OBJECTIVES: I. Assess the efficacy of 3,4-diaminopyridine in patients with stable chronic demyelinating polyneuropathy.
The purpose of this pilot study is to assess the safety and efficacy of Acthar® Gel in Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) patients.
Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a chronic demyelinating polyneuropathy of autoimmune origin with a progressive or relapsing course. Diagnosis is based on clini...
Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a treatable form of peripheral neuropathy with suspected autoimmune cause. The current first-line treatment is IVIG (immune glob...
The purpose of the study is to examine if alpha lipoic acid is an effective treatment for chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP).
We report the case of a 74-year-old woman with treatment-naive chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy evaluated by both nerve conduction studies and nerve ultrasound (NUS) before and after ...
Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a rare, autoimmune-inflammatory disease of the peripheral nervous system. Recently, various immunoglobulin G4 (IgG4) type auto-antibodies ha...
Diabetic patients with poor glycaemic control can demonstrate demyelinating distal sensorimotor polyneuropathy (D-DSP) on electrophysiology. Distinguishing D-DSP from chronic inflammatory demyelinatin...
Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) is the most commonly observed phenotype among chronic acquired demyelinating polyneuropathies and is clinically variable. The aim of th...
To clearly define transthyretin familial amyloid polyneuropathies (TTR-FAPs) fulfilling definite clinical and electrophysiologic European Federation of Neurological Societies/Peripheral Nerve Society ...
Diseases characterized by injury or dysfunction involving multiple peripheral nerves and nerve roots. The process may primarily affect myelin or nerve axons. Two of the more common demyelinating forms are acute inflammatory polyradiculopathy (GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME) and POLYRADICULONEUROPATHY, CHRONIC INFLAMMATORY DEMYELINATING. Polyradiculoneuritis refers to inflammation of multiple peripheral nerves and spinal nerve roots.
A diffuse or multifocal peripheral neuropathy related to the remote effects of a neoplasm, most often carcinoma or lymphoma. Pathologically, there are inflammatory changes in peripheral nerves. The most common clinical presentation is a symmetric distal mixed sensorimotor polyneuropathy. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1334)
A slowly progressive autoimmune demyelinating disease of peripheral nerves and nerve roots. Clinical manifestations include weakness and sensory loss in the extremities and enlargement of peripheral nerves. The course may be relapsing-remitting or demonstrate a step-wise progression. Protein is usually elevated in the spinal fluid and cranial nerves are typically spared. GUILLAIN-BARRE SYNDROME features a relatively rapid progression of disease which distinguishes it from this condition. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1337)
Diseases of multiple peripheral nerves simultaneously. Polyneuropathies usually are characterized by symmetrical, bilateral distal motor and sensory impairment with a graded increase in severity distally. The pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves include degeneration of the axon, myelin or both. The various forms of polyneuropathy are categorized by the type of nerve affected (e.g., sensory, motor, or autonomic), by the distribution of nerve injury (e.g., distal vs. proximal), by nerve component primarily affected (e.g., demyelinating vs. axonal), by etiology, or by pattern of inheritance.
Damage to any compartment of the lung caused by physical, chemical, or biological agents which characteristically elicit inflammatory reaction. These inflammatory reactions can either be acute and dominated by NEUTROPHILS, or chronic and dominated by LYMPHOCYTES and MACROPHAGES.
