[Apoptosis in focal brain ischaemia]

ZÁDOR Zsolt, LACZA Zsombor, BENYÓ Zoltán, HARKÁNY Tibor, HORTOBÁGYI Tibor

[Ischaemic stroke is one of the major causes of death and disability in the developed world. It is caused by focal impairment of cerebral blood flow. The subsequent ischaemic cell death is predominantly necrotic in nature. However, a therapeutically important characteristic is the delayed apoptotic cell demise in the border zone of the primary lesion core. Apoptosis is one of the most intensively studied field of current medical and biological research. The better understanding of its mechanism... tovább »

KANYÓ Balázs, ÁRGYELÁN Miklós, DIBÓ György, SZAKONYI Zsolt, VÉCSEI László, FÜLÖP Ferenc, LÁNCZ Adrienn, FORGÁCS Péter, PÁVICS László

[99mTc-TRODAT-1 is a new, technetium based radiopharmaceutical that selectively binds to the dopamine transporters. The aim of the study was to evaluate the dopamine transporter status in movement disorders. Methods - In eight healthy volunteers (age range 22-58 years), 28 patients with Parkinson’s disease (age range 42-80 years), 10 patients with Parkinsonian syndrome (age range 51-79 years) and 13 patients with essential tremor (age range 43-71 years) were 99mTc-TRODAT-SPECT tests performed.... tovább »

[Two cases of frontotemporal dementia]

SZABÓ Erzsébet, SZABÓ Mihály

[Frontotemporal dementias represent the third most common cause of primer degenerative dementias next to Alzheimer’s disease and Lewy body disease. Frontotemporal dementia constitutes 10-20% of all praesenilis dementias. The authors present the results of the 10 years' clinical, neuropsychological, neuropathological examinations and brain imaging with the examples of two cases. At the early stage of frontotemporal dementia changes of personality and social conduct are prominent, whereas... tovább »

[Positron emission tomography in presurgical localization of epileptic foci]

JUHÁSZ Csaba

[The success of cortical resection for intractable epilepsy of neocortical origin is highly dependent on the accurate presurgical delineation of the regions responsible for generating seizures. In addition to EEG and structural imaging studies, functional neuroimaging such as positron emission tomography (PET) can assist lateralization and localization of epileptogenic cortical areas. In the presented studies, objectively delineated focal PET abnormalities have been analyzed in patients (mostly... tovább »
