Title: Reply to Vance et al.

Abstract

In our report of a family with a motor and sensory polyneuropathy that was linked to chromosome 3q, we classified this neuropathy as a form of hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy II (HMSN II, also known as {open_quotes}CMT2{close_quotes}). Doubts have been raised by Vance et al. as to whether this neuropathy should be classified as hereditary sensory autonomic neuropathy I (HSAN I) instead of HMSN II. While it is reasonable to raise such doubts, we believe that the neuropathy is best designated as HMSN II for the reasons described below. The group of disorders described as HSAN are characterized by primary or predominant involvement of sensory and autonomic neurons that fail to develop or that undergo atrophy and degeneration. These disorders were extensively reviewed by Dyck and Ohta, who initially described them as the hereditary sensory neuropathies (HSN). It was Dyck who subsequently suggested that these disorders be designated HSAN rather than HSN, because of the presence of autonomic involvement. 8 refs.

  • The authors reply to the comment on confinement degradation and enhanced microturbulence as long{minus}time precursors to high{minus}density{minus}limit text device disruptions.The phenomenological model described in the comment(1) represents a novel interpretation of the long{minus}time precursors to high{minus}density{minus}limit disruptions on TEXT. (AIP)
  • The authors respond to the comment on dipole and monopole vortices in nonlinear drift waves'' in plasma. They hope part of their result commented might help to clarify the applicability of their solutions to concrete physical problems. In addition, there are two papers mentioned in the comment, both works are interesting. (AIP)
  • Song [ital et] [ital al]. reply.
  • In reply to the comment on the carrier dynamics near the superconductivity transition temperature on TBCCO it is believed near Tc, there is a divergence diverging relaxation time for perturbation to the order parameter. Moreover it is not claimed that the result indicate BCS coupling. (AIP)
  • The authors defend their distorted-wave impulse approximation determination of the spectroscopic strength of Ti(50). (AIP)
