ON-COLOUR - Investigating vascular predictors of poor visual outcome in the multidisciplinary management of immune-mediated optic neuritis

Finanziato dal MUR

Banner PRIN 2022.jpg


It is clear that too simplistically the term ‘optic neuritis’ is associated to an inflammatory optic neuropathy, and in relation to MS and NMOSD. Immune-mediated ON is indeed a much more complex condition, of partially unraveled nature and with only suboptimal management.

ON-COLOUR attempts to tackle the following main gaps of knowledge about ON and to provide clues to optimize its management:

(1) the lack of consistent ON classification;

(2) an inconsistently performed diagnostic pathway;

(3) the overlooking of potentially relevant yet neglected prognostic factors; and, consequently

(4) the lack of a multidisciplinary care pathway in the management of ON.
