What is the full form of ADS?
In Medical, ADS stands for “Acquired Demyelinating Syndrome”. Acquired demyelinating syndromes (ADS) are immune-mediated demyelinating disorders of the central nervous system in children. ADS encompasses a wide spectrum of neurological symptoms depending on the location of inflammation and the severity of demyelination. The children with ADS who have the highest likelihood of multiple sclerosis (MS) are adolescent girls with demyelination in more than one area of the CNS. Approximately one third of children with ADS will be diagnosed with MS, typically within 2-4 years after ADS.
