For this reason, we studied the content of NGF in CSF samples from patients with diseases in which neuroimmonological mechanisms seem to be involved (multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer disease, chronic relapsing polyradiculoneuritis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and tumors of the… CONTINUE READING
