[Immunological test for idiopathic inflammatory myopathies]

HORVÁTH Rita, ALZIRA A S Carvalmo

[Sceletal muscle biopsy specimens from patients with various inflammatory myopathies – dermatomyositis, polymyositis and inclusion body myositis – have been investigated by immunocytochemical methods with the help of monoclonal antibodies. Conclusions about the pathomechanism of these disorders were saught. In dermatomyositis the humoral immunity and the damage of the small vessels of muscle fibres may play an important role. The appearance of class I MHC antigens on diseased muscle may make... tovább »

[Is there a relationship between CT morphology and the MMS scale achievements in patients with dementia?]

PÉK Márta, BARSI Péter, NAGY Zoltán

[An attempt is made to establish relationships between CT parameters and the achievements on the Mini Mental State (MMS) scale of patients suffering from various types of dementia. The results suggest that the Mini Mental State scores change together in Alzheimer's type of dementias, referring to the global deterioration of functions in contrast to the vascular type of dementias, where the scores on each item change independently of each other. In the combined examination of the two groups the... tovább »

[Thrombolysis in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke]

NAGY Zoltán, SKOPÁL Judit

[Stroke is the third common cause of death and the main cause of disability in Hungary. Despite of the intensive preclinical and clinical research on the pathophysiology and therapy of ischemic stroke, there is no treatment to improve the prognosis of brain infarct. Thrombolysis could be hypothetically a causative intervention, what makes the vascular bed patent again (recanalisation hypothesis). The different thrombolysis trials, meta-analysis, and case reports indicated, that the early... tovább »

[Dementia and related problems '93. an overview]

TARISKA Péter

[Based on extensive investigations carried out the epidemiology of dementias in the last decade in Europe the methodology has become unified. The most important elements are: two-step screening in two time periods, population of 4000 or more, unified screening and diagnostic methods. The incidence was 1 p.c. established in the population between the ages of 60–64; the proportion nearly doubled in each 5 year period. Regarding the recently published risk factors of Alzheimer's disease (AD) the... tovább »

[The history of Hungarian neurology (Part I)]

BEKÉNY György

[Every nation has its great people of whom it is proud. In our country, intellectuals think that Hungarians are particularly talented in music and mathematics. However, our outstanding geneticist believes that the genetic background of different abilities is equal between nations and that the different results are caused by external circumstances. Indeed, the "accumulation" of great Hungarian conductors and musicians in the United States, and the careers of many Nobel Prize-winning... tovább »

[Voltage mapping studies of generalized spike- wave patterns associated with absence seizures]

CLEMENS Béla

[In this retrospective study, scalp electric fields of ictal generalized spike-wave discharges were analized by the so-called topographic voltage mapping method. The 17 patients displaying absences (with or without other seizures) belonged to different age groups and diverse epileptic syndromes. Main results: 1. Maps derived at the points of the spike and the wave components belong to different classes. A-type spikes show frontal, P-type spikes show posterior voltage maxima. Also atypical spike... tovább »
