Risk factors in subacute sclerosing panencephalitis: a case-control study.
TLDR
Children with SSPE were more likely to have suffered a serious head injury and to have come from larger families and more crowded homes than control children, and some infectious agent, transmitted from birds to man, may have contributed to the development of S SPE in predisposed individuals. Expand
Prevalence and determinants of water pipe or narghile use among students in Beirut's southern suburbs.
TLDR
Narghile use is a behavior gaining in importance in Lebanon in general, and in the Dahia area in particular, and its initiation among adolescents means that the probability of addiction is higher and the adverse health consequences are potentially more severe. Expand
Isolation of Measles Virus from Brain Cell Cultures of Two Patients with Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis
TLDR
Measles virus was isolated from brain cell tissue cultures derived from two SSPE patients that proved to contain intracellular measles antigen which was not released in the fluid phase. Expand
Epidemiologic studies of measles, measles vaccine, and subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.
TLDR
Because live measles vaccine is highly effective in preventing measles illness and a high proportion of children in the United States have received measles vaccine, these data are consistent with the observed downward trend in SSPE incidence since 1969. Expand
INOSIPLEX THERAPY IN SUBACUTE SCLEROSING PANENCEPHALITIS A Multicentre, Non-randomised Study in 98 Patients
TLDR
Inosiplex seems to be able to prolong life in patients with SSPE, and a modified logrank procedure demonstrated that the risk of dying in the treatment group was 43% of that in the controls. Expand
Subacute schlerosing panencephalitis in the middle east: Report of 99 cases
TLDR
All patients entering with a differential diagnosis of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis at two major Lebanese medical centers since 1956 yielded 99 cases, including an epidemic pattern with 4 cases during 1956–57; and, after 1966, 1.7 cases per year per million total population in Lebanon alone. Expand
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis
TLDR
Clinical, neurophysiologic and neuropathologic findings were correlated in five cases of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis, indicating relative preservation of the cortex in the early stages of the disease. Expand
Possible influence of carbamazepine on plasma imipramine concentrations in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
It is suggested that increased imipramine doses may be necessary for adequate response in children on combined therapy and toxicity could result upon withdrawal without imipramsine dosage adjustment. Expand
Pharmacokinetics of Sumatriptan Nasal Spray in Children
TLDR
The age‐ and weight‐adjusted dosing scheme appears to an appropriate initial dosing regimen for children with migraine headache, and the covariate analysis showed that volume increases with age and clearance increases with body size. Expand
