Totally 32 cerebrospinal fluid samples from Multiple sclerosis (MS) patients were collected. DNA was extracted by High Pure PCR Template Preparation Kit. Two genomic segments, outer membrane protein genes ompA and omp9, were targeted for the detection of C. pneumoniae DNA in the samples by PCR tests. To detect ompA, a nested-PCR assay was designed, whereas(More)
A medium-latency response (MLR) has been recorded from soleus during stance and walking, and has been attributed to stretch-evoked volleys in group II afferents. The present paper describes a MLR in soleus evoked by stimulating the deep peroneal nerve, documents its characteristics and addresses its likely origin. The MLR of soleus was recorded in healthy(More)
Transcranial electrical or magnetic stimulation was performed in 47 experiments on 42 normal adult subjects. Surface compound muscle action potentials were recorded from the antagonistic tibialis anterior (TA) and soleus (SOL) muscles. A stable late response recorded from SOL during voluntary ankle dorsiflexion is described and called soleus MEP-80. Its(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to determine diffusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), magnetization transfer (MT) imaging and multivoxel MR spectroscopy findings in plaques, periplaque white matter and normal appearing white matter (NAWM) regions in multiple sclerosis (MS) and to correlate the findings with the expanded disability status scale (EDSS).(More)
The F response parameters may provide a sensitive method for detection of mild neuropathy in patients with otherwise normal nerve conduction studies. We investigated conventional nerve conduction studies and F response parameters in patients with Behçet's disease (BD), but without neurologic involvement. The results indicate that ulnar motor and sensory,(More)

Clinically isolated syndrome (CIS) is a term that describes the first clinical onset of potential multiple sclerosis (MS). The term CIS is typically applied to young adults with episodes of acute or subacute onset, which reaches a peak quite rapidly within 2-3 weeks. In 85% of young adults who develop MS, onset occurs with an acute, CIS of the optic nerves,(More)
Subclavian steal syndrome (SSS) is a clinical entity characterized by brachial and basilar insufficiency as a result of critical proximal subclavian artery stenosis or occlusion. We report a patient of giant hypervascular thyroid nodule presenting with features of SSS. The left hand ischemia and symptoms of vertebro-basilar artery in our patient were(More)
