A linkage and association of the VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) C2578A polymorphism and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) has been found in some studies. We analysed the C2578A polymorphism in sporadic ALS patients from a Chinese population. The polymorphism was analysed in 115 patients and 200 healthy individuals by amplifying across position(More)
More than 100 mutations in the Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (SOD) gene have been found, accounting for about 20% of familial ALS (FALS). However, few have been identified in Chinese patients with FALS. We present a five-generation Chinese family with FALS with a rare mutation in exon 4 of the Cu/Zn SOD gene codon position 105, converting serine to leucine.(More)
Angiogenin is associated with the pathogenesis of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Here, we quenced the coding region of the angiogenin gene in genomic DNA from 207 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (129 diabetic peripheral neuropathy patients and 78 diabetic non-neuropathy patients) and 268 healthy controls. All subjects were from the Han population of(More)
Multiple mononeuropathy is an unusual form of peripheral neuropathy involving two or more nerve trunks. It is a syndrome with many different causes. We reviewed the clinical, electrophysiological and nerve biopsy findings of 14 patients who suffered from multiple mononeuropathy in our clinic between January 2009 and June 2013. Patients were diagnosed with(More)
Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1A (CMT1A) is caused by duplication of the peripheral myelin protein 22 (PMP22) gene on chromosome 17. It is the most common inherited demyelinating neuropathy. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is a common metabolic disorder that frequently causes predominantly sensory neuropathy. In this study, we report the occurrence of CMT1A in(More)
This study investigated the association between polymorphisms in vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) gene (-1558C-T, -1190A-G and -1154A-G) and age at onset of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Between July 2000 and June 2004 we conducted a clinical genetic study at Peking University Third Hospital, China. The analyses included a total of 93 ALS(More)
