Department of Neurology, BG Kliniken Bergmannsheil, Ruhr University, D 44780 Bochum, Germany
Curr Biol 19:837-42. 2009..These findings suggest that brief periods of reduced use of a limb have overt consequences and thus constitute a significant driving force of brain organization equivalent to enhanced use...

- Local cytokine changes in complex regional pain syndrome type I (CRPS I) resolve after 6 monthsMelanie Lenz
Department of Neurology, Berufsgenossenschaftliches Universitätsklinikum Bergmannsheil GmbH, Bochum, Germany Electronic address
Pain 154:2142-9. 2013..This profile seems to be relevant only at the early stage of CRPS. Almost all measured cytokine levels were comparable to those of non-CRPS patients after 6 months of analgesic treatment and were not related to treatment outcome...
