Several Lower Extremity MR Biomarkers Predict Future Ambulatory Function in Patients With Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
ICNA
ICNA
Updated March 17, 2020
In a recently published article in Neurology, Krista Vandenborne and colleagues suggest that several magnetic resonance (MR) biomarkers from the lower extremities, including biomarkers from the proximal muscles, may be predictive of future ambulatory function in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. These predictive biomarkers include the vastus lateralis fat fraction, soleus fat fraction, vastus lateralis T2 MR imaging (MRI), and biceps femoris long head T2 MRI.

Early escalation of treatment reduces cognitive impairment and prevents decline in Childhood MS
ICNA
ICNA
Updated February 08, 2020
 Johnen A and colleagues from University of Münster, Germany in a recently published study in the European Journal of Paediatric Neurology suggests that early initiation of highly effective escalation therapies in pediatric patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) is associated with reduced cognitive impairment (CI) and may prevent cognitive decline in these patients. They did a cohort study of 19 patients from a single center in Germany with therapy-naive or...

 In a fascinating new study published in Cell Reports investigators from California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California quantifying intrinsic functional connectivity in six individuals who underwent hemispherectomy, in childhood. Studies of temporal correlations of blood-oxygenation-level-dependent signal (BOLD) as indirect measures of intrinsic functional connectivity with resting-state fMRI have suggested that a relatively small set of resting-state functional brain networks underlie cognition and behaviour. It has been known that despite profoundly atypical anatomy some individuals have been able to retain relatively intact cognitive abilities. However it has not been explained whether this compensation is due to a reorganisation of...
