However, among the two tests, the one that is most affected by culture is still unknown. The purpose of this study was to(More)
Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is an acquired immune-mediated neuropathy. It presents with a course of progression which may be slow and steady or step-wise or relapsing. Sensory ataxic polyneuropathy may be the only clinical manifestation of this disease. Treatment with interferon beta1a (INF beta1a) has been tried with different(More)
The Paced Auditory Serial Addition Test (PASAT) is one of the most used neuropsychological tests to assess information processing speed and working memory in brain injured patients. This study was carried out with the purpose of obtaining normative data for the PASAT-3″ in a healthy Argentinean population, which would result in a reference control(More)
Systemic autoinflammatory diseases are genetic disorders characterized by seemingly unprovoked inflammation, without major involvement of the adaptive immune system. Among them it is recognized the TNF receptor associated periodic syndrome (TRAPS) caused by mutations in the TNFRSF1A gene and characterized by symptoms such as recurrent high fevers, rash,(More)
Interferon beta (IFNβ) is used in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS) because it can reduce relapse rate and lesion formation on MRI and can slow progression of the disease 1-3. As has been observed with other protein-based drugs, some patients develop neutralizing antibodies (NAbs) during chronic administration of IFNβ. The proportion of patients(More)
