In 1908, Oluf Bang and Vilhelm Ellerman laid the foundation for theory of oncoviruses by demonstrating that the avian erythroblastosis (a form of chicken leukaemia) could be transmitted by cell-free extracts. Since then, it has been shown very convincingly that viruses can directly cause several hum

Objective

Recently, several large randomised controlled trials about the treatments of cognitive impairment or dementia due to Parkinson's disease (CIND-PD or PDD) and dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) were completed. Here, we systematically reviewed the studies (including the recent reports) to provi

Background

Simple, robust, sensitive and clinically meaningful outcome measures are required for neuroprotective trials in Parkinson's disease (PD). We explored the feasibility of a composite binary outcome measure, ‘dead or dependent’, in such trials using data from a prospective follow-up study of

It is an exciting time to be involved in the treatment of multiple sclerosis (MS). While the exact cause still remains elusive, over the last decade there have been a plethora of new treatments and approaches: disease modifying and symptomatic. This third edition therefore comes at exactly the right

This review argues that even with the tremendous advances in diagnostic neuroimaging that the clinical skills involved in clinical neurology (ie, history, examination, localisation and differential diagnosis) remain key. Yet a number of recent audits suggest that large numbers of patients are failin

The highest standards of clinical evidence are phase III randomised, double-blind, controlled clinical trials. Their significance to clinical medicine is given theoretically by the fact that patients as well as doctors are blind to the treatment and no bias can subvert patients’ assignments to eithe

Background

Altered reactivity of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and their production of cytokines may affect multiple sclerosis (MS) clinical course. We assessed the relationship of stimulated PBMC-produced IFN-, TNF-α, IL-4 and IL-10 in modulating relapse risk using a prospective cohort

Nicholl and Appleton1 suggest that the classical technique of history and examination, a skill assiduously acquired by generations of physicians, perhaps especially by neurologists, has begun to fall into disuse, even neglect. This is not a new issue, but has it become more evident as the scope, sen

Introduction

Sustained disability improvement was observed in about 30% of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) treated with natalizumab (Tysabri, Biogen Idec, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA), thus suggesting the occurrence of reversal of neurological dysfunction.1 In addition to its striking effect

Dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) is recognised as the second most common form of dementia in older people. Delirium is a condition of acute brain dysfunction for which a pre-existing diagnosis of dementia is a risk factor. Conversely delirium is associated with an increased risk of developing dementi

Background

Serial electrophysiology has been suggested as essential for accurate diagnosis in Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS). However, whether more adapted electrophysiological criteria may allow a single study to be sufficient is unknown.
