ADVISORY COMMITTEES

Public Health Advisory Committees for PANDAS and PANS are done through a collaboration of health care and community-based partnerships. The list of committees are organized by state.

Research: Nature and Science of Sleep

Artificial Neural Networks Analysis of polysomnographic and clinical features in PANS: from sleep alteration to “Brain Fog”

“Polysomnography was abnormal in 73.9% of our patients which is consistent with the finding of PANS consortium reporting sleep alterations in about 80% of patients with PANS both at the onset of symptoms and after the acute phase.”

Research: Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology

Evaluation of Intravenous Immunoglobulin in PANS

“In this population of PANS subjects, all psychometric endpoints studied exhibited statistically significant decreases following six infusions of IVIG…The durability of response is also noteworthy.”

CHANGE THE COURSE OF MENTAL ILLNESS

PPN is dedicated to impacting the research and education of PANS/PANDAS. Your donation to PPN will give physicians and medical professionals the resources they need to diagnose PANS/PANDAS in the early stages of the illness and promptly begin treatment. We are determined to help those suffering now while simultaneously working to fund research that will lead to a cure. Your support makes this possible. Thank you!
