NCT ID: NCT01500681 Active, not recruiting - Clinical trials for Neuromyelitis Optica

Maintenance Plasma Exchange for Neuromyelitis Optica

Start date: June 2012
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system that is associated with autoantibodies to aquaporin-4. Treatment options for prevention of clinical relapses of NMO include immunosuppressive medications. Plasma exchange (PLEX) is commonly used as a rescue therapy for NMO relapses but ongoing, regular PLEX procedures (maintenance PLEX) is sometimes used to prevent relapses. This observational registry will record feasibility, tolerability, safety, and preliminary efficacy data regarding maintenance PLEX for NMO.
