Although experience-dependent structural changes have been found in adult gray matter, there is little evidence for such changes in white matter. Using diffusion imaging, we detected a localized increase in fractional anisotropy, a measure of microstructure, in white matter underlying the intraparietal sulcus following training of a complex visuo-motor(More)
Medial frontal cortex (MFC) is crucial when actions have to be inhibited, reprogrammed, or selected under conflict, but the precise mechanism by which it operates is unclear. Importantly, how and when the MFC influences the primary motor cortex (M1) during action selection is unknown. Using paired-pulse transcranial magnetic stimulation, we investigated(More)
This multicenter, randomized, controlled, double-blind, phase III study in 704 patients with chronic hepatitis C infection compared treatment with consensus interferon (CIFN), a non-natural recombinant type-1 interferon, with a standard regimen of recombinant interferon alfa-2b (IFN-alpha2b). Patients were randomized to receive CIFN at doses of 3 microg or(More)
Sir, We appreciate the interest of Asfour et al. in our article. Although the issue of delayed cord clamping is still controversial because of the subsequent increased rate of fetal jaundice, we agree that it has major fetal benefits, mainly including the increase of fetal haemoglobin level in the first 6 months of life. Conversely, the effect of delayed(More)
To assess the safety and efficacy of consensus interferon (IFN-Con-1), 55 patients with chronic hepatitis C infection were treated with either 3, 6, 9, 12, or 15 microg IFN-Con-1 s.c. three times a week for 24 weeks, followed by 24 weeks of observation. There was a dose-response relationship with respect to the number of patients with normalized ALT(More)
