Antibodies against GD1a, GM1 and related gangliosides are frequently present in patients with the motor variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), and their pathological role in this variant of GBS is now widely accepted. However, two basic issues related to anti-ganglioside antibody-mediated neural injury are not completely resolved: (i) some anti… CONTINUE READING
