We performed a double-blind, placebo-controlled study to evaluate the efficacy of low and high dose of intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIG) in relapsing/remitting (RR) multiple sclerosis (MS). Patients (n = 49) with clinical definite RR MS were randomly allocated to three groups and treated with 0.2 g/kg (n = 17) or 0.4 g/kg (n = 15) once a month of IVIG and(More)
Based on its ability to provide quantitative information about tissue microstructure, diffusion tensor magnetic resonance imaging (DT-MRI) might be a valuable approach to improve the reliability of segmentation of the various brain tissues. In this study, a fully automated and easy-to-implement technique based on 2D histogram analysis of DT-MRI derived(More)
Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy of normal appearing white matter (NAWM) was performed in 25 first-degree relatives of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). In relatives of MS patients, insignificant trends in the NAA/Cho ratio (to be lower) and in the Cho/Cr ratio (to be higher) were found when compared with healthy controls. These results(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess differences in magnetisation transfer ratio (MTR) analysis of normal appearing white matter (NAWM) in patients with familial multiple sclerosis (MS) and those with sporadic MS. METHODS 10 patients with familial MS, 10 patients with sporadic MS, and 10 healthy subjects were included in the study. Groups were matched according to the(More)
Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a hereditary disease related to abnormalities in the structure and function of peroxisomes. The nature of disorder arises from defective process of beta-oxidation of very-long-chain fatty acids and their accumulation in various organs. ALD may present as a few phenotypes urologic symptomatology of which depends on proportions(More)
