OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of ropinirole on selected nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD), including anxiety, depressive symptoms, sleep disturbances/excessive daytime sleepiness, and sexual functions. METHODS Forty-four consecutive PD patients with or without motor complications (MC+ group and MC- group, respectively); 6-month prospective(More)
A prospective 3-year randomized study comparing conservative and surgical treatment of spondylotic cervical myelopathy to establish predictive factors for outcome after conservative treatment and surgery. The clinical, electrophysiological and imaging parameters were examined to reveal how they characterized the clinical outcome. Statistically, pair-wise(More)
We retrospectively evaluated a set of 205 children with autism and compared it to the partial sub-set of 71 (34.6%) children with a history of regression. From 71 children with regression, signs of epileptic processes were present in 43 (60.6%), 28 (65.12%) suffered clinical epileptic seizures, and 15 (34.9%) just had an epileptiform abnormality on the EEG.(More)
The aim of this study was to categorize speech problems in autistic children in a manner allowing recognition of associated risk factors. We were specifically interested in the role of epilepsy and epileptiform activity in EEG in autistic patients since these dynamic processes can influence each other. We combined subtypes of autism with degrees of their(More)
The primary aim of the research was to find the delay between the first symptoms of an autistic disorder being recognized by parents and diagnosis in our centre. A secondary objective was to evaluate the number of contacts with professionals (physicians, teachers, and speech therapists) in which parents pointed out special manifestations seen in children(More)
Although numerous clinical, laboratory, and pharmacological variables have been reported as significant risk factors for critical illness polyneuromyopathy (CIPM), there is still no consensus on the aetiology of this condition. Objectives of the study were to assess the clinical and electrophysiological incidence and risk factors for CIPM.A cohort of(More)

The Internet-based system DIOS addresses the issues of anti-tumor chemotherapy and its evaluation. The repository of chemotherapeutic regimens (CHRs) stored in XML structured format constitutes the core of the system. Several applications have been created based on this repository, in order to allow users to browse current CHRs and procedures of planning(More)
INTRODUCTION The prognosis of patients hospitalized with acute heart failure (AHF) is poor and risk stratification may help clinicians guide care. The objectives of the Acute Heart Failure Database (AHEAD) registry are to assess patient characteristics, etiology, treatment and outcome of AHF. METHODS The AHEAD main registry includes patients hospitalized(More)
BACKGROUND Patients aged 65 years and older represent the majority of patients with metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC). However, this patient population is often underrepresented in clinical trials and probably undertreated in the clinical practice. METHODS We have analysed the outcomes of 3,187 mCRC patients treated with first-line bevacizumab based on(More)
