    Have any Limbolanders had this blood test?

    One of our long time members recently had this blood test (MOG Antibodies) which distinguishes other Inflammatory Demyelinating Diseases (IDD) from MS.

    Just curious if anyone in Limbo has had this particular blood test?

    I found this info from the Mayo Clinic:

    "Mayo Clinic has launched a first-in-the-U.S. clinical test that will help patients who recently have been diagnosed with an inflammatory demyelinating disease (IDD) but may be unsure of the exact disorder.

    Neurologic-related diseases commonly affect the brain, optic nerves and the spinal cord, and this new test can distinguish other IDDs such as neuromyelitis optica, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, optic neuritis, and transverse myelitis from multiple sclerosis (MS)."

    Thanks

      Thanks Marco. I pasted the link again and it seems to be ok now (would you let me know if it doesn't work for you?).

      The link that you provided is a good one also.

      Thank you!
