The presence of polyglucosan bodies was studied in intramuscular motor nerves of 292 muscle biopsies. These biopsies were classified into five diagnostic categories and investigated for the presence of polyglucosan bodies in relation to age and sex. Their presence was nonspecific in patients over 20 years, the only correlation being with ageing. Under 20(More)
AIMS To investigate the safety and tolerability of pardoprunox (SLV308), a novel partial dopamine agonist, as an adjunct to levodopa in patients with advanced Parkinson's disease, using two titration schedules. METHODS Patients were randomized to pardoprunox (n = 51) or placebo (n = 11). Pardoprunox was titrated to the highest tolerated dose (range,(More)
Myotonic dystrophy (DM) is well known for its highly variable clinical picture, including the age at which symptoms are first detected. In order to assess the proportion of asymptomatic gene carriers at different ages, we have used linked DNA markers to study individuals at 50% genetic risk of DM, in whom neurological examination, slit-lamp examination and(More)
PURPOSE This post hoc analysis evaluated treatment effects, safety, and pharmacokinetics of enzalutamide in Korean patients in the phase 3, double-blind, placebo-controlled PREVAIL trial. MATERIALS AND METHODS Asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic chemotherapy-naive men with metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer that progressed on androgen(More)
A finger cooling test is used to objectify Raynaud's phenomenon and to assess its severity. For this purpose, finger skin temperature (FST) and laser Doppler flux (LDF) are measured on the fingertips before and during cooling of the hand (16 degrees water bath for 5 min) and a subsequent recovery period (20 min). To study reproducibility, this test was(More)
In order to evaluate the effects due to acute cerebrovascular disease on serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) parameters, biochemical data from 312 patients were studied. In serum, CK, LD and alpha 1 protein fraction showed a moderately close relationship to the severity of stroke. In CSF there could not be observed any relation between enzymatic activities(More)
