Oregon Health and Science University, Campus Mail OP 32, 3181 SW Sam Jackson Park Road, Portland, OR 97239 3098, USA
Curr Neurol Neurosci Rep 3:279-84. 2003..The resultant advances in our understanding of the pathogenesis of the disorder are moving us toward rational therapies to slow the progression and delay the onset of the illness...
- Interrater agreement in the assessment of motor manifestations of Huntington's diseasePenelope Hogarth
Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon 97239 3098, USA
Mov Disord 20:293-7. 2005..We expect these findings to translate to a similar level of interobserver agreement in the clinical trial setting involving experienced investigators examining live patients...
- Sodium phenylbutyrate in Huntington's disease: a dose-finding studyPenelope Hogarth
Department of Neurology, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon 97239 3098, USA
Mov Disord 22:1962-4. 2007..We saw no significant laboratory or electrocardiographic abnormalities. Gene expression changes in blood suggested an inverse dose-response. In conclusion, SPB at 12 to 15 g/day appears to be safe and well-tolerated in human HD...
- Pallidal vs subthalamic nucleus deep brain stimulation in Parkinson diseaseValerie C Anderson
Department of Neurological Surgery, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR 97201, USA
Arch Neurol 62:554-60. 2005..Although it has been suggested that stimulation of the STN may be superior to stimulation of the GPi, comparative trials are limited...
- Neuro-ophthalmologic and electroretinographic findings in pantothenate kinase-associated neurodegeneration (formerly Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome)Robert A Egan
Casey Eye Institute, Department of Ophthalmology, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland 97201, USA
Am J Ophthalmol 140:267-74. 2005..Since the neuro-ophthalmologic and electroretinographic (ERG) features have never been well delineated, we describe them in 16 patients with PKAN...
