The Golgi apparatus (GA) of spinal anterior horn cells was examined immunohistochemically in five patients with X‐linked spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy (SBMA), in five patients with sporadic amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and in five patients without neurodegenerative diseases. In SBMA...
Maximum Voluntary Isometric Contraction (MVIC) is a standardised, objective and sensitive tool for the measurement of muscle strength. The purpose of this study was to investigate different aspects of reliability of MVIC and to determine if a learning effect existed in a relatively new user of...

During the multicenter, phase III trial of intrathecal BDNF in ALS, we evaluated the neuronal marker N‐acetylaspartate (NAA) as a surrogate marker of therapeutic efficacy using proton magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) in a prospective and blinded manner. Selected subjects...
Previous studies have supported non‐invasive ventilation (NIV) in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), indicating that it prolongs survival. However, criteria for the use of NIV are yet to be defined. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the potential use of nocturnal pulse oximetry...
