  • Objective: Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is characterized by immune-mediated peripheral demyelination. Although corticosteroid, IV immunoglobulin (IVIg) and plasma exchange have been established as the most effective therapeutics, subpopulations of patients show little or no response to either of these therapies. In this study, we examined whether particular genetic factors influence the therapeutic responsiveness of patients with CIDP. Methods: One hundred Japanese… CONTINUE READING
