OBJECTIVE To assess the efficacy of bilateral deep brain stimulation of the internal part of the globus pallidus to treat severe TD. DESIGN Prospective phase 2 multicenter(More)
During the pre-surgical evaluation of drug-resistant epilepsy, the assessment of the extent of the epileptogenic zone and its organization is a crucial objective. Indeed, the epileptogenic zone may be organized as a simple focal lesional site or as a more complex network (often referred to as the 'epileptogenic network') extending beyond the lesion. This(More)
Human mesial temporal lobe epilepsies (MTLE) are the most frequent form of partial epilepsies and display frequent pharmacoresistance. The molecular alterations underlying human MTLE remain poorly understood. A two-step transcriptional analysis consisting in cDNA microarray experiments followed by quantitative RT-PCR validations was performed. Because the(More)
Intrathecal morphine (ITM) is commonly used for the treatment of cancer pain. There is reluctance for its use in France to treat chronic noncancer pain. In order to appreciate its popularity, efficacy, dose escalation with time, and long-term tolerance, we carried out a retrospective study in the neurosurgery departments of university teaching hospitals in(More)
BACKGROUND The modulation of extracellular adenosine concentration by opioids provides evidence that the antinociceptive effects of these compounds involve endogenous adenosine. The aim of this study was to determine whether there is a relation between the inhibition of brain synaptosome adenosine uptake by opioid agonists and the analgesic effects of these(More)
