Preclinical studies are essential for translation to disease treatments and effective use in clinical practice. An undue emphasis on single approaches to Alzheimer's disease (AD) appears to have retarded the pace of translation in the field, and there is much frustration in the public about the lack of an effective treatment. We critically reviewed past(More)
Recent data have provided overwhelming evidence in favor of benefits of emergent endovascular intervention in large vessel acute ischemic stroke (AIS). India with its large population has a huge burden of AIS. Hence, neurologists need to gear up to the new challenge of providing interventional care to huge populations of AIS in the country. The best way to(More)
OBJECTIVES The neuromuscular transmission failure in acute organophosphate (OP) poisoning occurs because of the irreversible inactivation of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase located in the neuromuscular junction, and is distinguished neuroelectrophysiologically by single electrical stimulus-induced repetitive responses and either a decremental or a(More)

During the First World War, a European country cast aside the humanitarian tradition of its poets and philosophers and attacked its enemies with a wave of chlorine gas; the same nation, 30 years(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of oral delayed-release dimethyl fumarate (DMF; also known as gastro-resistant DMF) on MRI lesion activity and load, atrophy, and magnetization transfer ratio (MTR) measures from the Comparator and an Oral Fumarate in Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (CONFIRM) study. METHODS CONFIRM was a 2-year, placebo-controlled(More)
PURPOSE To assess the association of long-term sodium valproate therapy with reproductive endocrine disorders in Indian women with generalized epilepsy. METHODS Clinical parameters, ovarian morphology, and serum reproductive hormone concentrations were evaluated in 30 clinically normal and eumenorrheic reproductive age women with generalized epilepsy who(More)
INTRODUCTION In rat stroke models, sphenopalatine ganglion stimulation up to 24 h after stroke onset augments cerebral blood flow, reduces infarct volume and improves neurological deficits. The ischaemic stroke system 500 has been designed to stimulate the sphenopalatine ganglion in humans. OBJECTIVES (1) To determine the safety and tolerability of the(More)
