Arginine vasopressin (AVP) was determined in plasma and lumbar CSF from 46 patients with Parkinson's disease, dementia, cerebrovascular disease, multiple sclerosis and other, mostly peripheral neurological disorders.

There was a good correlation between the plasma and the CSF values in most patients. No sex difference could be found. A slight decrease of the CSF values… CONTINUE READING
