Norman Latov, MD, PhD
Professor of Neurology, Weill Cornell Medical Center, NY. Dr. Latov joined the department of Neurology and Neuroscience of the Weill Cornell Medical College in 2001, where he heads the Peripheral Neuropathy Clinical and Research Center. His clinical and laboratory research interests are in Peripheral Neuropathy and Neuroimmunology, focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of inflammatory neuropathies. His laboratory is credited with the discovery of anti-MAG and GM1 ganglioside antibodies that are implicated in the pathogenesis of autoimmune neuropathies, and for developing blood tests that are currently used to diagnose these conditions. He lectures widely, and has over 200 publications, including research articles, reviews, editorials, chapters and books.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Neuropathy with Monoclonal Gammopathy and IgM anti-MAG Antibodies
Participants will learn to recognize neuropathic syndromes associated with monoclonal gammopathies and how to differentiate between CIDP, MAG, neuropathy and POEMS Syndrome.
This activity is intended for general neurologists, neuromuscular specialists, neurology nurse practitioners, and physicians assistants.
- Recognize the neuropathic syndromes associated with monoclonal gammopathies
- Know how to differentiate between CIDP, MAG neuropathy, and POEMS syndrome
- Know the treatment options available for MAG neuropathy.
