A rare, slowly progressive encephalitis caused by chronic infection with the MEASLES VIRUS. The condition occurs primarily in children and young adults, approximately 2-8 years after the initial infection. A gradual decline in intellectual abilities and behavioral alterations are followed by progressive MYOCLONUS; MUSCLE SPASTICITY; SEIZURES; DEMENTIA; autonomic dysfunction; and ATAXIA. DEATH usually occurs 1-3 years after disease onset. Pathologic features include perivascular cuffing, eosinophilic cytoplasmic inclusions, neurophagia, and fibrous gliosis. It is caused by the SSPE virus, which is a defective variant of MEASLES VIRUS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp767-8)

Two ganglionated neural plexuses in the gut wall which form one of the three major divisions of the autonomic nervous system. The enteric nervous system innervates the gastrointestinal tract, the pancreas, and the gallbladder. It contains sensory neurons, interneurons, and motor neurons. Thus the circuitry can autonomously sense the tension and the chemical environment in the gut and regulate blood vessel tone, motility, secretions, and fluid transport. The system is itself governed by the central nervous system and receives both parasympathetic and sympathetic innervation.

Retarded growth and deficits in the enteric and parasympathetic nervous system in mice lacking GFR alpha2, a functional neurturin receptor. (1/3079)

Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and a related protein, neurturin (NTN), require a GPI-linked coreceptor, either GFR alpha1 or GFR alpha2, for signaling via the transmembrane Ret tyrosine kinase. We show that mice lacking functional GFR alpha2 coreceptor (Gfra2-/-) are viable and fertile but have dry eyes and grow poorly after weaning, presumably due to malnutrition. While the sympathetic innervation appeared normal, the parasympathetic cholinergic innervation was almost absent in the lacrimal and salivary glands and severely reduced in the small bowel. Neurite outgrowth and trophic effects of NTN at low concentrations were lacking in Gfra2-/- trigeminal neurons in vitro, whereas responses to GDNF were similar between the genotypes. Thus, GFR alpha2 is a physiological NTN receptor, essential for the development of specific postganglionic parasympathetic neurons.  (+info)

Anti-amphiphysin I antibodies in patients with paraneoplastic neurological disorders associated with small cell lung carcinoma. (2/3079)

Patients with stiff man syndrome and breast cancer develop anti-amphiphysin I antibodies that primarily recognise the C terminus of the protein. Anti-amphiphysin I antibodies have also been identified in a few patients with paraneoplastic neurological disorders (PND) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC). The frequency of anti-amphiphysin I antibodies in patients with SCLC and PND was analysed and the epitope specificity of these antibodies was characterised. Anti-amphiphysin I antibodies were evaluated by immunohistochemistry on human and rat cerebellum and immunoblots of rat brain homogenates. Serum samples included 134 patients with PND and anti-Hu antibodies (83% had SCLC), 44 with SCLC and PND without anti-Hu-antibodies, 63 with PND and either Yo, Ri, or Tr antibodies, 146 with SCLC without PND, and 104 with non-PND. Positive serum samples were confirmed with immunoblots of recombinant human amphiphysin I and immunoreacted with five overlapping peptide fragments covering the full length of the molecule. Serum samples positive for anti-amphiphysin I antibodies included those from seven (2.9%) patients with PND and two (1.4%) with SCLC without PND. Six of the seven anti-amphiphysin I antibody positive patients with PND had SCLC (three with Hu-antibodies), and one had anti-Hu-antibodies but no detectable tumour. The PND included encephalomyelitis/sensory neuropathy (five patients), cerebellar degeneration (one), and opsoclonus (one). All anti-amphiphysin I antibodies reacted with the C terminus of amphiphysin I, but seven also recognised other fragments of the molecule. In conclusion, anti-amphiphysin I antibodies are present at low frequency in patients with SCLC irrespective of the presence of an associated PND. All anti-amphiphysin I antibody positive serum samples have in common reactivity with the C terminus of the protein.  (+info)

Phase II trial of paclitaxel and cisplatin in metastatic and recurrent carcinoma of the uterine cervix. (3/3079)

PURPOSE: Both paclitaxel and cisplatin have moderate activity in patients with metastatic or recurrent cancer of the cervix, and the combination of these two agents has shown activity and possible synergism in a variety of solid tumors. We administered this combination to patients with metastatic or recurrent cervical cancer to evaluate its activity. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Thirty-four consecutive patients were treated on an outpatient basis with paclitaxel 175 mg/m2 administered intravenously over a 3-hour period followed by cisplatin 75 mg/m2 administered intravenously with granulocyte colony-stimulating factor support. The chemotherapy was administered every 3 weeks for a maximum of six courses. RESULTS: Sixteen patients (47%; 95% confidence interval, 30% to 65%) achieved an objective response, including five complete responses and 11 partial responses. Responses occurred in 28% of patients with disease within the radiation field only and in 57% of patients with disease involving other sites. The median duration of response was 5.5 months, and the median times to progression and survival for all patients were 5 and 9 months, respectively. Grade 3 or 4 toxicities included anemia in 18% of patients and granulocytopenia in 15% of patients. Fifty-three percent of patients developed some degree of neurotoxicity; 21% of cases were grade 2 or worse. CONCLUSION: The combination of paclitaxel with cisplatin seems relatively well tolerated and moderately active in patients with metastatic or recurrent cervical cancer. The significant incidence of neurotoxicity is of concern, and alternative methods of administration of the two agents could be evaluated. Then, further study of this combination, alone or with the addition of other active agents, is warranted.  (+info)

Nitric oxide, mitochondria and neurological disease. (4/3079)

Damage to the mitochondrial electron transport chain has been suggested to be an important factor in the pathogenesis of a range of neurological disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. There is also a growing body of evidence to implicate excessive or inappropriate generation of nitric oxide (NO) in these disorders. It is now well documented that NO and its toxic metabolite, peroxynitrite (ONOO-), can inhibit components of the mitochondrial respiratory chain leading, if damage is severe enough, to a cellular energy deficiency state. Within the brain, the susceptibility of different brain cell types to NO and ONOO- exposure may be dependent on factors such as the intracellular reduced glutathione (GSH) concentration and an ability to increase glycolytic flux in the face of mitochondrial damage. Thus neurones, in contrast to astrocytes, appear particularly vulnerable to the action of these molecules. Following cytokine exposure, astrocytes can increase NO generation, due to de novo synthesis of the inducible form of nitric oxide synthase (NOS). Whilst the NO/ONOO- so formed may not affect astrocyte survival, these molecules may diffuse out to cause mitochondrial damage, and possibly cell death, to other cells, such as neurones, in close proximity. Evidence is now available to support this scenario for neurological disorders, such as multiple sclerosis. In other conditions, such as ischaemia, increased availability of glutamate may lead to an activation of a calcium-dependent nitric oxide synthase associated with neurones. Such increased/inappropriate NO formation may contribute to energy depletion and neuronal cell death. The evidence available for NO/ONOO--mediated mitochondrial damage in various neurological disorders is considered and potential therapeutic strategies are proposed.  (+info)

The effects of specific antibody fragments on the 'irreversible' neurotoxicity induced by Brown snake (Pseudonaja) venom. (5/3079)

Brown snake (Pseudonaja) venom has been reported to produce 'irreversible' post synaptic neurotoxicity (Harris & Maltin, 1981; Barnett et al., 1980). A murine phrenic nerve/diaphragm preparation was used to study the neurotoxic effects of this venom and pre- and post-synaptic components were distinguished by varying the temperature and frequency of nerve stimulation. There were no myotoxic effects and the neurotoxicity proved irreversible by washing alone. The effects of a new Fab based ovine antivenom have been investigated and proved able to produce a complete, rapid (< 1 h) reversal of the neurotoxicity induced by Brown snake venom. A reversal was also possible when the antivenom addition was delayed for a further 60 min. We believe that this is the first time such a reversal has been shown.  (+info)

Incidence of cranial ultrasound abnormalities in apparently well neonates on a postnatal ward: correlation with antenatal and perinatal factors and neurological status. (6/3079)

AIM: To evaluate cranial ultrasonography and neurological examination in a cohort of infants regarded as normal; and to determine the prevalence of ultrasound abnormalities and any potential association with antenatal or perinatal factors or deviant neurological signs. METHODS: Cranial ultrasound findings and neurological status were evaluated in 177 newborns (gestational age 36.3 to 42 weeks), admitted to a postnatal ward directly after birth and regarded as normal by obstetric and paediatric staff. The age of the infants at the time of examination ranged between 6 and 48 hours. Ultrasound abnormalities were present in 35 of the 177 infants studied (20%). Ischaemic lesions, such as periventricular and thalamic densities were the most common finding (8%), followed by haemorrhagic lesions (6%). The possible sequelae of antenatal haemorrhages, such as focal ventricular dilatation or choroid cysts, were present in 6%. Abnormal ultrasound findings were not significantly associated with signs of perinatal distress, such as cardiotocographic abnormalities or passage of meconium. Abnormal ultrasound findings tended to be associated with antenatal problems, although this did not reach significance. Ultrasound abnormalities were strongly associated with deviant patterns on the neurological examination. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that ultrasound abnormalities are more common than has been reported up to now. Lesions that could be ischaemic, such as flare densities, are seen even in the absence of any antenatal or perinatal risk factor.  (+info)

Neurology and the skin. (7/3079)

As knowledge of pathophysiology grows, so does the refinement of diagnoses. Sometimes increased knowledge permits consolidation and unification. Unfortunately, at our present level of understanding, it usually demands proliferation of diagnostic categories. As tedious as this diagnostic splintering may seem, such is the price currently exacted of both the investigator and the clinician who seek to optimise management. Increased diagnostic refinement often requires inquiry into matters outside the bounds of one's specialty. Most often we turn to the radiologist or to the laboratory to narrow the differential diagnosis generated from the history and neurological examination. As we have shown, a useful intermediate step is extension of the physical examination to organs such as the skin, which are not the traditional preserve of the neurologist. That any text could confer the sophistication required for expert dermatological diagnosis is an unrealistic expectation. However, we hope that this review will encourage careful examination of the skin, hair, and nails by the neurological practitioner, with consideration of referral to a dermatologist when greater expertise is required.  (+info)

Assessing the machinery of mind: synapses in neuropsychiatric disorders. (8/3079)

Neural connectivity in postmortem human brain can now be studied with the use of antibodies that react with synapse-enriched proteins. Using a range of antibody-based techniques, the authors observed abnormalities in connectivity in Alzheimer's disease, temporal lobe epilepsy, and schizophrenia. They also found disease-related differences in the individual protein markers affected and in the anatomical distribution of differences from controls. Molecular and cellular abnormalities in neural connectivity may underlie functional abnormalities observed in vivo using positron emission tomography or functional magnetic resonance imaging.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - The role of biomechanics in orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation. AU - Kulig, Kornelia. AU - Burnfield, Judith M.. PY - 2008/12/15. Y1 - 2008/12/15. N2 - Movement is fundamental to human well-being, function and participation in work and leisure activities. As a result, regaining optimal movement abilities and independence frequently become central foci of rehabilitation programs developed for individuals recovering from serious orthopedic and neurologic injuries. Further, preventing additional injury to the locomotor system becomes essential for effective long-term management of chronic medical conditions such as tendon dysfunction and diabetes. The primary aim of this perspective is to illustrate the role of biomechanics in orthopedics, musculoskeletal and neurological rehabilitation. Specifically, this paper discusses selected examples, ranging from the tissue to whole body biomechanics level, that highlight how scientific evidence from the theoretical and applied ...
Both the central and peripheral nervous systems (CNS and PNS) are affected by HIV; however, the causes of neurotoxicity in HIV infected patients are unknown. Initial data indicate that as many as 40% of patients with HIV develop some form of dementia. Other common neurological problems observed in HIV patients are peripheral neuropathy and opportunistic infections of the CNS. Most antiretroviral drugs used in the treatment of HIV have poor penetration into the CNS, which may explain how HIV persists in the CNS and contributes to the prevalence of dementia and other neurological disorders in HIV infected patients. This study will examine the prevalence of dementia and other neurological disorders in participants in ACTG A5175, Once-Daily PI/NNRTI Therapy Combinations for Treatment Naive, HIV Infected Patients in Resource-limited Conditions..

Possibilities of recovery for stroke, spinal cord injury, and other neurological disorders can be a true reality.. However, traditional recovery is not always the answer. Why? Because it tends to overlook many muscle groups.. Traditional recovery usually teaches a person to live with new limitations. It teaches them to accept the confines of their neurological disability.. That is not the solution. It can even lead to a life of muscle atrophy and debilitation.

IgA was assayed by particle counting immunoassay in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from non-neurological and neurological patients. Reference values had a logarithmic normal distribution with a mean of 1.54 mg/l and an upper limit of 5 mg/l. To estimate the possible intra-blood-brain barrier (BBB) production of IgA we have calculated an IgA index: CSF-IgA/serum-IgA: CSF-albumin/serum-albumin. Values higher than the upper reference limit of 0.41 were found in 12 out of 67 patients with multiple sclerosis (18%), in 5 out of 11 with aseptic meningitis, in 7 out of 8 with herpetic encephalitis, in 1 out of 8 with Guillain-Barré syndrome and in 2 cases of tuberculous meningitis. However, this index does not take into account the relative proportions of monomeric and polymeric IgA in CSF and serum. We therefore ultracentrifuged 17 paired CSF and serum samples and determined the relative proportions of monomeric and dimeric IgA and calculated the indices for monomeric and dimeric IgA. In controls the ...

BACKGROUND: There is an absence of population-based long-term studies on the risk of neurological sequelae in children born after in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). Our aim was to compare the frequency of such problems between IVF-born children and controls. METHODS: We did a population-based retrospective cohort study in which we compared development of neurological problems in 5680 children born after IVF, with 11360 matched controls. For 2060 twins born after IVF, a second set of controls (n=4120), all twins, were selected. We obtained data on neurological problems from the records of the Swedish habilitation centres. FINDINGS: Children born after IVF are more likely to need habilitation services than controls (odds ratio 1.7, 95% CI 1.3-2.2). For singletons, the risk was 1.4 (1.0-2.1). The most common neurological diagnosis was cerebral palsy, for which children born after IVF had an increased risk of 3.7(2.0-6.6), and IVF singletons of 2.8 (1.3-5.8). Suspected developmental delay was increased ...

Children with neurologic impairment, such as cerebral palsy or trisomy 21, often have complex health care needs and account for a large proportion of pediatric health care costs.1 These children are at increased risk of feeding problems owing to self-feeding impairment and oromotor dysfunction, often necessitating a reliance on gastrostomy (G) or gastrojejunostomy (GJ) tube feeding.2,3 Parent descriptions of child experiences include needing assistance with feeding (89%), choking with food (56%), vomiting (22%), aspiration pneumonia (31%), and prolonged feeding time (28%).2 Parents of many of these children also describe feeding as being a stressful and unenjoyable experience. Up to one-half of this population is significantly undernourished with resulting growth failure.4. Although permanent feeding tubes, such as G-/GJ-tubes, have been shown to improve weight gain among children with neurologic impairment, there is a degree of uncertainty regarding their impact on a variety of other outcomes. ...

We have a particular client who had a stroke about a year and a half ago. When he first started at the clinic with us, he was unable to verbalize much of anything (sounds only, no true words) and was on thickened liquids due to severe difficulty swallowing (dysphagia). After aggressive treatment to address speech and swallowing, he is now speaking at the phrase/sentence level, communicates much better with his wife and family, and is on a regular diet with no swallowing difficulties. He now attends therapy less aggressively (every 1-2 weeks for maintenance treatment) and even still continues to improve with more stimulation.. ...

The work of Professor Francis Barr and colleagues, in collaboration with Drs Irene Aligianis and Mark Handley in Edinburgh, is published in the Journal of Cell Biology (1).. It provides insight into how defects in the construction of the endoplasmic reticulum, the convoluted membrane structure in all eukaryotic cells, may underlie a spectrum of human neurological disorders.. Warburg Micro syndrome (WMS) is a disorder in which children suffer from multiple specific developmental abnormalities in brain and eye development, profound global developmental delay and neurodegeneration. The genetic defect has been mapped to multiple genes - Rab18, a regulator of membrane traffic, and both subunits of a Rab regulatory complex known as Rab3GAP.. Because of the profound neurological defects in Warburg Micro syndrome, researchers have focused on a possible role for these genes in neurotransmission. But a link has remained elusive despite a number of studies.. A look at the conservation of Rab18 provides a ...

On October 14th 2015 the first part of a patient study in which many RLS patients in Europe participated was presented in the European Parliament. The first part of the study, analysed by Professor Matilde Leonardi from Milan, Italy, was about Stigma and neurological illness, the patient experience.. A total of 4847 patients took part in the study from a variety of illnesses: headache/migraine, MS, ME, epilepsy, poliomyelitis, ataxia, Huntington disease, and others. Out of the total number of questionnaires, no less than 1368 (28.2%!!) were from RLS patients. Once again a clear indication that RLS patients have a story to tell.. 57% of all patients felt that they had experienced stigma at one stage or another, at work, socially, and generally speaking. Four diseases were dominant in this respect: RLS, MS, ME and headache.. Having these data presented in the European Parliament, with many members of the Parliament as well as people from science and industry, present, was important for RLS ...
By Sarah Wilkinson Bsc (Hons) Physiotherapy, MCSP, HCPC. In this article I want to discuss the use of virtual reality therapy in neurological rehabilitation and how it can benefit the neurologically impaired patient.. Virtual reality therapy is a reasonably new approach to treatment in neurological rehabilitation. It involves simulation of real life activities in order to work on independence in day to day tasks and help improve quality of life.. The main aim of neurological rehabilitation is to maximise the effects of neuroplasticity and functional reorganisation in order to influence recovery in the neurologically impaired person. Neuroplasticity is the brains ability to reorganise itself forming new neural connections between intact neurones so that these areas can help take over the function of the damaged neurones/areas. In order to develop these connections, specific targeted therapy with repetitive training in order to engage the brain and its recovery is needed.. There are 2 main ...
Results Seventy six patients with APS were included: 11 patients with primary APS and 65 patients with secondary APS, with mean disease duration of 9.59±7.39years. Overall,35 patients (46.1%) had neurologic manifestations. Their mean disease duration was 9.2±5.76 years. Seven patients had primary APS and 28 patients had secondary APS. Six patients were on chronic oral anticoagulant therapy and low dose aspirin, 12 patients on oral anticoagulant alone and 15 patients on low dose aspirin. Transient ischemic attack was the first manifestation of APS in 4 patients (11.42%) at mean age of 29.5±10.96 years. Their mean DIAPS value was 7.75±4.19. Ischemic stroke was the first APS manifestation in 12 patients (34.28%) at mean age of 40.08±16.31years, with DIAPS mean value of 7.41±3.67. All of these patients have neurological sequelaes. The DIAPS value was higher in patients with neurologic manifestations (3±2.9 vs 5.71±3.62, p=0.001) and DIAPS value correlated significantly to neurologic ...
Neurological manifestations of HIV infection are frequent and diverse. Diagnosis is often difficult due to geographical factors. 686 of the 3409 patients admitted to the Internal Medicine ward of Bobo-Dioulasso in 1995-1996 were HIV seropositive. This represents a prevalence of 20.1%. The sociodemographic and clinical characteristics of 101 patients with neurological problems during the study period are reported in this paper. This case series represents 14% of the HIV-positive admissions. The mean age was 35.7 years and 43% of the cases were aged 30 to 40 years. Sex-ratio was 1.6 male for 1 female. Focal deficits were observed in 36 of cases. Peripheral neuropathy (37%), meningitis or meningoencephalitis (20%), fitting (8%) and myelitis (8%) were the other clinical presentations. The etiology of the focal deficits was not ascertained because of the lack of tomodensitometry, specific serology and necropsy. Any neurological manifestation in a HIV seropositive patient should prompt investigations in order

Neuropsychological Rehabilitation from the Author: Chad A. Noggle, PhD, ABN. Neuropsychological Rehabilitation provides useful introductory material and backgroundinformation on various disorders, assessments, and rehabilitative interventions for adult andgeriatric populations...This book is essential for psychologists or clinical neuropsychologists who have a stronginterest in understanding the current medical aspects of neuropsychological rehabilitation.--PsycCRITIQUES This volume disseminates knowledge about the most advanced practices and techniques in the rehabilitation of neuropsychological deficits, covering both specific neuropsychological domains and approaches in neurorehabilitation. It adheres to the philosophy that it is not enough to identify a deficit or diagnose a disease unless doing so helps to direct rehabilitation efforts to improve function. Intended to advance clinical skills, the book goes beyond surface diagnostic practice to foster rehabilitative efforts in response to ...
To delineate the spectrum of neurologic manifestations and the relative frequencies of different syndromes associated with North American Lyme disease, we describe 96 children referred for neurologic problems in the setting of Borrelia burgdorferi infection. The most frequent neurologic symptom was headache, and the most common sign was facial palsy. Less common manifestations were sleep disturbance, and papilledema associated with increased intracranial pressure. Signs and symptoms of peripheral nervous system involvement were infrequent. The most common clinical syndromes were mild encephalopathy, lymphocytic meningitis, and cranial neuropathy (facial nerve palsy). In contrast with adult patients with neurologic Lyme disease, meningoradiculitis (Bannwarths syndrome) and peripheral neuropathy syndromes were rare. However, a pseudotumor cerebri-like syndrome seems to be unique to North American pediatric Lyme disease.. ...
Neurological manifestations of HIV/AIDS is reviewed and discussed. It is noted that neurological manifestations are some of the commonest modes of clinical presentation of HIV/AIDS. At autopsy, the prevalence approaches 100%. These manifestations include: involvement of the higher functions, craniopathies, spinal cord disease, peripheral neuropathy and muscle disease. It is therefore stressed that the central nervous system must be particularly assessed in patients with HIV/AIDS and where the clinician is not sure of the neurological diagnosis, a referral to the neurologist is recommended as some of these are treatable ...

Complications of bacterial meningitis might need extra treatment. Someone with shock or low blood pressure might get more IV fluids and medicines to increase blood pressure. Some kids may need extra oxygen or mechanical ventilation if they have trouble breathing.. Bacterial meningitis complications can be severe and include neurological problems, such as hearing loss, vision problems, seizures, and learning disabilities. Because impaired hearing is a common complication, those whove had bacterial meningitis should have a hearing test after they recover.. The heart, kidneys, and adrenal glands also might be affected, depending on the cause of the infection. Although some kids develop long-lasting neurological problems, most who get a quick diagnosis and treatment recover fully.. ...
People who are exposed to paint, glue or degreaser fumes at work may experience memory and thinking problems in retirement, decades after their exposure, according to a study published in the May 13, 2014, print issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.. Our findings are particularly important because exposure to solvents is very common, even in industrialized countries like the United States. said study author Erika L. Sabbath, ScD, of Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. Solvents pose a real risk to the present and future cognitive health of workers, and as retirement ages go up, the length of time that people are exposed is going up, too.. The study involved 2,143 retirees from the French national utility company. Researchers assessed the workers lifetime exposure to chlorinated solvents, petroleum solvents, and benzene, including the timing of last exposure and lifetime dosage. Benzene is used to make plastics, rubber, dye, detergents and ...

Your symptoms are the closest that Ive read to my own. Ive had something similar and very severe for three years now with little progress in comming up with a reasonable treatment. It took me a year before I could even begin to get out of the house again because of fatigue. When this first happened I didnt even have the mental focus to read a sentence without breaking down. From eye to brain there was no energy to carry it through without almost causeing me to fall out. I also had this constant tension in my head and neck. I thought I had multiple sclerosis and have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and another condition. Antibiotics have suprisingly helped on certain occassions when taking them for normal reasons such as influenza. Ive noticed this three times over the last three years but symptoms soon return again... like within a few days. I think the antibiotics may have supressed the ammune system a little which may be over active. The only thing that gave me almost complete ...
Several mutations in the ACY1 gene have been identified in people with a condition called aminoacylase 1 deficiency. This condition is characterized by delayed development of mental and motor skills and other neurological problems, although some people with the condition have no signs or symptoms. Most of the associated ACY1 gene mutations change single amino acids in the aminoacylase 1 enzyme. These and other ACY1 gene mutations lead to production of an aminoacylase 1 enzyme with little or no function. Without this enzymes function, acetyl groups are not efficiently removed from a subset of amino acids (including methionine, glutamic acid, alanine, serine, glycine, leucine, valine, threonine, and isoleucine) during the breakdown of proteins. The excess N-acetylated amino acids are released from the body in urine. It is not known how a reduction of aminoacylase 1 function leads to neurological problems in people with aminoacylase 1 deficiency. ...

Being in pain sucks. It seems once something starts breaking down in the bodys system, it can lead to a series of breakdowns. I know car mechanics have changed but it used to be on a ten year old car, once you change the alternator then the starter would go.. I had worrisome neurological problems in 2014 until I got scabies. Alright, that sounds really, really weird. Here I am admitting to a pretty awful nightmare. But it only gets worse. It wasnt the first time for me. You see, I was a missionary in India for a dozen years and I had been victimized by these bone breaking little beasts in the late 80s. Once I got properly diagnosed by an Algerian doctor of dermatology who was in a wheel chair due to meningitis, the neurological problems went away. Weird. How did I get these vermin?

Traumatic Brain Injury: According to the CDC, the leading causes of traumatic brain injury are falls (35.2%), unknown/other (21%), motor vehicle accidents (17.3%), head strikes (16.5%), and assault (10%). Traumatic brain injury is a leading cause of disability in children and adolescents, and the two age groups at greatest risk are 0 to 4 years and 15 to 19 years. Among children aged 0 to 14 years, traumatic brain injury results each year in an estimated 2,685 deaths, 37,000 hospitalizations, and 435,000 emergency department visits.. Multiple Sclerosis: Some 350,000 to 500,000 individuals suffer from multiple sclerosis. Most cases are diagnosed in persons aged 20 to 50 years.. Spinal Cord Injury: The annual incidence of spinal cord injury-not including persons who die at an accident scene-is 12,000 new cases. The number of patients living with spinal cord injury is estimated to range from 238,000 to 332,000.. Stroke: Stroke is the nations fourth leading killer and a leading cause of long-term ...

Parkinsons disease is a well known neurological condition in which Dr. Bruno Gallo has a great deal of experience with. Dr. Gallo specializes in Parkinsons disease along with other neurological disorders and procedures such as Deep Brain Stimulation, Essential Tremor, Dystonia, and Epilepsy. Parkinsons disease occurs when the nerve cells or neurons in an area of the brain (substantia nigra) become impaired or die. Substantia nigra is known to be involved in producing body movements by making an important brain chemical known as dopamine. Less dopamine is produced as the neurons and nerve cells in this area start dying. This meagreness of dopamine causes movement problems in people suffering with Parkinsons disease.. Dopamine is a chemical neurotransmitter that is believed to transmit nerve signals from substantia nigra to different parts of the brain. Coupling of substantia nigra and corpus striatum, another area in the brain, is necessary in producing smooth bodily movements. Loss and ...

Many people infected with the virus will not have symptoms, or will only have mild ones - a fever, rash and muscle or joint aches.. But Zika infections in pregnant women have been shown to cause microcephaly - a severe birth defect in which the head and brain are undersized - as well as other brain abnormalities.. The connection between Zika and microcephaly first came to light last autumn in Brazil, which has since confirmed more than 1,800 cases of microcephaly.. In adults, Zika infections have also been linked to a rare neurological syndrome known as Guillain-Barre, as well as other neurological disorders.. The virus has spread to more than 50 countries in the past year.. Sexual transmission of Zika had also been reported in 11 countries by August, mainly through vaginal intercourse. There was a first documented case of a man catching the virus through anal sex in February 2016 and a suspicion of Zika transmission through oral sex in April.. ...
Since the first mutations of the neuronal sodium channel SCN1A were identified 5 years ago, more than 150 mutations have been described in patients with epilepsy. Many are sporadic mutations and cause loss of function, which demonstrates haploinsufficiency of SCN1A. Mutations resulting in persistent sodium current are also common. Coding variants of SCN2A, SCN8A, and SCN9A have also been identified in patients with seizures, ataxia, and sensitivity to pain, respectively. The rapid pace of discoveries suggests that sodium channel mutations are significant factors in the etiology of neurological disease and may contribute to psychiatric disorders as well.. ...

The retina is an extension of the central nervous system that has been shown to share the pathological manifestations of a number of neurological disorders, including Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons and multiple sclerosis. Moreover, patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a disease of the central retina, have been shown to have non vision-related cognitive decline. Furthermore, a number of physiological processes that are affected in neuro-degenerative diseases are also impacted in retinal degenerative diseases. To cite a few examples, perturbation in phagocytic clearance, iron metabolism, polarized fluid transport and blood-tissue barrier function are all major cellular characteristics of degenerative diseases of both the retina and the brain. Therefore studying mechanisms of specific retinal degenerative diseases also has significant relevance for understanding other neurological disorders ...
After long controversy, it is now recognized that essentially all neurodegenerative diseases have inflammatory components [1]. Many other neurological disorders are exacerbated by inflammation, including the progressive impairment following stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI). It has been known that levels of circulating cell-derived microparticles (MP) are generally increased in inflammatory states, making them useful as biomarkers. More recently, certain species of MP or exo- somes have been implicated as causative agents in neuroinflammation, to be reviewed.. L.L. Horstman, BS • W. Jy, PhD (*) • Y.S. Ahn, MD.

Jared D. Hoffman, PhD. Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the primary bioactive cannabinoids in the Cannabis sativaplant that has gained substantial interest in the lay press and scientific literature for its therapeutic potential. While the scientific literature on CBD is in the early stages in a variety of disease states, some benefits have been found in individuals with seizure disorders. Specifically, these studies were conducted in patients with Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome, two types of epilepsy.1Other research is being conducted in anxiety and other neurological disorders such as schizophrenia. Despite benefits being found in these disease states, there has yet to be conclusive evidence on the exact mechanisms of CBD. One reason for this is the number of bioactive compounds in the Cannabis plant that interact with one another. It is only more recently that CBD itself has become a focal point, but more research needs to be conducted to tease out all of its effects. This guide will ...
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the temporal stability of neurological abnormalities in first-episode schizophrenic patients, and to clarify the relationships between such abnormalities and psychopathology. METHOD A total of 18 schizophrenic patients, 11 non-schizophrenic patients and 10 healthy volunteers were examined neurologically at first admission and 5 years later. RESULTS A significant increase in the number of neurological abnormalities was seen in schizophrenic patients with genetic predisposition and in patients with a non-remitting course of disease. Birth complications had an impact on the occurrence of neurological abnormalities at first admission. CONCLUSION The association between a deteriorating course of disease and neurological impairment supports the theory that any possible impairment of the brain in schizophrenia is aggravated during the first 5 years of disease.
The pioneering research, conducted by Noël C Derecki and colleagues in Kipnis lab, suggests that bone marrow transplantation may offer a potential treatment for humans with Rett syndrome, which is typically deadly in boys and debilitating in girls.. The findings connect the immune system to Rett in a major - and previously unexpected - manner. The implications may reach even beyond Rett: Everything we found in the mouse models for Rett may have implications for other neurological disorders which may or may not be on the autistic spectrum, Kipnis says.. We are taking a very unconventional approach to a brain disease by targeting the immune system instead, Derecki says. I joined the Kipnis lab precisely for this reason - conventional approaches to many diseases have simply failed. We try things all the time that other labs would reject out of hand as too radical or crazy. We enjoy pushing the envelope.. About Rett Syndrome. Rett syndrome is predominantly caused by the mutation of an ...
Photo description: Poster from the Home Office giving advice about designing for users on the autistic spectrum. The benefits of inclusive design go way beyond helping people with autism or other impairments. Accessibility used to be seen as a bolt-on and the danger with that was that it could easily be knocked off. By focusing on inclusive design, organisations will be making the experience better for everyone.. People using mobile phones out and about have very similarities to people with disabilities. So, accessibility is no longer for people with disabilities with a capital D because if you have a small sheet of glass on a bright sunny day you need colour contrast, in the same way as someone with autism or impairment needs, said Robin.. Over 700,000, or 1 in 100 people, are on the autism spectrum in the UK. The number of people being diagnosed with autism or other neurological disorders is increasing. So are the number of people temporally disabled or impaired by their new mobile ...
Age, in particular old age (, 50 years of age), is a poor prognostic factor for MS and for most other neurological disorders. The aged brain does not deal with insults very well. Why? Age chews up brain and cognitive reserve and hence the capacity for the brain to recover from attacks is limited. I am convinced that a large part of the treatment response in DMT trials is driven by recovery of function, which may explain why in almost all studies the older you are the less effective the DMT. This is particularly evident in progressive MS trials, for example in the rituximab, ocrelizumab and siponimod trials. The implications of this is that when one these drugs get to market will NICE, and other payers, dare look at the cost-effectiveness of these treatments in older pwMS and decide that it is simply not worth paying for DMTs if you are above a certain age. ...
In a previous proteomics study using pooled cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples, we proposed apolipoprotein AI, apolipoprotein AIV, vitronectin, plasminogen, semaphorin 7A, and ala-β-his-dipeptidase as candidate biomarkers associated with the conversion to clinically definite multiple sclerosis (CDMS) in patients with clinically isolated syndromes (CIS). Here, we aimed to validate these results in individual CSF samples using alternative techniques. In a first replication study, levels of apolipoproteins AI and AIV, vitronectin, and plasminogen were measured by ELISA in CSF and serum of 56 CIS patients (29 patients who converted to CDMS (MS converters) and 27 patients who remained with CIS during follow-up (MS non-converters)) and 26 controls with other neurological disorders. Semaphorin 7A and ala-β-his-dipeptidase levels were determined by selected reaction monitoring (SRM) in CSF of 36 patients (18 MS converters, 18 non-converters) and 20 controls. In a second replication study, apolipoprotein AI
The Committee was briefed on the implementation of the Temporary Recommendations issued by the Director-General on advice from the four previous EC meetings. The Committee was updated on the latest developments on Zika virus geographic spread, natural history, epidemiology, microcephaly and other neonatal complications associated with Zika virus, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and current knowledge on sexual transmission of Zika virus.. The following States Parties provided information on microcephaly, GBS and other neurological disorders occurring in the presence of Zika virus transmission as well as control measures being implemented: Brazil, Thailand, and the United States of America.. The Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) declared by the Director-General of WHO has led the world to an urgent and coordinated response, providing the understanding that Zika virus infection and associated consequences represent a highly significant long-term problem that must be managed by ...
Remote Drugs. Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St Louis have developed a new device which is the width of a human hair and can be implanted in the brain to deliver drugs upon being triggered by a remote control. A study published in the journal Cell states that the device has been successfully implanted in mice. This in a way paves the way for the future to treat pain, depression, epilepsy and other neurological disorders in humans by targeting specific location in brain circuits. The technique can effectively deliver therapies that are more targeted with lesser side effects. It is much more flexible than previous attempts wherein drug delivery required experimental animals to be tethered to pumps and tubes that restricted their movement. Another advantage is that the technique may offer scientists a close look at the workings of the brain.. Scientists in this case used infrared technology which makes a TV remote work. This in turn will enable them to influence an ...
Does the mirror neuron theory of self make other predictions? Given our discovery that autistic children have deficient mirror neurons and correspondingly deficient TOM, we would predict that they would have a deficient sense of self (TMM) and difficulty with introspection. The same might be true for other neurological disorders; damage to the inferior parietal lobule/TPO junction (which are known to contain mirror neurons) and parts of the frontal lobes should also lead to a deficiency of certain aspects self awareness. (Incidentally, Gallups mirror test removing a paint splotch from your face while looking at a mirror is not an adequate test of self awareness, even though it is touted as such. We have seen patients who vehemently claim that their reflection in the mirror is someone else yet they pass the Gallup test!) It has recently been shown that if a conscious awake human patient has his parietal lobe stimulated during neurosurgery, he will sometimes have an out of body experience as ...
