OBJECTIVES Previous studies have reported an increased risk for epileptic seizures in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients. However, data on the pathogenesis of seizures remain inconclusive. The aim of our study is to evaluate prevalence, clinical and paraclinical features of epileptic attacks in our MS cohort and to search MS-specific risk factors for(More)
Amongst the varied symptomology of multiple sclerosis is to be found the alteration of higher functions (cognitive deficit), which has considerable repercussions on the quality of life of patients. The old descriptions of the disease rarely differentiate cognitive affectation from the more general category of "mental symptoms", which also includes a broad(More)

Acquired supranuclear ocular motor paresis (ASOMP) is a rare disorder characterized by impairment in volitional and reflex saccades and smooth pursuit in one or(More)
OBJECTIVE Vitamin D deficiency has been linked to increased risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) and poor outcome. However, the specific role that vitamin D plays in MS still remains unknown. In order to identify potential mechanisms underlying vitamin D effects in MS, we profiled epigenetic changes in vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene to identify genomic regulatory(More)
