Bulbar Palsy, Progressive: A motor neuron disease marked by progressive weakness of the muscles innervated by cranial nerves of the lower brain stem. Clinical manifestations include dysarthria, dysphagia, facial weakness, tongue weakness, and fasciculations of the tongue and facial muscles. The adult form of the disease is marked initially by bulbar weakness which progresses to involve motor neurons throughout the neuroaxis. Eventually this condition may become indistinguishable from AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS. Fazio-Londe syndrome is an inherited form of this illness which occurs in children and young adults. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1091; Brain 1992 Dec;115(Pt 6):1889-1900)Dictionaries, MedicalParalysis: A general term most often used to describe severe or complete loss of muscle strength due to motor system disease from the level of the cerebral cortex to the muscle fiber. This term may also occasionally refer to a loss of sensory function. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p45)Dictionaries as Topic: Lists of words, usually in alphabetical order, giving information about form, pronunciation, etymology, grammar, and meaning.Respiratory Paralysis: Complete or severe weakness of the muscles of respiration. This condition may be associated with MOTOR NEURON DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVE DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; injury to the PHRENIC NERVE; and other disorders.Vocal Cord Paralysis: Congenital or acquired paralysis of one or both VOCAL CORDS. This condition is caused by defects in the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, the VAGUS NERVE and branches of LARYNGEAL NERVES. Common symptoms are VOICE DISORDERS including HOARSENESS or APHONIA.Dictionaries, ChemicalParalyses, Familial Periodic: A heterogenous group of inherited disorders characterized by recurring attacks of rapidly progressive flaccid paralysis or myotonia. These conditions have in common a mutation of the gene encoding the alpha subunit of the sodium channel in skeletal muscle. They are frequently associated with fluctuations in serum potassium levels. Periodic paralysis may also occur as a non-familial process secondary to THYROTOXICOSIS and other conditions. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1481)Self-Help Groups: Organizations which provide an environment encouraging social interactions through group activities or individual relationships especially for the purpose of rehabilitating or supporting patients, individuals with common health problems, or the elderly. They include therapeutic social clubs.Psychotherapy, Group: A form of therapy in which two or more patients participate under the guidance of one or more psychotherapists for the purpose of treating emotional disturbances, social maladjustments, and psychotic states.Newspapers: Publications printed and distributed daily, weekly, or at some other regular and usually short interval, containing news, articles of opinion (as editorials and letters), features, advertising, and announcements of current interest. (Webster's 3d ed)Mass Media: Instruments or technological means of communication that reach large numbers of people with a common message: press, radio, television, etc.Social Support: Support systems that provide assistance and encouragement to individuals with physical or emotional disabilities in order that they may better cope. Informal social support is usually provided by friends, relatives, or peers, while formal assistance is provided by churches, groups, etc.Internet: A loose confederation of computer communication networks around the world. The networks that make up the Internet are connected through several backbone networks. The Internet grew out of the US Government ARPAnet project and was designed to facilitate information exchange.Feminism: The theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes and organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests. (Webster New Collegiate Dictionary, 1981)Crowdsourcing: Social media model for enabling public involvement and recruitment in participation. Use of social media to collect feedback and recruit volunteer subjects.Terminology as Topic: The terms, expressions, designations, or symbols used in a particular science, discipline, or specialized subject area.Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis: A degenerative disorder affecting upper MOTOR NEURONS in the brain and lower motor neurons in the brain stem and SPINAL CORD. Disease onset is usually after the age of 50 and the process is usually fatal within 3 to 6 years. Clinical manifestations include progressive weakness, atrophy, FASCICULATION, hyperreflexia, DYSARTHRIA, dysphagia, and eventual paralysis of respiratory function. Pathologic features include the replacement of motor neurons with fibrous ASTROCYTES and atrophy of anterior SPINAL NERVE ROOTS and corticospinal tracts. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1089-94)Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine: A medical specialty concerned with the use of physical agents, mechanical apparatus, and manipulation in rehabilitating physically diseased or injured patients.Motor Neuron Disease: Diseases characterized by a selective degeneration of the motor neurons of the spinal cord, brainstem, or motor cortex. Clinical subtypes are distinguished by the major site of degeneration. In AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS there is involvement of upper, lower, and brainstem motor neurons. In progressive muscular atrophy and related syndromes (see MUSCULAR ATROPHY, SPINAL) the motor neurons in the spinal cord are primarily affected. With progressive bulbar palsy (BULBAR PALSY, PROGRESSIVE), the initial degeneration occurs in the brainstem. In primary lateral sclerosis, the cortical neurons are affected in isolation. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1089)Occupational Therapy: Skilled treatment that helps individuals achieve independence in all facets of their lives. It assists in the development of skills needed for independent living.Motor Neurons: Neurons which activate MUSCLE CELLS.Rehabilitation: Restoration of human functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from disease or injury.Superoxide Dismutase: An oxidoreductase that catalyzes the reaction between superoxide anions and hydrogen to yield molecular oxygen and hydrogen peroxide. The enzyme protects the cell against dangerous levels of superoxide. EC 1.15.1.1.Botulism: A disease caused by potent protein NEUROTOXINS produced by CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM which interfere with the presynaptic release of ACETYLCHOLINE at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION. Clinical features include abdominal pain, vomiting, acute PARALYSIS (including respiratory paralysis), blurred vision, and DIPLOPIA. Botulism may be classified into several subtypes (e.g., food-borne, infant, wound, and others). (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1208)Immunoglobulins: Multi-subunit proteins which function in IMMUNITY. They are produced by B LYMPHOCYTES from the IMMUNOGLOBULIN GENES. They are comprised of two heavy (IMMUNOGLOBULIN HEAVY CHAINS) and two light chains (IMMUNOGLOBULIN LIGHT CHAINS) with additional ancillary polypeptide chains depending on their isoforms. The variety of isoforms include monomeric or polymeric forms, and transmembrane forms (B-CELL ANTIGEN RECEPTORS) or secreted forms (ANTIBODIES). They are divided by the amino acid sequence of their heavy chains into five classes (IMMUNOGLOBULIN A; IMMUNOGLOBULIN D; IMMUNOGLOBULIN E; IMMUNOGLOBULIN G; IMMUNOGLOBULIN M) and various subclasses.Botulinum Toxins: Toxic proteins produced from the species CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM. The toxins are synthesized as a single peptide chain which is processed into a mature protein consisting of a heavy chain and light chain joined via a disulfide bond. The botulinum toxin light chain is a zinc-dependent protease which is released from the heavy chain upon ENDOCYTOSIS into PRESYNAPTIC NERVE ENDINGS. Once inside the cell the botulinum toxin light chain cleaves specific SNARE proteins which are essential for secretion of ACETYLCHOLINE by SYNAPTIC VESICLES. This inhibition of acetylcholine release results in muscular PARALYSIS.Orphan Drug Production: Production of drugs or biologicals which are unlikely to be manufactured by private industry unless special incentives are provided by others.Clostridium botulinum: A species of anaerobic, gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria in the family Clostridiaceae that produces proteins with characteristic neurotoxicity. It is the etiologic agent of BOTULISM in humans, wild fowl, HORSES; and CATTLE. Seven subtypes (sometimes called antigenic types, or strains) exist, each producing a different botulinum toxin (BOTULINUM TOXINS). The organism and its spores are widely distributed in nature.Rho(D) Immune Globulin: Immunizing agent containing IMMUNOGLOBULIN G anti-Rho(D) used for preventing Rh immunization in Rh-negative individuals exposed to Rh-positive red blood cells.Botulinum Toxins, Type A: A serotype of botulinum toxins that has specificity for cleavage of SYNAPTOSOMAL-ASSOCIATED PROTEIN 25.Riluzole: A glutamate antagonist (RECEPTORS, GLUTAMATE) used as an anticonvulsant (ANTICONVULSANTS) and to prolong the survival of patients with AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS.Treatment Outcome: Evaluation undertaken to assess the results or consequences of management and procedures used in combating disease in order to determine the efficacy, effectiveness, safety, and practicability of these interventions in individual cases or series.Clinical Trials as Topic: Works about pre-planned studies of the safety, efficacy, or optimum dosage schedule (if appropriate) of one or more diagnostic, therapeutic, or prophylactic drugs, devices, or techniques selected according to predetermined criteria of eligibility and observed for predefined evidence of favorable and unfavorable effects. This concept includes clinical trials conducted both in the U.S. and in other countries.Cranial Nerve Diseases: Disorders of one or more of the twelve cranial nerves. With the exception of the optic and olfactory nerves, this includes disorders of the brain stem nuclei from which the cranial nerves originate or terminate.Cranial Nerves: Twelve pairs of nerves that carry general afferent, visceral afferent, special afferent, somatic efferent, and autonomic efferent fibers.Abducens Nerve Diseases: Diseases of the sixth cranial (abducens) nerve or its nucleus in the pons. The nerve may be injured along its course in the pons, intracranially as it travels along the base of the brain, in the cavernous sinus, or at the level of superior orbital fissure or orbit. Dysfunction of the nerve causes lateral rectus muscle weakness, resulting in horizontal diplopia that is maximal when the affected eye is abducted and ESOTROPIA. Common conditions associated with nerve injury include INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION; CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; ISCHEMIA; and INFRATENTORIAL NEOPLASMS.Oculomotor Nerve Diseases: Diseases of the oculomotor nerve or nucleus that result in weakness or paralysis of the superior rectus, inferior rectus, medial rectus, inferior oblique, or levator palpebrae muscles, or impaired parasympathetic innervation to the pupil. With a complete oculomotor palsy, the eyelid will be paralyzed, the eye will be in an abducted and inferior position, and the pupil will be markedly dilated. Commonly associated conditions include neoplasms, CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA, ischemia (especially in association with DIABETES MELLITUS), and aneurysmal compression. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p270)Diagnostic Errors: Incorrect diagnoses after clinical examination or technical diagnostic procedures.Cranial Nerve Injuries: Dysfunction of one or more cranial nerves causally related to a traumatic injury. Penetrating and nonpenetrating CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; NECK INJURIES; and trauma to the facial region are conditions associated with cranial nerve injuries.Facial Paralysis: Severe or complete loss of facial muscle motor function. This condition may result from central or peripheral lesions. Damage to CNS motor pathways from the cerebral cortex to the facial nuclei in the pons leads to facial weakness that generally spares the forehead muscles. FACIAL NERVE DISEASES generally results in generalized hemifacial weakness. NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION DISEASES and MUSCULAR DISEASES may also cause facial paralysis or paresis.Gastrointestinal Diseases: Diseases in any segment of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT from ESOPHAGUS to RECTUM.Deglutition Disorders: Difficulty in SWALLOWING which may result from neuromuscular disorder or mechanical obstruction. Dysphagia is classified into two distinct types: oropharyngeal dysphagia due to malfunction of the PHARYNX and UPPER ESOPHAGEAL SPHINCTER; and esophageal dysphagia due to malfunction of the ESOPHAGUS.Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A disorder with chronic or recurrent colonic symptoms without a clearcut etiology. This condition is characterized by chronic or recurrent ABDOMINAL PAIN, bloating, MUCUS in FECES, and an erratic disturbance of DEFECATION.Colonic Diseases, Functional: Chronic or recurrent colonic disorders without an identifiable structural or biochemical explanation. The widely recognized IRRITABLE BOWEL SYNDROME falls into this category.Abdominal Pain: Sensation of discomfort, distress, or agony in the abdominal region.Dyspepsia: Impaired digestion, especially after eating.Constipation: Infrequent or difficult evacuation of FECES. These symptoms are associated with a variety of causes, including low DIETARY FIBER intake, emotional or nervous disturbances, systemic and structural disorders, drug-induced aggravation, and infections.Encyclopedias as Topic: Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)RNA-Binding Protein FUS: A multifunctional heterogeneous-nuclear ribonucleoprotein that may play a role in homologous DNA pairing and recombination. The N-terminal portion of protein is a potent transcriptional activator, while the C terminus is required for RNA binding. The name FUS refers to the fact that genetic recombination events result in fusion oncogene proteins (ONCOGENE PROTEINS, FUSION) that contain the N-terminal region of this protein. These fusion proteins have been found in myxoid liposarcoma (LIPOSARCOMA, MYXOID) and acute myeloid leukemia.Multiple Sclerosis: An autoimmune disorder mainly affecting young adults and characterized by destruction of myelin in the central nervous system. Pathologic findings include multiple sharply demarcated areas of demyelination throughout the white matter of the central nervous system. Clinical manifestations include visual loss, extra-ocular movement disorders, paresthesias, loss of sensation, weakness, dysarthria, spasticity, ataxia, and bladder dysfunction. The usual pattern is one of recurrent attacks followed by partial recovery (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, RELAPSING-REMITTING), but acute fulminating and chronic progressive forms (see MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS, CHRONIC PROGRESSIVE) also occur. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p903)

Antiganglioside antibody in patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome who show bulbar palsy as an initial symptom. (1/48)

OBJECTIVES: To identify valuable antiganglioside antibodies that support the diagnosis of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) and its variants in patients showing bulbar palsy as an initial symptom. METHODS: Medical records of 602 patients with GBS or its variants were reviewed. Fifteen patients had bulbar palsy as an initial symptom. Serum antibodies against GM1, GM1b, GD1a, GalNAc-GD1a, GT1a, and GQ1b were examined in 13 of them. RESULTS: Serum antiganglioside antibodies were positive in 11 (85%) patients. IgG anti-GT1a (n=8; 62%) and anti-GM1b (n=7; 54%) antibodies were often present, whereas all the patients had low or no anti-GM1 antibody activity. High anti-GD1a and anti-GQ1b IgG antibody titres were also present in some patients, but most had higher IgG antibody titres to GM1b or GT1a. All five patients with high IgG antibody titre to GM1b or GT1a only had had antecedent diarrhoea. Some patients with pharyngeal-cervical-brachial weakness (PCB) had IgG antibody to GT1a which did not cross react with GQ1b. Other patients with PCB had antibody to GT1a which cross reacted with GQ1b or antibody to GM1b, but anti-GM1b and anti-GT1a antibodies were not associated with the presence of bulbar palsy. All the patients who had no IgG antiganglioside antibodies recovered completely. CONCLUSIONS: Measurement of serum IgG anti-GT1a and anti-GM1b antibodies gives helpful support for the diagnosis of GBS and its variants when there is early involvement of the oropharyngeal function independently of other neurological findings which appear as the illness progresses.  (+info)

Worster-Drought syndrome, a mild tetraplegic perisylvian cerebral palsy. Review of 47 cases. (2/48)

A retrospective case-note analysis was undertaken of 47 children with a congenital upper motor neurone bulbar palsy (excluding pure speech dyspraxia) to clarify the phenotype of Worster-Drought syndrome (WDS) and to record its associated features and complications. The results revealed that the study children had significant bulbar problems (with 80% still needing a modified diet and a similar number using augmentative communication methods at last review). There were also high rates of predictable bulbar complications (86% had dribbling, 60% had glue ear, gastro-oesophageal reflux in 40%, history of poor nutrition in 40% and aspiration in 40%). Most of the children had additional complex impairments (91% had mild pyramidal tetraplegia, 81% learning difficulties, 60% congenital defects, 41% neuropsychiatric problems and 28% epilepsy). Over half of the children had significant medical problems in the first year, but mean age at diagnosis was 6 years. There were no obvious causes in pregnancy or birth. Six children had a family history of WDS and 32% (12/37) had abnormal neuroimaging including five with bilateral perisylvian polymicrogyria. In our experience, WDS is not uncommon, is relatively easily diagnosed and is crucial not to miss as the management of these children's multiple impairments is complex and requires a careful team approach. WDS falls clearly within the cerebral palsies as a syndrome that includes motor impairment arising from static damage to the brain in early life. The common presence of cognitive, behavioural and seizure impairments strongly supports the cerebral cortical (presumably perisylvian) localization. Its core elements are a suprabulbar paresis, a mild spastic tetraplegia and a significant excess of cognitive and behavioural impairments and epilepsy. The complete overlap in phenotype between WDS and the bilateral perisylvian syndrome leads us to propose that they are the same condition. WDS is startlingly absent from epidemiological studies of the cerebral palsies and rarely diagnosed, presumably because of lack of clinical awareness of the condition and lack of major gross motor impairments.  (+info)

Motor neuron diseases in the university hospital of Fortaleza (Northeastern Brazil): a clinico-demographic analysis of 87 cases. (3/48)

In this retrospective (1980-1998) study, we have analyzed clinico-demographically, from the records of the University Hospital of Fortaleza (Brazil), a group of 87 patients showing signs and symptoms of motor neuron diseases (MNDs). Their diagnosis was determined clinically and laboratorially. The WFN criteria were used for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) diagnosis. The clinico-demographic analysis of the 87 cases of MNDs showed that 4 were diagnosed as spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), 5 cases as ALS subsets: 2 as progressive bulbar paralysis (PBP), 2 as progressive muscular atrophy (PMA) and 1 as monomelic amyotrophy (MA), and 78 cases of ALS. The latter comprised 51 males and 27 females, with a mean age of 42.02 years. They were sub-divided into 4 groups according to age: from 15 to 29 years (n= 17), 30 to 39 years (n= 18), 40 to 69 years (n= 39) and 70 to 78 years (n= 4). From the 78 ALS patients, 76 were of the classic sporadic form whilst only 2 were of the familial form. The analysis of the 87 patients with MNDs from the University Hospital of Fortaleza showed a predominance of ALS patients, with a high number of cases of juvenile and early onset adult sporadic ALS.  (+info)

Non-invasive screening for surgical intracranial lesions. (4/48)

The value and reliability of the combined results of skull radiographs, electroencephalography, echoencephalography, isotope angiography, and brain scanning in 147 patients suspected of having an intracranial space occupying lesions are analysed. The overall accuracy of the technique was 79%. No false negatives were found. The advantages of adopting the system proposed by the authors in everyday clinical work is discussed.  (+info)

Rehabilitation for postpolio sequelae. (5/48)

BACKGROUND: Postpolio sequelae (PPS) are new, late manifestations that occur many years after the initial poliomyelitis infection. Recurrence of symptoms and fear of reactivation of the polio virus is particularly distressing to polio survivors. OBJECTIVE: This article outlines the diagnosis, pathophysiology, and management of PPS disabilities using a case vignette. DISCUSSION: Clinical features of PPS include fatigue, joint and muscle pain, new muscular weakness and bulbar symptoms. Diagnosis can be complicated particularly in nonparalytic cases of poliomyelitis. Disabilities in PPS may not be obvious to the observer but significantly affect the quality of life of the PPS patient. Previous rehabilitation intervention focussed on physical effort and determination to overcome disability at all costs. The treatment in PPS is now modified, and aggressive physical measures that may exacerbate muscle weakness are avoided. Most disabilities in PPS can be well managed with rehabilitation interventions that address limitations in patient activities of daily living, mobility and cardiopulmonary fitness.  (+info)

Subacute bulbar palsy as the initial sign of follicular thyroid cancer. (6/48)

We report a 64-year-old woman with follicular thyroid cancer found by subacute bulbar palsy. Progressive bulbar palsy (PBP) was considered the most likely diagnosis, because no abnormal finding was detected on brain CT and blood test except for the decrease of free T4. An echogram of the thyroid revealed a small nodule which was shown to be class IIb by fine needle biopsy. However, 201Tl scintillation examination showed skull base metastasis. Follicular thyroid cancer sometimes seems to manifest as a distant metastasis with no clinically evident thyroid lesion. This case suggested the importance of a detailed survey for malignancy, when subacute bulbar palsy is seen.  (+info)

Congenital oculo-bulbar palsy. (7/48)

A girl developed progressive weakness of bulbar and ocular muscles starting before the age of two years. Electromyography revealed a widespread subclinical myopathy. An intercostal muscle biopsy showed complex abnormalities including occasional neurofilamentous accumulations and honeycomb-like membranous material in terminal axons. Endplates were small and some secondary synaptic clefts were abnormally deep. Acetylcholine receptors extended unusually deeply into the clefts of the junctional folds. Muscle fibres showed subsarcolemmal vacuolation at some places. This form of congenital oculo-bulbar palsy does not appear to have been described previously.  (+info)

The Scottish Motor Neuron Disease Register: a prospective study of adult onset motor neuron disease in Scotland. Methodology, demography and clinical features of incident cases in 1989. (8/48)

The Scottish Motor Neuron Disease Register (SMNDR) is a prospective, collaborative, population based study of motor neuron disease (MND) in Scotland. The register started in January 1989 with the aim of studying the clinical and epidemiological features of MND by prospectively identifying incident patients. It is based on a system of registration by recruitment from multiple sources, followed by the collection of complete clinical data and follow up, mainly through general practitioners. In this report the register's methodology and the demography and incidence data for the first year of study are presented. One hundred and fourteen newly diagnosed patients were identified in 1989 giving a crude incidence for Scotland of 2.24/100,000/year. Standardised incidence ratios showed a non-significant trend towards lower rates in north eastern regions and island areas.  (+info)

YEL-AND is a serious but rarely fatal adverse event. YEL-AND manifests as several distinct clinical syndromes, including meningoencephalitis (neurotropic disease), Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM), and bulbar palsy (91,92). Meningoencephalitis occurs as a result of direct YF vaccine viral invasion of the central nervous system (CNS) with infection of the meninges and/or the brain. The other neurologic syndromes (e.g., GBS and ADEM) represent autoimmune manifestations in which antibodies and/or T-cells produced in response to the vaccine cross-react with neuronal epitopes and lead to central or peripheral nerve damage.. Through the attenuation process, YF vaccine virus strains were determined to develop neurovirulence (93,94). Early in the vaccines history, multiple cases of encephalitis associated with vaccine administration were noted and determined to be attributable to too few or too many passages of the virus during the attenuation process. This ...

Based within the WA Centre for Cancer and Palliative Care, the study looks at whether the process of reflecting on ones life in a recorded interview can relieve psychological distress as a person faces the end of their life. "This type of therapy (coined dignity therapy) was developed in Canada by Dr Harvey Max Chochinov and was originally used with cancer patients and delivered good results," Ms Bentley said. "So far, 24 people with MND have taken part in the study and in a few cases, interviews have taken place via email as some people with MND can lose the ability to speak. "Im hoping to encourage another 10 people to take part in the study before analysing the results and bringing the study to a conclusion early next year.". According to Ms Bentley, dignity therapy could be particularly effective for not only MND sufferers, but also their carers.. "MND is a family disease, and family carers carry an exceptional burden by providing extraordinary amounts of care. Previous research in ...

THURSDAY, Dec. 22, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Nearly $184 million has been earmarked to protect Americans against Zika virus infection, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced Thursday.. The funding will go to states, territories, local governments and universities. Its part of $350 million awarded to the CDC by Congress earlier in 2016 for Zika response and preparedness, the agency said.. "Zika continues to be a threat to pregnant women," CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden said in an agency news release. "States, territories, and communities need this CDC funding to fight Zika and protect the next generation of Americans.". Zika exposure in pregnancy can cause microcephaly -- which leads to an abnormally small brain and head -- and other serious birth defects. Also, some adults develop a rare neurological disorder called Guillain-Barre syndrome.. The CDC said the supplemental funds will help states control mosquitoes and beef up communication to the public and health care ...
Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare neurological disorder which causes progressive paralysis, starting from the feet and progressing up throughout the rest of the affected persons body (ascending paraplegia). It occurs when the bodys immune system attacks the peripheral nerves in the body. This is known as an autoimmune disease and can be triggered following a surgical infection, or by a flu-like illness or stomach infection. As the immune system fights off the infection, it mistakenly attacks the peripheral nerves.

Results We screened 2430 unique records and included 52 quantitative and six qualitative papers. Factors reported to be associated with NIV optimisation included coordinated multidisciplinary care, place of initiation, selection of interfaces, ventilator modes and settings appropriate for the individual patient, and adequate secretion management. The literature indicated that patients with significant bulbar dysfunction can still derive considerable benefit from NIV if their needs are met. Research emphasises that obstructive airway events, mask leak and uncontrolled secretions should be addressed by adjustments to the interface and machine settings, and the concomitant use of cough augmentation. ...

ANTHONY TRIATHLON, YOUVE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE!!!Click the big DONATE button to help Team Goodwill raise money to battle Angelman Syndrome (AS), a rare neurological disorder on the Autism spectrum that occurs in approximately one of every 15,000 births.Funding for AS is woefully small despite the increased interest in AS, recent scientific advances and the potential for insight into other related disorders. The National Institutes on Health (NIH) will fund research for over $2.5 billion in the area of aging and $246 million was projected for Alzheimers disease alone for 2012. On the other hand, Angelman Syndrome is grouped with other rare human disorders and has no earmarked funding for 2013, so it can use all the help from charitable groups like ours that it can get.Theres good reason for hope and optimism for an AS cure and therapeutic treatments.

The present studies demonstrate that low concentrations of H2O2 can decrease levels of tetanic and NN-LTP, as well as completely block the formation of LTPm resulting from exposure to CCh. H2O2 is formed in normal brain tissue, and its ambient concentration in neurons is kept low primarily by a fast breakdown by glutathione peroxidase (in neurons) or catalase (in many other cell types). H2O2 can, however, reach high levels in brains of aged animals, owing to a change in the balance between its production and breakdown. The production of H2O2 is catalyzed by the enzyme CuZn-superoxide dismutase, which is a ubiquitous enzyme. In fact, levels of H2O2 need not be very high to have an effect. We observe a total suppression of LTPm with added H2O2 in the micromolar concentration range, which is 20 times lower than doses used by others to observe effects on LTP in the hippocampus (Pellmar et al., 1991). These micromolar concentrations can indeed be reached in the aged brain, as shown previously (Sohal ...

Hi I have already been diagnosed with RSD a rare neurological disorder in which my leg feels like it is constantly on fire accompanied by swelling color and temperature changes. Recently I did an awake ketamine infusion for 4 hours for 4 days in which I was confined to a stretcher. During the treatment however I was becoming tachycardic. (becoming a little tachycardic is normal on ketamine, but I continued to become increasingly tachycardic) My doctor could not get me to the highest dose of ketamine just for that reason. My doctor pulled my mom to the side and accused us of not telling him I heart a heart condition (which I have never had symptoms or any reason to question). After the infusion I started having more episodes of sinus tachycardia that got as high as 180 at one point and goes down when I lay down and higher when I stand. With these episodes I have shortness of breath and dizziness. One day I noticed my shortness of breath did not go away after my pulse went down as it normally did. ...
Central neurogenic hyperventilation (CNH) is an abnormal pattern of breathing characterized by deep and rapid breaths at a rate of at least 25 breaths per minute. Increasing irregularity of this respiratory rate generally is a sign that the patient will enter into coma. CNH is unrelated to other forms of hyperventilation, like Kussmauls respirations. CNH is the human bodys response to reduced carbon dioxide levels in the blood. This reduction in carbon dioxide is caused by contraction of cranial arteries from damage caused by lesions in the brain stem. However, the mechanism by which CNH arises as a result from these lesions is still very poorly understood. Current research has yet to provide an effective means of treatment for the rare number of patients who are diagnosed with this condition. Central neurogenic hyperventilation (CNH) is an extremely rare neurological disorder that was initially reported by Fred Plum, MD and August G. Swanson, MD, in 1959. Plum and Swanson described the ...

Symptoms may or may not be noticed until much later in life even in the late 50s throughout the 70s. The disease can easily progress very fast to making the individuals unable to do things for themselves. Symptoms can also vary from person to person and be much more severe in some instances for those who have a worse off condition. Symptoms usually progressively get worse over time and will eventually become difficult to live with when the damages it produces to the neurons makes it nearly impossible to do anything. The common symptoms that are usually noticed by those who are affected include:. Weakness - Weakness is one of the major problems that is experienced because they are unable to forcibly do something with their muscles even though their muscles are fine at first. The weakness can be very slight and can grow with time to not being able to move the muscles at all. This can lead to even more severe problems with time.. Muscle Atrophy - Muscle atrophy occurs from several reasons but it ...
About Rett Syndrome. Rett syndrome (RTT) is a devastating, rare neurological disorder characterized by slowed growth, loss of normal movement and coordination and loss of communication skills. RTT is caused by an X-linked dominant mutation in the methyl CpG binding protein 2 (MECP2) gene, which results in problems with the protein production critical for brain development. RTT occurs in approximately one of every 10,000 female births and usually begins to show signs and symptoms in infants between six and 18 months of age. Current treatments only offer symptomatic relief and do not target the genetic cause of the disease, leaving a significant unmet need.. About Genetic Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.

Krabbe disease is a rare neurological disorder caused by a deficiency in the lysosomal enzyme, β-galactocerebrosidase, resulting in demyelination of the central and peripheral nervous systems. If left without treatment, Krabbe disease results in progressive neurodegeneration with reduced quality of life and early death. The purpose of this prospective study was to describe the natural progression of early onset Krabbe disease in a large cohort of patients. Patients with early onset Krabbe disease were prospectively evaluated between 1999 and 2018. Data sources included diagnostic testing, parent questionnaires, standardized multidisciplinary neurodevelopmental assessments, and neuroradiological and neurophysiological tests. We evaluated 88 children with onset between 0 and 5 months. Median age of symptom onset was 4 months; median time to diagnosis after onset was 3 months. The most common initial symptoms were irritability, feeding difficulties, appendicular spasticity, and developmental delay. Other
My first encounter with Motor Neurone Disease was about twenty five years ago. My Uncle Basil was a big man, hed worked down the pit most of his life and had the build to show for it (the phrase youre looking for is built like a brick sh*thouse). As a kid I always thought he was a giant, and even as I grew up he was still a big man. Then he developed Motor Neurone Disease.. The rate at which he lost weight was frightening and he went downhill really quickly. It wasnt long before we lost him and the speed and aggression of Motor Neurone Disease is something Ive never forgotten so when a friend told me she was running a marathon to raise funds for MNDA (the Motor Neurone Disease Association) and needed some publicity photographs I jumped at the chance to help ...

... is a rare neurological disorder characterised by the inability to recognise faces. Prosopagnosia is also known as face blindness or facial agnosia. The term prosopagnosia comes from the Greek words for "face" and "lack of knowledge." Depending upon the degree of impairment, some people with prosopagnosia may only have difficulty recognising a familiar face; others will be unable to discriminate between unknown faces, while still others may not even be able to distinguish a face as being different from an object. Some people with the disorder are unable to recognise their own face. Prosopagnosia is not related to memory dysfunction, memory loss, impaired vision, or learning disabilities. Prosopagnosia is thought to be the result of abnormalities, damage, or impairment in the right fusiform gyrus, a fold in the brain that appears to coordinate the neural systems that control facial perception and memory. Prosopagnosia can result from stroke, traumatic brain injury, or certain ...
Send Cattle Prices Sliding By AARON LUCCHETTI Staff Reporter of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL Fears that the death of an Indiana man may be linked to "mad cow" disease sent grain and livestock futures tumbling Wednesday. The rout was triggered by a local newspaper report that 62-year-old Joseph Gabor of Schererville, Ind., a small town near Chicago, died of Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare neurological disorder. The disease is believed to be caused by the same agent that causes bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or mad-cow disease, although scientists havent proved that the agent, a distorted protein molecule known as a prion, can be transmitted from one species to another. A spokesman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta said it is unlikely that Mr. Gabors death was linked to mad-cow disease, since none of the 250 cases of Creutzfeldt-Jakob that occur in the U.S. yearly has been linked to mad-cow disease. Officials from both the Agriculture Department and the CDC said there ...

Researchers from Trinity College Dublin have conducted the largest ever study involving 1,117 people diagnosed with motor neurone disease to address the question of nature vs. nurture in the causes of MND. The team from the Trinity MND Research Group found that one in 347 men and one in 436 women can be expected to develop motor neurone disease (MND) during their lifetime. Their research has been published in the American medical journal JAMA Neurology.
A landmark discovery using stem-cell technology could lead to the first clinical trials of drugs to defeat motor neuron disease within "five to ten years", according to British-led research.. Motor neuron disease, known as MND, is incurable, debilitating, and usually fast-acting, killing most sufferers relatively soon after diagnosis. However, hopes of a treatment have risen in recent years as stem-cell science has provided the ability to model diseases in the laboratory.. Those hopes were being realised after "a long journey", said Siddharthan Chandran, a clinical neurologist at the University of Edinburgh. The latest discovery was, he said, "pretty exciting". He added: "If you are asking how long will it take for treatments that go to clinical trial, from a discovery like this, the time I…. ...

The incidence of motor neurone disease in the Northern Region was studied for the year 1981 by means of hospital activity analysis records and questionnaire. The crude incidence rate was 2.2 per 100,000. This was not significantly different from the rate determined by using death certification. The age standardised incidence ratio for the region was 163 using the 1976 population and deaths from motor neurone disease in England and Wales as the reference. The female to male ratio was 1:1.8 and the average age of diagnosis was 63 years. No meaningful intraregional variation was observed. Thus mortality appears to reflect incidence fairly accurately.. ...

Julian has signed the MND Charter which has received endorsements from leading medical institutions including the Royal College of General Practitioners, the Royal College of Nursing and the Association of British Neurologists. The national charter is designed to raise awareness and understanding of MND which kills five people ever day, with half of all sufferers dying within 14 months of diagnosis. There is no known cure.. MND is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles, which leads to weakness and wasting.. Julian said: "It is so important that people suffering from MND get an early diagnosis and information so that they can access the services and support they need to maximise their quality of life. "I am delighted to be able to ...
In 2003 the Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association, together with The Wellcome Trust, funded the creation of a national DNA Bank specific for MND. It was anticipated that the DNA Bank would constitute an important resource to researchers worldwide and significantly increase activity in MND genetic research. The DNA Bank houses over 3000 high quality DNA samples, all of which were donated by people living with MND, family members and non-related controls, accompanied by clinical phenotype data about the patients. Today the primary focus of the UK MND DNA Bank still remains to identify causative and disease modifying factors for this devastating disease ...

... (PSP), also known as the Steele-Richardson-Olszewski syndrome, is a degenerative disease which involves the gradual deterioration, and after some time, the death of specific volumes of the brain, affecting movement, control of walking (gait) and balance, swallowing, speech, mood and behavior, vision and thinking. This is the forum for discussing anything related to this health condition
Age related loss of muscle mass and function is a universal problem that affects everyone as we get older, beginning for many around the fourth decade of life. It contributes significantly to loss of independence, increased frailty and increasing health care costs. Our goal is to uncover key pathways involved in sarcopenia in the hope that we can provide new information that can be used to design effective interventions to delay or reduce muscle loss and weakness in the elderly. Studies in the Van Remmen laboratory aimed to uncover the underlying mechanisms of sarcopenia have been supported by a mouse model of increased oxidative stress caused by the lack of a key enzyme (CuZn-Superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD)), which is responsible for the removal of the superoxide anion radical that is formed during normal aerobic respiration. Unchecked, superoxide anion can damage cellular organelles and pathways and lead to a number of pathologies. Among these are neuronal abnormalities and the accelerated ...
I cant tell you how disappointed I am," says Eileen as she puts the phone down after 45 minutes. "I really thought the article meant there was a treatment at last." Eileen has motor neurone disease; a civil servant in her 40s, she cannot walk or make much use of her hands now, and her voice is badly affected. From long acquaintance with this shocking disease, I fear that she has only weeks to live.. Eileen has been in one of the drug trials of nerve growth factors from some months, and she read the Daily Telegraphs piece, "Motor neurone treatment hope" on 19 August, reporting a trial in the United States in which experimental mice were given two different factors, which seemed to slow down the disease. One of them is the drug she is taking. Tonight I explained that the mice do not have human motor neurone disease but a genetic disorder that mimics it. There will probably be a new round of trials before this cocktail can be used on people; neither factor is yet licensed for prescription. We ...

A new toxic entity associated with genetically inherited forms of dementia and motor neuron disease has been identified by scientists at the UCL Institute of Neurology. The toxin is the result of a genetic mutation that leads to the production of RNA molecules which could be responsible for the diseases. The findings are published in the journal Acta Neuropathologica.. Frontotemporal dementia and motor neuron disease are related neurodegenerative diseases that affect approximately 15,000 people in the UK. Frontotemporal dementia causes profound personality and behaviour changes. Motor neuron disease leads to muscle weakness and eventual paralysis.. The most common known cause for both frontotemporal dementia and motor neuron disease is an unusual genetic mutation in the C9orf72 gene. The mutation involves a small string of DNA letters at the beginning of the gene, which expand massively to produce thousands of copies.. The new research, funded by Alzheimers Research UK and the Medical Research ...

The investigators laboratory has been studying families with a history of ALS for more than 25 years and is continuing to use new ways to understand how genes may play a role in ALS, motor neuron disease and other neuromuscular disorders.. The purpose of this study is to identify additional genes that may cause or put a person at risk for either familial ALS (meaning 2 or more people in a family who have had ALS), sporadic ALS, or other forms of motor neuron disease in the hopes of improving diagnosis and treatment. As new genes are found that may be linked to ALS in families or individuals, the investigators can then further study how that gene may be contributing to the disease by studying it down to the protein and molecular level. This includes all forms of ALS, motor neuron disease and ALS with fronto-temporal dementia(ALS/FTD). We also continue to study other forms of neuromuscular disease such as Miyoshi myopathy, FSH dystrophy and other forms of muscular dystrophy by looking at the genes ...
Motor neuron disease is clinically characterized by progressive muscle wasting leading to total muscle paralysis. A long history of pathological study of patients has firmly established that the primary lesion site is in spinal and cortical motor neurons. In addition to the wide-spread loss of these neurons, neuronal abnormalities including massive accumulation of neurofilaments in cell bodies and proximal axons have been also widely observed, particularly in the early stages of the disease. To test whether high accumulation of neurofilaments directly contributes to the pathogenic process, transgenic mice that produce high levels of neurofilaments in motor neurons have been generated. These transgenic mice show most of the hallmarks observed in motor neuron disease, including swollen perikarya with eccentrically localized nuclei, proximal axonal swellings, axonal degeneration and severe skeletal muscle atrophy. These data indicate that extensive accumulation of neurofilaments in motor neurons ...
Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that is characterized by gaze palsy, bradykinesia, postural instability, and mild dementia. PSP is one of the most common parkinsonian disorders, second only to Parkinsons disease. Of primary concern to individuals with PSP are issues related to reduced mobility, particularly with regards to their increased frequency of falling backwards. Although medical treatment (predominantly pharmaceutical) has been found to be effective for improving some symptoms including slowness and rigidity, most of these interventions are only partially effective in maintaining and improving balance and gait. Mobility issues in PSP are, therefore, addressed primarily through fall prevention programs delivered by physical and occupational therapists. In this review article, we will provide an overview of the current literature that explores nonpharmacological methods for reducing fall risk among individuals living with PSP ...
