Simple morphological assessment of conventional MRI used in routine neurological diagnostic work-up lacks sensitivity and specificity for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Quantitative analysis of routine MRI sequences might, however, be more suitable to reveal ALS-related pathological cerebral alterations. We investigated 10 ALS patients and 10 age- and(More)
Lymphatic vessels play an essential role in intestinal lipid uptake, and impairment of lymphatic vessel function leads to enhanced adipose tissue accumulation in patients with lymphedema and in genetic mouse models of lymphatic dysfunction. However, the effects of obesity on lymphatic function have been poorly studied. We investigated if and how adipose(More)
The aim of this study was to verify that subcutaneous lymph node transplantation inducing lymphatic regeneration is possible in healthy adult rats, in analogy to results obtained in other species. This rat model was used to determine the effects of lymph node fragmentation as well as sheep erythrocytes and platelet-rich plasma injection on the regeneration(More)
The authors report an abnormal prolonged restricted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) proton diffusion that persisted for more than 2 years in a 6.5-year-old boy with a progressive neurological disease characterized by developmental retardation, peripheral polyneuropathy, and bilateral optical nerve atrophy. The long-term restricted magnetic resonance(More)
