Neutrophils are known to mediate injury in acute ischemic stroke especially during reperfusion. Migration of neutrophils into regions of ischemic injury involves binding to the endothelial cell's intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM-1) through the leukocyte integrin, CD11/CD18. We studied the potential for neuroprotection with a humanized antibody that(More)
Volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) is a novel radiation technique, which can achieve highly conformal dose distributions with improved target volume coverage and sparing of normal tissues compared with conventional radiotherapy techniques. VMAT also has the potential to offer additional advantages, such as reduced treatment delivery time compared with(More)
Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) encompasses a spectrum of related neurodegenerative disorders with behavioral, language, and motor phenotypes for which there are currently no effective therapies. This is the second of two articles that summarize the presentations and discussions that occurred at two symposia in 2011 sponsored by the Frontotemporal(More)
BACKGROUND In preclinical studies, davunetide promoted microtubule stability and reduced tau phosphorylation. Because progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) is linked to tau pathology, davunetide could be a treatment for PSP. We assessed the safety and efficacy of davunetide in patients with PSP. METHODS In a double-blind, parallel group, phase 2/3 trial,(More)
