Aberrant neurofilament (NF) phosphorylation in the soma of the ventral horn neurons of neonatal rat spinal cord is observed following exposure to cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients suffering from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). CSF samples from ALS and non-ALS neurological patients were injected into the spinal subarachnoid space of 3 day old rat… (More)

Optic Neuritis (ON) proceeds to multiple sclerosis (MS) in a considerable number of patients. The blink reflex (BR) and somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) are useful non-invasive tests that can detect silent lesions in the central nervous system in patients with clinically suspect MS. In the present study, the BR and SSEP were done in 20 healthy controls… (More)
