We investigated the presence of anti-Yo-specific oligoclonal antibody bands in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum samples of 9 patients with anti-Yo syndrome and 11 controls. Isoelectric focusing combined with affinity blotting, revealed anti-Yo-specific intrathecal antibody synthesis in all patients with anti-Yo syndrome: Four patients had positive(More)
We evaluated the concentration of antineuronal antibodies in paired cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and serum samples from 19 patients with central and peripheral paraneoplastic neurological syndromes (PNS), using an enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) employing recombinant antineuronal antigens (HuD, Yo, Ri, CV2/CRMP5, amphiphysin, PNMA2/Ma2). The specific(More)
Some epidemiological surveys have shown an increased incidence of malignancies in patients with multiple Sclerosis (MS). Furthermore, in rare cases central demyelinating disorders like optic neuritis, encephalomyelitis, and myelitis could be of paraneoplastic origin. Antineuronal antibodies are frequently associated with paraneoplastic neurological(More)
OBJECTIVES Anti-SOX1 antibodies are associated with small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and predict a paraneoplastic etiology in Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome (LEMS). In 2010, a study described these antibodies in a small cohort of putative non-paraneoplastic, immune-mediated neuropathies. In this respect, we investigated the seroprevalence and specificity of(More)
