Cerebrospinal fluid and therapy of isolated angiitis of the central nervous system

Stroke; a Journal of Cerebral Circulation

V OliveiraJ Ducla-Soares

Abstract

Serial cerebral angiograms, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging are among the proposed methods for monitoring disease activity and response to therapy in isolated angiitis of the central nervous system. Cerebrospinal fluid has not proved to be useful in monitoring clinic...read more

Giant Cell Arteritis

Giant cell arteritis is a systemic autoimmune disorder that typically affects medium and large arteries, usually leading to occlusive granulomatous vasculitis with transmural infiltrate containing multinucleated giant cells. Discover the latest research on giant cell arteritis here.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Brain

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate images of the area of interest. MRI of the brain is commonly performed to visualize the brain and related structures in detail. Discover the latest research of MRI and the brain here.

Immunosuppression

Immunosuppression trends for solid organ transplantation have undergone a perceptible shift over the past decade. Discover the latest research on immunosuppression here.

Immune Tolerance

Immune tolerance happens when the immune system is not responsive to a substance or organism and does not elicit an immune response. This is a normal physiological response for some antigens, especially when detecting self from non-self. This has been a potential area of therapy for some disorders. Here is the latest research on immune tolerance.

Neuroimaging

Neuroimaging is a useful tool for studying brain function as well as for diagnosis of diseases and injuries to the brain. Follow this feed to stay up to date.

CSF & Lymphatic System

This feed focuses on Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) and the lymphatic system. Discover the latest papers using imaging techniques to track CSF outflow into the lymphatic system in animal models.

Computed Axial Tomography: Brain

Computed axial tomography (CT or CAT) is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses X-rays to take slices of the particular region of interest. This data is sent to a computer where a 2D image is generated. CT of the brain can be helpful in understanding pathological processes of some diseases. Discover the latest research of CT of the brain here.

Central Nervous System Vasculitis

Central nervous system vasculitis is a newly recognized inflammatory brain disease, which may develop as a primary condition, or secondary to an underlying systemic disease. Here is the latest research.
