Importance  Distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSP) is a prevalent condition that results in high costs from diagnostic testing. However, the role of neurologists and diagnostic tests in patient care is unknown.

Objective  To determine how often neurologists and diagnostic tests influence the diagnosis and management of DSP ...

Importance  The Healthy Brain Initiative 2013-2018 seeks to optimize brain health as we age. Free radical injury is an important effector of molecular and cellular stress in the aging brain that derives from multiple sources.

Objective  To identify potentially modifiable risk factors associated with increased markers ...

Michael Swash, MD
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is usually considered to begin when the first symptoms develop; an example is the onset of distal weakness and atrophy in an upper limb, often with fasciculation in a more widespread distribution.1 This definition of disease onset follows an understanding of the pattern of onset in ...

Includes: Supplemental Content

Importance  Considerable advances have been made in our understanding of the genetics underlying amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Nevertheless, for the majority of patients who receive a diagnosis of ALS, the role played by genetics is unclear. Further elucidation of the genetic architecture of this disease will help ...

Includes: Supplemental Content

Importance  Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a severe progressive disease that cannot be prevented or cured. Diet-derived long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are incorporated in brain lipids and modulate oxidative and inflammatory processes and could thus affect ALS risk and progression.

Objective  To examine the association ...

Original Investigation 
Kori Sauser, MD, MSc; Deborah A. Levine, MD, MPH; Adrienne V. Nickles, MPH; Mathew J. Reeves, PhD
Includes: Supplemental Content

Importance  Given the limited time window available for treatment with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) in patients with acute ischemic stroke, guidelines recommend door-to-imaging time (DIT) within 25 minutes of hospital arrival and door-to-needle (DTN) time within 60 minutes for patients with acute ischemic stroke. Despite improvements in ...

Includes: Supplemental Content

Importance  Despite recessive inheritance, X-linked dystonia-parkinsonism (Lubag disease) has also been described in women presenting with a late-onset isolated parkinsonian syndrome. Interestingly, unlike in other populations, there is a slight female predominance in the prevalence of parkinsonism in the Philippines.

Observations  In a Filipino woman with ...

Kevin N. Sheth, MD; Jonathan Rosand, MD, MSc
Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is the most devastating form of stroke, conferring the highest morbidity and mortality of any stroke subtype.1 To date, most interventions have targeted hematoma expansion. However, ICH expansion occurs early after onset and only in a subset of patients. Therefore, treatments can only be given in the ...

Importance  α-Synuclein (SNCA) locus duplications are associated with variable clinical features and reduced penetrance but the reasons underlying this variability are unknown.

Objectives  To report a novel family carrying a heterozygous 6.4 Mb duplication of the SNCA locus with an atypical clinical presentation strongly ...

Importance  Pronounced inflammatory reactions occurring shortly after intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) contribute to the formation and progression of perihematomal edema (PHE) and secondary brain injury. We hypothesized that modulation of brain inflammation reduces edema, thus improving clinical outcomes in patients with ICH.

Objective  To investigate whether oral ...

Walter J. Koroshetz, MD; Story Landis, PhD
The mission of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability. For more than a decade, the mission statement of the National Institute ...

In this issue of Archives, McKeon et al1 report that 10 of 81 patients with stiff-man syndrome from the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, had serum and/or cerebrospinal fluid IgG antibodies that bound to fixed, permeabilized HEK293 cells (an immortalized human kidney line) that had been transfected to express the ...
