    Role of the neuromuscular ultrasound in the diagnostic of the multifocal motor neuropathy

    Antonios Kerasnoudis , Kalliopi Pitarokoili , Min-Suk Yoon
    Multifocal motor neuropathy (MMN) is the one of the most common acquired immune-mediated inflammatory disorders of the peripheral nervous system. The diagnosis is based on the distribution pattern of the neurological semiology and the pathological changes of nerve conduction studies (NCS) in... Read more

    Positron emission tomography imaging in gliomas

    Assimakis Assimakopoulos , Konstantinos Polyzoidis , Chrissa Sioka
    Glioma, the most frequent primary brain tumor in adults, is a highly infiltrative tumor exhibiting resistance to most treatments and associated with short survival of patients. Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging using various tracers takes advantage of the increased metabolic rate of... Read more

    Clinicogenetics of Parkinson's disease: a drawing but not completed picture

    Chao-Dong Wang , Piu Chan
    Parkinson's disease (PD) is a prevalent neurodegenerative disorder mainly affecting the population over the age of 60 years. The past decade has seen rapidly emerging data supporting a major importance of genetic factors in the development of PD. Increasing number of large-scale and replicating... Read more

    Current overview of myasthenia gravis and experience in China

    Jun Guo , Dan Dang , Hong-Zeng Li , Zhu-Yi Li
    Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an acquired autoimmune disease affecting synaptic transmission via the neuromuscular junction mainly due to the presence of auto-antibodies targeting acetylcholine receptors. Ocular or generalized MG is clinically diagnosed when the extra-ocular muscles or other muscle... Read more

    Prognostic significance of neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio in glioblastoma

    George A Alexiou , Evrysthenis Vartholomatos , Panagiota Zagorianakou , Spyridon Voulgaris
    Aim: The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has prognostic value in patients with a variety of cancers. The purpose of this study was to investigate the prognostic value of NLR in patients with glioblastoma. Methods: A prospective study was conducted on patients receiving surgery for... Read more

    Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 9 is upregulated in the endothelium and tumor cells in melanoma brain metastasis

    Patrick N Harter , Anna-Eva Blank , Benjamin Weide , Rudi Beschorner , Simon Bernatz , Peter Baumgarten , Anne K Braczynski , Elke Hattingen , Michael W Ronellenfitsch , Herbert Schwarz , Michel Mittelbronn
    Aim: The cytokine receptor tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 9 (TNFRSF9) is mainly considered to be a co-stimulatory activation marker in hematopoietic cells. Several preclinical models have shown a dramatic beneficial effect of treatment approaches targeting TNFRSF9 with... Read more

    Assessment of cognitive function in patients with myasthenia gravis

    Sherifa A Hamed , Ahmad H Youssef , Mohamad A Abd ElHameed , Mohamed F Mohamed , Amal M Elattar
    Aim: During the past decade, there has been an increasing interest in the evaluation of cognitive function in myasthenia gravis (MG), neuromuscular transmission disorder caused by acetylcholine receptor auto-antibodies. However, the results of previous studies on cognition and MG are inconsistent... Read more

    Distinctive distribution of lymphocytes in unruptured and previously untreated brain arteriovenous malformation

    Yi Guo , Tarik Tihan , Helen Kim , Christopher Hess , Michael T Lawton , William L Young , Yuan-Li Zhao , Hua Su
    Aim: To test the hypothesis that lymphocyte infiltration in brain arteriovenous malformation (bAVM) is not associated with iron deposition (indicator of micro-hemorrhage). Methods: Sections of unruptured, previously untreated bAVM specimens (n = 19) were stained immunohistochemically for... Read more

    Increased circulating rather than spinal cytokines accompany chronic pain behaviors in experimental bone cancer and arthritis

    Line Pourtau , Amarins Nieske Heeringa , Carole Rovère , Agnès Aubert , Jean-Louis Nahon , Sylvain Miraux , Jan Pieter Konsman
    Aim: Peripheral cytokines contribute to arthritis and bone cancer pain through sensory nerve actions. However, increased spinal cytokine and glial filament expression, coined neuroinflammation, has also been proposed to play a part in chronic pain. Therefore, spinal cord, dorsal root ganglia and...
