Summary of "Effect of glatiramer acetate on cerebral grey matter pathology in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis."

In this two year longitudinal study we compare the progression of grey matter (GM) damage in MS patients treated with glatiramer acetate (GA) for relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) respect to untreated patients.

An impact of glatiramer acetate (timexon) on the signs of neurodegeneration process in the neuronal layer of the retina in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis.

To perform a comparative study of the results of optical coherence tomography of the retina in patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, treated with glatiramer acetate (timexon).

Long-term follow-up for multiple sclerosis patients initially treated with interferon-beta and glatiramer acetate.

Our goal was to compare subjects treated with glatiramer acetate (GA) and interferon-beta (IFN-β) in terms of long-term clinical outcomes.

Cognitive Effects of White Matter Pathology in Normal and Pathological Aging.

We examined whether cerebrovascular white matter pathology is related to cognition as measured by the compound score of CERAD neuropsychological battery in cognitively normal older adults, patients wi...

The Novel Effect of Immunomodulator-Glatiramer Acetate on Epileptogenesis and Epileptic Seizures.

Immunological mechanisms can be triggered as a response to central nervous system insults and can lead to seizures. In this study an investigation was made to determine if glatiramer acetate (GA), an ...

Change in gray matter volume and cerebral blood flow in patients with burning mouth syndrome.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate alterations in gray matter volume (GMV) and cerebral blood flow (CBF) using structural MRI and arterial spin labeling (ASL) perfusion MRI, respectively, in bu...

PET With [18F]Flumazenil as an Index of Neurodegeneration in MS

Beyond white matter pathology, grey matter damage is considered as a key player in disability onset and progression in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The underlying substratum of grey matter dam...

Brainstem Grey Matter and Cerebral Autoregulation in Migraine With Aura.

Migraine with aura (MA) is an independent risk factor for stroke and is associated with silent brain infracts and T2 white matter hyperintensities on MRI. Previous studies using Transcrani...

Clinical Trial of Glatiramer Acetate in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Teva is developing 40 mg/ml Glatiramer Acetate (GA) Injection , administered once daily under the skin, for the treatment of ALS. The study drug is a higher dose formulation of Copaxone® ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Cortical malformations characterized by grey matter-lined cleft or cyst that extends from the EPENDYMA often to the PIA MATER outer surface. The grey matter that lines the cleft is often POLYMICROGYRIA. It is associated with developmental delay, motor disturbance and seizures.

A condition that is characterized by HEADACHE; SEIZURES; and visual loss with edema in the posterior aspects of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES, such as the BRAIN STEM. Generally, lesions involve the white matter (nerve fibers) but occasionally the grey matter (nerve cell bodies).

A random polymer of L-ALANINE, L-GLUTAMIC ACID, L-LYSINE, and L-TYROSINE that structurally resembles MYELIN BASIC PROTEIN. It is used in the treatment of RELAPSING-REMITTING MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS.

A 6-methyl PROGESTERONE acetate with reported glucocorticoid activity and effect on ESTRUS.

Degeneration of white matter adjacent to the CEREBRAL VENTRICLES following cerebral hypoxia or BRAIN ISCHEMIA in neonates. The condition primarily affects white matter in the perfusion zone between superficial and deep branches of the MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY. Clinical manifestations include VISION DISORDERS; CEREBRAL PALSY; PARAPLEGIA; SEIZURES; and cognitive disorders.
