Dr. Pittock reviews neuromyelitis optica (NMO), a severe, inflammatory demyelinating disease of the central nervous system that predominantly affects women and disproportionately affects African-Americans and Asians. He discusses how an NMO-specific biomarker can be used to differentiate between multiple sclerosis and NMO.
