BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE This study was designed to assess the quality of life after an active poststroke period of rehabilitation and to investigate the possibility of a return to a working environment for those still of working age. METHODS The study was conducted on 180 consecutive patients affected by stroke who were hospitalized for the first time and(More)
BACKGROUND In the early stage of stroke, depression appears to be linked to certain brain areas. The study evaluated the importance of the side of the lesion in depressed patients 3 years after their first stroke. METHOD Patients who had suffered a stroke and been discharged after rehabilitation were identified by hospital records. We interviewed 180(More)
Paraoxonase, an enzyme associated with high density lipoproteins (HDL), plays an important role in the anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties exerted by HDL. Increasing evidence supports a role of free radicals and oxidative stress in the inflammatory processes and in the pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS). The aim of this study was to further(More)
We compared the efficacy and safety of pergolide and bromocriptine in 57 patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) with a declining response to levodopa therapy in a single-blind, crossover study. Patients were placed randomly on the sequence bromocriptine-pergolide (12 + 12 weeks) or vice versa. Regular evaluations using the New York University Parkinson's(More)
A single-blind, crossover study was carried out to compare the efficacy and safety of pergolide against that of bromocriptine in 57 patients with Parkinson's disease who showed a declining response to levodopa therapy. Patients were randomly assigned to receive either bromocriptine followed by pergolide, or pergolide followed by bromocriptine. Both drugs(More)
Oxidative damage induced by free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) have been suggested to play an important role in the development of autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (MS) disease and it has been hypothesised that oxidative injury could mediate demyelination and axonal injury in MS subjects. In our study, we compared intracellular(More)
Twenty subjects suffering from chronic renal failure and undergoing continual treatment by haemodialysis were examined, and the following values assessed: maximum conduction velocity of the sensory and motor fibres of the common peroneal nerve, the relative electromyographic parameters, and the sympathetic skin response at the level of the foot. The results(More)
