Treatment Guidelines Published for PANDAS/PANS Patients

Treatment guidelines developed by the PANS/PANDAS Research Consortium are now available in the Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology. The guidelines address:

  1. Antimicrobials and secondary prophylaxis
  2. Immunomodulating therapies based on symptom severity
  3. Management of symptoms while simultaneously addressing the instigating processes (which includes infections and inflammatory disease)

Along with JCAP’s 2015 publication of the Consensus Statement and diagnostic guidelines, physicians and medical professionals  have the tools needed to evaluate and treat their PANDAS and PANS patients.

“The three sets of guidelines truly represent ‘best practices’ from across the country.”
