Patient Education Videos: A key to unlocking the language barrier

Americans are more racially and ethnically diverse than ever. The Pew Research Center reports that nearly 59 million immigrants have arrived in the U.S. in the past 50 years, mostly from Latin America and Asia. Today, a near-record 14 per cent of the country’s population is foreign born compared with just 5 per cent in 1965.3 While this makes for a more culturally diverse society, it can create challenges in health care.

The Cunningham Panel™ Animation Released by Understand.com® to Educate Physicians and Families About PANDAS and PANS

October 9th represents PANDAS/PANS Awareness Day.

Understand.com is excited to announce the release of The Cunningham Panel™ animation. Developed by Moleculera Labs™, the Cunningham Panel™ is the first and only series of laboratory tests available to help physicians diagnose and treat the infection-triggered autoimmune disorders known as PANDAS and PANS. This test can help to identify the level of autoimmune antibodies associated with PANDAS and PANS and the capability that these antibodies have to stimulate and trigger neurologic behavior. Elevated levels of these antibodies indicate that a child’s symptoms may be due to an infection-induced autoimmune response.

This custom animation explains the complex molecular processes behind PANDAS and PANS and how the revolutionary Cunningham Panel™ can help physicians in diagnosing these treatable autoimmune conditions.

Learn more about PANDAS, PANS, and The Cunningham Panel™ here.
