Encephalitis Brain Science
Encephalitis research includes studies aimed at finding ways to prevent or cure the infections that cause the condition, effective ways to treat the condition when it occurs, and ways to better help patients to recover from the effects of encephalitis over the long term.
One current study is examining the early symptoms of anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, specifically psychiatric and speech symptoms that occur in the early phases of the condition. These early symptoms often progress to more severe symptoms such as seizures and movement abnormalities. The study hopes to help practitioners better recognize the very early signs so that treatment can begin before the condition becomes more severe.
Another study is looking at the recovery obstacles faced by survivors of autoimmune encephalitis and their caregivers. Researchers hope that by having a more thorough understanding of what it means to live with the effects of encephalitis, practitioners will be able to develop more effective therapies and support systems.
