NMO antibody is associated with a different pattern of response at visual evoked potentials (VEPs) in patients affected by neuromyelites optica spectrum of disorders (NMOsd) with optic neuritis (ON). Methods: we retrospectively studied clinical, immunological and neurophysiological data from 28 patients affected by NMOsd who presented at least one optic neuritis (16 patients bilateral and 12 unilateral).
