Link: Antibody-Mediated Epilepsies

This study discusses the presence of antibodies against the neuronal surface proteins which lead to drug-resistent epilepsies. These epilepsies respond to immunologic therapies. Most of the article can be found at this link. Unfortunately, the rest of the article is available to subscribers only.
