Low RLS prevalence and awareness in central Greece: an epidemiological survey
Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a sensorimotor disorder with a general population prevalence of 3-10%. A single, previous epidemiological study performed in southeast Europe reported the lowest prevalence rate amongst ...
A new stop codon mutation (Y52X) in the myophosphorylase gene in a Greek patient with McArdle's disease
We identified a novel stop codon mutation in the myophosphorylase gene in a Greek patient with typical symptoms of McArdle's disease. This is the first genetic study of myophosphorylase deficiency in a Greek family, showing ...
IL-1RN and IL-1B gene polymorphisms and cerebral hemorrhagic events after traumatic brain injury
Objective: To investigate the association of (variable number tandem repeat) interleukin (IL) 1RN and (-511) IL-1B gene polymorphisms with brain hemorrhagic events after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Methods: Data from ...
Effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme tag single nucleotide polymorphisms on the outcome of patients with traumatic brain injury
Background Genetic variants appear to influence, at least to some degree, the extent of brain injury and the clinical outcome of patients who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Angiotensin-converting enzyme ...
