Cost-minimization analysis in the Indian subcontinent for treating Guillain Barre Syndrome patients with therapeutic plasma exchange as compared to intravenous immunoglobulin.

Therapeutic Plasma Exchange (TPE) and Intravenous Immunoglobulin both are first-line treatments for Guillain Barre Syndrome; however, there is a significant difference in cost. We undertook this study...

Dynamic thiol-disulphide homeostasis in patients with Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

The aim of this study was to evaluate dynamic thiol-disulphide homeostasis as a novel oxidative stress parameter in patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS).

Diffusion Tensor Imaging of Tibial and Common Peroneal Nerves in Patients With Guillain-Barre Syndrome: A Feasibility Study.

The development of a noninvasive, objective, and accurate method to assess peripheral nerve disorders in Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is of clinical significance. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has b...

Dysglycemia and Neurologic Outcome in Mechanically Ventilated Patients With Guillain-Barré Syndrome.

Acute respiratory failure is a frequent complication of Guillain-Barré syndrome, associated with high morbidity and mortality. Adjuvant treatments are needed to improve the outcome of Guillain-Barré...

Spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma mimicking Guillain-Barre Syndrome.

The initial symptoms of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) can be similar to a case of spontaneous spinal epidural hematoma (SSEH) located at the cervicothoracic junction. Therefore, SSEH may be misdiagnos...

Assessment of Chronic Guillain-Barre Syndrome Improvement With Use of 4-Aminopyridine

In developed countries, Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) is the most common cause of acute neuromuscular paralysis, afflicting about 5,000 persons annually in the United States. Over 20% of G...

A Clinical Trial of CK0801 (a New Drug) In Patients With Treatment-Resistant Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS)

sCD163 as a Potential Biomarker in Guillain- Barré Syndrome

Guillain- Barré syndrome (GBS) is an acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (AIDP) that often is triggered by an infection. GBS is characterized by progressing weakness and numbn...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

One of the SEROTONIN UPTAKE INHIBITORS formerly used for depression but was withdrawn worldwide in September 1983 because of the risk of GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME associated with its use. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 29th ed, p385)

An acute inflammatory autoimmune neuritis caused by T cell- mediated cellular immune response directed towards peripheral myelin. Demyelination occurs in peripheral nerves and nerve roots. The process is often preceded by a viral or bacterial infection, surgery, immunization, lymphoma, or exposure to toxins. Common clinical manifestations include progressive weakness, loss of sensation, and loss of deep tendon reflexes. Weakness of respiratory muscles and autonomic dysfunction may occur. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1312-1314)

A viral disease transmitted by the bite of AEDES mosquitoes infected with ZIKA VIRUS. Its mild DENGUE-like symptoms include fever, rash, headaches and ARTHRALGIA. The viral infection during pregnancy, however, may be associated with other neurological and autoimmune complications (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME; and MICROCEPHALY).

A variant of the GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME characterized by the acute onset of oculomotor dysfunction, ataxia, and loss of deep tendon reflexes with relative sparing of strength in the extremities and trunk. The ataxia is produced by peripheral sensory nerve dysfunction and not by cerebellar injury. Facial weakness and sensory loss may also occur. The process is mediated by autoantibodies directed against a component of myelin found in peripheral nerves. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1313; Neurology 1987 Sep;37(9):1493-8)

Disorders caused by cellular or humoral immune responses primarily directed towards nervous system autoantigens. The immune response may be directed towards specific tissue components (e.g., myelin) and may be limited to the central nervous system (e.g., MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS) or the peripheral nervous system (e.g., GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME).
