Evidence for more widespread cerebral pathology in early HD: An MRI-based morphometric analysis
The frequency of CTassessed conjugate eye deviation toward the affected hemisphere in a consecutive series of acute stroke patients treated with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rt-PA) and the administration of the simple line cancellation test is highly sensitive in assessing hemispatial neglect in patients with acute nondominant hemisphere stroke is evaluated.

An epidemiologic survey of human alveolar echinococcosis in southwestern Germany. Römerstein Study Group.
If the prevalence of 40/100,000 for active cases would be representative for the rural population in high endemicity areas, the current number of AE cases in southwestern Germany is considerably higher than previously suspected. Expand
Risk Factors for Alveolar Echinococcosis in Humans
A case-control study of alveolar echinococcosis cases in Germany identifies several risk factors for the disease.
Riluzole in Huntington's disease: a 3‐year, randomized controlled study
A randomized double‐blind trial of riluzole in Huntington's disease finds the efficacy of this antiexcitotoxic drug in slowing disease progression is investigated. Expand
A randomised, double blind, multicentre trial of octreotide in moderate to severe acute pancreatitis
This trial shows no benefit of octreotide in the treatment of acute pancreatitis, and randomly assigned patients were well matched with respect to pretreatment characteristics. Expand
Risk factors for infections of the oropharynx and the respiratory tract in patients with acute leukemia.
The degree of neutropenia was significantly correlated with the risk of infection, which was influenced by the microbiologic state of the oropharynx, and patients with gram negative bacilli had significantly more days with infection at all levels of neutrostenia than patients without gram-negative b Bacilli.

Once-daily versus thrice-daily dosing of netilmicin in combination with beta-lactam antibiotics as empirical therapy for febrile neutropenic patients.
Once-daily dosing of netilmicin appears to be as effective and as safe as thrice- daily dosing, but is unlikely to further improve the response of febrile neutropenic patients to empirical therapy. Expand
Supportive pentoxifylline in falciparum malaria: no effect on tumor necrosis factor alpha levels or clinical outcome: a prospective, randomized, placebo-controlled study.
The results suggest that POF is not useful as a routine adjunct to the standard therapy of falciparum malaria, and the study was terminated earlier than planned. Expand
The efficacy and safety of Crataegus extract WS® 1442 in patients with heart failure: The SPICE trial
A large morbidity/mortality trial was performed onCrataegus preparations as an add‐on‐treatment for cancer treatment and found them to be safe and effective. Expand
