It is potentially useful as antiviral agent in AIDS therapy. The core pentapeptide sequence, TTNYT, consisting of amino acids 4-8 in peptide T, is the HIV envelope sequence required for attachment to the CD4 receptor.
An acquired organic mental disorder with loss of intellectual abilities of sufficient severity to interfere with social or occupational functioning. The dysfunction is multifaceted and involves memory, behavior, personality, judgment, attention, spatial relations, language, abstract thought, and other executive functions. The intellectual decline is usually progressive, and initially spares the level of consciousness.
An acquired defect of cellular immunity associated with infection by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), a CD4-positive T-lymphocyte count under 200 cells/microliter or less than 14% of total lymphocytes, and increased susceptibility to opportunistic infections and malignant neoplasms. Clinical manifestations also include emaciation (wasting) and dementia. These elements reflect criteria for AIDS as defined by the CDC in 1993.
The type species of LENTIVIRUS and the etiologic agent of AIDS. It is characterized by its cytopathic effect and affinity for the T4-lymphocyte.
A dideoxynucleoside compound in which the 3'-hydroxy group on the sugar moiety has been replaced by an azido group. This modification prevents the formation of phosphodiester linkages which are needed for the completion of nucleic acid chains. The compound is a potent inhibitor of HIV replication, acting as a chain-terminator of viral DNA during reverse transcription. It improves immunologic function, partially reverses the HIV-induced neurological dysfunction, and improves certain other clinical abnormalities associated with AIDS. Its principal toxic effect is dose-dependent suppression of bone marrow, resulting in anemia and leukopenia.

Diseases of multiple peripheral nerves simultaneously. Polyneuropathies usually are characterized by symmetrical, bilateral distal motor and sensory impairment with a graded increase in severity distally. The pathological processes affecting peripheral nerves include degeneration of the axon, myelin or both. The various forms of polyneuropathy are categorized by the type of nerve affected (e.g., sensory, motor, or autonomic), by the distribution of nerve injury (e.g., distal vs. proximal), by nerve component primarily affected (e.g., demyelinating vs. axonal), by etiology, or by pattern of inheritance.
Peripheral, autonomic, and cranial nerve disorders that are associated with DIABETES MELLITUS. These conditions usually result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves (VASA NERVORUM). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with diabetic neuropathy include third nerve palsy (see OCULOMOTOR NERVE DISEASES); MONONEUROPATHY; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy; a painful POLYNEUROPATHY; autonomic neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy.

Cerebral vasculopathy in HIV infection revealed by transcranial Doppler: A pilot study. (1/587)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There is growing evidence for affection of cerebral vessels during human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. We prospectively evaluated cerebrovascular reserve capacity (CRC) in HIV-seropositive patients by transcranial Doppler sonography (TCD) after systemic administration of acetazolamide. We hypothesized that a disturbed vasoreactivity would reflect the cerebral arteries' involvement in HIV infection. METHODS: We assessed the mean blood flow velocity (BFV) of the middle cerebral artery and its increase after intravenous administration of 1 g acetazolamide (CRC) in 31 HIV-infected individuals without symptoms of cerebrovascular disease (mean+/-SD age, 39+/-11 years). Stenotic or occlusive lesions of the large brain-supplying arteries were excluded by color-coded duplex and transcranial imaging. BFV and CRC were also measured in an age-matched group of 10 healthy control subjects. Patients were classified according to clinical, laboratory, and neurophysiological parameters. We also performed cerebral MRI (n=25) and rheumatological blood tests (n=26). RESULTS: Baseline BFV and CRC both were significantly reduced in HIV-infected patients as compared with control subjects (P<0.05, Student's t test). These findings did not correlate with duration of seropositivity, helper cell count, or other clinical, rheumatological, and neuroradiological findings. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings support the hypothesis of a cerebral vasculopathy etiologically associated with HIV infection.  (+info)

Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy pattern of progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy in AIDS. (2/587)

The objective was to determine whether the use of intermediate echo times (135 ms) in proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) detects a homogenous pattern in progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) in HIV-1 infected people, and to confirm the results of previous studies. Six patients infected with HIV-1, with PML established by biopsy, and six healthy age and sex matched volunteers were evaluated to define their spectroscopic pattern. 1H-MRS spectra performed at 1.5 T were obtained with the STEAM sequence: TE/TM/TR, 20 ms/13.7 ms/2000 ms; 2500 Hz, size 2048 points, 256 acquisitions (STEAM-20) and with the PRESS sequence; TE/TR, 135 ms/2000 ms; 2500 Hz, size 2048 points, 256 acquisitions (PRESS-135). A single voxel was placed on the lesions and on the parieto-occipital white matter of controls. The peaks of N-acetylaspartate (NAA), choline (Cho), myoinositol (mI), lactate, and lipids were considered, and the results were expressed using creatine as reference. Spectra of PML lesions were characterised by significantly reduced NAA, lactate presence, and by significantly increased Cho and lipids compared with control group values. These results indicate that 1H-MRS detects a homogenous pattern in PML lesions. Recent studies, together with this, suggest that 1H-MRS may help in the diagnostic approach to patients with suspected PML lesions associated with AIDS.  (+info)

Increased peroxynitrite activity in AIDS dementia complex: implications for the neuropathogenesis of HIV-1 infection. (3/587)

Oxidative stress is suggested to be involved in several neurodegenerative diseases. One mechanism of oxidative damage is mediated by peroxynitrite, a neurotoxic reaction product of superoxide anion and nitric oxide. Expression of two cytokines and two key enzymes that are indicative of the presence of reactive oxygen intermediates and peroxynitrite was investigated in brain tissue of AIDS patients with and without AIDS dementia complex and HIV-seronegative controls. RNA expression of IL-1beta, IL-10, inducible nitric oxide synthase, and superoxide dismutase (SOD) was found to be significantly higher in demented compared with nondemented patients. Immunohistochemical analysis showed that SOD was expressed in CD68-positive microglial cells while inducible nitric oxide synthase was detected in glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP)-positive astrocytes and in equal amounts in microglial cells. Approximately 70% of the HIV p24-Ag-positive macrophages did express SOD, suggesting a direct HIV-induced intracellular event. HIV-1 infection of macrophages resulted in both increased superoxide anion production and elevated SOD mRNA levels, compared with uninfected macrophages. Finally, we show that nitrotyrosine, the footprint of peroxynitrite, was found more intense and frequent in brain sections of demented patients compared with nondemented patients. These results indicate that, as a result of simultaneous production of superoxide anion and nitric oxide, peroxynitrite may contribute to the neuropathogenesis of HIV-1 infection.  (+info)

Rate and severity of HIV-associated dementia (HAD): correlations with Gp41 and iNOS. (4/587)

BACKGROUND: Fifteen to thirty percent of AIDS patients develop some type of neurologic disorder during the course of their illness and the vast majority of these neurologic disorders will be HIV-associated dementia (HAD). These patients can exhibit varying degrees of severity and rates of progression of HAD. Neuropathologic variables that are associated with the rate of progression of HAD are not known. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Tissue was collected at autopsy from the Johns Hopkins University HIV Neurology Program. Seventy-one AIDS patients of this prospectively characterized population were followed until death to obtain information on dementia severity and the rate of neurological progression. Immunoblot analysis of immunological nitric oxide synthase (iNOS), HAM56, gp41, p24, gp120, and beta-tubulin was performed and the levels of iNOS, HAM56, gp41, and p24 were normalized to beta-tubulin and analyzed for significance by means of the Kruskal-Wallis test for multiple groups. RESULTS: We have identified unique groups within this spectrum and designated them slow, moderate, and rapid progressors. Slow and moderate progressors' neurological progression occurs over a course of months to years, whereas the rapid progressors' disease shows rapid increases in severity over weeks to months. In the present study we demonstrate that the severity and rate of progression of HAD correlates significantly with levels of the HIV-1 coat protein, gp41, iNOS, and HAM56, a marker of microglial/macrophage activation. CONCLUSION: The severity and rate of progression of HAD correlates with indices of immune activation as well as levels of iNOS and gp41. There appears to be a threshold effect in which high levels of gp41, iNOS, and immune activation are particularly associated with severe (Memorial Sloan-Kettering score 3 to 4) and rapidly progressive HAD.  (+info)

The SIV-infected rhesus monkey model for HIV-associated dementia and implications for neurological diseases. (5/587)

The neuropathogenesis of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-associated dementia has remained elusive, despite identification of HIV as the causal agent. Although a number of contributing factors have been identified, the series of events that culminate in motor and cognitive impairments after HIV infection of the central nervous system (CNS) are still not known. Rhesus monkeys infected with simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) manifest immunosuppression and CNS disease that is pathologically [L. R. Sharer et al. (1991) J. Med. Primatol. 20, 211-217] and behaviorally [E. A. Murray et al. (1992) Science 255, 1246-1249] similar to humans. The SIV model of HIV-associated dementia (HAD) is widely recognized as a highly relevant model in which to investigate neuropathogenesis. With better understanding of neuropathogenesis comes the opportunity to interrupt progression and to design better treatments for HAD. This becomes increasingly important as patients live longer yet still harbor HIV-infected cells in the CNS. The use of the SIV model has allowed the identification of neurochemical markers of neuropathogenesis important not only for HAD, but also for other inflammatory neurological diseases.  (+info)

Do alcohol and cocaine abuse alter the course of HIV-associated dementia complex? (6/587)

Although psychoactive drugs are commonly used by AIDS patients, it is unclear whether commonly abused drugs, such as cocaine and ethanol, affect the course of HIV-associated dementia (HADC). Epidemiological studies have resulted in conflicting conclusions as to what role, if any, abused drugs play in HADC. In this review we discuss the clinical and pathological evidence that cocaine and ethanol might exacerbate the detrimental effects of HIV infection on the brain. We also review studies of cocaine and ethanol effects on various components of the immune system both in the presence and absence of retroviral infection. Data from these studies indicate that cocaine and ethanol have profound effects on the immune system that, in many respects, are enhanced by retroviral infection. We conclude that abused drugs likely affect the course of HADC but that proof awaits an examination of their interactive effects in an appropriate in vivo system of retroviral encephalitis.  (+info)

Angiographic abnormalities in progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy: an explanation based on neuropathologic findings. (7/587)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is typically occult at angiography and fails to enhance on MR images. After observing angiographic abnormalities characterized by arteriovenous shunting and pathologic parenchymal blush in patients with AIDS-related PML, often in the absence of contrast enhancement on MR images, we hypothesized that there might be distinct changes in the cerebral microvasculature that account for the reduction in vascular transit time (arteriovenous shunting) in the absence of blood-brain barrier dysfunction. METHODS: The imaging studies and neuropathologic specimens of six patients with biopsy-proved PML were reviewed retrospectively. In all patients contrast-enhanced MR imaging and CT, followed by cerebral angiography, were performed before stereotactically directed biopsy. The angiograms were evaluated for the presence of vascular displacement, pathologic parenchymal blush, arteriovenous shunting, and neovascularity. The CT and MR studies were reviewed for the presence of enhancement of the PML lesions. Biopsy specimens were examined for the presence of necrosis, perivascular inflammation, and neovascularity. RESULTS: All patients had oligodendrocytic intranuclear inclusions diagnostic of PML, together with perivascular inflammation and neovascularity to a varying extent; no other neuropathologic processes were identified. Angiographic abnormalities, characterized by a pathologic parenchymal blush and arteriovenous shunting, were identified in four of the six patients. In only one of these cases, however, was abnormal enhancement identified on cross-sectional imaging studies (MR and CT), and this patient had florid perivascular inflammatory infiltrates histologically. CONCLUSION: The pathologic parenchymal blush and arteriovenous shunting seen angiographically in some patients with PML reflect small-vessel proliferation and perivascular inflammatory changes incited by the presence of the JC virus in infected oligodendrocytes.  (+info)

Bipolar disorder in old age. (8/587)

OBJECTIVE: To review the classification, clinical characteristics, and epidemiology of bipolar disorders in old age with a special focus on neurologic comorbidity, high mortality, and management. QUALITY OF EVIDENCE: Most available data is gleaned from retrospective chart reviews and cohort studies. Treatment recommendations are based on evidence from younger populations and a few anecdotal case reports and series involving elderly people. MAIN MESSAGE: While relatively rare in the community setting, mania in old age frequently leads to hospitalization. It is associated with late-onset neurologic disorders (especially cerebrovascular disease) involving the right hemisphere and orbitofrontal cortex. Prognosis is relatively poor; morbidity and mortality rates are high. Management of bipolarity includes cautious use of mood stabilizers, especially lithium and divalproex. CONCLUSIONS: Mania in old age should trigger a careful assessment of underlying neurologic disease, especially cerebrovascular disease. Close clinical follow up is essential.  (+info)

HIV infection can result in impairment in the function of the brain and spinal cord, leading to disturbances in the ability to think clearly and in strength and coordination. This disorder, which has been called the AIDS dementia complex, may be due to a direct effect of HIV on the nervous system. It is known that AZT does get into the brain to some extent, where it may reduce growth of HIV. It is hoped that AZT will stabilize or improve the symptoms of the AIDS dementia complex.. The study is done in 2 stages. In Stage 1, patients are randomized to receive placebo or 1 of 2 doses of AZT. Stage 1 lasts for 4 months. In Stage 2, patients who were initially treated with placebo are randomized again and all patients receive AZT. Stage 2 lasts an additional 12 months, during which time there are periodic medical and neurologic evaluations. Before beginning treatment, all patients have a lumbar puncture and a computerized tomographic (CT) scan of the brain. The lumbar puncture is repeated twice ...

The neurocognitive disorders associated with HIV (HAND) remain among the most common clinical disorders encountered in people infected with HIV, even in an era in which potent antiretroviral therapy is widely deployed. HAND is currently considered to encompass a hierarchy of progressively more severe patterns of central nervous system (CNS) involvement ranging from asymptomatic neurocognitive impairment (ANI), to minor neurocognitive disorder (MND), to the more severe HIV-associated dementia (HAD) [1]. With the improved survival of individuals treated with antiretrovirals, comorbid conditions have become increasingly salient, including particularly coinfection with hepatitis C and the effects of aging. Treatment guidelines for preferred initial antiretroviral regimens and for second or salvage regimens are essentially silent on the approach to HAND. For example, HIV-nephropathy is one indication for initiation of HAART, yet inexplicably HAND is not, unless it is severe enough to manifest as ...

The disease burden of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) - acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) is highest in sub-Saharan Africa but there are few studies on the associated neurocognitive disorders in this region. The objectives of this study were to determine whether Western neuropsychological (NP) methods are appropriate for use in Cameroon, and to evaluate cognitive function in a sample of HIV-infected adults. We used a battery of 19 NP measures in a cross-sectional study with 44 HIV+ adults and 44 demographically matched HIV- controls, to explore the validity of these NP measures in Cameroon, and evaluate the effect of viral infection on seven cognitive ability domains. In this pilot study, the global mean z-score on the NP battery showed worse overall cognition in the HIV+ individuals. Significantly lower performance was seen in the HIV+ sample on tests of executive function, speed of information processing, working memory, and psychomotor speed. HIV+ participants with AIDS performed worse

The primary aim of the present study was to evaluate the efficacy and stability over time of a cognitive rehabilitation protocol (restorative and compensatory approach) in HIV/AIDS patients with HIV-associated Neurocognitive Disorder (HAND). At baseline, 32 HIV/AIDS patients (16 with and 16 without HAND) were assessed with a neuropsychological battery (i.e., pre-assessment) consisting of 22 tests covering eight cognitive domains. Then, the experimental group was administered over 4 months a cognitive rehabilitation protocol aimed at improving four cognitive domains by means of eight paper and pencil/computer-based exercises. The control group received guideline-adherent clinical care (i.e., standard of care). At the end of the cognitive treatment, both groups were re-administered the neuropsychological battery (i.e., post-assessment). Additionally, 6 months after post-assessment, the experimental group was given the same neuropsychological battery (i.e., follow up-assessment). In order to test the
Of the 15 physicians identified in the system with evidence of neurocognitive disorders, 11 (73%) had at least one word in a complaint that described potential cognitive impairment (for example, forget/forgot, confuse(d), inappropriate). In contrast, only 8% of age- and sex-matched comparisons and 18% of site- and complaint-matched comparisons were associated with at least one complaint describing potential neurocognitive disorders. Individual words were also all statistically more likely to appear in unsolicited patient complaints for physicians with probable or possible neurocognitive disorders compared with physicians in the comparison groups. ...
HIV-Associated Dementia - Etiology, pathophysiology, symptoms, signs, diagnosis & prognosis from the Merck Manuals - Medical Professional Version.
Currently, neuropsychological impairment among HIV+ patients on antiretroviral therapy leads to a reduction in the quality of life and it is an important challenge due to the high prevalence of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders and its concomitant consequences in relation to morbidity and mortality- including those HIV+ patients with adequate immunological and virological status. The fact that the virus is established in CNS in the early stages and its persistence within the CNS can help us to understand HIV-related brain injury even when highly active antiretroviral therapy is effective. The rising interest in HIV associated neurocognitive disorders has let to development new diagnostic tools, improvement of the neuropsychological tests, and the use of new biomarkers and new neuroimaging techniques that can help the diagnosis.

Unfortunately, many of the gains made at last years UNGASS are being eroded by some member states. In the Phillippines, people who use drugs are being killed and arrested, and in Cambodia, Tanzania and other countries people who use drugs are increasingly incarcerated. Police harassment drives people who use drugs away from HIV and hepatitis C prevention services.. The HIV situation among people who inject drugs remains critical. UNAIDS data from 2016 shows that new HIV infections among people who inject drugs have increased by a staggering one third, from 114,000 in 2011 to 152,000. Since 2014, no new countries have introduced needle and syringe programmes or opioid substitution therapy - the first time that this has happened since 2006.. It is not possible to end the HIV and hepatitis C epidemics amongst people who inject drugs, and uphold the UNGASS ...

Worldwide over 30 million people are infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1). Although HIV is both neurotropic and neurovirulent, the spectrum of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) remains under-recognized. Combination antiretroviral therapy has improved the health of millions of those living with HIV, yet antiretroviral drugs show highly variable and often inadequate penetration into the CNS. As a result, patients quality of life continues to be diminished by milder, residual neurocognitive impairments that have not been effectively addressed. HIV causes synaptodendritic neuronal injury that can be measured post-mortem and is a likely source of neurocognitive decline. By carefully selecting specific antiretrovirals and supplementing them with neuroprotective agents, physicians might be able to facilitate innate CNS repair, promoting enhanced synaptodendritic plasticity, neural function and clinical neurological status.. ...
The prevalence of HANDs is high even in long-standing aviremic HIV-positive patients. However, HANDs without functional repercussion in daily life (asymptomatic neurocognitive impairment) is the most frequent subtype observed. In this population, the HIV dementia scale with a cutoff of 14 points or …
TY - JOUR. T1 - Complications of HIV infection. T2 - A systems-based approach. AU - Chu, Carolyn. AU - Selwyn, Peter A.. PY - 2011/2/15. Y1 - 2011/2/15. N2 - Patients with human immunodefciency virus (HIV) infection often develop multiple complications and comorbidities. Opportunistic infections should always be considered in the evaluation of symptomatic patients with advanced HIV/AIDS, although the overall incidence of these infections has decreased. Primary care of HIV infection includes the early detection of some complications through screening at-risk and symptomatic patients with routine laboratory monitoring (e.g., comprehensive metabolic and lipid panels) and validated tools (e.g., the HIV Dementia Scale). Treatment of many chronic complications is similar for patients with HIV infection and those without infection; however, combination antiretroviral therapy has shown beneft for some conditions, such as HIV-associated nephropathy. For other complications, such as cardiovascular disease ...
The goal of this initiative is to stimulate further research on the central role of exosomes in HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND). Specifically, this initiative encourages studies addressing the contribution of exosomes in modulating chronic inflammation in HAND, in addition to studies exploring the potential use of exosomes in the delivery of central nervous system (CNS)-targeted therapeutics.
Author(s): Suh, Hyeon-Sook; Lo, Yungtai; Choi, Namjong; Letendre, Scott; Lee, Sunhee C | Abstract: BackgroundClinically significant dysregulation of the insulin-like growth factor (IGF) family proteins occurs in HIV-infected individuals, but the details including whether the deficiencies in IGFs contribute to CNS dysfunction are unknown.MethodsWe measured the levels of IGF1, IGF2, IGFBP1, IGFBP2, and IGF2 receptor (IGF2R) in matching plasma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples of 107 HIV+ individuals from CNS HIV Antiretroviral Therapy Effects Research (CHARTER) and analyzed their associations with demographic and disease characteristics, as well as levels of several soluble inflammatory mediators (TNFα, IL-6, IL-10, IL-17, IP-10, MCP-1, and progranulin). We also determined whether IGF1 or IGF2 deficiency is associated with HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND) and whether the levels of soluble IGF2R (an IGF scavenging receptor, which we also have found to be a cofactor for HIV infection in
This study demonstrates the critical role of the brain as a reservoir of HIV that is capable of re-infecting the peripheral organs with the virus, said Jeymohan Joseph, Ph.D., chief of the HIV Neuropathogenesis, Genetics, and Therapeutics Branch at NIHs National Institute of Mental Health, which co-funded the study. The findings suggest that in order to eradicate HIV from the body, cure strategies must address the role of the central nervous system.. HIV attacks the immune system by infecting CD4 positive (CD4+) T cells, a type of white blood cell that is vital to fighting off infection. Without treatment, HIV can destroy CD4+ T cells, reducing the bodys ability to mount an immune response - eventually resulting in AIDS.. cART, which effectively suppresses HIV infections, has helped many people with HIV live longer, healthier lives. But some studies have shown that many patients receiving antiretroviral drugs also show signs of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders, such as thinking and ...
Neuropsychological profile in a specific cohort of HIV patients infected postnatally: a cross-sectional study Silvia Riva,1,2 Ilaria Cutica,1 Gabriella Pravettoni1,3 1Department of Health Sciences, University of Milan, 2Department of Neuroscience, IRCCS, Istituto di Ricerche Farmacologiche "Mario Negri", 3European Institute of Oncology, Milan, Italy Abstract: HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HANDs) are one of the most important complications of HIV infection reported in the current literature. Although HANDs have been closely studied in vertically infected HIV populations or in specific subgroups such as drug abusers or homosexuals, they have been completely understudied in hemophilia patients with HIV, infected through transfusions postnatally. For this reason, it seemed interesting to evaluate the presence of HAND in this specific population. The aim of this work is to present a study protocol aimed at assessing the neuropsychological profile of HIV+ hemophilia patients compared

HIV-1 infection of the brain causes the neurodegenerative syndrome HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND), for which there is no specific treatment. Herein, we investigated the actions of insulin using ex vivo and in vivo models of HAND. Increased neuroinflammatory gene expression was observed in brains from patients with HIV/AIDS. The insulin receptor was detected on both neurons and glia, but its expression was unaffected by HIV-1 infection. Insulin treatment of HIV-infected primary human microglia suppressed supernatant HIV-1 p24 levels, reduced CXCL10 and IL-6 transcript levels, and induced peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-γ) expression. Insulin treatment of primary human neurons prevented HIV-1 Vpr-mediated cell process retraction and death. In feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) infected cats, daily intranasal insulin treatment (20.0 IU/200 μl for 6 weeks) reduced CXCL10, IL-6, and FIV RNA detection in brain, although PPAR-γ in glia was increased compared ...
Objective To investigate the function of homocysteine in neuronal damage in HIV an infection. in both treated and untreated HIV. While this scholarly research struggles to verify a causal hyperlink, homocysteine and useful B12/folate deficiency may actually are likely involved in neural damage in HIV-infected people. 717907-75-0 Introduction Before the breakthrough of effective antiretroviral therapy (Artwork), HIV-infected people had in regards to a 30% general threat of developing HIV-related dementia (HAD) [1]. Today differs However the picture, HIV diagnosis is normally somewhat still connected with HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (Hands). Symptoms of Hands are normal in untreated HIV-positive people and reported by people on suppressive Artwork [2] frequently. Recent studies have got noted increased degrees of cerebrospinal liquid (CSF) neurofilament light proteins (NFL) in HIV-infected people, which is normally interpreted as an indicator of ongoing neuronal damage. Elevated ...
Extracellular vesicles (EVs) are nano-sized particles present in most body fluids including cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Little is known about CSF EV proteins in HIV+ individuals. Here, we characterize the CSF EV proteome in HIV+ subjects and its relationship to neuroinflammation, stress responses, and HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND). CSF EVs isolated from 20 HIV+ subjects with (n = 10) or without (n = 10) cognitive impairment were characterized by electron microscopy, nanoparticle tracking analysis, immunoblotting, and untargeted LC/MS/MS mass spectrometry. Functional annotation was performed by gene ontology (GO) mapping and expression annotation using Biobase Transfac and PANTHER software. Cultured astrocytic U87 cells were treated with hydrogen peroxide for 4 h to induce oxidative stress and EVs isolated by ultracentrifugation. Selected markers of astrocytes (GFAP, GLUL), inflammation (CRP), and stress responses (PRDX2, PARK7, HSP70) were evaluated in EVs released by U87 cells following
Digicaylioglu LAB Principal Investigator: Murat Digicaylioglu, MD Mild cognitive decline that can lead to frank dementia is commonly associated with AIDS and known as HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (or HAND). Drug abuse, particularly with methamphetamine, is often encountered as a co-morbid condition in patients with HAND. We utilize an innovative approach using newly emerging Mass Spectrometry (MS) techniques to identify modifications of proteins caused by free radical damage resulting from AIDS and drug abuse. This work will identify aberrant protein modifications effected by HAND and drug abuse, and thus new potential therapeutic targets as well as biomarkers of the disease process. Astrocytomas are tumors of the brain and are divided into four grades. These tumors are also known as Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) and are extremely aggressive and refractory to chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Due to their malignancy, median survival of these tumors is limited to 14.6 to 24 months.

The pathogenesis of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorder (HAND) is modulated by host genetic susceptibility factorssuch as Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). Promoter polymorphism of MMP-1 and MMP-3 may modify the expression ofthe gene. Hence, we evaluated the association of MMP-1-16072G/1G and MMP-3-1612 5A/6A polymorphisms withdevelopment of HAND and the modulation of pathogenesis of HAND. We enrolled a total of 180 individuals, 50 HIVinfectedindividuals with HAND, 130 without HAND, and 150 healthy controls. Polymorphism of MMP-1 and MMP-3were genotyped by PCR-RFLP. MMP-1-1607 2G1G, -16071G/2G-1G/1G genotypes and -1607 1G allele were associatedwith the development of HAND (OR = 1.64, P = 0.05; OR = 1.45, P = 0.04; OR = 1.69, P = 0.05). MMP-1-16071G1G, MMP-3-16125A5A genotypes increased the risk for the development of HAND (OR = 1.78, P = 0.25;OR = 2.39, P = 0.13). MMP-3-1612 5A5A, -1612 6A/5A-5A/5A genotypes and -1612 5A allele were associated with thereduced risk of HAND (OR = 0.40, P = ...

Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is able to enter from the periphery to the central nervous system, triggering neurocognitive impairment which can be asymptomatic, mild cognitive and motor impairment or in a few cases severe dementia. With the availability and efficacy of antiretroviral therapy, HIV patients have a better quality of life. However, HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) still prevail in near 50% of the treated patients. In this study, we used ELISA to measure neurofilament light chain (NF-L) and neopterin, as markers of neuronal injury and immune activation, respectively. We used plasma and cerebrospinal (CSF) samples obtained from HIV-seropositive (HIV+) patients (n=35) at different stages of HAND, compared to HIV-seronegative controls (n=10). HIV+ patients were subjected to standard laboratory tests (including viral load and CD4+ cell count) and neuropsychological tests (eight domains). Statistical tests included Mann-Whitney, Kruskal-Wallis and Spearmans ...

Cerebrospinal Fluid Neopterin in Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 Infection Bruce J. Brew, MB, FRACP, Ravi B. Bhalla, PhD,? Morris Paul, PhD,* H. Gallardo, MS,* Justin C. McArthur, MBBS,S Morton K. Schwartz, PhD,t and &chard W. Price, MD We evaluated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations of neopterin, a putative marker of activated macrophages, in 97 subjects infected with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 who had a spectrum of neurological complications. The highest CSF neopterin concentrations occurred in those with neurological opportunistic infections, primary central nervous systems lymphoma, and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)dementia complex. In general, the CSF concentration of neopterin was independent of CSF cell count and blood-brain barrier disruption to albumin. In the patients with AIDS dementia complex, CSF neopterin concentrations correlated with severity of disease and decreased in conjunction with clinical improvement following treatment with zidovudine. ...

OBJECTIVE: The influence of confounding neurocognitive comorbidities in people living with HIV (PLWH) on neuroimaging has not been systematically evaluated. We determined associations between comorbidity burden and brain integrity and examined the moderating effect of age on these relationships.DESIGN: Observational, cross-sectional substudy of the CNS HIV Antiretroviral Therapy Effects Research cohort.METHODS: A total of 288 PLWH (mean age = 44.2) underwent structural MRI and magnetic resonance spectroscopy as well as neurocognitive and neuromedical assessments. Consistent with Frascati criteria for HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND), neuromedical and neuropsychiatric comorbidity burden was classified as incidental (mild), contributing (moderate), or confounding (severe-exclusionary) to a diagnosis of HAND. Multiple regression modeling predicted neuroimaging outcomes as a function of comorbidity classification, age, and their interaction.RESULTS: Comorbidity classifications were 176 ...

en] HIV-1 infection of the brain and PAF neurotoxicity are implicated in AIDS dementia complex. We previously reported that a trisubstituted piperazine derivative is able to diminish both HIV-1 replication in monocyte-derived macrophages and PAF-induced platelet aggregation. We report in this work new compounds obtained by modifying its piperazine substituents. The structure-activity relationship study shows that a better dual activity or even pure antiretroviral compounds can be obtained in this series. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved ...
I read with interest the recent article by Cabreet al.1 I make three comments on the section of the review pertaining to HIV disease. I disagree with the statement made on page 551 that chorea is pathognomonic of toxoplasmosis encephalitis in patients with AIDS. Chorea may also occur in patients with AIDS dementia complex (ADC).2 Secondly, there are several errors in table 2. Fluconazole is not given as 400 mg four times a day for acute cryptococcal meningitis therapy but rather as 400 mg/day; fluconazole is not given as 200 mg four times a day for suppressive therapy but rather as 200 mg/day; pyrimethamine is not given at 50-100 mg four times a day for acute toxoplasmosis therapy nor is folinic acid at 10 mg four times a day or sulfadiazine 4-8 g four times a day but rather pyrimethamine 50-100 mg/day, folinic acid 10 mg/day, and sulfadiazine 4-8 g/day; pyrimethamine for suppressive therapy is not given at 25-75 mg four times a day but rather as 25-75 mg/day and folinic acid should be given at ...
The major focus in this laboratory is to elucidate the mechanisms by which leukocytes and pathogens invade the central nervous system (CNS). Movement of both soluble and cellular elements into the CNS is regulated by microvessel endothelial cells comprising the blood-brain barrier (BBB). It is thus believed that alterations in the BBB contribute to the pathogenesis of various neuroinflammatory, neuroinfectious and neurodegenerative diseases such as multiple sclerosis, AIDS dementia complex and Alzheimer disease. To evaluate the role played by the BBB in these disorders, we are employing an in vitro culture model of the human BBB recently developed in this laboratory. ...
Viral diversity and abundance are defining properties of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1s biology and pathogenicity. Despite the increasing availability of antiretroviral therapy, HIV-associated dementia (HAD) continues to be a devastating consequence of HIV-1 infection of the brain although the underlying disease mechanisms remain uncertain. Herein, molecular diversity within the HIV-1 non-structural gene, Vpr, was examined in RNA sequences derived from brain and blood of HIV/AIDS patients with or without HIV-associated dementia (HAD) together with the ensuing pathobiological effects. Cloned brain- and blood-derived full length vpr alleles revealed that amino acid residue 77 within the brain-derived alleles distinguished HAD (77Q) from non-demented (ND) HIV/AIDS patients (77R) (p | 0.05) although vpr transcripts were more frequently detected in HAD brains (p | 0.05). Full length HIV-1 clones encoding the 77R-ND residue induced higher IFN-α, MX1 and BST-2 transcript levels in human glia relative
Dr. Ranga visited the Einstein AITRP twice, once in 2003 and the other time in 2004 to initiate studies on HIV-associated dementia and its correlation to HIV-1 viral subtype differences. In collaboration with Dr. Vinayaka Prasad at Einstein AITRP, Dr. Ranga and his students examined the effect of a natural single amino acid variation in the Tat protein of clade C of HIV-1 on the transactivation and chemokine properties. This collaboration resulted in the identification of the defective chemokine nature of clade C Tat protein and led to the proposition that this variation might contribute to the underrepresentation of HIV-associated dementia in India. This hypothesis garnered much experimental support subsequently by various research groups including that of Dr. Prasads. Dr. Pankaj Serhs laboratory at National Brain Research Centre, New Delhi, India took cue from the hypothesis and investigated into the cytotoxic properties of Tat proteins of viral clades on primary human neurons.

As reported in the Journal of Clinical Oncology by Brinkman et al, a study in the St. Jude Lifetime Cohort showed that adult survivors of pediatric central nervous system (CNS) tumors are at increased risk of severe neurocognitive impairment.. Study Details. The study involved 224 survivors of CNS tumors treated at St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital who had completed neurocognitive testing, had a current median age of 26 years (range = 19-53 years), and were a median of 18 years (range = 11-42 years) from diagnosis. Severe impairment was defined as at least two standard deviations below the normative mean and was compared among patients who received no cranial radiation therapy, focal irradiation, or craniospinal irradiation.. Prevalence of Deficits. Overall, the prevalence of severe neurocognitive impairment ranged from 8% on direct assessment of working memory to 57% on a test of fine motor dexterity. Overall, compared with an estimated overall rate of 2% in the general population, 20% to ...

BACKGROUND: Bipolar disorder (BD) has been associated with dysfunctional resting-state brain functioning. However, it is still not known whether the aberrant functioning occurs and predict cognitive functioning before illness onset. AIMS: We examined the resting-state regional and network dysfunctioning, and their correlates with neurocognitive performance, in the high-risk (HR) and ultra-high-risk (UHR) stages of bipolar disorder. METHODS: Using amplitude of low-frequency fluctuations (ALFF), region homogeneity (ReHo) and hypothesis-driven region-of-interest (ROI)-based connectivity, we examined resting-state fMRI data of 8- to 25-year-old healthy offspring (HR, n = 28) and offspring with subthreshold syndromes (UHR, n = 22) of a BD parent, and age-matched healthy controls without any personal or family psychopathology (HC, n = 46 ...
The neuropsychological consequences of abstinence among older alcoholics: a cross-sectional study. (2000) - BACKGROUND: The older alcoholic has been distinguished from the younger alcoholic with regard to both the acute effects of alcohol and also the recovery of functioning with abstinence. Few studies, however, have included samples of exclusively older subjects. In this investigation we examined the recovery of functioning in an older cohort of recovering alcoholics (age range 55-83) to determine which neuropsychological functions improve and which remain impaired with abstinence. METHODS: We used a cross-sectional design, comparing three demographically matched groups on a battery of neuropsychological tests: (a) older alcoholics who had been abstinent for greater than 6 months, (b) older alcoholics who had been abstinent for less than 6 months, and (c) a control group of older subjects without alcohol abuse histories. RESULTS: In almost all tasks, the alcoholics who were abstinent for less ...
If the M is mathematically impossible (online calculator): This is one of the easiest ways to mathematically detect fraud. The mean (M) is defined as the sum (Sum) of the values of each observation divided by the total number (n) of observations. So: M = Sum/n. Thus: (Sum) = (M) multiplied by (n). We know that, if a variable is always measured as a positive whole number, the sum of these observations always has to be a whole number. For these variables to test for fraud: calculate (M) multiplied by (n). This calculates the Sum which MUST be a positive whole number. If the calculated Sum isnt a positive whole number; the reported mean (M) is mathematically impossible - thus the researcher either cooked the data or made a mistake. A recent study of 260 research papers published in highly reputable psychological journals found that 1 in 2 of these research papers reported at least one impossible value, and 1 in 5 of these research papers reported multiple impossible values. When the authors of ...

HIV-1 neurocognitive disorders (HAND) are extremely widespread, yet not all HIV-positive individuals develop HAND and there are significant differences in clinical presentation and severity among those who do. In this chapter, we discuss genetic factors in both the host and the virus that can play a role in, and can produce variations in the extent of, HIV neuropathogenesis. The presentation focuses on, and distinguishes among, host determinants, virus-encoded determinants, and clade-related determinants of neuropathogeneis. The neuropathogenic stages of neuroinvasion, neurotropism, and neurovirulence provide a framework for much of the discussion. In many cases, pathogenic factors are mediated through the interaction of toxic viral proteins and host inflammatory molecules. Non-genetic host factors, which can contribute to an individuals neurosusceptibility (such factors include age, immune status, medication compliance, hepatitis C status, illicit drug use, and nutritional status) are not ...
Program abstract Conclusions: Prior studies have linked the HIV DNA reservoir size to NCI and our findings identify that this association is strongest in HIV+ adults older than 50, along with IL-8, which we have previously linked to evidence of inflammation on brain magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
