OBJECTIVE: To test the prognostic value of brain MRI in addition to clinical and electrophysiological variables in post-cardiac arrest (CA) patients, we explored data from the randomized Neuroprotect post-CA trial (NCT02541591). METHODS: In this trial brain MRI's were prospectively obtained. We calculated receiver operating characteristic curves for the average Apparent Diffusion Coefficient (ADC) value and percentage of brain voxels with an ADC value < 650 x 10-6 mm2 /s and < 450 x 10-6 mm2 /s...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether: 1) the immunofluorescence (IF) is a reproducible technique in detecting misfolded α-synuclein (α-syn) in skin nerves; and subsequently 2) IF and RT-QuIC (both in skin and CSF) show a comparable in vivo diagnostic accuracy in distinguish synucleinopathies (SOPs) from non-synucleinopathies (non-SOPs) in a large cohort of patients. METHODS: We prospectively recruited 90 patients fulfilling clinical and instrumental diagnostic criteria for all SOPs variants and non-SOPs (mainly including Alzheimer disease, tauopathies, and vascular parkinsonism or dementia)...

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to test whether patients who died from sudden unexpected death in epilepsy (SUDEP) had an abnormal cardiac autonomic response to sympathetic stimulation by hyperventilation. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective, observational, case-control study of a group of patients who died from SUDEP and controls who were matched with the patients for epilepsy type, drug resistance, sex, age at electroencephalogram recording, age at onset of epilepsy, and duration of epilepsy...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of single sensory impairment (SSI; visual or auditory) or dual sensory impairment (DSI; visual and auditory) on dementia and longitudinal changes of neuropsychological test scores. METHODS: In this nationwide, prospective, community-based elderly cohort study, Korean Longitudinal Study on Cognitive Aging and Dementia (KLOSCAD), 6,520 elderly individuals (58-101 year) representing the general population were included. We defined visual and auditory sensory impairment via self-report questionnaire: 932 had a normal sensory function, 2957 had a SSI, and 2631 had a DSI...

ObjectiveTo determine whether the intravenous infusion of adrenomedullin, a potent vasodilator belonging to calcitonin family of peptides, provokes attacks of migraine in patients.MethodsTwenty migraine without aura patients participated in a placebo-controlled and double-blinded clinical study. In a randomized and crossover design the patients received an intravenous infusion of human adrenomedullin (19.9 picomole/kg/min) or placebo (saline) administrated via an automated intravenous pump (20 minutes). The patients participated in two study days with washout period of minimum of seven days...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of rituximab on retinal atrophy in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), we performed serial optical coherence tomography (OCT) scans among a cohort of RRMS patients on rituximab, and compared rates of ganglion cell+inner plexiform layer (GCIPL) atrophy to those observed among age- and sex-matched glatiramer acetate (GA)- and natalizumab-treated RRMS patients, and healthy controls (HCs). METHODS: In this observational study, patients with RRMS treated with a single disease-modifying therapy, and HCs, were followed with serial OCT for a median duration of 2...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate whether previously reported increasing incidence of pregnancy-associated stroke (PAS) is observed in chart-validated register data in Finland. In an exploratory analysis, we studied risk factors for PAS. METHODS: We performed a retrospective population-based cohort study and nested case-control study in Finland 1987-2016. The Medical Birth Register (MBR) was linked with the Hospital Discharge Register to identify women with incident stroke (ischemic stroke, cerebral venous thrombosis, intracerebral or subarachnoid hemorrhage) during pregnancy or puerperium...

OBJECTIVE: We tested the hypothesis that plasma neurofilament light chain (NfL) identifies asymptomatic carriers of familial frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD)-causing mutations at risk of disease progression. METHODS: Baseline plasma NfL concentrations were measured with Simoa in original (n = 277) and validation (n = 297) cohorts. C9orf72 , GRN and MAPT mutation carriers and non-carriers from the same families were classified by disease severity [asymptomatic, prodromal and full phenotype] using the CDR® Dementia Staging Instrument plus behavior and language domains from the National Alzheimer's Disease Coordinating Center FTLD module (CDR® +NACC-FTLD)...

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether cortical hyperexcitability was more prominent in cognitively impaired amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) patients. METHODS: Threshold tracking transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) was utilised to assess cortical excitability, while cognitive function determined by the Edinburgh Cognitive and Behavioural ALS Screen (ECAS). Cognitive impairment was defined by ECAS<105. ALS patients, defined by the Awaji criteria, were prospectively recruited...

OBJECTIVE: To assess support for a causal relationship between hemostatic measures and migraine susceptibility using genetic instrumental analysis. METHODS: Two-sample Mendelian randomization (MR) instrumental leveraging available genome-wide association study (GWAS) summary statistics was applied to hemostatic measures as potential causal for migraine and its subtypes, migraine with aura (MA) and migraine without aura (MO). Twelve blood-based measures of hemostasis were examined, including plasma level or activity of eight hemostatic factors and two fibrinopeptides together with two hemostasis clinical tests...
