BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Bone marrow mononuclear cell (BM-MNC) intra-arterial transplantation improves recovery in experimental models of ischemic stroke. We aimed to assess the safety, feasibility, and biological effects of autologous BM-MNC transplantation in patients with stroke. METHODS A single-blind (outcomes assessor) controlled Phase I/II trial was(More)
Resonance in thalamocortical networks is critically involved in sculpting oscillatory behavior in large ensembles of neocortical cells. Neocortical oscillations provide critical information about the integrity of thalamocortical circuits and functional connectivity of cortical networks, which seem to be significantly disrupted by the neuronal death and(More)
PURPOSE To determine clinical predictors and accuracy of (123)I-FP-CIT SPECT imaging in the differentiation of drug-induced parkinsonism (DIP) and Parkinson's disease (PD). METHODS Several clinical features and (123)I-FP-CIT SPECT images in 32 patients with DIP, 25 patients with PD unmasked by antidopaminergic drugs (PDu) and 22 patients with PD without a(More)
PURPOSE The study's objective was to develop diagnostic predictive models using data from two commonly used [(123)I]FP-CIT SPECT assessment methods: region-of-interest (ROI) analysis and whole-brain voxel-based analysis. METHODS We included retrospectively 80 patients with vascular parkinsonism (VP) and 164 patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) who(More)
BACKGROUND Discerning dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) from Alzheimer's disease (AD) is one of the most common and challenging differential diagnoses at the memory clinic. Although the neuropsychiatric manifestations have been widely reported as one of the main key points in the differential diagnosis between these two diseases, to date no neuropsychiatric(More)
PURPOSE Statistical parametric mapping (SPM) is a widely used produced for normalization of functional images. This study has aimed to develop a normalization template of (123)I-Ioflupane SPECT-imaging DaTSCAN(®), GE Healthcare), not available in SPM5, and to validate it compared to other quantification methods. MATERIAL AND METHODS In order to write the(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyse the differences in the clinical features and characteristics of (123)I-labelled 2β-carbomethoxy-3β-(4-iodophenyl)-N-(3-fluoropropyl) nortropane ((123)I-FP-CIT) single photon emission CT (SPECT) imaging among patients with vascular parkinsonism (VP) and Parkinson's disease (PD). METHODS We performed a case-control study to compare(More)
Growing evidence suggests that decreased functional connectivity in cortical networks precedes clinical stages of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), although our knowledge about cerebral and biological correlates of this phenomenon is limited. To shed light on this issue, we have investigated whether resting-state oscillatory connectivity patterns in healthy older(More)
The in vitro stimulation of lymphocytes with interleukin-2 (IL-2) generates lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells with tumoricidal potential. In this work we studied the cytolytic capacity of LAK cells in 51 acute leukemia patients in complete remission (CR) after chemotherapy (CT), in 24 acute leukemia patients who had undergone autologous bone marrow(More)
INTRODUCTION There is a strong association between the e4 allele of apolipoprotein E (APOE) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). This converts this allele into a risk factor for the development of AD. The association between APOE4 and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is under discussion. In DLB, the presence of APOE4 has been related with a greater amount of senile(More)
