Paraneoplastic Neurological Syndromes (PNS) research group
Paraneoplastic neurological syndromes (PNS) are autoimmune reactions that occur in connection with cancer.
The work of the group aims to find the mechanism behind the most common type of PNS, Paraneoplastic Cerebellar Degeneration (PCD), which is most often associated with small-cell lung cancer, ovarian cancer and breast cancer.
We hope to be able to identify the tumour at an earlier stage. Specific cancer treatment can then be started, and the chance for better recovery is increased.
