Essential tremor is the most common movement disorder in adults. It is characterized by a postural and kinetic tremor affecting the arms, but it can also affect other body parts. It evolves gradually and can be responsible for a functional impairment in activities of daily living. Its pathophysiology remains poorly understood and effective therapeutic(More)
Tremor is a highly prevalent movement disorder that markedly reduces quality of life. The management of severe tremor is particularly challenging. Pharmacological treatment is available, but no real breakthrough has emerged recently. Propranolol and primidone are still the two most recommended agents, followed by topiramate.

INTRODUCTION Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome is a rare and autoimmune presynaptic disorder of the neuromuscular junction, due in 85% of cases to autoantibodies directed against voltage-gated calcium channels. It is a paraneoplastic disorder in 50 to 60% of cases. Diagnosis involves a proximal muscle weakness and areflexia, associated with a significant(More)
Homeobox-containing genes represent attractive candidates for regulators of pattern formation during vertebrate development. In this regard, the expression patterns of Hox genes correlate temporarily and spatially with critical morphogenic events. Gene disruptions and gain-of-function mutations generated in mice have shown that improper expression of Hox(More)
