Autoimmune Neurology Diagnostics

Autoimmunity as the root cause for neurological disorders is an exciting new paradigm. Neuroimmunology in general & Autoimmune Neurology in particular is a rapidly emerging 21st century subspecialty of Neurology. Driven by the discovery of novel neuronal antibodies, this field has evolved drastically in the last decade.

The list of Neuroimmune diseases has expanded rapidly. From the early days of MS, GBS & MG, we have come a long way to include diseases considered to be purely neurological. Today, Neuroimmunology is known to play a role in AD, PD, ALS, genetic white matter disorders, epilepsy, neurodegenerative diseases, neuropsychiatric disorders, peripheral nervous system & neuro-oncological conditions as well as behavioural & mood disorders.

Understanding the interplay between the immune system, CNS & PNS, is critical to:
Autoimmune diagnostics

Diagnose & treat neurological conditions

Measuring immunological biomarkers for diagnosis

Monitor & stratify
patients ​

Institute appropriate immune therapeutics​

The complexity & challenges posed by this fascinating field are beyond the means of routine labs.  This calls for an expert team that combines the knowledge & techniques used by neuroscientists & immunologists.

Neuro-Immunology Lab at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, Cochin is India’s 1st research facility dedicated to Neuro Immunology. It is led by Dr. Sudheeran Kannoth, the only Neuro-Immunologist of India, a Fellow from Mayo Clinic – the pioneers & authority in Neuro-Immunology research. The lab operations include a team of veteran immuno-pathologists, neuro scientists & immunologists with over 60 years of collective experience in research & diagnostic operations.

This 1st of its kind lab in India, offers clinically validated novel auto-antibody profiles that inform neurological decision-making.
