Rapid diagnosis of immuno-neurological disease with low-abundance inflammatory markers

In this video, Prof. Thomas Skripuletz, Senior Neurologist at Hannover Medical School, discusses his work improving the diagnostics for immune-mediated neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis. The detection of oligoclonal bands is a sensitive and traditional method for identifying inflammation in patients. However, this method often requires an expert in the lab. Skripuletz explains how the measurement of kappa free light chains provides a novel and simple alternative for the rapid diagnosis of immune-mediated neuropathies and inflammatory neurological disorders.
