NOVELLA GROUP PTY LTD SUPPORTS THE INTERNATIONAL AUTOIMMUNE ENECEPHALITIS SOCIETY
Autoimmune Encephalopathy (AE) is a rare, often misdiagnosed/undiagnosed progressive disease caused by auto-antibodies produced by the immune system. They attack special proteins (receptors) on the surface nerve cells of the brain. Brain cells are subsequently destroyed resulting in severe brain inflamation and brain malfunction.
All brain functions are compromised: emotions, memory, problem solving, speech, movement, balance, visual processing, sensory, hunger, thirst, behaviour and personality traits. As the antibodies circulate in the blood the brain continues to swell, causing perivascular disease, damaging and rupturing the very tiny vessels in the brain. For most it is a lifelong disease............extract source:
