This paper presents data concerning auditory evoked responses in the middle latency range (wave Pam/Pa) and slow latency range (wave N1m/N1) recorded from 12 subjects. It is the first group study to report multi-channel data of both MEG and EEG recordings from the human auditory cortex. The experimental procedure involved potential and current density(More)
Ischemic stroke is a rare event in childhood. In approximately one third of cases no obvious underlying cause or disorder can be detected. We investigated the importance of genetic risk factors of venous thromboembolism in childhood or stroke in adulthood as risk factors for spontaneous ischemic stroke in children. One hundred forty-eight Caucasian infants(More)
Mutations in the alpha-1a Tubulin (TUBA1A) gene have recently been found to cause cortical malformations resemblant of classical lissencephaly but with a specific combination of features. To date, TUBA1A mutations have been described in five patients and three foetuses. Our aims were to establish how common TUBA1A mutations are in patients with(More)
Transforming growth factor-beta2 (TGF-beta2) is known to suppress the immune response to cancer cells and plays a pivotal role in tumor progression by regulating key mechanisms including proliferation, metastasis, and angiogenesis. For targeted protein suppression the TGF-beta2-specific antisense oligodeoxynucleotide AP 12009 was developed. In vitro(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) by an intraluminal filament is a widely accepted animal model of focal cerebral ischemia. In this procedure, cutting of the external carotid artery (ECA) is a prerequisite for thread insertion. However, the implications of ECA transsection have not yet been described. METHODS After 90 minutes(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the usefulness of routine performance of computed tomography (CT) of the craniocervical junction in unconscious patients with substantial head injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a prospective study, CT of the head and the cervicocranium was performed in 202 patients with substantial cranial trauma (Glasgow Coma Scale scores of 3-6).(More)
OBJECTIVE Hereditary spastic paraplegias (HSPs) comprise a heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders resulting in progressive spasticity of the lower limbs. One form of autosomal recessive hereditary spastic paraplegia (ARHSP) with thin corpus callosum (TCC) was linked to chromosomal region 15q13-21 (SPG11) and associated with mutations in the(More)
In order to further clarify the pathogenesis and clinical significance of MRI white matter abnormalities in treated hyperphenylalaninaemia (HPA), ten patients (seven type I HPA, two type II and one type III) underwent T2 relaxometry (n=8) and/or1H spectroscopy (n=7) in addition to conventional MR spin-echo imaging at 1.5 T. Two patients with severe MRI(More)
Pre-eclampsia and eclampsia represent a syndrome with progressive pregnancy-induced hypertension. They are associated with considerable morbidity and mortality. The pre-eclampsia/eclampsia syndrome has been hypothesized to reflect a subtype of hypertensive encephalopathy. Additionally, an endothelial dysfunction with impaired cerebral autoregulation has(More)
