Survival of implanted fetal dopamine cells and neurologic improvement 12 to 46 months after transplantation for Parkinson's disease.
Fetal-tissue implants appear to offer long-term clinical benefit to some patients with advanced Parkinson's disease, and both immunosuppressed and nonimmunosuppression patients improved. Expand
Diffuse Lewy body disease and progressive dementia
- C. Burkhardt, C. Filley, B. Kleinschmidt-DeMasters, S. M. de la Monte, M. Norenberg, S. Schneck

It is suggested that DLBD may be another specific cause of progressive dementia and focal spongiform changes in the mesial temporal lobe were found in two cases. Expand
Zoster sine herpete, A clinical variant
Prolonged radicular pain without zoster rash combined with the presence of varicella‐zoster virus in the cerebrospinal fluid indicates that both men had zoster sine herpete, and strongly supports this syndrome as a clinical variant. Expand
Systemic fungal infections complicating renal transplantation and immunosuppressive therapy. Clinical, microbiologic, neurologic and pathologic features.
Cerebral neoplasms associated with renal transplantation.
This group of four cases will be considered with regard to the possibility of correct preoperative diagnosis, and some possible etiologic mechanisms in the development of these neoplasms will be discussed. Expand
Systemic fungal infections complicating renal transplantation and immunosuppressive therapy: Clinical, microbiologic, neurologic and pathologic features
There was no single aspect of the immunosuppressive or antibiotic therapy which uniquely predisposed to systemic fungal infections although such treatment undoubtedly accounted for the high incidence of these infections in the renal transplant patients. Expand
De-novo brain tumours in renal-transplant recipients.
It is suggested that tumour cells could arise in the brain itself or be carried there from other sites, and the possibility that neoplastic cells would grow more readily in this relatively immunologically privileged environment than in other tissues. Expand
Transplantation of human fetal dopamine cells for Parkinson's disease. Results at 1 year.
Results 12 months after surgery showed 42% improvement in left-hand speed before the first morning dose of drug and 40% greater response to drug therapy, while walking speed on an all-day basis improved 17% and reaction time was unaffected. Expand
CSF immunoglobulins in multiple sclerosis and other neurologic diseases. Measurement by electroimmunodiffusion.
The purpose of this paper is to relate the clinical experience with this test, to compare it with other methods for quantitation of CSF immunoglobulins, and to summarize the available information regarding the value ofCSF. Expand
INTRACRANIAL EPENDYMOMAS: FACTORS INFLUENCING PROGNOSIS.
The supratentorial ependymoma is considered by some to be the most common cerebral hemispheric glioma of children and, as with other relatively benign neoplasms, the prognosis is in a large par t dependent upon the location of the tumor. Expand
