Updates on NMO ( Neuromyelitis optica )


NMO and what You might want to Know

A panel of international clinicians supported by GJCF recently updated the diagnostic criteria of NMOSD, which will most likely increase the incidence and prevalence of NMO.  The Mayo Clinic issued a press release.  Click here to see the press release.



As a result of the new diagnostic criteria (advanced from 2006), we interviewed Drs. Dean Wingerchuk and Brian Weinshenker from the Mayo Clinic asking what this will mean for NMO.  Click here to read the interview.
