In order to clarify cognitive functions in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), we performed a new controlled neuropsychological study. IQ (WISC-R), verbal skills (fluency, confrontation naming and syntax comprehension) and memory abilities (BEM) were studied in two matched groups; 24 DMD children and 17 spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) children aged 12-16 yr. A(More)
We analysed the reading abilities and processing of 21 children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), 11 matched children suffering from spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and 42 children receiving normal education. The principal result observed was that the DMD children exhibited a reading age which was significantly lower than the SMA children compared with(More)
Two hundred and thirty-six adult epileptic outpatients were classified twice: firstly according to the time of seizures reported by the patient or his family in diurnal, nocturnal, awaking and diffuse epilepsies (Es) and secondly according to the sensitivity to sleep or waking of the interictal paroxysmal activities (PA) observed during a polysomnographic(More)
Among tau phosphorylation sites, some phosphoepitopes referred to as abnormal ones are exclusively found on tau aggregated into filaments in Alzheimer's disease. Recent data suggested that molecular mechanisms similar to those encountered during mitosis may play a role in abnormal tau phosphorylation. In particular, TG-3 phosphoepitope is associated with(More)
In 242 neurologically symptomless patients with at least one non-occlusive carotid stenosis on ultrasonography (continuous wave doppler and echotomography-B mode imaging) 171 carotids showed 0-50% stenosis, 150 showed 50-75% stenosis, and 78 showed more than 75% stenosis. The mean follow-up was 29.4 months, with stroke and death as end points. Of the 56(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Three-dimensional time-of-flight (TOF) MR angiography has been evaluated in the follow-up of intracranial aneurysms treated with Guglielmi detachable coils (GDCs) with good results. Some of the studies used contrast material in addition to the 3D TOF MR technique and others did not. We assessed the usefulness of contrast material with(More)
The authors report the retrospective study of a medico-surgical series of 161 patients with intracranial meningiomas, diagnosed over a period of 9 years, with a follow-up period varying from 18 months to 9 years. Out of 185 cases studied, 24 were excluded because information or perspective were inadequate. Of the 161 cases retained, 133 (82.6%) were given(More)
The objective of this research was to identify the psychological and physiological variables that differentiate persons reporting masticatory muscle pain (MMP) from normal controls (NC). This study examined the characteristics of 35 MMP patients in comparison to 35 age-, sex-, and weight-matched NCs. All subjects completed a series of standardized(More)
High-dose therapy followed by autologous purged stem cell transplantation and doxorubicin-based chemotherapy in patients with advanced follicular lymphoma: a randomized multicenter study by the GOELAMS with final results after a median follow-up of 9 years Autologous stem cell transplantation (ASCT) as first-line therapy for follicular lymphoma (FL) remains(More)
