BÜHLMANN GanglioCombi at the utmost importance of daily questions such as the differentiation between Multifocal Motor Neuropathies (MMN, treatable) and MMN- mimicking disorders such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS, not treatable). This is the biggest ALS cohort investigated to date and demonstrates that frequency of anti-Ganglioside antibodies is not different from apparently healthy normal blood donors.

Anti-MAG Antibodies have good sensitivity and specificity to detect anti-MAG Neuropathy. Notably, titres of anti-HNK-1 antibodies are related to the disease activity.
