1. Investigating prophylactic botulinum toxin type A for chronic headache disorders.
Match Strength: 9.091
There is an increasing number of studies on botulinum toxin A in the treatment of idiopathic and symptomatic headache; however, many studies can hardly be compared with each other because of different end points and different trial designs. For the prophylactic treatment of tension-type headache, migraine and cervicogenic headache, no sufficient positive evidence for a successful treatment can be obtained from the randomised, double-blind and placebo-controlled trials performed so far. For the treatment of chronic daily headache (including medication-overuse headache), there is inconsistent ... Read More »

6. Spontaneous intracranial hypotension: a study of six cases with MR findings and literature review.
Match Strength: 3.687
Spontaneous intracranial hypotension is clinically characterized by orthostatic headache and other symptoms caused by low cerebrospinal fluid pressure due to leakage of cerebrospinal fluid from dural punctures or other medical causes. The other symptoms are mainly due to traction of the cranial and spinal nerves owing to descent of the brain caused by low cerebrospinal fluid pressure. Magnetic resonance imaging is very useful in the diagnosis because of its characteristic findings. We describe the MRI findings in six cases that had variable clinical presentation. Publication Types: Case ... Read More »

7. Serotonin syndrome caused by minimum doses of SSRIS in a patient with spinal cord injury.
Match Strength: 3.153
There have been only a few reports of serotonin syndrome developing after mono-therapy with a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). We report a case of serotonin syndrome caused by long-term therapy with fluvoxamine prior to treatment with paroxetine. An 18-year-old man with spinal cord injury (SCI) at thoracic level 2-3 presented with onset of serotonin syndrome after taking fluvoxamine (50 mg per day) for 8 weeks prior to treatment with paroxetine (10 mg per day) for 6 days. He had confusion, agitation, severe headache, tachycardia (124 beats/minute), hypertension (165/118 mmHg), ... Read More »

8. Adverse effects of treatment with intravenous immunoglobulins for neurological diseases.
Match Strength: 3.036
Therapy with intravenous immunoglobulins (IVIg) is considered to be a safe treatment for a number of immune-mediated neurological diseases. Published data about prevalence of adverse effects range from 11 to 81%. The purpose of our study was to preserve a representative view on adverse effects by analysis of a large cohort of patients treated by IVIg. A recent prospective study reported 42.7% adverse events. The majority of patients presented with minor adverse effects, mostly asymptomatic laboratory changes. Rash or mild headache occurred especially when IVIg was administered with an infusion ...

11. The analgesic effect of Carum copticum extract and morphine on phasic pain in mice.
Match Strength: 2.859
Pain is a universal complaint, which needs further investigations for new pain relieving agents. Carum copticum (L.) Sprague ex Turrill is a plant in Umbelliferae family, which is mentioned to have some therapeutic effects on headache and joint pains in Iranian traditional literature, but there are not enough scientific reports to prove its effects on pain. So, we conducted to design an experimental clinical trial study to assess and compare the analgesic effect of ethanolic extract of Carum copticum fruit with morphine by using a tail-flick analgesiometer device. Our results indicate that the ... Read More »
