Webinar: Anti-MAG Peripheral Neuropathy: An Overview with Richard Lewis, MD
Anti-MAG peripheral neuropathy (Immunoglobulin M(IgM) Anti-Myelin Associated Glycoprotein Peripheral Neuropathy) is a rare autoimmune variety of peripheral neuropathy. In this type of PN, a person’s own immune system attacks cells that are specific in maintaining a healthy peripheral nervous system. As these cells are destroyed by antibodies, they lose function and create problems in both sensory and motor function.
The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy is pleased to welcome Richard Lewis, MD, from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to present on this rare form of neuropathy. In this program, Dr. Lewis will provide a scientific overview of anti-MAG PN, from diagnosis to treatment and everything in between.
Webinar held live June 27, 2022.
