Patients who test positive for MOG antibody have an increased possibility of ADEM episodes
Mayo researchers found a direct correlation between a specific antibody, myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG), and an increased risk of recurring attacks of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM).

Multicenter effort aims to build a nuanced model of Alzheimer's disease
With funding from the National Institutes of Health M2OVE-AD Consortium, Mayo researchers investigate genetic pathways that may contribute to both vascular pathologies and Alzheimer's disease.
