Welcome at the Institute of Clinical Neuroimmunology

Our institute is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of neuroimmunological diseases, that is, autoimmune disorders of the nervous system. In autoimmune diseases, the immune system “erroneously” attacks the body´s own tissues. By far the most frequent of these diseases is multiple sclerosis.

The Institute of Clinical Neuroimmunology was founded in 1999. It is the first university institute in Germany focusing on neuroimmunological diseases. [Continue]

Pathogenicity of human antibodies against myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein

01.10.2018 - Autoantibodies against myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) can be detected in the blood of a proportion of patients with inflammatory demyelinating diseases of the CNS. We affinity-purified MOG-Abs from the blood of two patients. The Abs recognized different epitopes on MOG. The anti-MOG Abs... [more...]
