Abstract

White matter diseases, including demyelinating or inflammatory disorders, may be indistinguishable clinically and radiologically from some central nervous system (CNS) tumors. In such situations, determination of the final diagnosis is difficult. An example is the differential diagnosis...read more

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) occurs due to JC virus infection. While most adults are infected, PML emerges in individuals with weakened immune systems. Here is the latest on PML.

B-Cell Lymphoma

B-cell lymphomas include lymphomas that affect B cells. This subtype of cancer accounts for over 80% of non-Hodgkin lymphomas in the US. Here is the latest research.

MS: Therapies

The feed focuses on therapeutic interventions used to treat Multiple Sclerosis.

Multiple Sclerosis: Pathology

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating autoimmune disease of the CNS, resulting in symptoms including optic neuritis and motor weakness. Here is the latest research on pathology of this complex neurodegenerative disease.

Lymphopenia

Lymphopenia has been associated with autoimmune pathology and it has been suggested that lymphopenia-induced proliferation of naive T cells may be responsible for the development of immune pathology. Here is the latest research.


CNS Lymphoma

In CNS lymphoma, cancerous cells from lymph tissues or other parts of the body form tumors in the brain and/or spinal cord. Here is the latest research on this rare non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Canavan Disease

Canavan disease is an autosomal recessive degenerative disorder that causes progressive damage to nerve cells in the brain, and is one of the most common degenerative cerebral diseases of infancy. Discover the latest research on Canavan disease here.

Multiple Sclerosis: Diagnostic Methods

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a demyelinating autoimmune disease of the CNS, resulting in symptoms including optic neuritis and motor weakness. Here is the latest research on development and application of methods for diagnosis of MS.

Lymphoma, B-Cell

B-Cell Lymphoma includes types of lymphomas that affect B cells. Here is the latest research on B-Cell lymphoma.

Multiple Sclerosis: Imaging

Magnetic resonance imaging has been used to diagnose and monitor the disease progression in multiple sclerosis. MRI has improved the management of MS patients and provided information on the level of atrophy in the brain and the severity of the disease. Discover the latest research on multiple sclerosis imaging here.
