AIDS Arteritis, Central Nervous System: Inflammation of ARTERIES in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that occurs in patients with ACQUIRED IMMUNODEFICIENCY SYNDROME or AIDS-RELATED OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS.Takayasu Arteritis: A chronic inflammatory process that affects the AORTA and its primary branches, such as the brachiocephalic artery (BRACHIOCEPHALIC TRUNK) and CAROTID ARTERIES. It results in progressive arterial stenosis, occlusion, and aneurysm formation. The pulse in the arm is hard to detect. Patients with aortitis syndrome often exhibit retinopathy.Arteritis: INFLAMMATION of any ARTERIES.Giant Cell Arteritis: A systemic autoimmune disorder that typically affects medium and large ARTERIES, usually leading to occlusive granulomatous vasculitis with transmural infiltrate containing multinucleated GIANT CELLS. The TEMPORAL ARTERY is commonly involved. This disorder appears primarily in people over the age of 50. Symptoms include FEVER; FATIGUE; HEADACHE; visual impairment; pain in the jaw and tongue; and aggravation of pain by cold temperatures. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed)Arteritis Virus, Equine: The type species of the genus ARTERIVIRUS and the etiologic agent of an important equine respiratory disease causing abortion, pneumonia, or other infections.Central Nervous System: The main information-processing organs of the nervous system, consisting of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges.Temporal Arteries: Arteries arising from the external carotid or the maxillary artery and distributing to the temporal region.Central Nervous System Diseases: Diseases of any component of the brain (including the cerebral hemispheres, diencephalon, brain stem, and cerebellum) or the spinal cord.Polymyalgia Rheumatica: A syndrome in the elderly characterized by proximal joint and muscle pain, high erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and a self-limiting course. Pain is usually accompanied by evidence of an inflammatory reaction. Women are affected twice as commonly as men and Caucasians more frequently than other groups. The condition is frequently associated with GIANT CELL ARTERITIS and some theories pose the possibility that the two diseases arise from a single etiology or even that they are the same entity.Central Nervous System Neoplasms: Benign and malignant neoplastic processes that arise from or secondarily involve the brain, spinal cord, or meninges.Nervous System: The entire nerve apparatus, composed of a central part, the brain and spinal cord, and a peripheral part, the cranial and spinal nerves, autonomic ganglia, and plexuses. (Stedman, 26th ed)Arterivirus Infections: Infections caused by viruses of the genus ARTERIVIRUS.Brain: The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.Central Nervous System Infections: Pathogenic infections of the brain, spinal cord, and meninges. DNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; RNA VIRUS INFECTIONS; BACTERIAL INFECTIONS; MYCOPLASMA INFECTIONS; SPIROCHAETALES INFECTIONS; fungal infections; PROTOZOAN INFECTIONS; HELMINTHIASIS; and PRION DISEASES may involve the central nervous system as a primary or secondary process.Polyarteritis Nodosa: A form of necrotizing non-granulomatous inflammation occurring primarily in medium-sized ARTERIES, often with microaneurysms. It is characterized by muscle, joint, and abdominal pain resulting from arterial infarction and scarring in affected organs. Polyarteritis nodosa with lung involvement is called CHURG-STRAUSS SYNDROME.Vasculitis, Central Nervous System: Inflammation of blood vessels within the central nervous system. Primary vasculitis is usually caused by autoimmune or idiopathic factors, while secondary vasculitis is caused by existing disease process. Clinical manifestations are highly variable but include HEADACHE; SEIZURES; behavioral alterations; INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; and BRAIN INFARCTION. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp856-61)Peripheral Nervous System: The nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system has autonomic and somatic divisions. The autonomic nervous system includes the enteric, parasympathetic, and sympathetic subdivisions. The somatic nervous system includes the cranial and spinal nerves and their ganglia and the peripheral sensory receptors.HLA-B52 Antigen: A specific HLA-B surface antigen subtype. Members of this subtype contain alpha chains that are encoded by the HLA-B*52 allele family.Aortic Arch Syndromes: Conditions resulting from abnormalities in the arteries branching from the ASCENDING AORTA, the curved portion of the aorta. These syndromes are results of occlusion or abnormal blood flow to the head-neck or arm region leading to neurological defects and weakness in an arm. These syndromes are associated with vascular malformations; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; TRAUMA; and blood clots.Central Nervous System Viral Diseases: Viral infections of the brain, spinal cord, meninges, or perimeningeal spaces.
Cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathy associated with HIV infection in an adult. (1/2)Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathy is described in the pediatric medical literature and features diffuse fusiform aneurysms of the arteries of the circle of Willis. We present the first report (to our knowledge) of this disease entity in an adult, a 29-year-old woman with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome who presented with subarachnoid hemorrhage. (+info)
Cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathy in an adult patient with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. (2/2)In adult patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), cerebral arteritis usually takes the form of arterial wall thickening, stenosis, and occlusion, leading to cerebral ischemia and infarction. Aneurysms and intracranial hemorrhage are much less commonly associated with cerebral vasculitis. For reasons not entirely clear, this form is seen more often in pediatric patients infected with human immunodeficiency virus. We report an adult patient with cerebral aneurysmal arteriopathy who presented shortly after his AIDS-defining illness in a setting of severe immune suppression and high viral load. (+info)

June 24, 2008 - By utilizing an automated system for measuring brain tissue with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), physicians may be able to more accurately diagnose Alzheimers disease at an earlier stage, according to a new study published in the July issue of the journal Radiology.. In Alzheimers disease, nerve cell death and tissue loss cause all areas of the brain, especially the hippocampus region, to shrink. MRI with high spatial resolution allows radiologists to visualize subtle anatomic changes in the brain that signal atrophy, or shrinkage. But the standard practice for measuring brain tissue volume with MRI, called segmentation, is a complicated, lengthy process.. "Visually evaluating the atrophy of the hippocampus is not only difficult and prone to subjectivity, it is time-consuming," explained the studys lead author, Olivier Colliot, Ph.D, from the Cognitive Neuroscience and Brain Imaging Laboratory in Paris, France. "As a result, it hasnt become part of clinical routine.". In ...

Multinucleated giant cell formation (MNGC) occurs in central nervous system AIDS. The mechanism of fusion of microglia in these cases is unknown. We investigated the ability of lymphokines to induce fusion and found that interleukin-3 (IL-3), interleukin-4 (IL-4), gamma interferon (gamma-IFN), and granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor (GM-CSF) induced MNGC formation in cultures of rat microglia in vitro. The diacylglycerol analogue phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) also induced MNGC. Interleukin-1 (IL-1), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) failed to induce fusion. Preincubation of the IL-3 treated cultures with anti-IL-3, anti-leukocyte function associated antigen-1 (LFA-1) alpha-chain (CD11a), and anti-intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) inhibited cell fusion. Antibody to polymorphic Class II major histocompatibility complex (MHC) determinants also inhibited MNGCs. Cell surface LFA-1 was predominantly observed on MNGC, suggesting that LFA-1 expression is

Downloadable! In this study, the linear approximate version of the Almost Ideal Demand System (AIDS) model is estimated using data from the Lithuanian household budget survey covering the period from July 1992 to December 1994. Based on the estimated coefficients of the model, Hossain and Jensen estimated price and real expenditure elasticities for 12 food groups. Estimated expenditure elasticities were positive and statistically significant for all food groups while all own-price elasticities were negative and statistically significant, except for that of eggs which was insignificant. Results suggest that Lithuanian household consumption responded to price and real income changes during the transition to a market-oriented economy.
