OBJECTIVE: West Nile Virus (WNV) may evolve into West Nile Encephalitis (WNE) in older individuals. Most of these WNE seniors do not survive. The long-term outcome profiles of those who do survive WNE have not been well studied. This poster will serve as a follow-up to a 2014 INS poster presentation poster of a 74 year-old Caucasian male who was recovering from WNE.

The clinical spectrum of effects for modafinil is distinct from the effects seen with other catecholaminergic agents. Relative to other commonly used agents that act through catecholaminergic mechanisms, modafinil has a relatively low abuse potential, produces wakefulness with an attenuated compensatory sleep recovery thereafter, and does not ameliorate cataplexy in narcolepsy...
