GBS which stands for Guilan-Barre Syndrome is a rare type of disease in the nervous system where there is a failure of the body's defense system that attacks nerve cells owned by the body. The exact cause of this disease is not known for certain. But usually in patients with GBS found a history of respiratory tract infections such as sore throat or flu before complaints of muscle weakness occur.
This disease is not a type of infectious disease because what underlies the occurrence of this disease is the fault of the body's defense system owned by GBS sufferers. So there is no need to worry that you or anyone else will be infected by this disease.
Until now there is no vaccination to prevent the occurrence of GBS and can not be cured completely. Therapy that is usually done is to suppress the work of the immune system so as not to attack the existing nerve cells again.
