The course of this disease differs from those of relapsing?remitting and secondary progressive forms of multiple sclerosis in that progression consists mainly of gradual worsening of…
Ocrelizumab versus Interferon Beta-1a in Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis
01/01/70 - Despite the availability of several disease-modifying treatments for relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis, patients often continue to have clinical and subclinical disease activity, and neurologic disability continues to accrue. Thus, there is a need for more effective treatments with acceptable…
B-Cell Depletion ? A Frontier in Monoclonal Antibodies for Multiple Sclerosis
01/01/70 - Multiple sclerosis is a disabling autoimmune disease in which immune cells target central nervous system (CNS) antigens, leading to demyelination, glial activation, and subsequent loss of neurons and axons. There are three main subtypes of multiple sclerosis: relapsing?remitting, in which patients…
01/01/70 - Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease in which antibodies bind to acetylcholine receptors or to functionally related molecules in the postsynaptic membrane at the neuromuscular junction. The antibodies induce weakness of skeletal muscles, which is the sole disease manifestation. The weakness…

Multisystem Anomalies in Severe Combined Immunodeficiency with Mutant BCL11B
01/01/70 - Population-based screening of newborns for severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID) involves the quantification of blood levels of T-cell?receptor excision circles (TRECs), which are DNA by-products of T-cell?receptor rearrangement that indicate thymic production of naive T cells. Inadequate TREC…
