Using the ImmunoChip custom genotyping array, we analyzed 14,498 subjects with multiple sclerosis and 24,091 healthy controls for 161,311 autosomal variants and identified 135 potentially associated regions (P < 1.0 × 10(-4)). In a replication phase, we combined these data with previous genome-wide association study (GWAS) data from an independent 14,802(More)
The patient in this report had a parasagittal meningioma with an intrasinus extension that presented with features of benign intracranial hypertension and no focal neurological deficit or seizure. The meningioma was managed with a combination of endovascular stent placement and radiotherapy. The authors describe the investigation and technical aspects of(More)
Our objective was to better understand UK-wide practice in managing sialorrhoea in motor neuron disease among specialist clinicians. We used a survey of neurologists in the UK with a special interest in motor neuron disease designed to establish clinicians' attitudes towards treatment options and resources for sialorrhoea management. Twenty-three clinicians(More)
BACKGROUND Although a molecular diagnosis is possible in most patients having Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT), recessively inherited and axonal neuropathies still present a diagnostic challenge. OBJECTIVE To determine the cause of axonal CMT type 2 in 3 siblings. DESIGN Case report. SETTING Academic research. PARTICIPANTS Three siblings who(More)
The fetal lung secretes significant quantities of surfactant during late gestation to prepare for initiation of respiration at birth. However, the mechanism by which this occurs has not been determined. Since Ca2+-phosphatidylserine (PS)-dependent protein kinase C has been implicated in surfactant secretion in adult lung, the present study was done to(More)
BACKGROUND Cervical dystonia (CD) can be effectively managed by a combination of botulinum neurotoxin A (BoNT-A) and conventional therapy (skeletal muscle relaxants and rehabilitative therapy), but the costs of different interventions in the UK vary. METHODS A budget impact model was developed from the UK payer perspective with a 5-year time horizon to(More)
Failure to clear oral secretions can be debilitating for patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), but the treatment of this symptom is poorly defined and there is no consensus on best practice. The objective of this study was to identify the treatments that are commonly prescribed, and to describe how experienced clinicians manage a patient with(More)
