INTRODUCTION Intermittent oral delivery of levodopa is a major contributing factor for motor complications in Parkinson's disease (PD). Continuous infusion of levodopa-carbidopa intestinal gel (LCIG) into the jejunum using a portable pump via percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) improves motor complications and quality of life (QoL). OBJECTIVES To(More)
Probable and possible MS cases with a debut during the years 1950-1964 within the city of Gothenburg were identified (312 cases). This corresponds to an incidence of 5.3 per 100,000. The material was stratified according to diagnostic probability into three categories. For the final analysis cases with the lowest diagnostic probability were omitted (about(More)
The Hypoglossal Nerve in Carotid A rterial Reconstructions • The importance of hypoglossal nerve in performing carotid arterial reconstructions has been illustrated by two case reports. Unilateral palsy is troublesome but bilateral damage may result in upper airway obstruction. Simple surgical maneuvers consisting of division of the sternocleidomastoid(More)
Clinical trials rigorously demonstrate the efficacy of new products and justify their marketing. However, it is only after use in real-life settings that the clinical value (effectiveness) of a new treatment is fully known. The purpose of this review was to summarise the effectiveness data for bupropion SR as an aid to smoking cessation. Available reports(More)
Comorbid depressive symptoms in restless legs syndrome (RLS) remain a treatment challenge, as some antidepressants aggravate RLS symptoms. Preliminary data in depressive patients suggest antidepressant properties of ropinirole. The present study investigates the effects of ropinirole immediate release (IR) on depressive symptoms and RLS severity. A(More)

We report on four mental retarded girls with typical clinical signs of Rett syndrome. Rett syndrome is an X-linked neurodevelopment disorder which develops after a period of normal development at the age of 6 to 18 months, affecting 1/10 000 - 15 000 girls. Recently, the MeCP2-gene encoding the methyl-CpG-binding protein 2 has been shown to be mutated in 80(More)
Lung findings among 13 workers employed in a carbon black plant are presented. The concentrations of respirable dust at the work place exceeded the MAC for dust free of quartz. X-rays show disseminated small irregular and large shadows with slow progress. In two cases lung tissue was examinated histologically. Both accumulation of carbon black and(More)
