Evaluating The Relationship Between Diadochokinesis And Severity Of Dysphagia As It Relates To Forced Vital Capacity In Individuals With Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
A clinical assessment battery that can predict swallowing impairment in ALS is developed and potential predictive relationships between dysphagia ratings and other measures in the evaluation and treatment of ALS are investigated. Expand
Motor and extra-motor gray matter atrophy in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: quantitative meta-analyses of voxel-based morphometry studies
The present meta-analysis provides convergent evidence that ALS is a multisystem degenerative disorder that is accompanied by a unique and widespread pattern of robust cortical GM atrophy. Expand
Outcomes of Enteral Feeding in Motor Neurone Disease
A positive impact of enteral feeding on quality of life but not on survival is demonstrated and the lack of survival advantage should however, not dissuade clinicians from offering enteral feed to patients with MND who manifest dysphagia and/or malnutrition. Expand
Regulatory T-lymphocytes mediate amyotrophic lateral sclerosis progression and survival
It is suggested that Tregs and Th2 lymphocytes influence disease progression rates, and early reduced FoxP3 levels could be used to identify rapidly progressing patients. Expand
Investigating cognitive impairments in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) using eye movements and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
Investigating cognitive impairments in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis using saccadic eye movements and functional magnetic resonance imaging and studying the oculomotor circuit in ALS finds evidence of an ALS-FTLD continuum. Expand
Sclerosi Laterale Amiotrofica, cambiamento di vita e rappresentazione dell’assistenza: uno studio quali-quantitativo su pazienti e caregiver
Patients and caregivers show a cyclic pattern of change of life based on the progression of illness, the emotional and behavioral reactions to the disease and the way of coping through this. TheExpand
Epidémiologie comparée de la Sclérose Latérale Amyotrophique en Limousin, Franc - Uruguay
La Sclerose Laterale Amyotrophique (SLA) est la plus frequente des maladies du motoneurone chez l'adulte. Cette affection neurodegenerative touche a la fois les motoneurones peripheriques localisesExpand
ALS multidisciplinary clinic and survival
It is found that in Southern Italy management of ALS by multidisciplinary clinics does not improve survival, regardless of site of symptoms onset, and no beneficial effect was present among bulbar onset ALS. Expand

ALS seems to be a uniform problem across Europe, with age-specific incidence rates showing a progressive increase up to the 70–79 age group, and no consistent epidemiological clues concerning the cause of ALS have been found in epidemiological studies. Expand
Investigating the Contribution of White Matter Hyperintensities and Cortical Thickness to Empathy in Neurodegenerative and Cerebrovascular Diseases
The results suggest that cortical atrophy and WMH may be associated with empathy deficits in neurodegenerative and cerebrovascular diseases. Expand
