Diagnosis of inflammatory demyelinating diseases (IDD) with similar phenotype to neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorder (NMOSD), including optic neuritis (single or bilateral) and transverse myelitis; diagnosis of autoimmune myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG)-opathy; diagnosis of neuromyelitis optica (NMO); distinguishing NMOSD, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), optic neuritis, and transverse myelitis from multiple sclerosis early in the course of disease; diagnosis of ADEM; prediction of a relapsing disease course
MOG IgG antibody titers may assist in monitoring disease course and prognosis, but their role is imperfect. Antibody titers may increase but may not be predictive of relapses or attacks. MOG IgG antibodies may become undetectable with immunosuppression, but this does not necessarily indicate clinical response.
Results should not be used as a diagnostic procedure without confirmation of the diagnosis by another medically established diagnostic product or procedure.
