AbstractPolyneuropathy associated with monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS-PNP) has a chronic and slowly progressive course but can lead to significant disability and reduced quality of life (QoL). The aim of this study was to analyze QoL in MGUS-PNP patients and to determine its predictors. Our study included 51 patients diagnosed with MGUS-PNP (23.5% with IgM, 66.7% IgG or IgA, 7.8% undetermined paraprotein, 2.0% light chains). QoL was assessed using the SF-36 questionnaire. The Medical Research Council Sum Score (MRC-SS), INCAT disability and sensory scores, ataxia score, Krupp ’s Fatigue Seve...

uhsin Konuk Tao Sun Neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric diseases are characterized by the structural and functional abnormalities of neurons in certain regions of the brain.

Although comprehensive efforts have been made to figure out effective therapies against these diseases, partial success has been achieved and complete functional recovery is still not a reality. At present, plants and plant-derived compounds are getting more attention because of a plethora of pharmacological properties, ...
