Autoimmune encephalitis is the term for a inflammation of the brain caused by overactivation of the immune system. These conditions are underdiagnosed and in some highly treatable.

In Odense Autoimmune Encephalitis Research group, we aim to increase the understanding of these conditions in order to provide the best possible treatment for patients.

On this page you can see our current research projects, publications and how to engage in our research.

Furthermore, we aim to provide information to patients and caregivers about diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune encephalitis. These pages are in Danish. Patient information can be found in Danish and Norwegian. Swedish versions will soon be available

Autoimmun hjernebetændelse er betegnelsen for sygdomme med inflammation i hjernen forårsaget af et overaktivt immunsystem.

Disse tilstande er underdiagnosticerede og kan ofte behandles.

Vores forskningsgruppe arbejder på forstå disse sygdomme bedre, til gavn for behandling af patienterne.

På denne side kan du se vores nuværende forskningsprojekter, artikler og hvordan du kan hjælpe med denne forskning.

Ydermere ønsker vi at give information til patienter og pårørende omkring diagnostik og behandling af autoimmun hjernebetændelse. Disse sider er på dansk. Patient information findes på dansk og norsk. Svenske versioner vil snart være tilgængelige



We are currently enrolling Danish patients in a clinical study on autoimmune encephalitis. See video.

The Novo Nordisk Foundation granted funding for our projct on long-term outcome and burden of disease to be studied in our national AE cohort.

We are very greatful for the recognition
