The use of atypical antipsychotics in the management of schizophrenia. (1/321)

Long-term drug treatment of schizophrenia with conventional antipsychotics has limitations: an estimated quarter to one third of patients are treatment-resistant; conventional antipsychotics have only a modest impact upon negative symptoms (poverty of thought, social withdrawal and loss of affect); and adverse effects, particularly extrapyramidal symptoms (EPS). Newer, so-called atypical, antipsychotics such as olanzapine, risperidone, sertindole and clozapine (an old drug which was re-introduced in 1990) are claimed to address these limitations. Atypical agents are, at a minimum, at least as effective as conventional drugs such as haloperidol. They also cause substantially fewer extrapyramidal symptoms. However, some other adverse effects are more common than with conventional drugs. For example, clozapine carries a significant risk of serious blood disorders, for which special monitoring is mandatory; it also causes troublesome drowsiness and increased salivation more often than conventional agents. Some atypical agents cause more weight gain or QT prolongation than older agents. The choice of therapy is, therefore, not straightforward. At present, atypical agents represent an advance for patients with severe or intolerable EPS. Most published evidence exists to support the use of clozapine, which has also been shown to be effective in schizophrenia refractory to conventional agents. However, the need for compliance with blood count monitoring and its sedative properties make careful patient selection important. The extent of any additional direct benefit offered by atypical agents on negative symptoms is not yet clear. The lack of a depot formulation for atypical drugs may pose a significant practical problem. To date, only two double-blind studies in which atypical agents were compared directly have been published. Neither provides compelling evidence for the choice of one agent over another. Atypical agents are many times more expensive than conventional drugs. Although drug treatment constitutes only a small proportion of the costs of managing schizophrenia, the additional annual cost of the use of atypical agents in, say, a quarter of the likely U.K. schizophrenic population would be about 56 M pound sterling. There is only limited evidence of cost-effectiveness. Atypical antipsychotics are not currently licensed for other conditions where conventional antipsychotics are commonly used, such as behaviour disturbance or dementia in the elderly. Their dose, and place in treatment in such cases have yet to be determined.  (+info)

Bilateral basal ganglial necrosis after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation in a child with Kostmann syndrome. (2/321)

A 6-year-old girl underwent allogeneic BMT from a matched sibling donor for the treatment of Kostmann syndrome. She suddenly became drowsy on day 30 after BMT, and lost consciousness 2 days later. Cranial CT scan showed symmetrical lesions suggesting bilateral necrosis in the basal ganglia. Clinical and laboratory investigations failed to reveal any evidence of neurometabolic disease.  (+info)

Non-typhoid Salmonella meningitis complicated by a infarction of basal ganglia. (3/321)

A previously healthy 16-month-old Korean girl with symptoms of fever, vomiting, and generalized tonic seizure was diagnosed to have Group D non-typhoid Salmonella meningitis. The patient was treated with ceftriaxone (100 mg/kg/day) and amikin (22.5 mg/kg/day) initially and ciprofloxacin (30 mg/kg/day) was added later because of clinical deterioration and disseminated intravascular coagulation. Brain CT performed on the second day showed a well-demarcated low density lesion in the right lentiform nucleus and both caudate nuclei, without evidence of increased intracranial pressure. MRI performed on the 11th day confirmed CT scan findings as well as right subdural fluid collection, brain atrophy, and ventriculomegaly. She underwent subdural drainage and later ventriculo-peritoneal shunt operation. Despite receiving intensive treatment, she still has severe neurologic sequelae. Our case shows that infarctions of basal ganglia and thalami are not specific for tuberculous meningitis and that meningitis complicated by infarction is indicative of grave prognosis.  (+info)

Identification of a locus on chromosome 14q for idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (Fahr disease). (4/321)

Idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (IBGC) is a neurodegenerative syndrome that is associated with a variety of movement disorders and neurobehavioral and cognitive manifestations. Despite numerous clinical, pathological, and biochemical investigations, its etiology remains unknown. We have identified a multigenerational family with dominantly inherited IBGC and, in 24 members of this family, performed a whole-genome scan using polymorphic microsatellite markers to identify the first chromosomal locus for this disorder (IBGC1). A maximum two-point LOD score of 3.37 was obtained at marker D14S1014, and a maximum multipoint LOD score of 4.95 was obtained between D14S75 and D14S306. The minimal haplotype shared by affected patients extended over a 17.1-cM region bounded by D14S70 and D14S66, which is potentially further narrowed to a 13.3-cM region by a recombination observed in a patient with probable affected status. The age at onset appeared to be decreasing by an average of >20 years with each transmission, which is consistent with genetic anticipation.  (+info)

Dyspraxia in a patient with corticobasal degeneration: the role of visual and tactile inputs to action. (5/321)

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the roles of visual and tactile information in a dyspraxic patient with corticobasal degeneration (CBD) who showed dramatic facilitation in miming the use of a tool or object when he was given a tool to manipulate; and to study the nature of the praxic and neuropsychological deficits in CBD. METHODS: The subject had clinically diagnosed CBD, and exhibited alien limb behaviour and striking ideomotor dyspraxia. General neuropsychological evaluation focused on constructional and visuospatial abilities, calculation, verbal fluency, episodic and semantic memory, plus spelling and writing because impairments in this domain were presenting complaints. Four experiments assessed the roles of visual and tactile information in the facilitation of motor performance by tools. Experiment 1 evaluated the patient's performance of six limb transitive actions under six conditions: (1) after he described the relevant tool from memory, (2) after he was shown a line drawing of the tool, (3) after he was shown a real exemplar of the tool, (4) after he watched the experimenter perform the action, (5) while he was holding the tool, and (6) immediately after he had performed the action with the tool but with the tool removed from his grasp. Experiment 2 evaluated the use of the same six tools when the patient had tactile but no visual information (while he was blindfolded). Experiments 3 and 4 assessed performance of actions appropriate to the same six tools when the patient had either neutral or inappropriate tactile feedback-that is, while he was holding a non-tool object or a different tool. RESULTS: Miming of tool use was not facilitated by visual input; moreover, lack of visual information in the blindfolded condition did not reduce performance. The principal positive finding was a dramatic facilitation of the patient's ability to demonstrate object use when he was holding either the appropriate tool or a neutral object. Tools inappropriate to the requested action produced involuntary performance of the stimulus relevant action. CONCLUSIONS: Tactile stimulation was paramount in the facilitation of motor performance in tool use by this patient with CBD. This outcome suggests that tactile information should be included in models which hypothesise modality specific inputs to the action production system. Significant impairments in spelling and letter production that have not previously been reported in CBD have also been documented.  (+info)

Progressive frontal gait disturbance with atypical Alzheimer's disease and corticobasal degeneration. (6/321)

OBJECTIVES: The clinical neuropsychological, neuroradiological, and neuropathological description of two patients presenting with a frontal gait disturbance. METHODS: Clinical case note review, neuropsychological assessment, functional imaging with (15)O(2) and (18)F-fluorodopa PET, and neuropathology. RESULTS: Both patients presented with frontal gait impairment and only later developed more widespread cognitive impairment. In both cases (15)O(2) PET disclosed focal hypometabolism in the medial frontal lobes and in one patient (18)F-fluorodopa uptake into the caudate and putamen was normal. The neuropathological examination in one patient showed Alzheimer's histopathology together with large swollen eosinophilic neurons characteristic of corticobasal degeneration, which were particularly prominent in the medial frontal lobes. CONCLUSION: Focal degeneration of the medial frontal lobes may present as an isolated gait disturbance and should be considered in the differential diagnosis of patients who present without an obvious structural abnormality on neuroimaging.  (+info)

Extrapyramidal type rigidity in rheumatoid arthritis. (7/321)

OBJECTIVES: We had noted cogwheel rigidity in a number of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Based on this finding, we aimed to investigate formally the presence of rigidity and cogwheeling in RA patients. Our secondary aim was to survey the co-existence of RA and Parkinson's disease (PD). METHODS: A total of 87 consecutive patients with a diagnosis of RA, 78 patients with PD and 67 otherwise healthy patients attending a dedicated headache clinic participated in the study. RESULTS: Rigidity was observed in 24% of RA, 60% of PD and 2% of headache patients. The frequency among the RA patients was significantly higher compared to that of patients with headache (chi 2 = 15.2; P = 0.00009). The frequency of PD among the RA patients was 2/87 (2.3%), while the frequency of RA among the PD patients was 6/78 (7.7%). CONCLUSION: Rigidity can be observed in approximately a quarter of patients with RA.  (+info)

Enhanced association of mutant triosephosphate isomerase to red cell membranes and to brain microtubules. (8/321)

In a Hungarian family with triosephosphate isomerase (TPI; D-glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate keto-isomerase, EC 5.3.1.1) deficiency, two germ-line identical, but phenotypically differing compound heterozygote brothers (one of them with neurological disorder) have been identified with the same very low (<5%) TPI activity and 20- or 40-fold higher erythrocyte dihydroxyacetone phosphate levels as compared with normal controls. Our present studies with purified TPI and hemolysates revealed the binding of TPI, and the binding of human wild-type and mutant TPIs in hemolysate, to the red cell membrane, and the interference of binding with other hemolysate proteins. The binding of the mutant TPI is enhanced as compared with the wild-type enzyme. The increased binding is influenced by both the altered structure of the mutant and the changes in the red cell membrane. Compared with binding of glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, the isomerase binding is much less sensitive to ionic strength or blocking of the N-terminal tail of the band-3 transmembrane protein. The binding of TPIs to the membrane decreases the isomerase activity, resulting in extremely high dihydroxyacetone phosphate levels in deficient cells. In cell-free brain extract, tubulin copolymerizes with TPI and with other cytosolic proteins forming highly decorated microtubules as shown by immunoblot analysis with anti-TPI antibody and by electron microscopic images. The efficacy order of TPI binding to microtubules is propositus > brother without neurological disorder > normal control. This distinct microcompartmentation of mutant proteins may be relevant in the development of the neurodegenerative process in TPI deficiency and in other, more common neurological diseases.  (+info)

This gene encodes a ubiquitously expressed transmembrane thiamine transporter that lacks folate transport activity. Mutations in this gene cause biotin-responsive basal ganglia disease (BBGD); a recessive disorder manifested in childhood that progresses to chronic encephalopathy, dystonia, quadriparesis, and death if untreated. Patients with BBGD have bilateral necrosis in the head of the caudate nucleus and in the putamen. Administration of high doses of biotin in the early progression of the disorder eliminates pathological symptoms while delayed treatment results in residual paraparesis, mild cognitive disability, or dystonia. Administration of thiamine is ineffective in the treatment of this disorder. Experiments have failed to show that this protein can transport biotin. Mutations in this gene also cause a Wernickes-like encephalopathy.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010 ...
Involvement of the basal ganglia in AIDS encephalopathy is well documented in both adults and children. The pathology remains obscure. A type of inflammation with increased vascularity and disruption of the blood-brain barrier has been postulated. Calcification of the basal ganglia in encephalopathic HIV / AIDS children has been relatively well documented. Only two adult HIV cases with basal ganglion calcification (BGC) have been reported in the literature. At our institution over the past few years, we have noted an increasing number of adult AIDS patients with neurological complications, demonstrating BGC on CT examination. A retrospective review was done. Ninety-six adult cases were identified with BGC. Of these, 38 patients were HIV positive. Review of the 38 HIV-positive cases revealed that all of the patients presented clinically with encephalopathic symptoms, and all showed BGC associated with varying degrees of atrophy on CT scan. Reports of paediatric HIV cases with BGC and encephalopathy have

This PhD thesis is a study of cortical electrophysiology in two basal ganglia disorders: Parkinsons disease (PD) and dystonia. Two diseases were chosen as being representative of hypokinetic and hyperkinetic movement disorders, respectively. In addition, current treatments seem to be imperfect to control many aspects of both diseases, hence the interest in exploring potential new therapeutic targets. PD and dystonia are basal ganglia diseases, but there is growing body of evidence of impaired cortical function and particularly of abnormal sensorimotor cortical plasticity in both disorders. We however still lack knowledge about functional significance of these cortical changes. Are they maladaptive or compensatory or of little functional significance? Techniques of Transcranial Magnetic (TMS) were used to determine 1) if clinical asymmetry of early PD is reflected in hemispheric asymmetry of sensorimotor cortical plasticity and intracortical inhibition, and 2) how these electrophysiological ...

This videotape further engages the viewer by covering some of the resulting signs and symptoms of deficits. Examination of cranial nerves, specifically extraocular eye movements, includes the statement that diplopia is maximal in the area of the neurological deficit. Other examples include the fact that the uvula will deviate away from the side of the lesion and that, in the assessment of movement, rigidity is a sign of basal ganglia disease. Terminology is not consistently provided. For example, in the discussion of a position sense of a digit, the term proprioception is ...

Idiopathic basal ganglia calcification, also known as Fahr disease, is a rare, genetically dominant, inherited neurological disorder characterized by abnormal deposits of calcium in areas of the brain that control movement. Through the use of CT scans, calcifications are seen primarily in the basal ganglia and in other areas such as the cerebral cortex. Symptoms of this disease include deterioration of motor functions and speech, seizures, and other involuntary movement. Other symptoms are headaches, dementia, and vision impairment. Characteristics of Parkinsons Disease are also similar to Fahrs Syndrome. The disease usually manifests itself in the third to fifth decade of life but may appear in childhood or later in life. It usually presents with clumsiness, fatigability, unsteady gait, slow or slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, involuntary movements or muscle cramping. Seizures of various types are common. Neuropsychiatric symptoms, which may be the first or the most prominent ...

Calcifications in the basal ganglia are a common incidental finding and are sometimes inherited as an autosomal dominant trait (idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (IBGC)). Recently, mutations in the PDGFRB gene coding for the platelet-derived growth factor receptor β (PDGF-Rβ) were linked to IBGC. Here we identify six families of different ancestry with nonsense and missense mutations in the gene encoding PDGF-B, the main ligand for PDGF-Rβ. We also show that mice carrying hypomorphic Pdgfb alleles develop brain calcifications that show age-related expansion. The occurrence of these calcium depositions depends on the loss of endothelial PDGF-B and correlates with the degree of pericyte and blood-brain barrier deficiency. Thus, our data present a clear link between Pdgfb mutations and brain calcifications in mice, as well as between PDGFB mutations and IBGC in humans. ...

The predominant deficit in this case of FD was a severe impairment of executive functions, mainly including planning, problem solving, and set shifting capacities, but also flexibility and divergent thinking. Furthermore, episodic memory and attentional functions were also grossly compromised. In contrast, basic and higher motor functions, language and basic perceptual abilities remained unimpaired. In addition, the patient experienced a marked personality change with apathy, intermittent disinhibition, irritability, aggression, compulsive features, and anxiety. The functional imaging correlate of the basal ganglia calcification was a regional hypometabolism of the basal ganglia and frontal brain as shown by FDG-PET, whereas brain regions located more posteriorly appeared to have normal metabolism. Hypometabolism in both frontal lobes was extensive and included dorsolateral, ventromedial, and orbitofrontal areas.. The origin of this patients disorder is not clear. Combinations of FD with other ...
Prism adaptation is a form of visuomotor learning in which the visual and motor systems need to be adjusted because a visual perturbation is produced by horizontally displacing prisms. Despite being known for over two centuries, the neuronal substrates of this phenomenon are not yet completely understood. In this article the possible role of the basal ganglia in this kind of learning was analysed through a study of Huntingtons and Parkinsons disease patients. A throwing technique requiring the use of open loop feedback was used. The variables analysed were visuomotor performance, adaptation rate and magnitude, and the after-effect. The results clearly showed that both Huntingtons and Parkinsons disease groups learned at the same rate as control subjects. In addition, despite having a disturbed visuomotor performance, both experimental groups showed the same adaptation magnitude as the control group. Finally, the after-effect, which is measured after removing the prisms, is reduced in both ...
We studied the discharge pattern of motor units (MUs) from the first dorsal interosseous muscle during slight stationary isometric contraction. In six controls, seven patients with parkinsonism, and five patients with choreic disorders, we analyzed 78 MUs. About one-half of the MUs in both patient groups fired irregularly as shown by interval histograms, joint interval histograms, and corresponding statistical calculations. Cross-correlation techniques revealed a characteristic type of MU synchronization in parkinsonism. Analysis of the MU discharge pattern can be useful in clinical assessment of these disorders.. ...

A 50 year old patient is described who presented with parkinsonism, frontal dementia, peripheral neuropathy, neurogenic bladder, and upper motor neuron signs. No improvement in objective measurements of extrapyramidal dysfunction were seen with an incremental apomorphine test or more prolonged oral dopamine challenge. Neurophysiology disclosed changes compatible with a diffuse axonal neuropathy and pathological examination of a length of sural nerve taken at biopsy showed multiple polyglucosan bodies characteristic of adult polyglucosan body disease (APGBD). This case underlines the diverse clinical presentation of this rare neurological disease and the importance of recognising the unusual association of clinical features in making the diagnosis. APGBD should be included in the differential diagnosis of parkinsonism unresponsive to dopaminergic therapy.. ...

Bradykinesia refers to slowness of movement and is the most characteristic clinical feature of PD, although it may also be seen in other disorders, including depression. Bradykinesia is a hallmark of basal ganglia disorders, and it encompasses difficulties with planning, initiating and executing movement and with performing sequential and simultaneous tasks.22 The initial manifestation is often slowness in performing activities of daily living and slow movement and reaction times.23 24 This may include difficulties with tasks requiring fine motor control (eg, buttoning, using utensils). Other manifestations of bradykinesia include loss of spontaneous movements and gesturing, drooling because of impaired swallowing,25 monotonic and hypophonic dysarthria, loss of facial expression (hypomimia) and decreased blinking, and reduced arm swing while walking. Given that bradykinesia is one of the most easily recognisable symptoms of PD, it may become apparent before any formal neurological examination. ...

Infantile myofibromatosis (IM), previously known as congenital generalized fibromatosis, is characterized by the development of tumors in various tissues and organs. IM affects mostly infants and young children. Although tumors are usually detected at birth or during the first two years of life, uterine and adult onsets have been also reported (Chung and Enzinger 1981). Two main types of IM, solitary and multicentric, are distinguished. Each type is further divided in two groups based on the presence or absence of visceral involvement (Wiswell et al. 1988). The solitary type is characterized by the development of a single nodule mainly in the bones, striated muscle, skin, or subcutaneous tissues. In rare cases, solitary tumors have been reported in the viscera. The multicentric type is characterized by the development of multiple nodules in various organs. Visceral involvement is common in this type. The lungs, heart, gastrointestinal tract, pancreas, liver, and bones are most commonly affected. ...

Patients with certain neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinsons disease and dementia show excessive accumulation of iron in the brain. It has been postulated that these iron deposits damage neurons by inducing oxidative stress, but whether they are a cause or consequence of the disease process is unclear.. Curtis et al. report that the causative mutation in a family with adult-onset basal ganglia disease lies in a gene encoding a subunit of ferritin, a protein that functions in both storage and detoxification of iron. In a study of patients with Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome, an early-onset neurodegenerative disorder, Zhou et al. find that the culprit gene encodes pantothenate kinase (PANK), an essential regulatory enzyme in coenzyme A biosynthesis. The disease-associated mutations in PANK might alter iron levels in the brain indirectly through effects on cysteine levels. Further studies of these new disease genes will be needed to understand the role iron metabolism plays in ...

Familial idiopathic basal ganglia calcification (IBGC) is a genetic condition with a wide spectrum of neuropsychiatric symptoms, including parkinsonism and dementia. Here, we identified mutations in SLC20A2, encoding the type III sodium-dependent phosphate transporter 2 (PiT2), in IBGC-affected families of varied ancestry, and we observed significantly impaired phosphate transport activity for all assayed PiT2 mutants in Xenopus laevis oocytes. Our results implicate altered phosphate homeostasis in the etiology of IBGC ...

Fahrs disease or syndrome is a rare inherited or sporadic neurological disorder with a prevalence of less than 1/1,000,000 [1]. Recently, a number of genes have been identified, known to be associated with familial primary brain calcification (PFBC), causing Fahrs disease or syndrome [1]. These genes are SCL20A2, PDGFB, PDGFRB and XPR1, and a significant correlation was found between the presence of headache in PDGFB mutations, and parkinsonism with SLC20A2 [2].. We present the case of a 49-year-old woman with Greenlandic Inuit origin and an otherwise unremarkable medical history. She initially presented with symptoms of headache and diplopia. She was referred to a CT scan of the cerebrum, which showed bilateral calcifications of the thalamus and corpus striatum (Figures 1 and 2) compatible with Fahrs syndrome [1]. Shortly after, the patient developed tremor of the right hand, fatigability especially of her right side, dizziness, and minor cognitive decline.. ...

Autosomal dominant hypocalcaemia type 1 (ADH1) is a rare familial disorder characterised by low serum calcium and low or inappropriately normal serum PTH. It is caused by activating CASR mutations, which produces a left-shift in the set point for extracellular calcium. We describe an Australian family with a novel heterozygous missense mutation in CASR causing ADH1. Mild neuromuscular symptoms (paraesthesia, carpopedal spasm) were present in most affected individuals and required treatment with calcium and calcitriol. Basal ganglia calcification was present in three out of four affected family members. This case highlights the importance of correctly identifying genetic causes of hypocalcaemia to allow for proper management and screening of family members. ...

RESULTS: Abnormal MR findings were more common in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus with antiphospholipid syndrome (73% versus 53%). Large territorial (P = .01), lacunar (P = .01), localized cortical (P , .01), borderzone infarcts (P , .01), basal ganglia lesions (P = .03), stenotic arterial lesions (P = .04), and the rate of positive findings on MR imaging (P = .01) were significantly associated with antiphospholipid syndrome. Irrespective of age, significantly more patients with antiphospholipid syndrome manifested lacunar infarcts in the deep white matter (P , .01), localized cortical infarcts in the territory of the MCA (P , .01), bilateral borderzone infarcts (P , .01), and anterior basal ganglia lesions (P = .01). ...
Fahrs Syndrome is a rare, genetically dominant, inherited neurological disorder characterized by abnormal deposits of calcium in areas of the brain that control movement, including the basal ganglia and the cerebral cortex. Symptoms of the disorder may include deterioration of motor function, dementia, seizures, headache, dysarthria (poorly articulated speech),spasticity (stiffness of the limbs) and spastic paralysis, eye impairments, and athetosis (involuntary, writhing movements). Fahrs Syndrome can also include symptoms characteristic of Parkinsons disease such as tremors, muscle rigidity, a mask-like facial appearance, shuffling gait, and a pill-rolling motion of the fingers. These symptoms generally occur later in the development of the disease. More common symptoms include dystonia (disordered muscle tone) and chorea (involuntary, rapid, jerky movements). Age of onset is typically in the 40s or 50s, although it can occur at any time in childhood or adolescence.. ...
2Ankara University, School of Medicine, Department of Radiology, Ankara, Turkey DOI : 10.5137/1019-5149.JTN.8574-13.0 Fahrs Syndrome is characterized by the presence of intracerebral, bilateral and symmetrical calcifications located in bilateral basal ganglia, thalamus, and cerebellum. The etiology is not exactly known. The authors reported a very rare case who had Fahrs Syndrome and intracerebral aneurysms simultaneously. The patient was female and presented with headache. Her examinations revealed aneurysms on the middle cerebral artery, internal carotid artery and ophthalmic artery. That is the first case reported in the literature having multiple intracranial aneurysms and Fahrs Syndrome together. Keywords : Fahrs syndrome, Aneurysm, Calcification ...
Dose-Related Adverse Reactions Schizophrenia Dose response relationships for the incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events were evaluated from four trials in adult patients with schizophrenia comparing various fixed doses (2, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 30 mg/day) of oral aripiprazole to placebo. This analysis, stratified by study, indicated that the only adverse reaction to have a possible dose response relationship, and then most prominent only with 30 mg, was somnolence [including sedation]; (incidences were placebo, 7.1%; 10 mg, 8.5%; 15 mg, 8.7%; 20 mg, 7.5%; 30 mg, 12.6%). In the study of pediatric patients (13 to 17 years of age) with schizophrenia, three common adverse reactions appeared to have a possible dose response relationship: extrapyramidal disorder (incidences were placebo, 5.0%; 10 mg, 13.0%; 30 mg, 21.6%); somnolence (incidences were placebo, 6.0%; 10 mg, 11.0%; 30 mg, 21.6%); and tremor (incidences were placebo, 2.0%; 10 mg, 2.0%; 30 mg, 11.8%).

The basal ganglia consists of masses of subcortical grey matter deep within the cerebral hemispheres. Along with the cerebellum, the basal ganglia controls movement and posture, adjusting the body to do certain things, as well as inhibits unwanted movement. Lesions in the basal ganglia cause disturbances in motor activity. Information is sent from the motor cortex to the basal ganglia and is relayed back via the thalamus. Recent studies suggest that the basal ganglia contains five segregated circuits for different functions of behavior. Each involves separate regions within the basal ganglia and the thalamus.
Neurology - Students will learn how to correctly interpret neurological signs and symptoms as either anatomically and functionally normal or pathological. They will also learn notions that will enable them to define syndromes related to pathological modifications of specific structures of the central, peripheral and autonomic nervous systems (e.g., pyramidal syndrome, extrapyramidal syndrome, etc.). Finally, the course will enable students to get to know the major groups of neurological disorders (e.g., cerebrovascular diseases, infectious CNS diseases, etc.).. ...

Background: Pipamperone is a frequently prescribed antipsychotic in children and adolescents in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. However, pediatric pharmacokinetics and the relationship with side effects and efficacy are unknown. Currently, divergent pediatric dosing recommendations exist. Objectives: The objective of this study was to describe the population pharmacokinetics of pipamperone in children and adolescents; to correlate measured and predicted pipamperone trough concentrations and predicted 24-h area under the curves with effectiveness, extrapyramidal symptoms, and sedation; and to propose dose recommendations based on simulations. Methods: Pipamperone concentrations were collected from Dutch pediatric patients in a prospective naturalistic trial (n = 8), and German pediatric patients in a therapeutic drug monitoring service (n = 22). A total of 70 pipamperone concentrations were used to develop a population pharmacokinetic model with non-linear mixed-effects modeling ...

Take Symmetrel exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The recommended dose for treating or preventing the flu in adults is 100 mg twice daily or 200 mg once daily. Taking it twice a day may decrease the chance of side effects. A lower dose (100 mg once daily) is recommended for people age 65 years or older. For children age 9 and older, the recommended dose is 100 mg twice daily. For flu treatment, Symmetrel should be started as soon as possible within 24 to 48 hours of the start of flu symptoms, and it should be continued for 24 to 48 hours after the symptoms go away. For treating Parkinsons disease the recommended dose is 100 mg twice a day, if no other Parkinsons medications are used. Your doctor may increase your dose up to a maximum of 400 mg total per day. The recommended dose for treating extrapyramidal symptoms caused by other medications is 100 mg twice daily. Your doctor may increase your dose up to a total of 300 mg per day. If you have liver or kidney disease, your doctor may ...
