Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) induced by JC virus (JCV) is a risk for natalizumab-treated multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. Here we characterize the JCV-specific T cell responses in healthy donors and natalizumab-treated MS patients to reveal functional differences that may account for the development of natalizumab-associated PML.

The South East Wales Cancer Network covers a population of 1,420,000 and maintains a database of treatments used. We(More)
Pulmonary sarcoidosis and hypersensitivity pneumonitis are two disease entities that may have similar clinical, laboratory, and pathological features. A low index of suspicion for hypersensitivity pneumonitis combined with the overlapping features contribute to the difficulty of distinguishing the two diseases. Indeed, two case series suggest that four of(More)
Multiple sclerosis is the most common disabling neurological disease of young adults. The ability to impact the quality of life of patients with multiple sclerosis should not only incorporate therapies that are disease modifying, but should also include a course of action for the global multidisciplinary management focused on quality of life and functional(More)
BACKGROUND Fatigue during and after radiotherapy impacts negatively on normal functioning and quality of life. A pre-treatment estimate of the risk of fatigue would facilitate the targeting of timely interventions to limit consequential behavioural symptoms arising. We have developed a prognostic tool to predict the risk of fatigue in women with early-stage(More)
A 41-year-old lady underwent a left mastectomy and axillary clearance in 1992, for T2N0 breast cancer. She remained well until December 1995, when she presented with a rapidly progressive cerebellar ataxia. Full investigations for metastatic disease were negative. A clinical diagnosis of paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration was confirmed by a high titre(More)
