The treatment of cluster headache

KARL Ekbom

Cluster headache attacks occur in series, lasting for weeks or months, that are separated by remission periods. However, in less than 15 %, patients suffer from a chronic syndrome, that is regular attacks for one year or longer. The spontaneous course of cluster headache may cause some problems when evaluating clinical trials. For instance, it may be difficult to decide whether an observed improvement is due to effects of the trial drug or to a spontaneous remission. Most studies published... tovább »

[Visual P300 and early components in chronic schizophrenic patients (clinical, neurocognitive and biochemical correlates)]

BARTKÓ György, KUNDRA Olga, BOLLA Mariann, ZÁDOR György, SÁNTA Zsuzsa, HORVÁTH Szabolcs, ARATÓ Mihály

[P300 and early components of the visual event related potentials were compared in 26 chronic schizophrenic patients and 20 healthy subjects. The correlation between visual evoked response and clinical, neurocognitive, biochemical variables was analysed in schizophrenic group. Event related potentials in response to rare visual stimuli were recorded from central and occipital sites and 20 electrophysiological parameters were determined. Reaction time and proportion of correct recognition were... tovább »

[Intracerebral hemorrhages and their neurosurgical management in early infancy]

PARAICZ Ervin, KÓNYA Eszter

[The number of spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhages over early infancy has increased in the last years in Hungary. As possible cause maybe the lack of Vitamin K prophylaxis in our 19 cases. With regard to management mostly the semiinvasive treatment was succesful, the external drainage of the hemorrhage and CSF. Craniotomy was indicated only in 3 patients. The functional result was good in the majority of cases.]

[Provocative myasthenia gravis and myasthenic syndromes]

SZOBOR Albert, KLEIN Magda

[Myasthenia gravis as a disease entity has long been known. With the inclusion of the paraneoplastic myasthenia syndrome, a wider area was encompassed by the disease, which became still wider by the description of different myasthenic syndromes in childhood. Recently quite a few provocative factors became known which can cause myasthenia gravis or some similar syndromes. One such-prominent-factor is D-penicillamine a drug widely used in rheumatology practice. A great number of cases were... tovább »

[Characterization of human gliomas by the OITI C3-11 monoclonal antibody]

SIPOS László, TOSHIHIKO Wakabayashi, SZEIFERT György, FAZEKAS Ilona, ÁFRA Dénes

[OITI C3-11 monoclonal antibodies were produced against GFAP positive human glioblastoma tumour cells. The specificity of these antibodies was tested on different type of brain tumours and on normal adult brain both on tissue cultures and paraffin-embedded sections. Such OITI C3-11 monoclonal antibodies reacted with 16 of 18 malignant and 1 of 6 benign gliomas but did not react with meningioma, pituitary, adenoma, metastatic brain tumours and normal adult brain tissue.]
