Amyloid Neuropathies: Disorders of the peripheral nervous system associated with the deposition of AMYLOID in nerve tissue. Familial, primary (nonfamilial), and secondary forms have been described. Some familial subtypes demonstrate an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. Clinical manifestations include sensory loss, mild weakness, autonomic dysfunction, and CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1349)Amyloid Neuropathies, Familial: Inherited disorders of the peripheral nervous system associated with the deposition of AMYLOID in nerve tissue. The different clinical types based on symptoms correspond to the presence of a variety of mutations in several different proteins including transthyretin (PREALBUMIN); APOLIPOPROTEIN A-I; and GELSOLIN.Prealbumin: A tetrameric protein, molecular weight between 50,000 and 70,000, consisting of 4 equal chains, and migrating on electrophoresis in 3 fractions more mobile than serum albumin. Its concentration ranges from 7 to 33 per cent in the serum, but levels decrease in liver disease.Amyloidosis: A group of sporadic, familial and/or inherited, degenerative, and infectious disease processes, linked by the common theme of abnormal protein folding and deposition of AMYLOID. As the amyloid deposits enlarge they displace normal tissue structures, causing disruption of function. Various signs and symptoms depend on the location and size of the deposits.Amyloid: A fibrous protein complex that consists of proteins folded into a specific cross beta-pleated sheet structure. This fibrillar structure has been found as an alternative folding pattern for a variety of functional proteins. Deposits of amyloid in the form of AMYLOID PLAQUES are associated with a variety of degenerative diseases. The amyloid structure has also been found in a number of functional proteins that are unrelated to disease.Diabetic Neuropathies: 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. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1325)Amyloid beta-Peptides: Peptides generated from AMYLOID BETA-PEPTIDES PRECURSOR. An amyloid fibrillar form of these peptides is the major component of amyloid plaques found in individuals with Alzheimer's disease and in aged individuals with trisomy 21 (DOWN SYNDROME). The peptide is found predominantly in the nervous system, but there have been reports of its presence in non-neural tissue.Serum Amyloid A Protein: An ACUTE PHASE REACTION protein present in low concentrations in normal sera, but found at higher concentrations in sera of older persons and in patients with AMYLOIDOSIS. It is the circulating precusor of amyloid A protein, which is found deposited in AA type AMYLOID FIBRILS.Peripheral Nervous System Diseases: Diseases of the peripheral nerves external to the brain and spinal cord, which includes diseases of the nerve roots, ganglia, plexi, autonomic nerves, sensory nerves, and motor nerves.Amyloid beta-Protein Precursor: A single-pass type I membrane protein. It is cleaved by AMYLOID PRECURSOR PROTEIN SECRETASES to produce peptides of varying amino acid lengths. A 39-42 amino acid peptide, AMYLOID BETA-PEPTIDES is a principal component of the extracellular amyloid in SENILE PLAQUES.Plaque, Amyloid: Accumulations of extracellularly deposited AMYLOID FIBRILS within tissues.Hereditary Sensory and Motor Neuropathy: A group of slowly progressive inherited disorders affecting motor and sensory peripheral nerves. Subtypes include HMSNs I-VII. HMSN I and II both refer to CHARCOT-MARIE-TOOTH DISEASE. HMSN III refers to hypertrophic neuropathy of infancy. HMSN IV refers to REFSUM DISEASE. HMSN V refers to a condition marked by a hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy associated with spastic paraplegia (see SPASTIC PARAPLEGIA, HEREDITARY). HMSN VI refers to HMSN associated with an inherited optic atrophy (OPTIC ATROPHIES, HEREDITARY), and HMSN VII refers to HMSN associated with retinitis pigmentosa. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1343)Islet Amyloid Polypeptide: A pancreatic beta-cell hormone that is co-secreted with INSULIN. It displays an anorectic effect on nutrient metabolism by inhibiting gastric acid secretion, gastric emptying and postprandial GLUCAGON secretion. Islet amyloid polypeptide can fold into AMYLOID FIBRILS that have been found as a major constituent of pancreatic AMYLOID DEPOSITS.Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy: A heterogeneous group of sporadic or familial disorders characterized by AMYLOID deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of CEREBRAL CORTEX and MENINGES. Clinical features include multiple, small lobar CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE; cerebral ischemia (BRAIN ISCHEMIA); and CEREBRAL INFARCTION. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is unrelated to generalized AMYLOIDOSIS. Amyloidogenic peptides in this condition are nearly always the same ones found in ALZHEIMER DISEASE. (from Kumar: Robbins and Cotran: Pathologic Basis of Disease, 7th ed., 2005)Hereditary Sensory and Autonomic Neuropathies: A group of inherited disorders characterized by degeneration of dorsal root and autonomic ganglion cells, and clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. There are five subtypes. Type I features autosomal dominant inheritance and distal sensory involvement. Type II is characterized by autosomal inheritance and distal and proximal sensory loss. Type III is DYSAUTONOMIA, FAMILIAL. Type IV features insensitivity to pain, heat intolerance, and mental deficiency. Type V is characterized by a selective loss of pain with intact light touch and vibratory sensation. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1995, Ch51, pp142-4)Optic Neuropathy, Ischemic: Ischemic injury to the OPTIC NERVE which usually affects the OPTIC DISK (optic neuropathy, anterior ischemic) and less frequently the retrobulbar portion of the nerve (optic neuropathy, posterior ischemic). The injury results from occlusion of arterial blood supply which may result from TEMPORAL ARTERITIS; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; COLLAGEN DISEASES; EMBOLISM; DIABETES MELLITUS; and other conditions. The disease primarily occurs in the sixth decade or later and presents with the sudden onset of painless and usually severe monocular visual loss. Anterior ischemic optic neuropathy also features optic disk edema with microhemorrhages. The optic disk appears normal in posterior ischemic optic neuropathy. (Glaser, Neuro-Ophthalmology, 2nd ed, p135)Serum Amyloid P-Component: Amyloid P component is a small, non-fibrillar glycoprotein found in normal serum and in all amyloid deposits. It has a pentagonal (pentaxin) structure. It is an acute phase protein, modulates immunologic responses, inhibits ELASTASE, and has been suggested as an indicator of LIVER DISEASE.Polyneuropathies: 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.Sural Nerve: A branch of the tibial nerve which supplies sensory innervation to parts of the lower leg and foot.Amyloid Precursor Protein Secretases: Endopeptidases that are specific for AMYLOID PROTEIN PRECURSOR. Three secretase subtypes referred to as alpha, beta, and gamma have been identified based upon the region of amyloid protein precursor they cleave.Alzheimer Disease: A degenerative disease of the BRAIN characterized by the insidious onset of DEMENTIA. Impairment of MEMORY, judgment, attention span, and problem solving skills are followed by severe APRAXIAS and a global loss of cognitive abilities. The condition primarily occurs after age 60, and is marked pathologically by severe cortical atrophy and the triad of SENILE PLAQUES; NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES; and NEUROPIL THREADS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1049-57)

Transthyretin Leu12Pro is associated with systemic, neuropathic and leptomeningeal amyloidosis. (1/76)

We report a middle-aged woman with a novel transthyretin (TTR) variant, Leu12Pro. She had extensive amyloid deposition in the leptomeninges and liver as well as the involvement of the heart and peripheral nervous system which characterizes familial amyloid polyneuropathy caused by variant TTR. Clinical features attributed to her leptomeningeal amyloid included radiculopathy, central hypoventilation, recurrent subarachnoid haemorrhage, depression, seizures and periods of decreased consciousness. MRI showed a marked enhancement throughout her meninges and ependyma, and TTR amyloid deposition was confirmed by meningeal biopsy. The simultaneous presence of extensive visceral amyloid and clinically significant deposits affecting both the peripheral and central nervous system extends the spectrum of amyloid-related disease associated with TTR mutations. The unusual association of severe peripheral neuropathy with symptoms of leptomeningeal amyloid indicates that leptomeningeal amyloidosis should be considered part of the syndrome of TTR-related familial amyloid polyneuropathy.  (+info)

Phase I trial of dolastatin-10 (NSC 376128) in patients with advanced solid tumors. (2/76)

Dolastatin-10 (dola-10) is a potent antimitotic peptide, isolated from the marine mollusk Dolabela auricularia, that inhibits tubulin polymerization. Preclinical studies of dola-10 have demonstrated activity against a variety of murine and human tumors in cell cultures and mice models. The purpose of this Phase I clinical trial was to characterize the maximum tolerated dose, pharmacokinetics, and biological effects of dola-10 in patients with advanced solid tumors. Escalating doses of dola-10 were administered as an i.v. bolus every 21 days, using a modified Fibonacci dose escalation schema. Pharmacokinetic studies were performed with the first treatment cycle. Neurological testing was performed on each patient prior to treatment with dola-10, at 6 weeks and at study termination. Thirty eligible patients received a total of 94 cycles (median, 2 cycles; maximum, 14 cycles) of dola-10 at doses ranging from 65 to 455 microg/m2. Dose-limiting toxicity of granulocytopenia was seen at 455 microg/m2 for minimally pretreated patients (two or fewer prior chemotherapy regimens) and 325 microg/m2 for heavily pretreated patients (more than two prior chemotherapy regimens). Nonhematological toxicity was generally mild. Local irritation at the drug injection site was mild and not dose dependent. Nine patients developed new or increased symptoms of mild peripheral sensory neuropathy that was not dose limiting. This toxicity was more frequent in patients with preexisting peripheral neuropathies. Pharmacokinetic studies demonstrated a rapid drug distribution with a prolonged plasma elimination phase (t 1/2z = 320 min). The area under the concentration-time curve increased in proportion to administered dose, whereas the clearance remained constant over the doses studied. Correlation analysis demonstrated a strong relationship between dola-10 area under the concentration-time curve values and decrease from baseline for leukocyte counts. In conclusion, dola-10 administered every 3 weeks as a peripheral i.v. bolus is well tolerated with dose-limiting toxicity of granulocytopenia. The maximum tolerated dose (and recommended Phase II starting dose) is 400 microg/m2 for patients with minimal prior treatment (two or fewer prior chemotherapy regimens) and 325 microg/m2 for patients who are heavily pretreated (more than two prior chemotherapy regimens).  (+info)

1H-NMR structural studies of a cystine-linked peptide containing residues 71-93 of transthyretin and effects of a Ser84 substitution implicated in familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy. (3/76)

The Ile-->Ser84 substitution in the thyroid hormone transport protein transthyretin is one of over 50 variations found to be associated with familial amyloid polyneuropathy, a hereditary type of lethal amyloidosis. Using a peptide analogue of the loop containing residue 84 in transthyretin, we have examined the putative local structural effects of this substitution using 1H-NMR spectroscopy. The peptide, containing residues 71-93 of transthyretin with its termini linked via a disulfide bond, was found to possess the same helix-turn motif as in the corresponding region of the crystallographically derived structure of transthyretin in 20% trifluoroethanol (TFE) solution. It therefore, represents a useful model with which to examine the effects of amyloidogenic substitutions. In a peptide analogue containing the Ile84-->Ser substitution it was found that the substitution does not greatly disrupt the overall three-dimensional structure, but leads to minor local differences at the turn in which residue 84 is involved. Coupling constant and NOE measurements indicate that the helix-turn motif is still present, but differences in chemical shifts and amide-exchange rates reflect a small distortion. This is in keeping with observations that several other mutant forms of transthyretin display similar subunit interactions and those that have been structurally analysed possess a near native structure. We propose that the Ser84 mutation induces only subtle perturbations to the transthyretin structure which predisposes the protein to amyloid formation.  (+info)

Role of sympathetic nervous system in cyclosporine-induced rise in blood pressure. (4/76)

To clarify the role of the sympathetic nervous system in the development of cyclosporine A (CsA)-induced rise in blood pressure (BP), the effects of CsA on 24-hour ambulatory BP (ABP) were studied in patients with familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP) who underwent a liver transplantation. On the basis of autonomic function tests, patients with absent or mild-to-moderate sympathetic damage (Group A, n=11, age 29 to 43 years, disease duration 2 to 6 years) and patients with severe sympathetic damage (Group B, n=9, age 27 to 38 years, disease duration 3 to 9 years) were identified. Both groups were followed for 1 year. The daily doses of CsA and the CsA whole blood trough levels between the groups did not differ. Pretransplantation values of daytime and nighttime ABP were, respectively, 117+/-8/76+/-7 mm Hg and 108+/-12/68+/-9 mm Hg in group A and 107+/-6/66+/-4 mm Hg (P<0.05 group A versus group B) and 102+/-6/62+/-4 mm Hg in group B. In response to CsA, BP increased in all patients, but more so in patients of group B than in patients of group A. One year after transplantation, daytime and nighttime ABP had increased by 6+/-9/3+/-11% and 12+/-10/14+/-14% in group A and by 12+/-6/13+/-10% (P<0.05) and 21+/-11/27+/-21% (P<0.01) in group B. In both groups, the increase in nighttime ABP was greater than the increase in daytime ABP, which resulted in an attenuation or, even, a reversal of the diurnal BP rhythm. Because the rise in BP was greater in patients with more advanced sympathetic dysfunction, the sympathetic nervous system appears to counteract the CsA-induced rise in BP rather than causing it. This implies involvement of factors other than sympathetic activation in the pathogenesis of CsA-induced rise in BP in patients with familial amyloid polyneuropathy.  (+info)

Identification of a new transthyretin variant (Ile49) in familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy using electrospray ionization mass spectrometry and nonisotopic RNase cleavage assay. (5/76)

Mutation of the transthyretin (TTR) plasma protein and gene in a Japanese patient with amyloid polyneuropathy was investigated by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) and nonisotopic RNase cleavage assay (NIRCA), respectively. ESI-MS analysis showed normal TTR peaks and additionally a variant TTR with 12-dalton-higher molecular weight than normal TTR. NIRCA suggested that the mutation existed near either the 5' or 3' end of exon 3. Direct DNA sequencing revealed both a normal ACC (threonine) and a variant ATC (isoleucine) at codon 49, which was located near the 5' end of exon 3. The molecular weight shift of this mutation was 12 D, consistent with the result of ESI-MS.  (+info)

Regulation of neural differentiation by normal and mutant (G654A, amyloidogenic) gelsolin. (6/76)

Gelsolin belongs to a family of proteins that modulate the structural dynamics of cytoskeletal actin. Gelsolin activity is required for the redistribution of actin occurring during membrane ruffling, cell crawling, and platelet activation. A point mutation (G654A) in the gelsolin gene causes a dominantly inherited systemic amyloidosis called familial amyloidosis of the Finnish type (FAF). This disease is characterized by a cranial neuropathy that cannot be explained solely by amyloid deposits. To address the question of whether gelsolin has a specific role in neural cell development, we transfected cDNA for wild type and G654A point-mutated gelsolin into a neural cell line, Paju, which can be induced to differentiate by treatment with phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate. Overexpressed wild type gelsolin inhibited neural differentiation whereas mutated gelsolin did not, indicating that appropriate gelsolin activity is essential for neural sprouting. The G654A mutant gelsolin induced stabilization of F-actin and reduced the plasticity of neural development. This provides a novel etiopathogenetic mechanism for the neuronal dysfunction in FAF.  (+info)

Two pairs of proven monozygotic twins discordant for familial amyloid neuropathy (FAP) TTR Met 30. (7/76)

Twin studies are an important tool in medical genetics for the evaluation of the relative roles of genetic and non-genetic factors in several diseases. Familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy type I (FAP-I), TTR Met 30, was present in two sets of proven monozygotic (MZ) twins, one from Majorca and the other from Portugal. Monozygosity was established by analysis of DNA polymorphisms. Both pairs were discordant for age at onset and some clinical manifestations of FAP-I. We reviewed the differences in age at onset and clinical features in both sets and in two other pairs of presumed MZ twins with FAP-I and compared them with those in MZ twin pairs with other Mendelian disorders, such as neurofibromatosis type 1, Huntington's disease, facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy, and myotonic dystrophy. We conclude that, in addition to the postulated modifying genes, there must be a significant contribution from non-genetic factors to the phenotypic variability of FAP-I (age at onset and clinical expression), either because of environmental differences or stochastic events during (or after) the twinning process.  (+info)

Late-onset familial amyloid polyneuropathy type I (transthyretin Met30-associated familial amyloid polyneuropathy) unrelated to endemic focus in Japan. Clinicopathological and genetic features. (8/76)

Clinicopathological and genetic features were assessed on 35 Japanese families affected by late-onset familial amyloid polyneuropathy type I (transthyretin Met30-associated familial amyloid polyneuropathy, FAP TTR Met30) whose siblings were unrelated to endemic Japanese foci. In these patients (50 years or older), the most common initial symptom was paraesthesias in the legs. Autonomic symptoms were generally mild and did not seriously affect daily activities. The male-to-female ratio was extremely high (10.7 : 1). A family history was evident in only 11 out of 35 families, and other patients were apparently sporadic. The rate of penetrance was very low. Symptomatic siblings of familial cases showed a late age of onset, male preponderance and clinical features similar to those of the probands. Asymptomatic carriers, predominantly female, were detected relatively late in life. The geographical distribution of these late-onset, FAP TTR Met30 cases was scattered throughout Japan. In three autopsy cases and 20 sural nerve biopsy specimens, neurons in sympathetic and sensory ganglia were relatively preserved. Amyloid deposition was seen in the peripheral nervous system, particularly in the sympathetic ganglia, dorsal root ganglia and proximal nerve trunks such as sciatic nerve. These abnormalities were milder than those seen in typical early-onset FAP TTR Met30, as observed in two Japanese endemic foci of this disease. While axonal degeneration was prominent in myelinated fibres, resulting in severe fibre loss, unmyelinated fibres were relatively preserved. Our cases of late-onset FAP TTR Met30 showed features distinct from those of typical early-onset FAP TTR Met30 that occurred in the two Japanese endemic foci. Factors responsible for clinicopathological differences between these two forms of FAP TTR Met30 need to be identified.  (+info)

Familial amyloid polyneuropathy type I is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by mutations in the transthyretin (TTR) gene; however, carriers of the same mutation exhibit variability in penetrance and clinical expression. We analyzed alleles of candidate genes encoding non-fibrillar components of TTR amyloid deposits and a molecule metabolically interacting with TTR [retinol-binding protein (RBP)], for possible associations with age of disease onset and/or susceptibility in a Portuguese population sample with the TTR V30M mutation and unrelated controls. We show that the V30M carriers represent a distinct subset of the Portuguese population. Estimates of genetic distance indicated that the controls and the classical-onset group were furthest apart, whereas the late-onset group appeared to differ from both. Importantly, the data also indicate that genetic interactions among the multiple loci evaluated, rather than single-locus effects, are more likely to determine differences in the age of ...

Familial Amyloid Polyneuropathy (FAP) is a rare, hereditary disease caused by mutations in the transthyretin (TTR) protein. TTR is made by the liver and secreted into the blood. TTR mutations cause it to misfold and deposit in multiple organs causing FAP.. IONIS-TTR Rx is an antisense drug that is designed to decrease the amount of mutant and normal TTR made by the liver. It is predicted that decreasing the amount of TTR protein will result in a decrease in the formation of TTR deposits, and thus slow or stop disease progression.. The purpose of this study is to determine if IONIS-TTR Rx can slow or stop the nerve damage caused by TTR deposits. This study will enroll late Stage 1 and early Stage 2 FAP patients. Patients will receive either IONIS-TTR Rx or placebo for 65 weeks. ...

Results Women had a significantly higher AO, either for daughters (mean: 33.70, SD: 6.84) vs sons (29.43, 6.08); or mothers (39.57, 11.75) vs fathers (35.62, 11.62). Also, 291 pairs showed marked anticipation (≥10 years); the transmitting parent was the mother in 203 pairs. Mother-son pairs showed larger anticipation (10.43, 9.34), while father-daughter pairs showed only a residual anticipation (1.23, 9.77). Gender of offspring and parents was highly significant (with no interaction). To remove possible biases, we repeated analyses: (1) excluding the proband; (2) removing pairs with simultaneous onset; and (3) excluding offspring born after 1960. Anticipation was found in all subsamples, with the same trend for a parent-of-origin effect. Noteworthy, parents with AO ≤40 years never had offspring with AO ≥50.. ...

Per Hammarstr�m, Frank Schneider, and Jeffery W. Kelly http://sageke.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/abstract/sageke;2001/2/or18 Abstract: Science 293, 2459-2462 (2001).. The transthyretin (TTR) amyloid diseases, representative of numerous misfolding disorders, are of considerable interest because there are mutations that cause or suppress disease. The Val30>Met30 (V30M) TTR mutation is the most prevalent cause of familial amyloid polyneuropathy in heterozygotes, whereas a Thr119>Met119 (T119M) mutation on the second TTR allele protects V30M carriers from disease. Here, we show that the incorporation of one or more T119M TTR subunits into a predominantly V30M tetramer strongly stabilized the mixed tetramer against dissociation. Dissociation is required for amyloid formation, so these findings provide a molecular explanation for intragenic trans-suppression of amyloidosis. The data also suggest a potential therapeutic strategy, provide insight into tissue-specific deposition and amyloid composition, ...
Transthyretin familial amyloid polyneuropathy (TTR-FAP) is a progressive, fatal, inherited disorder first identified in Portugal and now recognized in all continents. Over the past decade, thanks to the availability of the genetic test, our knowledge on the range of clinical expressions of this disorder has expanded, including different patterns and progression rates of the neuropathy, as well as aspects of the cardiomyopathy, which can be prominent. In the mean time, new tools are being developed to detect earlier TTR amyloid deposition such as cardiac scintigraphy with technetium-labelled pyrophosphate tracers or small nerve fiber alterations from skin biopsies, or using neurophysiological approaches as well as magnetic resonance neurography (MRN ...

Could the amyloid hypothesis have scored its first success? The European Medicines Agency (EMA) is poised to approve a drug that acts by blocking amyloid formation in a rare inherited disease, familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP). The disease attacks the peripheral nervous system, kidneys, and heart, robbing people of the ability to walk and leading to death within 10 years. FAP is caused by mutations in transthyretin that make the proteins normal tetrameric state unstable, causing it to fall apart into monomers that then clump into amyloid (see, e.g., Colon et al., 1996). The new drug, tafamidis, acts by stabilizing the transthyretin tetramer, preventing it from dissociating. In clinical trials, people who took the drug maintained whatever leg strength and sensation they started with, showing only minimal deterioration over 30 months, and their autonomic nervous system function seemed to improve. The outcomes are in sharp contrast to the normal rapid deterioration seen with the disease. If ...
OBJECTIVE: To systematically study peripheral nerve morphology in patients with transthyretin (TTR) amyloidosis and TTR gene mutation carriers using high-resolution ultrasonography (US). METHODS: In this prospective cross-sectional study we took a structured history, performed neurological examination, and measured peripheral nerve cross-sectional areas (CSAs) bilaterally at 28 standard locations using US. Demographic and US findings were compared to controls. RESULTS: Peripheral nerve CSAs were significantly larger in 33 patients with familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP) compared to 50 controls, most dramatically at the common entrapment sites (median nerve at the wrist, ulnar nerve at the elbow), and in the proximal nerve segments (median nerve in the upper arm, sciatic nerve in the thigh ...

There are some interesting points in the study from the Sun lab that seem to add to general themes found in diseases associated with amyloid aggregation. In all of these diseases, inclusions consisting of an endogenously produced protein mark the progression of the disease. What exactly causes the previously soluble and physiological form of the protein to change conformation into a pathological form and aggregate is in most cases unclear.. In the case of transthyretin (TTR), a serum protein involved in familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy, a destabilization event induced by either a missense mutation or an external insult leads to depolymerization of the natively tetrameric protein, which then leaves it open to amyloidogenic polymerization (Quintas et al., 1999). The native form, stabilized by its natural ligand thyroxin, is aggregation-resistant. Our lab has recently discovered that a very similar situation can be found for α-synuclein (αS), a mostly neuronally expressed protein of unknown ...

The pathophysiology of the hemodynamic responses to postural stress in familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP) remains to be elucidated. The aim of the study was to evaluate hemodynamic responses after tilt reversal in FAP. Systolic blood pressure (BP) and heart rate variability (HRV) were analyzed in the baseline, 70° upright position, and after tilt reversal in 15 FAP patients and 14 healthy controls. Beat-to-beat BP was recorded with a Finapres device. Maximum systolic BP after tilt reversal was increased with 22±13 mm Hg in FAP patients as compared with baseline (BP overshoot), whereas controls showed a significantly lower BP overshoot (8±6 mm Hg, P,0.001). In all states, total spectral power and the power of the low and high frequency components were all significantly lower than those of the controls (P,0.01). In a linear regression analysis adjusted for age, we found a significant inverse relation between BP overshoot and HRV (total spectral power, power of the low-frequency and ...

Tetanus is an eminently preventable disease, now almost wiped out in developed countries by simple immunisation. It however continues its pillage and plunder in the developing world. It strikes young and old alike, often invading the body through innocuous wounds. Tetanus is caused by tetanospasmin and tetanolysin, the deadly toxins of the bacterium Clostridium tetani. The disease is classified as generalised, localised, cephalic, or neonatal tetanus. It is characterised by painful spasms which manifest as lockjaw (trismus), facial contortions (risus sardonicus), trunkal rigidity (opisthotonus), and vocal cord spasms (laryngospasm). The disease is awfully distressing and, when advanced, untreatable. It is a stain on the world that this avoidable disorder continuous to threaten a large number of its inhabitants. Check neurochecklists for more on the pathology, clinical features, and management of tetanus.. ...
BACKGROUND: This study investigated whether a relationship exists between the presence of de novo antibodies and the clinical manifestations of familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP). METHODS: Serum samples were collected from 25 Japanese and 6 Swedish FAP amyloidogenic transthyretin (ATTR) Valine30Methionine (V30M) patients, 4 asymptomatic Japanese ATTR V30M gene carriers, and 24 Japanese healthy volunteers. Study methods included enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and mass spectrometry. RESULTS: Three Japanese and 5 Swedish patients had significantly higher levels of antibodies against ATTR than did healthy volunteers and asymptomatic gene carriers (P,0.05). All 8 patients with higher antibody levels were late-onset cases. The ratio of wild-type TTR to ATTR V30M in serum from the high-antibody group was higher than that of the low-antibody group. ELISA results revealed two epitopes at positions 24-35 and 105-115 of ATTR V30M. We found a significant positive correlation between levels ...
Familial amyloidotic polineuropathy is a genetic disorder, leading to systemic amyloid deposits, manifested as sensory-motor and autonomic neuropathy. In the Portuguese classical form, the disease is evident at a young age, and causes death if no specific treatment is received. Variability in penetrance, age of onset and clinical course has been published; environmental and genetic factors are believed to contribute to this variability. The authors report a case of a 51-year-old white female, with a medical history of acquired angioedema, late-onset familial amyloidotic polineuropathy and systemic lupus erythemathosus. The authors consider that these associated diseases could modulate their expression ...

The liver has become an increasingly interesting target for oligonucleotide therapy. Mutations of the gene encoding transthyretin (TTR), expressed in vast amounts by the liver, result in a complex degenerative disease, termed familial amyloid polyneuropathy (FAP). Misfolded variants of TTR are linked to the establishment of extracellular protein deposition in various tissues, including the heart and the peripheral nervous system. Recent progress in the chemistry and formulation of antisense (ASO) and small interfering RNA (siRNA) designed for a knockdown of TTR mRNA in the liver has allowed to address the issue of gene-specific molecular therapy in a clinical setting of FAP. The two therapeutic oligonucleotides bind to RNA in a sequence specific manner but exploit different mechanisms. Here we describe major developments that have led to the advent of therapeutic oligonucleotides for treatment of TTR-related disease.. ...

The efficacy of the IgG1κ c11-1F4 mAb to accelerate amyloidolysis in our in vivo amyloidoma model was compared with that of the murine parent. Because the 22C1-, 22C5-, and 22D2-derived c11-1F4 preparations exhibited equivalent reactivity with amyloid and there were limited quantities of each, the three were combined and used in our in vivo experiments. Given the relatively large amount of amyloid extract required to produce a readily palpable amyloidoma (dry weight, 100 mg) and the scarcity of autopsy-derived samples, the numbers of animals used in each study was necessarily restricted to one pair of mice. In the first experiment, four sets were injected s.c. with a 1-ml volume of solution containing 100 mg of a human ALκ extract (Ref. 19 ; patient HIG) that was comprised of fragments (∼16 and 18 kDa) representing the major portion of the amyloidogenic precursor κ1 light chain (BJP, HIG), as demonstrated by SDS-PAGE, Western blot, and chemical analyses. By dot blot, the c11-1F4 mAb, as ...

In the present study, we found complete defects on MIBG myocardial scans in 8 of 12 patients and limited uptake in the remaining 4 in association with severe systemic autonomic dysfunction. The incidence and magnitude of myocardial accumulation of MIBG were independent of clinical findings, including neurologic disabilities, duration of the illness, extent of endomyocardial amyloid deposition, ECG QRS voltage and ventricular wall thickness. These findings strongly suggest that cardiac adrenergic denervation due to autonomic nervous degeneration ([28]) accounts for alterations in I-123 MIBG myocardial imaging in patients with familial amyloid polyneuropathy. The presence of small localized concentrations of MIBG in the LV anterior wall in some patients indicates that myocardial sympathetic innervation is not equally impaired in this disease.. As we have previously reported ([34]), Tc-99m PYP scintigraphy may have the potential to detect early myocardial amyloid infiltration in patients with ...

Amyloidosis is a disorder resulting from the abnormal deposition of a particular protein in various tissues of the body. The four most common forms of amyloidosis are: (1) light chain due to immunoglobulins; (2) secondary which is seen in chronic inflammatory states such as rheumatoid arthritis; (3) senile which is typically seen in those over the age of 80; and (4) heriditary. There are at least eight different proteins that have been recognized to cause the hereditary amyloidoses [2]. Of these, the amyloidgenicTTR (ATTR) protein is the most common, with the Val30Met (Portuguese type) being the most prevalent mutation causing ATTR (80% of cases) [2]. The most common manifestation of ATTR is a neuropathy, but clinical manifestations vary depending on the location of the mutation.

The 44-year-old man in this study was presented with sudden-onset, persistent epigastralgia and had undergone living donor living transplantation (LDLT) for familial amyloid polyneuropathy at 42 years of age, with the left hepatic lobe graft donated by his wife. During LT, biliary reconstruction was performed by hepaticojejunostomy with a Roux limb via the antecolic route as the common bile duct was removed for the sake of the following domino LT. The peritoneal defect related to Roux-en-Y anastomosis was primarily closed with several 4-0 silk interrupted sutures. Although he had experienced repeated episodes of small bowel obstruction, which had all recovered fully following conservative management, at 5, 9, and 14 months post-transplantation, continuous epigastralgia and repeated vomiting for 7 h during the present admission prompted clinical suspicion of bowel strangulation. Abdominal guarding and rigidity in the epigastric region were noted on examination. The body temperature was 37.1 °C. ...

Alzheimers Disease. As people live longer, thanks to better nutrition, healthcare and improved working conditions, an increasing number of elderly patients are being diagnosed with Alzheimers disease, involving the long-term loss of memory. Now scientists at the Scripps Research Institute have discovered that a protein could help in the prevention or delay of this disease.1. The protein transthyretin (TTR) is formed as a "tetramer", a four-unit structure. Old age can cause the tetramers to disintegrate into aggregates called amyloids, accumulating in various organs and causing diseases. In the mid-1990s, however, several laboratories indicated that TTR in the brain might actually protect against other amyloids such as amyloid beta, associated with Alzheimers disease.. In transgenic "Alzheimers mice", which overproduce amyloid beta, TTR overproduction was found to reduce the memory deficits of the mice. Further experiments showed that TTR tetramers bind to amyloid beta, inhibiting it from ...

The most common variety of FAP is due to dominantly inherited TTR gene mutations which are particularly prevalent in Portugal, Sweden and Japan. Patients usually present in their thirties with a distal painful sensory neuropathy followed by motor and pronounced autonomic dysfunction. Patients may benefit from liver transplantation because the mutated TTR is primarily generated in the liver. Tafamidis, a drug that
Familial transthyretin amyloidosis (ATTR) is a rare, life-threatening, autosomal dominant disease involving mainly the heart and the peripheral nervous system due to a point mutation of the transthyretin (TTR) gene. By removing the main source of the mutated TTR, liver transplantation (LT) has become the standard treatment for ATTR (1). Because the demand for liver grafts exceeds the number of available organs and because new treatments have recently emerged, screening patients at high risk of death after LT is critical (2).. We identified 215 consecutive patients who underwent LT between 1993 and 2011. The diagnosis was made by the observation of both amyloid deposits in biopsy specimens and a TTR mutation. The pre-operative evaluation included physical examination, electrocardiography, echocardiography, autonomic dysfunction score, and polyneuropathy disability score (PND) calculation. The primary study endpoint was all-cause mortality after LT. The prognostic model predicting the individual ...
Description: This topic is a new entry in the area of cellular calcium signaling: yet, it now spans the entire area, with discoveries that cover both genetic and acquired pathologies, even offering glimpses in the direction of therapy. Cellular calcium homeostasis, and thus calcium signalling, is mainly regulated by membrane intrinsic proteins and calcium sensor proteins. Both classes may be involved in pathological processes that affect both human and animals, ranging from common and important diseases (e.g. migraine, diabetes, epilepsia, manic depression, infertility, various types of cancer, Alzheimers disease, muscular dystrophy) to rare genetic conditions (e.g., a number of genetic heart conditions, autoimmune retinopathies, night blindness, hereditary amyloid polyneuropathy, malignant hyperthermia, cerebellar ataxia, atherothrombotic disease). Clearly, the topic has now become not only very large, but also very stimulating. Its extensive critical coverage is likely to eventually stimulate ...
Transthyretin (TTR) is one of thirty non-homologous proteins whose misfolding, dissociation, aggregation, and deposition is linked to human amyloid diseases. Previous studies have identified that TTR amyloidogenesis can be inhibited through stabilization of the native tetramer state by small molecule binding to the thyroid hormone sites of TTR. We have evaluated a new series of β-aminoxypropionic acids (compounds 5-21), with a single aromatic moiety (aryl or fluorenyl) linked through a flexible oxime tether to a carboxylic acid. These compounds are structurally distinct from the native ligand thyroxine and typical halogenated biaryl NSAID-like inhibitors to avoid off-target hormonal or anti-inflammatory activity. Based on an in vitro fibril formation assay, five of these compounds showed significant inhibition of TTR amyloidogenesis, with two fluorenyl compounds displaying inhibitor efficacy comparable to the well-known TTR inhibitor diflunisal. Fluorenyl 15 is the most potent compound in this series

TY - JOUR. T1 - Pathogenesis of transthyretin amyloidosis. AU - Benson, Merrill. PY - 2012/6. Y1 - 2012/6. N2 - Current dogma for transthyretin (TTR) pathogenesis is that mutations in TTR alter its structure such that the tetramer becomes unstable and prone to release of monomer which then becomes the putative building block of the fibril. This hypothesis is supported by thermodynamic data showing decreased stability of mutant TTR tetrameric proteins and accelerated fibril formation under acidic conditions in vitro. There are, however, a number of questions that are not readily answered by this simplistic model of a very complex disease. Worrisome questions still to be answered include: 1. If the monomer is the precursor of the fibril, why do fibril deposits contain large amounts of wild-type TTR and not just variant 2. If destabilized tetramers can form fibrils in vitro, why do we consistently find partial proteolysis of fibril subunit proteins If enzymatic proteolysis is a required step in ...
Their purpose is to prevent the formation of new deposits of amyloidosis by stabilising Transthyretin and blocking its production. The treatments available so far are only able to slow down the progression and even to stop it but not to get rid of the symptoms already present.. a) Liver transplant The purpose of a liver transplant is to remove the main organ producing abnormal TTR protein even if the liver is functioning perfectly well otherwise. A liver transplant is a complicated operation that needs to be performed in a specialized centre.. This treatment has been offered to over 2000 patients worldwide. It has been effective in stopping the progression of the disease in a large majority of cases (70%) treated in their early stages. It is not advised for patients who developed the disease late in life or for carriers of a certain type of mutation. It cannot be performed on patients over 70 years old.. In spite of the transplant, the disease sometimes continues to develop in the nervous system ...
The FDA approved Akcea Therapeutics Tegsedi (inotersen) for the treatment of polyneuropathy caused by hereditary transthyretin (hATTR)-mediated amyloidosis in adults. The self-administered RNA-targeting therapeutic was approved by European agencies three months ago.. Tegsedis approval has come shorty after the FDA clearance of Alnylam Pharmaceuticals Onpattro (patisiran) for the treatment of adults with polyneuropathy due to hATTR, marking the first drug authorized for this indication in the U.S.. While Akcea has currently priced Tegsedi at a similar level to Onpattro (around $345,000 to $450,000 a year), Akcea CEO Paul Soteropoulos commented that the company is considering strategies to increase affordability. She noted that "its self-administration gives the flexibility to treat at a time that works for [patients], which could change the way this progressive and debilitating disease is treated and managed." Onpattro is administered via infusion at a clinic once every three weeks. Despite ...

8. If any two sequences match, those sequences are attracted to each other and their union spawns a new sequence, which is not a perfect replica of its parents; one end of the sequence will always gain or lose one domino. If last domino in the new sequence is connected to the next by a number which is less than half the domino sets maximum number the last domino is lost from the sequence, breaks of and becomes part of the pool, if more than half it gains. If gained it gains it, where a parent has a matching end domino, from one of the parents. The new sequence then becomes part of the pool of sequences and is attracted to any other matching sequences(or loose dominoes if it was spawned of parents with unmatched gain potential). Repeat this process until all attraction couplings are complete ...

Transthyretin (TTR) is a homotetrameric serum protein associated with amyloidoses such as familial amyloid polyneuropathy and senile systemic amyloidosis. The amyloid fibril formation of TTR can be inhibited through stabilization of the TTR tetramer by the binding of small molecules. In this study, we examined the inhibitory potency of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) and its derivatives. Thioflavin T assay showed that CAPE suppressed the amyloid fibril formation of TTR. Comparative analysis of the inhibitory potencies revealed that phenethyl ferulate was the most potent among the CAPE derivatives. The binding of phenethyl ferulate and the selected compounds to TTR were confirmed by the 8-anilino-1-naphthalenesulfonic acid displacement and X-ray crystallography. It was also demonstrated that Bio 30, which is a CAPE-rich commercially available New Zealand propolis, inhibited ...
Amyloid fibrils are associated with a range of highly debilitating neurological disorders including Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease and the spongiform encephalopathies. These structures are formed by the misfolding and self-assembly of peptides and proteins varying widely in sequence and in native conformation. Here we combine experimental measurements derived from sold-state NMR, X-ray fibre diffraction and Atomic Force Microscopy to determine the complex, higher order protofilament structure adopted by an 11-amino acid peptide fragment of the human plasma protein transthyretin, TTR(105-115). This determination of the structure of amyloid fibrils to atomic resolution is crucial to the understanding of non-native protein self-assembly and the molecular basis of protein deposition diseases. We then demonstrate that amyloid fibrils, ordered supramolecular structures that we self-assemble from a wide range of polypeptide molecules, constitute a class of high-performance biomaterials and ...
Wild-type transthyretin amyloid (WTTA), also known as senile systemic amyloidosis (SSA) and abbreviated as ATTR, is a disease that typically affects the heart and tendons of elderly people. It is caused by accumulation of a wild-type (that is to say a normal) protein called transthyretin. This is in contrast to a related condition called transthyretin-related hereditary amyloidosis where a genetically mutated transthyretin protein tends to deposit at a much earlier age than in WTTA, due to abnormal conformation and bioprocessing. It belongs to a group of diseases called amyloidosis, chronic progressive conditions linked to abnormal deposition of normal or abnormal proteins, because these proteins are misshapen and cannot be properly degraded and eliminated by the cell metabolism. Wild-type transthyretin amyloid accumulates mainly in the heart, where it causes stiffness and often thickening of its walls, leading consequently to shortness of breath and intolerance to exercise, called diastolic ...
Purpose: Few scintigraphic tracers are informative on myocardial amyloid infiltration. We aimed to assess: the accuracy of 99mTc-DPD scintigraphy in differential diagnosis between primary (AL) and transthyretin-related (TTR) (both mutant and wild-type) echocardiographically diagnosed amyloidotic cardiomyopathy (AC); the role of 99mTc-DPD in detecting cardiac amyloidosis across a wide spectrum of myocardial involvement in TTR amyloidosis; the prognostic role of 99mTc-DPD in TTR etiology.. Methods: We evaluated: 39 patients with AL-AC; 55 patients with TTR-AC (37 mutant; 19 wild-type); 21 hereditary TTR (ATTR) patients or asymptomatic TTR mutations carriers (6 Val30Met, 15 non-Val30Met) without any echocardiographic abnormalities. Myocardial uptake of 99mTc-DPD (740 MBq iv) was semiquantitatively/visually assessed at 3 h (and 5 min).. Results:. Semiquantitative measures of late (3 h) 99mTc-DPD uptake were ∼2-3 fold higher in TTR-AC (table). A visual score = 2 was accurate in identifying TTR ...
Abstract:. The deposition of amyloid as a distinct, clinically apparent mass is uncommon particularly in the soft tissues. There have been no previously published case reports of abdominal wall involvement; thereby we are describing a case of AA amyloidoma which presented as an abdominal wall abscess without any evidence of systemic disease. The clinical and radiological findings suggested soft tissue abscess likely cysticercosis or a neoplastic process. This case demonstrates the importance of considering the possibility of amyloidoma in the differential diagnosis of soft tissue lesions.. ...
Geese may get their revenge on the gourmet diners who eat foie gras, a delicacy from the the livers of geese that have been force fed.. Foie Gras, made from livers of geese that have been force fed and then killed for their livers made the news in Chicago last year, when a law outlawed the delicacy in City of Chicago restaurants. Fine dining restaurants and Chicago gourmets were outraged at the government with their palates.. The delicacy was banned from City of Chicago restaurants in 2006 by the Chicago City Council. Chicago council members decided it was inhumane to force-feed the birds. Geese are force fed with a tube inserted into their throats twice a day. Partially cooked corn is pumped down the esophagus.. California is the only state to ban the process. In 2004, California passed a measure to end the force feeding of geese by 2012. More than a dozen counties, most of them in Europe, have banned production of the delicacy because of cruel practices. The countries that have banned foie ...

Demographics: Patients can be of almost any age, from childhood to elderly, depending on the underlying cause. Primary amyloidosis shows a male predominance.. Cardinal Findings: In primary amyloidosis, the most commonly involved organs are the kidney, heart, liver, and skin; skeletal muscle and the tongue may also be affected. Peripheral neuropathies are seen, but the central nervous system (CNS) is generally not involved. Secondary amyloidosis most commonly presents with nephrotic syndrome or gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding. Macroglossia is not seen with secondary amyloidosis. The initial finding in hemodialysis associated amyloid is often CTS.. Uncommon Manifestations: In primary amyloidosis, amyloid deposits may be seen in the synovium and occasionally in the synovial fluid.. Diagnostic Tests: Biopsies of affected tissues are usually required. The tissues are stained with Congo red and viewed under polarized light. Kidney and peripheral nerve biopsy specimens can be useful if there are known ...

This is the first reported case of familial amyloid cardiomyopathy associated with TTR Ile122 in a white patient. The Ile122 mutation is present in 4% of African Americans and usually results in isolated cardiac amyloidosis from age 60 years onwards, presenting with cardiac failure and/or arrhythmia. Occasionally, there is associated carpal tunnel syndrome, and peripheral polyneuropathy has been reported.3 Amyloid deposits of wild-type TTR are found in 25% of hearts from people over 80 years old, examined after death.6 These deposits do not always cause clinical symptoms but the possibility of amyloidosis should be considered when treating elderly patients with heart failure, particularly in cases resistant to conventional treatment with diuretics and ACE inhibitors. The diagnosis of cardiac amyloidosis is suggested by an ECG showing small complexes and/or anterior Q waves in association with concentric left ventricular hypertrophy or restrictive physiology and occasionally a speckled myocardium ...

  • Clear, authoritative guidance is offered on diagnosis of the full range of neuropathies with the aid of a wealth of high-quality color photomicrographs and electron micrographs. (springer.com)
  • Neuropathies involving primarily the latter two fiber types are called small-fiber neuropathies. (aafp.org)
  • Clinically, large-fiber neuropathies can be distinguished from small-fiber neuropathies during neurologic testing: large fibers carry sensation for vibration and proprioception, while small fibers carry sensation for pain and temperature. (aafp.org)
  • Abstract Amyloid-β (Aβ) is a peptide deposited in the brain parenchyma in Alzheimer's disease and in cerebral blood vessels, causing cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). (myneuronews.com)
  • Abstract BACE1 is the rate-limiting protease in the production of synaptotoxic β-amyloid (Aβ) species and hence one of the prime drug targets for potential therapy of Alzheimer's disease (AD). (myneuronews.com)
  • When all tests were compared, only IENF density, SGII(PGP9.5), and cutaneous amyloid index were correlated with stage, and IENF density had the highest abnormal rate in carriers. (myneuronews.com)
  • Cutaneous amyloid index was correlated with SGII(PGP9.5) and stage in a multivariable mixed‐effect model. (myneuronews.com)
