Autoimmune encephalitis occurs when a person’s own antibodies
or immune cells attack the brain. Antibodies may target specific proteins or receptors
in the brain, which determine the type of autoimmune encephalitis.
We strive to support you in the diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune encephalitis, successful patient care requires a collaborative, interdisciplinary approach.
We support and facilitate scientific research into causes of autoimmune encephalitis and its treatment, leading to more targeted therapies.
We are excited to share the June edition of our AEA newsletter, featuring Q&A with Dr. Mooneyham about the use of psychiatric medications in AE, an in-depth look at our new website, an inspiring AE journey, and much more!
