We report the results of clinical and polysomnographic investigations on 39 consecutive multiple system atrophy (MSA) patients. Twenty-seven patients (69%) reported nocturnal motor paroxysmal episodes related to dreams, suggesting the clinical diagnosis of REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD). In 12 of them (44%), RBD preceded the clinical onset of the disease(More)
OBJECTIVE To define changes in phenotype and functional responses of reconstituting T cells in patients with aggressive multiple sclerosis (MS) treated with ablative chemotherapy and autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). METHODS Clinical and brain magnetic resonance imaging measures of disease activity were monitored serially in(More)

Polysomnographic studies were performed in all patients. Whereas all four patients with multiple system atrophy complained of sleep related episodes(More)
During development, nephron progenitor cells (NPC) are induced to differentiate by WNT9b signals from the ureteric bud. Although nephrogenesis ends in the perinatal period, acute kidney injury (AKI) elicits repopulation of damaged nephrons. Interestingly, embryonic NPC infused into adult mice with AKI are incorporated into regenerating tubules. Since(More)
