Hashimoto's Encephalopathy/SREAT & Seronegative Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance

Providing patient support to, public awareness of, and medical research for Hashimoto's Encephalopathy (HE)/SREAT and Seronegative Autoimmune Encephalitis (SAE).

HESA is a 501 3(c) not for profit organization for

Autoimmune Encephalitis, specifically Hashimoto's Encephalopathy/SREAT (HE/SREAT) and

Seronegative Autoimmune Encephalitis (SAE).

Seronegative means there is no known antibody identified as the cause of Autoimmune Encephalitis.

The Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy/SREAT & Seronegative Autoimmune Encephalitis Alliance was formed in 2012 by two HE patients.
It is HESA’s mission to collect, archive, and share information regarding Hashimoto’s Encephalopathy (“HE”),

also known as Steroid Responsive Encephalopathy Associated with Thyroiditis (“SREAT”),
and Seronegative Autoimmune Encephalitis ("SAE") with the public and medical professionals.
We share information relevant to HE/SREAT and SAE as well as updates on HESA's activities and our publications.

It is vital to have more research done for Hashimoto's encephalopathy and to make this broadly available to improve our understanding of HE and possible treatments.

We are in the process of formalizing our first grant to Dr. Ahmed Zayed Obeidat and his team and are eager to continue with him on future research projects!
