Electrophysiological classification of guillain‐barré syndrome: Clinical associations and outcome
TLDR
Patients with pure motor GBS, enrolled in a trial comparing plasma exchange, intravenous immunoglobulin, and both treatments, were more likely than other GBS patients to have IgG antiganglioside GM1 antibodies and to have had preceding diarrhea but had a similar outcome.
Glucocorticoid corticosteroids for Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
TLDR
There is evidence from randomised controlled studies that glucocorticoid corticosteroid therapy in Duchenne muscular dystrophy improves muscle strength and function in the short-term (six months to two years) and clinically significant adverse effects of long-term treatment are indicated.
The rate and cost of hospital-acquired infections occurring in patients admitted to selected specialties of a district general hospital in England and the national burden imposed.
TLDR
Estimates of the burden of hospital-acquired infections occurring in adult patients admitted to similar specialties at NHS hospitals in England were derived from the results of this study.
Intravenous immunoglobulin for Guillain-Barré syndrome.
BACKGROUND Guillain-Barré syndrome is an acute, paralysing, inflammatory peripheral nerve disease. Intravenous immunoglobulin is beneficial in other autoimmune diseases. OBJECTIVES We aimed to
A controlled investigation of the cause of chronic idiopathic axonal polyneuropathy.
TLDR
A logistic regression analysis identified environmental toxin exposure and hypertriglyceridaemia, but not glucose intolerance or alcohol overuse as significant risk factors that deserve further investigation as possible causes of CIAP.
Preceding infections, immune factors, and outcome in Guillain–Barré syndrome
TLDR
Subtypes of GBS defined by preceding infections were only approximately associated with different patterns of clinical, neurophysiologic, and immunologic features, implying interaction with additional host factors.
Late degenerative changes after meniscectomy. Factors affecting the knee after operation.
TLDR
These findings emphasise the important mechanical function of the meniscus and support the current cautious approach to meniscectomy, especially for patients in high risk groups, and indicate the value of early high tibial osteotomy for symptomatic varus deformity after medial menisCEctomy.
A case-case comparison of Campylobacter coli and Campylobacter jejuni infection: a tool for generating hypotheses.
TLDR
Case-case analysis was used to compare cases of Campylobacter coli infection with cases of C. jejuni infection, to generate hypotheses for infection from standardized, population-based sentinel surveillance information in England and Wales, and important differences in exposures were identified.
Intravenous immunoglobulin for Guillain-Barré syndrome.
TLDR
Moderate quality evidence is provided that, in severe disease, IVIg started within two weeks from onset hastens recovery as much as PE, but more research is needed in mild disease and in patients whose treatment starts more than two weeks after onset.
Immunotherapy for Guillain-Barré syndrome: a systematic review.
TLDR
Limited evidence from three open trials in children suggested that IVIg hastens recovery compared with supportive care alone, and more research is needed to identify better treatment regimens and new therapeutic strategies.
