We report the 1 year follow-up of 3 children affected by non-paraneoplastic Opsoclonus-Myoclonus Syndrome (OMS) resistant to conventional therapies (steroids, ACTH and intravenous immunoglobulins) who were treated with an anti CD20 monoclonal antibody (rituximab). Treatment response was recorded on the basis of an international score at 0, 3, 6, 9 and 12(More)
A powerful approach to analysing quantum systems with dimensionality d>1 involves adding a weak coupling to an array of one-dimensional (1D) chains. The resultant quasi-1D (q1D) systems can exhibit long-range order at low temperature, but are heavily influenced by interactions and disorder due to their large anisotropies. Real q1D materials are therefore(More)
Testicular cancer (TC) is the most common solid cancer in men between the third and fourth decade of life. Due to successful treatment approaches, TC survivors (TCSs) have long life expectancy, but with numerous potential long-term sequelae, including sexual dysfunction. We investigated predictors of long-term normal sexual function (SF) recovery in TCSs.(More)
The momentum and temperature dependence of the lifetimes of acoustic phonons in the elemental superconductors lead and niobium were determined by resonant spin-echo spectroscopy with neutrons. In both elements, the superconducting energy gap extracted from these measurements was found to converge with sharp anomalies originating from Fermi-surface nesting(More)
In this paper the authors aim to assess the results of psychomotor treatment of 5 patients with cranial injuries admitted to the Division of Infantile Neuropsychiatry at Gaslini Hospital from 1983 to 1985 and to evaluate the role of this treatment in a pathology with multiple, complex functional disorders. Evolution was excellent in 3 out of 5 patients who(More)
