Multiple sclerosis (MS) has a multifactorial etiology located at the interaction point of environmental factors--nutritional, geographic, infectious, etc.--with genetic factors, which confers susceptibility to disease or alters its development. This research presents a case study focused on complex assessment of a patient using clinical and functional(More)
Gait, as an expression of the locomotive system, needs a complex biomechanical analysis, which allows the description of multiple sclerosis (MS) specific patterns, MS patients having a polymorphism of motion patterns. The studied group consisted of 13 MS patients with gait disorders, average age of the group was of 36 years. The evaluation of the subjects(More)
In the last years there were many authors that suggest the existence of an association between different components of metabolic syndrome and various cancers. Two important components of metabolic syndrome are hyperglycemia and hyperinsulinemia. Both of them had already been linked with the increased risk of pancreatic, breast, endometrial or prostate(More)
UNLABELLED Gait is a motor activity that requires understanding the dynamics and functional anatomical elements that make possible its cyclical conduct. Patients with multiple sclerosis record impaired balance and gait due to the process of demyelination, disorders that can be estimated by quantifying neuromuscular and cortical parameters. The aim of this(More)
UNLABELLED The study presents the case of a patient with progressive multiple sclerosis in relapses (PPMS) and proposes a comprehensive neuromuscular and biomechanical evaluation in order to achieve a predictive picture of gait evolution and balance disorders with disease progression. PATIENT AND METHODS The evaluation included: clinical, functional and(More)
ABSTRACT The development and function of the nervous system is dependent on many growth factors and their signaling. Tropomyosin-receptor-kinase receptor family controls synaptic strength and plasticity in the mammalian nervous system. Dysregulation of Tropomyosin-receptor-kinase receptors signaling can lead to neural developmental disorders and has been(More)
