BACKGROUND Anti-neuronal autoimmunity may cause cognitive impairment that meets the criteria for dementia. Objective. Our aim was to detect the incidence and clinical features of autoimmune encephalitis imitating clinical findings of primary dementia disorders and to delineate the validity of anti-neuronal antibody screening in dementia patients.

Efforts for the identification of diagnostic autoantibodies for neuro-Behcet's disease (NBD) have failed. Screening of NBD patients' sera with protein macroarray identified mitochondrial carrier homolog 1 (Mtch1), an apoptosis-related protein, as a potential autoantigen. ELISA studies showed serum Mtch1 antibodies in 68 of 144 BD patients with or without(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by progressive degeneration of the dopaminergic neurons in substantia nigra, presumably due to increased apoptosis and oxidative stress. To investigate whether PD-induced survival/apoptosis gene expression changes can serve as prognostic biomarkers of PD, we measured expression levels of(More)
