Understanding Transverse Myelitis: TM 101
On December 9, 2014 at 1:00 PM Eastern Time
Experts on the panel joining us are Sanford Siegel, PhD from the TMA, Audrey Ayres, RN, BSN and Katherine Treadaway, LCSW from The University of Texas Southwestern and Children’s Health System in Dallas. Some of the questions to be answered are:
What is Transverse Myelitis? Is it one disease or a syndrome? How is it diagnosed? Why do doctors think it is autoimmune? Is there a biomarker or a blood test? Why is everyone affected differently and yet diagnosed with TM? Why are some people who have the same lesion I have in my spinal cord being diagnosed as having NMO? What is the difference? Will therapies for NMO help a TM patient? Why did my immune system get affected this way? Is there a genetic cause? What do we know about the therapies and how they impact outcome?
