The purpose of this study is to create a robust electronic database for patient information, as well as to collect samples from individuals being evaluated or treated for central nervous system diseases (including Rasmussen syndrome, multiple sclerosis, transverse myelitis, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, neuromyelitis optica, among other conditions). We are also collecting information and samples from patients with other neurologic diseases such as migraine, neuropathy and sarcoidosis. Furthermore, volunteers can participate as healthy controls to support various research efforts.
We are collecting these samples and medical information so that they can be made available to research scientists who study these diseases. The goal of this research is to improve our ability to diagnose these conditions.
