The identification of the autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy (ADNFLE) in 1994 was rapidly followed by that of other familial forms of non lesional partial epilepsies (familial temporal lobe epilepsy, autosomal dominant partial epilepsy with variable foci). Since then around forty families with ADNFLE have been described, most of them having(More)
It has been demonstrated that botulinum toxin type A (BTX-A) injections reduce spasticity and improve muscle growth in children with spasticity. It has been postulated that BTX-A allows the learning of more normal movement patterns. The aim of this study was to measure the effect of this treatment on functional ability, as measured by the Gross Motor(More)
In the monkey with an alumina focus in the primary motor area, proprioceptive afferents are crucial in triggering or modulating seizures. The reversible exclusion of these afferents by curarization results, depending on the level of activity of the focus, either in regularization of spontaneous seizure frequency and duration (recorded from the cortex), or(More)
This paper describes a study of the UPsuit, a proximal stability splint fabricated from Lycra, in the management of children with cerebral palsy. The splint improved posture and reduced involuntary movement immediately. The amount of functional improvement depended on the type and severity of impairments, the subject's attitude, their capacity for(More)
One hundred and eight patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the upper aerodigestive tract (UADT) (T3, T4, NO-N3; 17% stage II, 54% stage III, 27% stage IV) were given three courses of chemotherapy before any local treatment. The regimen consisted of cis-platinum 100 mg m-2 on day 1 and 5-fluorouracil 1000 mg m-2 on days 2-6; drugs were administered by(More)
AIMS To assess the cellular proliferation using the monoclonal antibody Ki-67, in paraffin embedded uveal melanomas irradiated by proton beam, as well as in non-irradiated uveal melanomas. METHODS 30 enucleated eyes were included for histopathological study and Ki-67 immunostaining. Patients were enucleated between 1991 and 1996 for uveal melanoma, 14(More)
A child is described who presented at 16 months with developmental delay and clinical features of the Russell-Silver syndrome. Chromosome analysis revealed trisomy-18 mosaicism. Only one other similar case has been reported in the literature. It is recommended that chromosomal studies continue to be included in the clinical investigation of children with(More)
