2018 marks 20 years since the publishing of the landmark paper, Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated With Streptococcal Infections: Clinical Description of the First 50 Cases.
WE HAVE MADE GREAT STRIDES OVER THE LAST TWO DECADES.
More children are being diagnosed in the early stages of these immune-mediated brain diseases and receiving treatment that leads to recovery.
BUT THIS IS NOT ENOUGH.
Even with 20 years of research, modifying criteria, publishing consensus driven evaluation and management recommendations, numerous children are still suffering. Most doctors are still unaware of the symptoms and treatment guidelines for PANS and PANDAS. As a result, lives are being devastated.
WE NEED TO DO MORE.
Join PANDAS Physicians Network’s mission to find a cure for PANDAS/PANS within this generation.
