(32) We only measured anti-GAD
antibodies, which might result in underestimation of the prevalence of diabetes predisposition in our cohort.
This case illustrates similar findings in anti-GAD
encephalitis with CT perfusion.
He presented with subsequent left upper extremity focal SLS diagnosed two years before this admission by anti-GAD
antibody elevation and electromyography (EMG) findings.
[Prevalence of immunologic markers (Anti-GAD
and Anti-IA2) in first-degree relatives of patients with type I diabetes in the greater area of Sao Paulo].
The clinical spectrum of anti-GAD
antibody-positive patients with stiff-person syndrome.
Investigations were consistent with a cerebellar paraneoplastic disorder supported by a histologically proven diagnosis of SCLC, brain 18-FDG-PET findings, and positive anti-GAD
antibodies [12, 13].
antibodies were first described in type 1 diabetic Patients.
A month ago, a specialist did another anti-gad
test and this time the reading was conclusive proof.
When known concentrations (0.5-12.5 RU/mL) of monoclonal anti-GAD
antibodies were added to serum samples containing known concentrations of anti-TPO or anti-Tg autoantibodies, serum samples with anti-TPO autoantibodies showed little and samples with anti-Tg autoantibodies showed no cross-reactivity.
The double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover trial included 16 patients who had stiff-person syndrome and tested positive for antiglutamic acid decarboxylase (anti-GAD
Blood glutamic acid decarboxylase antibody (anti-GAD
) level was 2114 IU/mL (0-10) and the cerebrospinal fluid anti-GAD
level was 4.07 nmol/L (<0.02).
