Helping Find Answers through Research

“Thank you for your incredible dedication to children with pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome (PANS). Your partnership continues to be the driving force behind our expanding PANS community, which stands as a guiding light for families at Stanford and around the country. Thanks to you, our team is broadening the understanding of this complex condition and sharing it with more providers to treat more kids…” – Jennifer Frankovich, MD, MS

PANS/PANDAS: Looking Back. Looking Forward.

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the publication of the landmark paper on PANDAS, PPN sat down with Dr. Susan Swedo for a retrospective interview to discuss the research, recognition, and future of PANS/PANDAS. Included is an urgent call to action for the AAP to update their policy to reflect research and clinical observations.

“The AAP urgently needs to recognize PANS and PANDAS. Pediatricians are now desperate for their support to recognize and treat these serious illnesses.“
-Susan Swedo, MD Scientist Emeritus, National Institutes of Health, Chief Science Officer, PANDAS Physicians Network
