One hundred and sixty-two patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) were followed over a 10-yr period to provide a profile of impairment and disability. The median height and weight of DMD boys were normally distributed before ages 9-10, but during the second decade height was markedly reduced, and weight was no longer normally distributed. Younger(More)
The objective of this 12-month study was to describe the clinical features of late-onset Pompe disease and identify appropriate outcome measures for use in clinical trials. Assessments included quantitative muscle testing (QMT), functional activities (FAA), 6-min walk test (6MWT), and pulmonary function testing (PFT). Percent predicted values indicated(More)
The objective of this report was to develop a case definition of distal symmetric polyneuropathy to standardize and facilitate clinical research and epidemiologic studies. A formalized consensus process was employed to reach agreement after a systematic review and classification of evidence from the literature. The literature indicates that symptoms alone(More)
BACKGROUND Distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSP) is the most common variety of neuropathy. Since the evaluation of this disorder is not standardized, the available literature was reviewed to provide evidence-based guidelines regarding the role of autonomic testing, nerve biopsy, and skin biopsy for the assessment of polyneuropathy. METHODS A literature(More)
Few studies have examined the effect of pain on the quality of life of individuals with slowly progressive neuromuscular disease (NMD). The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency and extent to which subjects with slowly progressive NMD report pain and the association between pain and health-related quality of life in persons with NMD. The(More)
The 5' leader of the HIV-1 genome contains conserved elements that direct selective packaging of the unspliced, dimeric viral RNA into assembling particles. By using a (2)H-edited nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) approach, we determined the structure of a 155-nucleotide region of the leader that is independently capable of directing packaging (core(More)
Distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSP) is the most common variety of neuropathy. Since the evaluation of this disorder is not standardized, the available literature was reviewed to provide evidence-based guidelines regarding the role of autonomic testing, nerve biopsy, and skin biopsy for the assessment of polyneuropathy. A literature review using MEDLINE,(More)
BACKGROUND Mutations in the peripheral myelin protein 22 (PMP-22) gene are the most common cause of Charcot-Marie-Tooth neuropathy and may rarely occur in combination with other neurogenetic diseases. OBJECTIVE To characterize 3 families having a mutation in PMP-22 in addition to another neurogenetic disease mutation. DESIGN Clinical,(More)
BACKGROUND Distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSP) is the most common variety of neuropathy. Since the evaluation of this disorder is not standardized, the available literature was reviewed to provide evidence-based guidelines regarding the role of laboratory and genetic tests for the assessment of DSP. METHODS A literature review using MEDLINE, EMBASE, and(More)
