Associate Professor James Scott will speak on the prevalence and treatment outcomes of anti-neuronal antibody positive patients admitted with first episode of psychosis.

A small, but significant subgroup of patients with first episode psychosis have anti-neuronal antibodies detectable in serum and evidence of central nervous system autoimmune pathology.  Early identification of these patients and referral for appropriate treatment is critical to optimise recovery.
