This report presents the work of the Task Force and proposes classification systems and definitions of response to therapy designed to achieve more uniformity in recording and reporting clinical trials and outcomes research. Expand
Mutations in Kir2.1 Cause the Developmental and Episodic Electrical Phenotypes of Andersen's Syndrome
Findings suggest that Kir2.1 plays an important role in developmental signaling in addition to its previously recognized function in controlling cell excitability in skeletal muscle and heart. Expand
Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy. Clinical characteristics, course, and recommendations for diagnostic criteria.
It is suggested that chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy may be more heterogeneous than previously emphasized and proposed diagnostic criteria that allow for the heterogeneity but at the same time provide for a more consistent approach to better establish the natural history of this condition.

Guillain-Barré syndrome and variants.
Guillain-Barré syndrome is characterized by rapidly evolving ascending weakness, mild sensory loss, and hyporeflexia or areflexia, and the pharyngeal-cervical-brachial pattern. Expand
Efficacy of minocycline in patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: a phase III randomised trial
The finding that minocycline has a harmful effect on patients with ALS has implications for trials of minocyCline in patients with other neurological disorders, and for how potential neuroprotective agents are screened for use in Patients with ALS. Expand
Interferon-alpha/beta-mediated innate immune mechanisms in dermatomyositis.
An innate immune response characterized by plasmacytoid dendritic cell infiltration and interferon-alpha/beta inducible gene and protein expression may be an important part of the pathogenesis of dermatomyositis, as it appears to be in systemic lupus erythematosus. Expand
Practice parameter: Thymectomy for autoimmune myasthenia gravis (an evidence-based review)
The goal is to develop evidence-based recommendations for clinicians considering thymectomy for patients with nonthymomatous autoimmune MG by performing a systematic review and analysis of the literature. Expand
