Conference Coverages

Novel Cerebrospinal Fluid Biomarkers Can Be Used to Distinguish Underlying Pathology in Patients with Specific Form of Dementia
Novel Cerebrospinal Fluid Biomarkers Can Be Used to Distinguish Underlying Pathology in Patients with Specific Form of Dementia
Ability to differentiate between subtypes of frontotemporal lobar degeneration could accelerate research into the pathology and prevention of this disease and aid in the design of disease-modifying therapies.
Glutathione Levels Decreased in the Motor Cortex of Patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis
Study results suggest that oxidative stress may play a direct role in the neurodegeneration that occurs in ALS.
Assessing Changes in Dementia Diagnostic Category in Patients with Dementia with Lewy Bodies
DaTscan™ SPECT imaging can help physicians assess diagnostic category and improve diagnostic confidence for patients with dementia with Lewy bodies.
Looking for Effective Treatment Options for Painful Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
Severe neuropathic pain due to diabetic peripheral neuropathy is associated with negative health impact and increased healthcare utilization, underscoring the need for the development of safe and effective treatments.
Pharmacologic Treatment Options for Partial Seizures
Study results show a novel formulation of oxcarbazepine may provide long-term seizure reduction in patients with refractory epilepsy, while a separate trial produced promising results for long-term lacosamide treatment in elderly patients with partial-onset seizures.
MAP0004 for the Treatment of Severe Pain Associated with Migraine
Data presented at the 2013 AAN Annual Meeting indicate that MAP0004, which delivers dihydroergotamine (DHE) via oral inhalation, is effective in the acute treatment of severe migraine pain.
Droxidopa Shows Promise as a Treatment for Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension Symptoms in Patients with Parkinson's Disease
Patients with Parkinson's disease and neurogenic orthostatic hypotension treated with droxidopa showed improvements in symptoms of dizziness and lightheadedness, and in systolic blood pressure.
Efficacy and Safety of Intravenously Administered Solanezumab in the Treatment of Patients with Mild-to-Moderate Alzheimer's Disease
Researchers report the monoclonal antibody solanezumab may improve cognition and activities of daily living for patients with mild Alzheimer's disease.
Comparison of Newer and Traditional Antiepileptic Drugs in the Treatment of Epilepsy Induced by MELAS
Study shows levetiracetam, carbamazepine, and topiramate are equally safe and effective in the treatment of adult patients with epilepsy induced by MELAS. However, valproate was found to be less effective and associated with more adverse events.
