Neurofilaments in the diagnosis of motoneuron diseases: a prospective study on 455 patients
Objectives Biomarkers for the diagnosis of motoneuron diseases (MND) are urgently needed to improve the diagnostic pathway, patient stratification and monitoring. The aim of this study was toExpand

14-3-3 adaptor proteins recruit AID to 5′-AGCT-3′-rich switch regions for class switch recombination
Class switch DNA recombination (CSR) is the mechanism that diversifies the biological effector functions of antibodies. Activation-induced cytidine deaminase (AID), a key protein in CSR, targetsExpand

Tauopathies with parkinsonism: clinical spectrum, neuropathologic basis, biological markers, and treatment options
Tauopathies with parkinsonism represent a spectrum of disease entities unified by the pathologic accumulation of hyperphosphorylated tau protein fragments within the central nervous system. TheseExpand

TDP-43 in cerebrospinal fluid of patients with frontotemporal lobar degeneration and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
BACKGROUND Recently, TAR DNA-binding protein 43 (TDP-43) was identified as the major component of ubiquitin-positive tau-negative neuronal and glial inclusions in the most common form ofExpand

Subcutaneous immunoglobulin in responders to intravenous therapy with chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy
We hypothesized that subcutaneous administration of immunoglobulins (SCIG) in chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) is feasible, safe and superior to treatment with salineExpand

Predicting primary progressive aphasias with support vector machine approaches in structural MRI data
We used support vector machine classification on grey matter density maps obtained by voxel-based morphometry analysis to discriminate PPA subtypes (44 patients: 16 nonfluent/agrammatic variant PPA) from 20 healthy controls (matched for sample size, age, and gender). Expand
