To evaluate intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy in children with very severe Guilain-Barré syndrome (GBS) with reference to the need for respiratory support, ICU stay and long-term outcome, we studied 33 children with very severe GBS and quadriparesis and/or respiratory muscle weakness admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) of PGIMER, Chandigarh.

EAN can be actively induced by immunization with bovine peripheral nerve myelin, bovine P2 protein, or a peptide containing its neuritogenic epitope and serves as a model of the human Guilain-Barré syndrome. Adoptive transfer of activated P2-specific T lymphocytes also produces the monophasic disease (AT-EAN) characterized by inflammation and demyelination of peripheral nerves and highlights the central role of T lymphocytes in the pathogenesis of EAN...
