Neurological symptoms: a diagnostic challenge

There is a huge variety of neurological diseases and it often takes specialists a long time to figure out the cause of a patient’s symptoms. Doctors regularly encounter patients with unspecific neurological complaints. In these cases, differential diagnostics is crucial to finding the right therapy. Even if the doctor has a suspicion and there are


Novel autoantibody against DAGLA discovered in cerebellitis

Diacylglycerol lipase alpha (DAGLA) has been identified as a novel autoantibody target in patients with rapid progressive cerebellar ataxia. The autoantibodies were characterised as part of a collaborative study between scientists at EUROIMMUN (Lübeck, Germany), the Hannover Medical School, (Hannover, Germany) and further institutes and clinics. The study was published in April 2024 the journal


Antibody testing reduces dengue vaccination risk

As the COVID-19 pandemic has recently demonstrated, vaccinations are one of the most important and effective preventive measures in medicine for the protection against an infectious disease. Dengue fever is one of the most common infectious diseases worldwide, but often underestimated. Dengue fever is caused by dengue virus (DENV) which is, among others, spread to
