BACKGROUND Preclinical studies suggest that glutamate antagonists help ameliorate motor fluctuations in patients with PD treated with levodopa. METHODS In a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel-group, dose-ranging study, the authors assessed the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of the glutamate receptor blocker remacemide(More)
BACKGROUND Identifying PD-specific biomarkers in biofluids will greatly aid in diagnosis, monitoring progression, and therapeutic interventions. PD biomarkers have been limited by poor discriminatory power, partly driven by heterogeneity of the disease, variability of collection protocols, and focus on de novo, unmedicated patients. Thus, a platform for(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the predictability of intrapair percentage differences of ultrasonic fetal biometric parameters in detecting twin discordancy. Fetal biometric parameters obtained in 90 twin gestations within 7 days of delivery were analyzed. Intrapair differences of 5% and 10% were used for biparietal diameter (BPD), head(More)
Estimated fetal weights from 1684 cases with singleton, live infants born within 7 days of an ultrasonographic examinations were compared with their birth weights, which ranged from 520 to 5920 gm. Estimated weight calculated from Shepard's equation produced a linear relationship of birth weight against estimated weight with an intercept and slope of 209.5(More)
This study was designed to determine rates of primary care physician compliance with recommendations made by physician-consultants at an Alzheimer's disease center. A mail survey was sent to primary care physicians, who were asked to indicate which recommendations had been implemented and to select reasons for lack of adherence. The response rate was 53(More)
