Focal lesions of brainstem, thalamus, and subcortical white matter may cause movement disorders that are clinically indistinguishable from cerebellar symptoms. It is suspected that ataxia in these cases is due to damage of efferent or afferent pathways of the cerebellum. However, the precise anatomical correlate often remains undefined. We used(More)
The phenotypical variability of sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (sCJD) is largely explained by the methionine (M)/valine (V) polymorphism at codon 129 of the prion protein gene and two types of prion protein strains, allowing a molecular classification of sCJD variants. The most common sCJD subtype, typically characterized by rapid progressive dementia,(More)
Background. Postural instability in Parkinson's disease (PD) increases the risk of falls and is not improved by pharmacological therapy. Objective. We performed a double-blind, randomized sham-controlled study to test the effects of stochastic resonance (whole body vibration) therapy on postural stability in PD. Methods. Fifty-six PD participants were(More)
An analysis was carried out of material biopsied during fiberoptic bronchoscopic examination of 289 patients suspected of lung malignant disorders were present more often in males. In the group of patients older than 40 years the most often diagnosed malignant process was squamous cell carcinoma. A high correlation of clinical suspicion of malignant process(More)
