Embryonic and postnatal injections of bromodeoxyuridine produce age-dependent morphological and behavioral abnormalities. (1/241)

The mitotic marker 5-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) was injected twice daily (60 mg/kg) into pregnant hooded rats on one of embryonic days (E) 11, 12, 13, 15, 17, or 21, or into rat pups on postnatal day (P) 10. The principal findings were the following: (1) BrdU exposure on E11 produces profound effects on body morphology, and animals must be fed a special diet because of chronic tooth abnormalities; (2) BrdU exposure at E17 or earlier produces a change in coat spotting pattern, the precise pattern varying with age; (3) BrdU exposure on E15 or earlier produces a reduction in both brain and body weight; (4) BrdU exposure on E17 or earlier reduces cortical thickness; (5) BrdU exposure on E11-E13 and at P10 reduces cerebellar size relative to cerebral size; (6) spatial learning is significantly affected after injections of BrdU at E11-E17, but the largest effect is on E17; (7) the deficit in spatial learning may be related in part to a reduction in visual acuity; and (8) skilled forelimb ability is most disrupted after BrdU exposure at E15 but is also impaired after injections on E13 or earlier. BrdU thus has teratological effects on body, brain, and behavior that vary with the developmental age of the fetus or infant.  (+info)

Treatment-resistant schizophrenia and staff rejection. (2/241)

This study examined the relationship between characteristics of patients suffering from treatment-refractory schizophrenia and staff rejection and criticism. Subjects were 30 inpatients with treatment-resistant schizophrenia and the 29 staff members treating them. Measures included assessment of the patients' symptoms and aggression risk profile using the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS) and assessment of staff attitudes toward these patients using the Patient Rejection Scale (PRS). Nursing staff completed the Nurses' Observation Scale for Inpatient Evaluation (NOSIE). PRS ratings did not correlate with patients' demographic and treatment characteristics. Significant correlations existed, however, between increased staff rejection and higher scores for PANSS cognitive factor and NOSIE manifest psychosis factor. Negative symptoms, although preponderant in the patient sample, were not significant predictors of staff rejection on the PRS. Older nursing staff tended to view patients as more irritable and manifestly psychotic. These findings suggest that disorganized behavior and impaired cognition dysfunction areas are more likely to be associated with high levels of rejection among staff working with treatment-resistant schizophrenia patients. Incorporation of the relatively new concepts of cognitive dysfunction and treatment resistance in staff training programs and multidisciplinary team reviews may greatly benefit schizophrenia patients and the staff treating them.  (+info)

Violence in inpatients with schizophrenia: a prospective study. (3/241)

Accurate evaluations of the dangers posed by psychiatric inpatients are necessary, although a number of studies have questioned the accuracy of violence prediction. In this prospective study, we evaluated several variables in the prediction of violence in 63 inpatients with a DSM-IV diagnosis of schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder. Nurses rated violent incidents with the Overt Aggression Scale. During hospitalization, sociodemographic variables, clinical history, neurological soft signs, community alcohol or drug abuse, and electroencephalographic abnormalities did not differ between violent and nonviolent groups. Violent patients had significantly more positive symptoms as measured by the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale (PANSS), higher scores on the PANSS general psychopathology scale, and less insight in the different constructs assessed. A logistic regression was performed to discriminate between violent and nonviolent patients. Three variables entered the model: insight into symptoms, PANSS general psychopathology score, and violence in the previous week. The actuarial model correctly classified 84.13 percent of the sample; this result is significantly better than chance for the base rate of violence in this study. At hospital admission, clinical rather than sociodemographic variables were more predictive of violence. This finding has practical importance because clinical symptoms are amenable to therapeutic approaches. This study is the first to demonstrate that insight into psychotic symptoms is a predictor of violence in inpatients with schizophrenia.  (+info)

Course of violence in patients with schizophrenia: relationship to clinical symptoms. (4/241)

To understand the heterogeneity of violent behaviors in patients with schizophrenia, one must consider underlying clinical symptoms of the illness and their change over time. The purpose of this study was to examine persistence and resolution of violence in relation to psychotic symptoms, ward behaviors, and neurological impairment. Psychiatric symptoms and ward behaviors were assessed in violent inpatients with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder and in nonviolent controls on entry into the study. Patients were followed for 4 weeks; those who showed resolution of assaults over this time were classified as transiently violent, and those who remained assaultive were categorized as persistently violent. At the end of the 4 weeks, psychiatric symptoms, ward behaviors, and neurological impairment were assessed. Overall, the two violent groups presented with more severe psychiatric symptoms and were judged to be more irritable than the nonviolent control subjects, but the transiently violent patients showed improvement in symptoms over time. At the end of 4 weeks, the persistently violent patients had evidence of more severe neurological impairment, hostility, suspiciousness, and irritability than the other two groups. Canonical discriminant analyses identified two significant dimensions differentiated the groups. The first, characterized by positive psychotic symptoms, differentiated the violent patients from the control subjects; the second, characterized by neurological impairment and high endpoint score for negative symptoms, differentiated the transiently from the persistently violent patients. Identification of certain symptoms associated with different forms of violence has important implications for the prediction and differential treatment of violent behavior in patients with schizophrenia.  (+info)

Suicide risk in schizophrenia: an analysis of 17 consecutive suicides. (5/241)

The aim of this study was to investigate interactional factors related to the recognition of suicide risk in patients with schizophrenia. The study focused on 17 schizophrenia patients who had committed suicide during the National Suicide Prevention Project in Finland between April 1, 1987, and March 31, 1988, in the province of Kuopio. Consensus case reports were assembled by using the psychological autopsy method. Study methods included structured and in-depth interviews of next of kin and interviews of health care or social services workers who had treated the suicide victims. Male and female patients with schizophrenia committed suicide in equal proportions. Most had suffered from schizophrenia for more than 15 years; all but one had been receiving psychiatric treatment at the time of suicide. Retrospective assessment indicated that 59 percent of the patients were clinically depressed at the time of suicide. In 76 percent of the cases, the mental health professionals involved in treatment had not believed that there was a risk of suicide during their last contact with the patient. In 29 percent of the cases, the patient's paranoid ideas concerning treatment personnel had increased. Patients' withdrawal from human relationships because of depression was related to loss of the treatment professionals' concern for the patients. The findings in this descriptive study suggest that withdrawal by a patient with schizophrenia and an increase in the patient's paranoid behavior should be regarded as signals of risk of suicide.  (+info)

Altered parallel auditory processing in schizophrenia patients. (6/241)

Patients with schizophrenia have impaired auditory processing that has been demonstrated by diminished P50 response to paired auditory stimuli in event-related potential (ERP) studies. Cerebral processing can also be studied with magnetoencephalography (MEG). With a whole-head MEG, which enables one to simultaneously measure brain activity in both hemispheres, we investigated whether early parallel auditory processing is impaired in schizophrenia. Sequences of tones were monaurally presented to schizophrenia patients and healthy controls in a passive condition, and the event-related magnetic fields were recorded simultaneously over both auditory cortices. The interhemispheric latency difference of the P50m, but not that of the N100m, was significantly shorter in the patient group in the right-ear but not in the left-ear stimulus condition. Further, the ipsilateral P50m was significantly earlier in schizophrenia patients in the right-ear condition. This result suggests that schizophrenia affects the consecutive preconscious auditory processing in a different manner.  (+info)

Genetic variants of dopamine receptor D4 and psychopathology. (7/241)

There is much evidence to indicate that the dopamine receptor D4 (DRD4) gene is involved in psychiatric disorders. We investigated the correlation between DRD4 gene polymorphism and the psychopathology of major psychoses, independently of diagnoses. Some 461 inpatients affected by major psychoses were assessed by the Operational Criteria checklist for psychotic illness and typed for DRD4 variants. The four symptomatologic factors-mania, depression, delusion, and disorganization-were used as phenotype definitions. DRD4 Exon 3 long allele variants were associated with high delusional scores, with the most significant difference between alleles 2 and 7 (p = 0.004). DRD4 variants may, therefore, constitute a liability factor for development of delusional symptomatology in patients with major psychoses.  (+info)

X linked severe mental retardation, craniofacial dysmorphology, epilepsy, ophthalmoplegia, and cerebellar atrophy in a large South African kindred is localised to Xq24-q27. (8/241)

To date over 150 X linked mental retardation (XLMR) conditions have been documented. We describe a five generation South African family with XLMR, comprising 16 affected males and 10 carrier females. The clinical features common to the 16 males included profound mental retardation (100%), mutism despite apparently normal hearing (100%), grand mal epilepsy (87.5%), and limited life expectancy (68.8%). Of the four affected males examined, all had mild craniofacial dysmorphology and three were noted to have bilateral ophthalmoplegia and truncal ataxia. Three of 10 obligate female carriers had mild mental retardation. Cerebellar and brain stem atrophy was shown by cranial imaging and postmortem examination. Linkage analysis shows the gene to be located between markers DXS424 (Xq24) and DXS548 (Xq27.3), with a maximum two point lod score of 3.10.  (+info)

Behavioral symptoms related to cognitive impairment Carol Dillon,1 Cecilia M Serrano,1 Diego Castro,1 Patricio Perez Leguizamón,1 Silvina L Heisecke,1,2 Fernando E Taragano1 1CEMIC (Centro de Educación Médica e Investigaciones Clínicas) University Institute, 2CONICET (Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Cientificas y Técnicas), Buenos Aires, Argentina Abstract: Neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) are core features of Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. On one hand, behavioral symptoms in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) can indicate an increased risk of progressing to dementia. On the other hand, mild behavioral impairment (MBI) in patients who usually have normal cognition indicates an increased risk of developing dementia. Whatever the cause, all dementias carry a high rate of NPI. These symptoms can be observed at any stage of the disease, may fluctuate over its course, are a leading cause of stress and overload for caregivers, and increase

Several reports have shown cognitive dysfunction in iRBD, mainly in the domains of visuospatial abilities, attention, and executive function [24,25], and cognitive dysfunction tends to progress over time [26]. There was no statistically significant difference in neuropsychological test results between iRBD with disruptive behavioral symptoms and iRBD without disruptive behavioral symptoms found in the present study. Although REM sleep regulation is related to nuclei in the brainstem, the neurodegenerative process in iRBD involves other areas including nigrostriatal system and cortical structures [27]. However, disruptive behavior is thought to be related to the dorsal midbrain and pons rather than cortical structures, thus it is plausible that no difference in cognitive performance according to disruptive behavioral symptoms was found in the current study. One study also reported that increased tonic chin EMG activity during REM sleep at the initial diagnosis of iRBD predicted a higher ...

When girls co-ruminate, theyre spending such a high percentage of their time dwelling on problems and concerns that it probably makes them feel sad and more hopeless about the problems because those problems are in the forefront of their minds. Those are symptoms of depression. In terms of anxiety, co-ruminating likely makes them feel more worried about the problems, including about their consequences. Co-rumination also may lead to depression and anxiety because it takes so much time - time that could be used to engage in other, more positive activities that could help distract youth from their problems. This is especially true for problems that girls cant control, such as whether a particular boy likes them, or whether they get invited to a party that all of the popular kids are attending ...
New research from the University of Wisconsin Madison shows that the age at which a child with autism is diagnosed is related to the particular suite of behavioral symptoms he or she exhibits.
According to Dr. Currier, "Cancer patients are three times more likely to develop depression within five years of their cancer diagnosis when compared to the general population. And theres now compelling evidence that the link is systemic inflammation.". Currier says the presence of a malignant tumor will increase systemic inflammation in the body, and inflammatory signaling molecules, called cytokines, can cross into the brain and produce symptoms that mimic depression. "(Paula) was actually relieved to discover that the issue that was producing these behavioral symptoms was not a clinical depression but rather a manifestation of the systemic inflammation that was being produced by the cancer," Dr. Currier said.. Dr. Currier believes its important for cancer patients to receive mental health care from someone familiar with cancer treatments and medications.. "Cancer treatment is complicated," she says.

Abstract. Addiction to drugs and alcohol is a dynamic and multi-faceted disease process in humans, with devastating health and financial consequences for the individual and society-at-large. In humans, drug and alcohol use disorders (i.e., abuse and dependence) are defined by clusters of behavioral symptoms that can be modeled to various degrees in animals. Hallmark behavioral symptoms associated with drug and alcohol dependence are compulsive drug use, loss of control during episodes of drug use, the emergence of a negative emotional state in the absence of the drug, and chronic relapse vulnerability during drug abstinence. The transition to drug dependence is defined by neuroadaptations in brain circuits that, in the absence of drugs, mediate a variety of critical behavioral and physiological processes including natural reward, positive and negative emotional states, nociception, and feeding. Chronic drug exposure during the transition to dependence spurs (1) within-systems changes in neural ...

November 29, 2017. People with dementia often have behavioral symptoms. These include problems with memory, language, and decision-making abilities. People with dementia can also experience changes in mood, such as increased irritability, depression, and anxiety. They often need assistance with their daily activities, such as feeding, dressing, using the toilet, and bathing themselves. These symptoms are often troubling for people with dementia, as well as for their caregivers.. These dementia symptoms can reduce quality of life for people as they age. This can make them dependent on other people, which can lead to caregivers feeling distressed. It may also lead to people with dementia being hospitalized or placed in a nursing home, even if it is not what they would prefer for their care.. There are no effective drug treatments for dementia or its symptoms. Therefore, researchers have been exploring treatment options to improve symptoms that dont involve using medication. A team of researchers ...

It does not, however, disclose the symptoms of long-term use. Physical symptoms include decayed teeth, weight loss, skin lesions, stroke, and heart attack. By presenting a gloomy picture of a METH user in front of the camera, it gives the viewer an image of how METH can alter ones appearance, change their lifestyle, and ultimately, their demeanor. As evident by the METH users recount of situations presented in the media item, behavioral symptoms include aggressiveness, violence, and isolation. The story of this METH abuse victim, personalizes the promo clip, engages the viewer on an emotional level as a means for better communicating the information and the message that methamphetamine is a dangerous drug with severe effects and lifestyle consequences. In the conclusion of the clip, the narrator states that there is no effective medication for ...

这是在一篇文章评审过程中,从reviewer那儿学来一个词。就学着用到了修改后的manuscript中,可是另一个reviewer不买账了,这才查了这个词到底有多神秘。. Wiki上关于endophenotype的定义,"Endophenotype is a genetic epidemiology term which is used to parse behavioral symptoms into more stable phenotypes with a clear genetic connection.". 似乎有严格的定义,一要稳定,而要有明确的遗传效应。. 当然,wiki也提及了可能用来替代endophenotype的词,"Some other terms which have a similar meaning but do not stress the genetic connection as highly are "intermediate phenotype", "biological marker", "subclinical trait", "vulnerability marker", and "cognitive marker".". 看来还是大家常用的biological marker或者subclinical trait相对妥当,除非真的把遗传效应说明白了。. ...

This pilot project will evaluate yoga as an intervention to improve attention and reduce challenging behaviors such as hyperactivity and impulsivity, rated by parent and teachers, in preschool age children with or at risk for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). At Risk for ADHD will be defined as four or more hyperactive/impulsive and/or inattentive symptoms on the ADHD Rating Scale IV-Preschool Version as rated by parents or teachers. Using a randomized wait-list controlled experimental design, the investigators will explore the efficacy of practicing yoga for 6 weeks on behavioral symptoms, attentional control using a computer based tasks of attention, and heart rate variability (HRV), which is a measure of self-regulatory capacity. The investigators hypothesize that practicing yoga for six weeks of will improve ADHD and other behavioral symptoms based on parent and teacher rating scales, which will correlate with improvements in scores on the computer based task of attention ...
This association was discovered using data from the GINI-plus study by scientists of Helmholtz Zentrum München in collaboration with colleagues of Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich, Technische Universität München and Marienhospital Wesel. The scientists observed that the impact of tobacco smoke was especially detrimental during gestation. The results of the study have been published in the current online issue of the renowned journal Environmental Health Perspectives.. "We were able to show that children who are exposed to tobacco smoke prenatally and during the first years of life have a higher risk of developing abnormal behavioral symptoms when they are of school age," said Dr. Joachim Heinrich of the Institute of Epidemiology at Helmholtz Zentrum München. "Moreover, it makes a difference whether the child was exposed to tobacco smoke first after birth or was already confronted with it during prenatal development.". According to the study, children who were only exposed to tobacco ...
In this study, we compared the presentations of BPSD among patients with SIVD and AD at different stages of dementia. Using standardized neuropsychiatric instruments and DTI, distinct patterns of correlations and predictive factors between these two dementia subtypes were noted, thus providing further insight into the neurobiological mechanisms related to BPSD.. The results of previous studies on associations between neuropsychiatric manifestations and the severity of dementia in patients with AD and VaD have been inconsistent [4, 36, 37]. This may have been due to by different diagnostic criteria and neuroimaging tools. In one cohort study which recruited 28 pairs of patients with VaD and AD matched by demographic and cognitive profiles, the patients with VaD had more severe behavioral retardation, depression, and anxiety than those with AD [36]. A subsequent, larger study also reported a similar observation, where patients with VaD were prone to show more pronounced presentations of BPSD [37]. ...
Alzheimers Disease advances in stages, ranging from mild forgetfulness to severe dementia. The course of the disease and the rate of decline varies from person to person. The duration from onset of symptoms to death can be from 5 to 20 years.. Currently, there is not a cure for Alzheimers Disease, but new forms of treatment can slow the progression of the disease for some individuals. However, some experimental drugs have shown promise in easing symptoms in some patients. Medications can help control behavioral symptoms; making patients more comfortable and easier to manage for caregivers. Still other research efforts focus on alternative care programs that provide relief to the caregiver and support for the patient. ...
ADHD is short for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder. It is covers a wide range of behavioral symptoms which may include hyperactivity, lack of attention or concentration and tendency towards impulsive behavior.
Buy Quetiapina Online! Quetiapina is an antipsychotic medication marketed by AstraZeneca for the treatment of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. In Huntingtons disease, Quetiapina has been shown to improve behavioral symptoms and may decrease chorea, uncontrollable and involuntary dance-like movements, a hallmark of the disease.
It is generally believed that treatments are available to manage chorea in Huntingtons disease (HD). However, lack of evidence prevents the establishment of treatment guidelines. The HD chorea research literature fails to address the indications for drug treatment, drug selection, drug dosing and side effect profiles, management of inadequate response to a single drug, and preferred drug when behavioral symptoms comorbid to chorea are present. Because there is lack of an evidence base to inform clinical decision-making, we surveyed an international group of experts to address these points. Survey results showed that patient stigma, physical injury, gait instability, work interference, and disturbed sleep were indications for a drug treatment trial. However, the experts did not agree on first choice of chorea drug, with the majority of experts in Europe favoring an antipsychotic drug (APD), and a near equal split in first choice between an APD and tetrabenazine (TBZ) among experts from North ...

Dental anxiety has been identified as a significant and common problem in both children and adults and is considered an obstacle for dental care providers in the delivery of quality oral care. Patients with dental anxiety tend to avoid professional dental care which poses a problem for dentists and patients alike.There are various treatment options for reducing dental anxiety. Music has been used in different medical fields to meet physiological, psychological, and spiritual needs of patients. Music interventions can either be passive (music listening) or active music (therapy).There was a significant gap in the literature on the effectiveness of music therapy and music listening in reducing dental anxiety in patients undergoing various dental treatments/procedures. This systematic review specifically examined the effectiveness of music interventions in reducing dental anxiety in both paediatric and adult patients.The objective of this systematic review was to critically appraise, synthesise and ...
Objective: The aim of our study was to estimate the prevalence of behavioral symptoms and associated factors in the elderly in the Central African Republic and the Republic of Congo. Methods: An analysis of baseline data was performed from the EPIDEMCA (Epidemiology of Dementia in Central Africa) multicenter population-based study carried out in rural and urban areas of the Central African Republic and the Republic of Congo between 2011 and 2012 in elderly aged 65 and over. Cognitive disorders were assessed in two phases. The first phase was cognitive screening using the Community Screening Interview in Dementia. Following cognitive screening, in the second phase, participants suspected of dementia underwent clinical assessment based on the abridged version of the neuropsychiatric inventory (NPI) which assesses 12 behavioral disorders in the elderly over the previous 30 days. Results: NPI data were available for 532 out of participants examined in the second phase of EPIDEMCA. Among the 532
In this nationally representative sample, children with common behavioral disorders incurred overall expenditures similar to those of children with asthma, epilepsy, and diabetes. These expenditures were significantly greater than those of children without these conditions. Children with behavioral disorders had increased overall expenditures mainly as a result of greater office-based ambulatory care and prescription medication costs. Among children with behavioral disorders, children with emotional disorders incurred twofold higher expenditures than children with disruptive disorders. These increased expenditures were in part caused by substantially greater expenditures for inpatient hospital stays.. Our finding that children with common behavioral disorders and physical conditions incur similar health care costs is consistent with previously reported findings involving comparisons of children with ADHD and asthma. For instance, Kelleher et al, using Medicaid data from southwestern ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The influence of music during mechanical ventilation and weaning from mechanical ventilation. T2 - A review. AU - Hetland, Breanna. AU - Lindquist, Ruth. AU - Chlan, Linda. PY - 2015/9/1. Y1 - 2015/9/1. N2 - Mechanical ventilation (MV) causes many distressing symptoms. Weaning, the gradual decrease in ventilator assistance leading to termination of MV, increases respiratory effort, which may exacerbate symptoms and prolong MV. Music, a non-pharmacological intervention without side effects may benefit patients during weaning from mechanical ventilatory support. A narrative review of OVID Medline, PsychINFO, and CINAHL databases was conducted to examine the evidence for the use of music intervention in MV and MV weaning. Music intervention had a positive impact on ventilated patients; 16 quantitative and 2 qualitative studies were identified. Quantitative studies included randomized clinical trials (10), case controls (3), pilot studies (2) and a feasibility study. Evidence ...
Children of different developmental stages interpret the world differently and at their own distinctive pace.7 Their developmental stage uniquely influences their response to traumatic events, and consequently, they display a great deal of variability in adjustment subsequent to traumatic events. Interventions to alleviate the psychological burden should be developmentally appropriate.25. The response of younger children to disaster is dominated by mood, anxiety, and behavioral symptoms.6 They are largely unable to understand the intentions and logic of others and, consequently, have great difficulty distinguishing a deliberate action from an unintentional incident. As a result, in the face of disaster, young children are more concerned with the consequences, and older children are more aware of the underlying principles of a traumatic event.7 Although older children also experience depression, their anxiety may take on specific and perhaps unrealistic forms and fears, and their behavioral ...
Chimpanzees are animals that, regardless of whether theyre male or female, normally do not have a propensity to kill. In normal, non-threatening situations, they are peaceful animals. As Jane Goodall once said, they are "far more peaceable than humans." This can be seen in populations that have not been greatly mucked about by humans, such as Goualougo and Fongoli, two reservations in the Congo and Senegal. However, chimpanzees are also very intelligent and sensitive animals and, once their environment is stressed, either directly by humans or indirectly by humans, can develop many behavioral symptoms. These symptoms have been explored by Margaret Clark (1991). When the population is too large for the area, when there are too many males per female or in one place, when the animals normal pattern of dispersion is disturbed, etc., animals, especially males, are able and do kill one another. The specific reasons for these behaviors are likely to be different in different situations and can be ...
0003]Epidemiologic studies indicate that approximately 60% of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-1-infected patients suffer some form of related neuropsychiatric impairment (H. Ozdener, Molecular Mechanisms of HIV-1 Associated Neurodegeneration, J. Biosci., 30, 391-405, 2005; A. Stephanou, Role of STAT-1 and STAT-3 in Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury, J. Cell Mol.

The molecular missteps that disrupt brain function in the most common form of adult-onset muscular dystrophy have been revealed in a new study. Myotonic dystrophy is marked by progressive muscle wasting and weakness, as well as sleepiness, memory problems, and mental retardation. A new mouse model reported in the journal Neuron reproduces key cognitive and behavioral symptoms of this disease and could be used to develop drug treatments, which are currently lacking.
Background: In vitro and in vivo studies of anesthetics have demonstrated serious neurotoxic effects on the developing brain. However, the clinical relevance of these findings to children undergoing anesthesia remains unclear. Using data from a sibling birth cohort, we assessed the association between exposure to anesthesia in the setting of surgery in patients younger than 3 years and the risk of developmental and behavioral disorders. Methods: We constructed a retrospective cohort of 10,450 siblings who were born between 1999 and 2005 and who were enrolled in the New York State Medicaid program. The exposed group was 304 children without a history of developmental or behavioral disorders who underwent surgery when they were younger than 3 years. The unexposed group was 10,146 children who did not receive any surgical procedures when they were younger than 3 years. Exposed children were entered into analysis at the date of surgery. Unexposed children were entered into analysis at age 10 months (the

Genetic mutation found to restore translational balance in mice. In a biological quirk that promises to provide researchers with a new approach for studying and potentially treating Fragile X syndrome, scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) have shown that knocking out a gene important for messenger RNA (mRNA) translation in neurons restores memory deficits and reduces behavioral symptoms in a mouse model of a prevalent human neurological disease. These results, published today in Nature Medicine, suggest that the prime cause of the Fragile X syndrome may be a translational imbalance that results in elevated protein production in the brain. Restoration of this balance may be necessary for normal neurological function.. "Biology works in strange ways," said Joel Richter, PhD, professor of molecular medicine at UMMS and senior author on the study. "We corrected one genetic mutation with another, which in effect showed that two wrongs make a right. Mutations in each ...
The uniformity of clinical progression in patients with SSPE suggests a common pattern of neuropathologic progress in the central nervous system. Previous autopsy reports revealed that inflammatory infiltrations in cortical gray matter are the prominent pathologic finding in the early periods of SSPE.1,15 In later stages of the disease, the neuropathologic findings spread into adjacent subcortical white matter. Early involvement of cortical gray matter would explain the nonspecific subtle behavioral symptoms that are frequently seen in the initial stages of SSPE. However, contrary to the early cortical involvement shown by the neuropathologic studies, conventional MR imaging examinations performed in patients with early disease usually reveal normal findings. Thus, cortical involvement in early SSPE could not be demonstrated in previous neuroimaging studies. The results of the current study revealed the reduced gray matter volume in the bilateral frontotemporal cortex, including the amygdala and ...
Within DM1 there are additional subtypes, depending on a persons age at onset of symptoms. The age of onset is roughly correlated with the size of the DNA expansion, with larger expansions associated with earlier disease onset. Below are listed and explained the three subtypes of Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 (DM1).. Congenital-Onset DM1 -This type of Myotonic Dystrophy begins at or around the time of birth and its the most severe of the three types. Occurs when a mother, unaware of having DM1 passes the genes mutation to her child. Characterized by severe muscle weakness, cognitive impairment and other developmental abnormalities. (In DM2, there have been no reported cases of a congenital form).. Juvenile-onset DM1 -This other type of Myotonic Dystrophy begins between early childhood and early adolescence (after birth but before being adolescent) and is characterized by cognitive and behavioral symptoms, muscle weakness, myotonia (difficulty relaxing muscles after use) and other ...

Behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) are often temporary. The mainstay treatment of BPSD is non-pharmacological. Antipsychotic medicines should only be considered when non-pharmacological interventions have failed and the patient has symptoms that are distressing for them, their family or co-residents.. Patients or their carer, or designated guardian, should be involved in the decision to begin treatment with an antipsychotic medicine. Consideration needs to be given to the patients ability to appreciate the consequences of refusing, or agreeing to, treatment.. If used, the dose of the antipsychotic medicine should be increased as slowly as necessary with the goal of using the lowest effective dose for the shortest possible time. The effectiveness of the medicine and the occurrence of delirium, sedation, or anti-cholinergic side effects should be assessed at least weekly.. Treatment should be reviewed after no more than 3 months and the dose should be reduced and then ...
