Tests that allow diagnosing and treating pathologies in which the body inflames the brain itself

The Clinical and Experimental Neuroimmunology team at the Institut d'investigacions Biomèdiques August Pi i Sunyer (IDIBAPS) Hospital Clínic, led by Dr. Josep Dalmau, has developed several technologies that make it possible to diagnose, predict and treat patients suffering from autoimmune neurological diseases ( the body itself attacks and inflames the brain). These pathologies manifest with memory deficits, behavioral disturbances, epileptic seizures, movement disturbances, psychosis, and sleep disturbances. These new diagnostic tests have been licensed with the support of the IDIBAPS Knowledge and Technology Transfer Office and the ITEMAS Medical and Health Technologies Platform.
