Sera and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from 25 patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) were tested by immunofluorescence on fetal, juvenile and adult central and peripheral neuronal (CNS/PNS) tissues and on nerve biopsy material from affected patients for the presence of autoantibodies. Results were compared with control sera from normal blood donors(More)
Genetic aberrations associated with the development of extranodal high-grade large B-cell lymphoma originating in the stomach have not been fully identified yet. We analyzed 31 such lymphomas using 73 microsatellite markers for allelic imbalance and microsatellite instability. The highest frequency (42%) of loss of heterozygosity (LOH) was found on the long(More)
Expression by neoplastic thymic epithelial cells of acetylcholine-receptor (AChR) epitopes is associated with the presence of AChR autoantibodies and the development of myasthenia gravis. We studied thymic tumours from patients with and without myasthenia gravis for the expression of neurofilament epitopes by immunohistochemistry with four monoclonal(More)
Helicobacter pylori eradication is the initial treatment of choice in localised low-grade gastric MALT (mucosa-associated lymphoid-tissue)-type lymphoma. We describe the natural course of seven patients who refused further oncological treatment for persistent lymphoma after successful eradication of H pylori. Despite persistent clonality, neither lymphoma(More)
Study Design Case report. Objective This report describes the first case of a sacroiliac coalition, its clinical features, the diagnostic difficulties, and the surgical treatment chosen in this case. Methods A 33-year-old man presented to our outpatient clinics complaining of severe left-sided low back pain with an intermitted nondermatomal radiation into(More)
The effect of simian immunodeficiency virus infection in vitro and in vivo on the cytokine production of isolated microglia and peripheral macrophages from rhesus monkeys Impact of various simian immunodeficiency virus variants on induction and nature of neuropathology in macaques Res. Nature and sequence of simian immunodeficiency virus-induced central(More)
In patients with inflammatory demyelinating neuropathy, which is possibly mediated by autoreactive, myelin-specific T lymphocytes, most studies focusing on immune responses to the major neuritogenic myelin protein P2 have been performed with bovine P2. However, the primary structure of bovine P2 differs from the human protein by nine amino acid residues(More)
