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)
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.
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.
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)
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.
A common condition characterized by transient partial or total paralysis of skeletal muscles and areflexia that occurs upon awakening from sleep or less often while falling asleep. Stimuli such as touch or sound may terminate the episode, which usually has a duration of seconds to minutes. This condition may occur in normal subjects or be associated with NARCOLEPSY; CATAPLEXY; and hypnagogic HALLUCINATIONS. The pathophysiology of this condition is closely related to the normal hypotonia that occur during REM sleep. (From Adv Neurol 1995;67:245-271)
Paralysis caused by a neurotropic toxin secreted by the salivary glands of ticks.
An autosomal dominant familial disorder which presents in infancy or childhood and is characterized by episodes of weakness associated with hyperkalemia. During attacks, muscles of the lower extremities are initially affected, followed by the lower trunk and arms. Episodes last from 15-60 minutes and typically occur after a period of rest following exercise. A defect in skeletal muscle sodium channels has been identified as the cause of this condition. Normokalemic periodic paralysis is a closely related disorder marked by a lack of alterations in potassium levels during attacks of weakness. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1481)
A diminution of the skeletal muscle tone marked by a diminished resistance to passive stretching.
Abnormally low potassium concentration in the blood. It may result from potassium loss by renal secretion or by the gastrointestinal route, as by vomiting or diarrhea. It may be manifested clinically by neuromuscular disorders ranging from weakness to paralysis, by electrocardiographic abnormalities (depression of the T wave and elevation of the U wave), by renal disease, and by gastrointestinal disorders. (Dorland, 27th ed)
An acute infectious disease of humans, particularly children, caused by any of three serotypes of human poliovirus (POLIOVIRUS). Usually the infection is limited to the gastrointestinal tract and nasopharynx, and is often asymptomatic. The central nervous system, primarily the spinal cord, may be affected, leading to rapidly progressive paralysis, coarse FASCICULATION and hyporeflexia. Motor neurons are primarily affected. Encephalitis may also occur. The virus replicates in the nervous system, and may cause significant neuronal loss, most notably in the spinal cord. A rare related condition, nonpoliovirus poliomyelitis, may result from infections with nonpoliovirus enteroviruses. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp764-5)
A hypermetabolic syndrome caused by excess THYROID HORMONES which may come from endogenous or exogenous sources.

Abnormally high potassium concentration in the blood, most often due to defective renal excretion. It is characterized clinically by electrocardiographic abnormalities (elevated T waves and depressed P waves, and eventually by atrial asystole). In severe cases, weakness and flaccid paralysis may occur. (Dorland, 27th ed)
A syndrome characterized by the acute onset of unilateral FACIAL PARALYSIS which progresses over a 2-5 day period. Weakness of the orbicularis oculi muscle and resulting incomplete eye closure may be associated with corneal injury. Pain behind the ear often precedes the onset of paralysis. This condition may be associated with HERPESVIRUS 1, HUMAN infection of the facial nerve. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1376)

Clinical manifestations include facial muscle weakness, loss of taste from the anterior tongue, hyperacusis, and decreased lacrimation.
Drugs that interrupt transmission of nerve impulses at the skeletal neuromuscular junction. They can be of two types, competitive, stabilizing blockers (NEUROMUSCULAR NONDEPOLARIZING AGENTS) or noncompetitive, depolarizing agents (NEUROMUSCULAR DEPOLARIZING AGENTS). Both prevent acetylcholine from triggering the muscle contraction and they are used as anesthesia adjuvants, as relaxants during electroshock, in convulsive states, etc.
Severe or complete loss of motor function in all four limbs which may result from BRAIN DISEASES; SPINAL CORD DISEASES; PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES; NEUROMUSCULAR DISEASES; or rarely MUSCULAR DISEASES. The locked-in syndrome is characterized by quadriplegia in combination with cranial muscle paralysis. Consciousness is spared and the only retained voluntary motor activity may be limited eye movements. This condition is usually caused by a lesion in the upper BRAIN STEM which injures the descending cortico-spinal and cortico-bulbar tracts.
Branches of the vagus (tenth cranial) nerve. The recurrent laryngeal nerves originate more caudally than the superior laryngeal nerves and follow different paths on the right and left sides. They carry efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid and carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.

Vaccines with both inactivated and live attenuated virus have proven effective in immunizing against the infection.
A live vaccine containing attenuated poliovirus, types I, II, and III, grown in monkey kidney cell tissue culture, used for routine immunization of children against polio. This vaccine induces long-lasting intestinal and humoral immunity. Killed vaccine induces only humoral immunity.

The musculofibrous partition that separates the THORACIC CAVITY from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY. Contraction of the diaphragm increases the volume of the thoracic cavity aiding INHALATION.
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.
A form of inherited long QT syndrome (or LQT7) that is characterized by a triad of potassium-sensitive periodic paralysis, VENTRICULAR ECTOPIC BEATS, and abnormal features such as short stature, low-set ears, and SCOLIOSIS. It results from mutations of KCNJ2 gene which encodes a channel protein (INWARD RECTIFIER POTASSIUM CHANNELS) that regulates resting membrane potential.

The intentional interruption of transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION by external agents, usually neuromuscular blocking agents. It is distinguished from NERVE BLOCK in which nerve conduction (NEURAL CONDUCTION) is interrupted rather than neuromuscular transmission. Neuromuscular blockade is commonly used to produce MUSCLE RELAXATION as an adjunct to anesthesia during surgery and other medical procedures. It is also often used as an experimental manipulation in basic research. It is not strictly speaking anesthesia but is grouped here with anesthetic techniques. The failure of neuromuscular transmission as a result of pathological processes is not included here.
A pair of cone-shaped elastic mucous membrane projecting from the laryngeal wall and forming a narrow slit between them. Each contains a thickened free edge (vocal ligament) extending from the THYROID CARTILAGE to the ARYTENOID CARTILAGE, and a VOCAL MUSCLE that shortens or relaxes the vocal cord to control sound production.
The 7th cranial nerve. The facial nerve has two parts, the larger motor root which may be called the facial nerve proper, and the smaller intermediate or sensory root. Together they provide efferent innervation to the muscles of facial expression and to the lacrimal and SALIVARY GLANDS, and convey afferent information for TASTE from the anterior two-thirds of the TONGUE and for TOUCH from the EXTERNAL EAR.
A disease caused by potent protein NEUROTOXINS produced by CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM which interfere with the presynaptic release of ACETYLCHOLINE at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION.

Traumatic injuries to the facial nerve. This may result in FACIAL PARALYSIS, decreased lacrimation and salivation, and loss of taste sensation in the anterior tongue. The nerve may regenerate and reform its original pattern of innervation, or regenerate aberrantly, resulting in inappropriate lacrimation in response to gustatory stimuli (e.g., "crocodile tears") and other syndromes.
Diseases of the twelfth cranial (hypoglossal) nerve or nuclei. The nuclei and fascicles of the nerve are located in the medulla, and the nerve exits the skull via the hypoglossal foramen and innervates the muscles of the tongue. Lower brain stem diseases, including ischemia and MOTOR NEURON DISEASES may affect the nuclei or nerve fascicles. The nerve may also be injured by diseases of the posterior fossa or skull base. Clinical manifestations include unilateral weakness of tongue musculature and lingual dysarthria, with deviation of the tongue towards the side of weakness upon attempted protrusion.

Antitumor and immunotherapeutic effects of activated invasive T lymphoma cells that display short-term interleukin 1alpha expression. (1/1176)

Expression of cytokines in malignant cells represents a novel approach for therapeutic treatment of tumors. Previously, we demonstrated the immunostimulatory effectiveness of interleukin 1alpha (IL-1alpha) gene transfer in experimental fibrosarcoma tumors. Here, we report the antitumor and immunotherapeutic effects of short-term expression of IL-1alpha by malignant T lymphoma cells. Activation in culture of T lymphoma cells with lipopolysaccharide-stimulated macrophages induces the expression of IL-1alpha. The short-term expression of IL-1alpha persists in the malignant T cells for a few days (approximately 3-6 days) after termination of the in vitro activation procedure and, thus, has the potential to stimulate antitumor immune responses in vivo. As an experimental tumor model, we used the RO1 invasive T lymphoma cell line. Upon i.v. inoculation, these cells invade the vertebral column and compress the spinal cord, resulting in hind leg paralysis and death of the mice. Activated RO1 cells, induced to express IL-1alpha in a short-term manner, manifested reduced tumorigenicity: approximately 75% of the mice injected with activated RO1 cells remained tumor free. IL-1 was shown to be essential for the eradication of activated T lymphoma cells because injection of activated RO1 cells together with IL-1-specific inhibitors, i.e., the IL-1 receptor antagonist or the M 20 IL-1 inhibitor, reversed reduced tumorigenicity patterns and led to progressive tumor growth and death of the mice. Furthermore, activated RO1 cells could serve as a treatment by intervening in the growth of violent RO1 cells after tumor take. Thus, when activated RO1 cells were injected 6 or 9 days after the inoculation of violent cells, mortality was significantly reduced. IL-1alpha, in its unique membrane-associated form, in addition to its cytosolic and secreted forms, may represent a focused adjuvant for potentiating antitumor immune responses at low levels of expression, below those that are toxic to the host. Further assessment of the immunotherapeutic potential of short-term expression of IL-1alpha in activated tumor cells may allow its improved application in the treatment of malignancies.  (+info)

Common peroneal nerve palsy: a clinical and electrophysiological review. (2/1176)

In a series of 70 patients (75 cases of common peroneal nerve palsy) the common causes were trauma about the knee or about the hip, compression, and underlying neuropathy. A few palsies occurred spontaneously for no apparent reason. The prognosis was uniformly good in the compression group; recovery was delayed but usually satisfactory in patients who had suffered stretch injuries. In the acute stage, when clinical paralysis appears to be complete, electrophysiological studies are a useful guide to prognosis. They may also indicate an underlying neuropathy and they detect early evidence of recovery. The anatomical peculiarities of the common peroneal nerve are noted and aspects of the clinical picture, management, and prognosis of palsy are discussed.  (+info)

Incidence of deep vein thrombosis and leg oedema in patients with strokes. (3/1176)

In a series of 26 patients with strokes 13 had deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the leg, demonstrated by fibrinogen scanning. In 10 patients the thrombosis was in the paralysed leg but the degree of paralysis was unrelated to the tendency to develop DVT, which usually occurred about the third day. Leg oedema in 10 patients was unrelated to the DVT.  (+info)

A five-year assessment of controlled trials of in-patient and out-patient treatment and of plaster-of-Paris jackets for tuberculosis of the spine in children on standard chemotherapy. Studies in Masan and Pusan, Korea. Fifth report of the Medical Research Council Working Party on tuberculosis of the spine. (4/1176)

In two centres in Korea 350 patients with a diagnosis of tuberculosis of the thoracic and/or lumbar spine were allocated at random: in Masan to in-patient rest in bed (IP) for six months followed by out-patient treatment or to ambulatory out-patient treatment (OP) from the start; in Pusan to out-patient treatment with a plaster-of-Paris jacket (J) for nine months or to ambulatory treatment without any support (No J). All patients recieved chemotherapy with PAS with isoniazid for eighteen months, either supplemented with streptomycin for the first three months (SPH) or without this supplement (PH), by random allocation. The main analysis of this report concerns 299 patients (eighty-three IP, eighty-three OP, sixty-three J, seventy No J; 143 SPH, 156 PH). Pre-treatment factors were similar in both centres except that the patients in Pusan had, on average, less extensive lesions although in a greater proportion the disease was radiographically active. One patient (J/SPH) died with active spinal disease and three (all No J/SPH) with paraplegia. A fifth patient (IP/PH) who died from cardio respiratory failure also had pulmonary tuberculosis. Twenty-three patients required operation and/or additional chemotherapy for the spinal lesion. A sinus or clinically evident abscess was either present initially or developed during treatment in 41 per cent of patients. Residual lesions persisted in ten patients (four IP, two OP, one J, three No J; six SPH, four PH) at five years. Thirty-two patients had paraparesis on admission or developing later. Complete resolution occurred in twenty on the allocated regimen and in eight after operation or additional chemotherapy or both. Of the remaining four atients, all of whom had operation and additional chemotherapy, three died and one still had paraparesis at five years. Of 295 patients assessed at five years 89 per cent had a favourable status. The proportions of the patients responding favourably were similar in the IP (91 per cent) and OP (89 per cent) series, in the J (90 per cent) and No J (84 per cent) series and in the SPH (86 per cent) and PH (92 per cent) series.  (+info)

Hypoglossal nerve injury as a complication of anterior surgery to the upper cervical spine. (5/1176)

Injury to the hypoglossal nerve is a recognised complication after soft tissue surgery in the upper part of the anterior aspect of the neck, e.g. branchial cyst or carotid body tumour excision. However, this complication has been rarely reported following surgery of the upper cervical spine. We report the case of a 35-year-old woman with tuberculosis of C2-3. She underwent corpectomy and fusion from C2 to C5 using iliac crest bone graft, through a left anterior oblique incision. She developed hypoglossal nerve palsy in the immediate postoperative period, with dysphagia and dysarthria. It was thought to be due to traction neurapraxia with possible spontaneous recovery. At 18 months' follow-up, she had a solid fusion and tuberculosis was controlled. The hypoglossal palsy persisted, although with minimal functional disability. The only other reported case of hypoglossal lesion after anterior cervical spine surgery in the literature also failed to recover. It is concluded that hypoglossal nerve palsy following anterior cervical spine surgery is unlikely to recover spontaneously and it should be carefully identified.  (+info)

Isolated dysarthria due to extracerebellar lacunar stroke: a central monoparesis of the tongue. (6/1176)

OBJECTIVES: The pathophysiology of dysarthria can preferentially be studied in patients with the rare lacunar stroke syndrome of "isolated dysarthria". METHODS: A single study was carried out on seven consecutive patients with sudden onset of isolated dysarthria due to single ischaemic lesion. The localisation of the lesion was identified using MRI. The corticolingual, cortico-orofacial, and corticospinal tract functions were investigated using transcranial magnetic stimulation. Corticopontocerebellar tract function was assessed using 99mTc hexamethylpropylene amine oxime-single photon emission computerised tomography (HMPAO-SPECT) in six patients. Sensory functions were evaluated clinically and by somatosensory evoked potentials. RESULTS: Brain MRI showed the lesions to be located in the corona radiata (n=4) and the internal capsule (n=2). No morphological lesion was identified in one patient. Corticolingual tract function was impaired in all patients. In four patients with additional cortico-orofacial tract dysfunction, dysarthria did not differ from that in patients with isolated corticolingual tract dysfunction. Corticospinal tract functions were normal in all patients. HMPAO-SPECT showed no cerebellar diaschisis, suggesting unimpaired corticopontocerebellar tract function. Sensory functions were not affected. CONCLUSION: Interruption of the corticolingual pathways to the tongue is crucial in the pathogenesis of isolated dysarthria after extracerebellar lacunar stroke.  (+info)

Awareness during anesthesia: a closed claims analysis. (7/1176)

BACKGROUND: Awareness during general anesthesia is a frightening experience, which may result in serious emotional injury and post-traumatic stress disorder. We performed an in-depth analysis of cases from the database of the American Society of Anesthesiologists Closed Claims Project to explore the contribution of intraoperative awareness to professional liability in anesthesia. METHODS: The database of the Closed Claims Project is composed of closed US malpractice claims that have been collected in a standardized manner. All claims for intraoperative awareness were reviewed by the reviewers to identify patterns of causation and standard of care. Logistic regression analysis was used to identify independent patient and anesthetic factors associated with claims for recall during general anesthesia compared to other general anesthesia malpractice claims. RESULTS: Awareness claims accounted for 79 (1.9%) of 4,183 claims in the database, including 18 claims for awake paralysis, i.e., the inadvertent paralysis of an awake patient, and 61 claims for recall during general anesthesia, ie., recall of events while receiving general anesthesia. The majority of awareness claims involved women (77%), younger than 60 yr of age (89%), American Society of Anesthesiologists physical class I-II (68%), who underwent elective surgery (87%). Most (94%) claims for awake paralysis represented substandard care involving errors in labeling and administration, whereas care was substandard in only 43% of the claims for recall during general anesthesia (P < 0.001). Claims for recall during general anesthesia were more likely to involve women (odds ratio [OR] = 3.08, 95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.58, 6.06) and anesthetic techniques using intraoperative opioids (OR = 2.12, 95% CI = 1.20, 3.74), intraoperative muscle relaxants (OR = 2.28, 95% CI = 1.22, 4.25), and no volatile anesthetic (OR = 3.20, 95% CI = 1.88, 5.46). CONCLUSIONS: Deficiencies in labeling and vigilance were common causes for awake paralysis. Claims for recall during general anesthesia were more likely in women and with nitrous-narcotic-relaxant techniques.  (+info)

Golli-induced paralysis: a study in anergy and disease. (8/1176)

The Golli-MBP transcription unit contains three Golli-specific exons as well as the seven exons of the classical myelin basic protein (MBP) gene and encodes alternatively spliced proteins that share amino acid sequence with MBP. Unlike MBP, which is a late Ag expressed only in the nervous system, Golli exon-containing gene products are expressed both pre- and postnatally at many sites, including lymphoid tissue, as well as in the central nervous system. To investigate whether Golli-MBP peptides unique to Golli would result in neurological disease, we immunized rats and observed a novel neurological disease characterized by mild paralysis and the presence of groups of lymphocytes in the subarachnoid space but not in the parenchyma of the brain. Disease was induced by Th1-type T cells that displayed an unusual activation phenotype. Primary stimulation in vitro induced T cell proliferation with increased surface CD45RC that did not become down-regulated as it did in other Ag-stimulated cultures. Secondary stimulation of this CD45RChigh population with Ag, however, did not induce proliferation or IL-2 production, although an IFN-gamma-producing population resulted. Proliferation could be induced by secondary stimulation with IL-2 or PMA-ionomycin, suggesting an anergic T cell population. Cells could adoptively transfer disease after secondary stimulation with IL-2, but not with Ag alone. These responses are suggestive of a chronically stimulated, anergic population that can be transiently activated to cause disease, fall back into an anergic state, and reactivated to cause disease again. Such a scenario may be important in chronic human disease.  (+info)

Fourteen children across California have been sickened by enterovirus D68 so far this year, but a separate investigation has revealed that the rare respiratory illness was present in 2012 in patients who suffered some paralysis, state health officials said Friday.. The California Department of Public Health identified 35 patients with paralysis and spinal cord illnesses since 2012. Of those patients, three had the virus known as EV-D68. There were two in 2012 and one this year. The finding raises the question but doesnt answer conclusively if there is a link between the rare respiratory illness and limb paralysis. Because EV-D68 was found in respiratory specimens from these patients, it is not known whether EV-D68 was a cause of paralysis or a coincidental finding, said Dr. Gil Chavez, state epidemiologist for the Center for Infectious Diseases at the state health department. The CDC is investigating reports of paralysis and neurological issues in several children in Colorado. Health experts ...
Moritz: Okay, heres what we did. Our goal was to examine a potential treatment for motor paralysis, such as might result from motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, and industrial accidents that lead to spinal cord injuries. We worked with monkeys trained to play very simple video games. The goal of the video game was for the monkeys to watch a screen and manipulate a cursor by hand to match a target box, and when they did, they received a reward such as applesauce. So after the monkeys knew how to play and enjoyed playing, we used a fast-acting neuromuscular blockade to temporarily anesthetize the nerves in the shoulder. Then, we recorded extracellular activity from single neurons in the monkeys motor cortex using microwire arrays that were surgically implanted in the brain ...
Brain-computer interface (BCI) technology aims to establish a direct link for transmitting information between the brain and external devices, offering a natural and rich control signal for prosthetic hands or functional electrical stimulators (FES) to re-animate paralyzed hands. This study focuses on an ECoG-based BCI system. ECoG measures brain activity using electrodes implanted on the surface of the brain. Each participant will undergo testing of the ECoG direct brain interface for up to 29 days. Participants will learn to control computer cursors, virtual reality environments, and assistive devices such as hand orthoses and functional electrical stimulators using neural activity recorded with the ECoG sensor ...

Ticks are largely known for being an annoyance; however many of them carry the detrimental effects of Lyme disease and can also cause paralysis. When a tick bites your dog, there is a transmission of blood and saliva and some ticks carry a neurotoxin. The neurotoxin is extremely poisonous to your dog in that it causes the blood to carry the toxin and it distributes to the vital organs of the body. Cases of this manner usually result in very quick paralysis and a lot of times death shortly thereafter. If a tumor develops on the spine, it can also lead to a paralysis situation. Not only are tumors harmful and life-threatening when they are malignant, but a tumor can also press on important nerve structures when it is attached to the spine. If the tumor is allowed to progress and grow, the nerves can get to the point of destruction and paralysis will develop. When the cause of paralysis is tumors, the condition will usually occur over time and will first affect the hindquarters and then escalate to ...
Given the stalemate at Stormont it is no surprise that we are in a state of political paralysis – but it has to be a growing cause for concern that agriculture is also facing political paralysis at Westminster.
Paralysis is a loss of muscle function for one or more muscles. Paralysis can be accompanied by a loss of feeling (sensory loss) in the affected area if there is sensory damage as well as motor. About 1 in 50 people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with some form of paralysis, transient or permanent. The word comes from the Greek παράλυσις, disabling of the nerves, itself from παρά (para), beside, by and λύσις (lysis), losing and that from λύω (luō), to lose. A paralysis accompanied by involuntary tremors is usually called palsy. Paralysis is most often caused by damage in the nervous system, especially the spinal cord. Other major causes are stroke, trauma with nerve injury, poliomyelitis, cerebral palsy, peripheral neuropathy, Parkinsons disease, ALS, botulism, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, and Guillain-Barré syndrome. Temporary paralysis occurs during REM sleep, and dysregulation of this system can lead to episodes of waking paralysis. Drugs that interfere ...
β-Amyloid 42 (Aβ42) and β-amyloid 40 (Aβ40), major components of senile plaque deposits in Alzheimers disease, are considered neurotoxic and proinflammatory. In multiple sclerosis, Aβ42 is up-regulated in brain lesions and damaged axons. We found, unexpectedly, that treatment with either Aβ42 or Aβ40 peptides reduced motor paralysis and brain inflammation in four different models of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) with attenuation of motor paralysis, reduction of inflammatory lesions in the central nervous system (CNS), and suppression of lymphocyte activation. Aβ42 and Aβ40 treatments were effective in reducing ongoing paralysis induced with adoptive transfer of either autoreactive T helper 1 (TH1) or TH17 cells. High-dimensional 14-parameter flow cytometry of peripheral immune cell populations after in vivo Aβ42 and Aβ40 treatment revealed substantial modulations in the percentage of lymphoid and myeloid subsets during EAE. Major proinflammatory cytokines and ...
Paralysis is caused by multiple conditions, which may be classified as those which affect the muscles themselves, and those which act indirectly, through the nerves that control muscle action. The most common external causes for paralysis include the occurrence of a stroke, head injury, spinal cord injury and multiple sclerosis.
We recently noted, in performing a metabolic characterization of mice deleted for LKB1 in the endocrine pancreas and a restricted set of CNS neurons using a RIP2-Cre transgene (Sun et al., 2010b), that older animals became paralyzed. The principal aim of the present study was thus to dissect the pathology behind this change and, in doing so, to determine the role of LKB1 in regulating neuronal polarity and survival in the CNS in vivo.. Although mice null for LKB1 throughout the body die before E11.5, the use of an Emx1-Cre deleter strain to allow deletion in pyramidal neuron progenitors demonstrated that LKB1 is required for the polarization of cultured neurons from the neonatal hippocampus and cortex (Barnes et al., 2007; Shelly et al., 2007). We therefore reasoned that LKB1 might play a similar role in axon development and, importantly, in signal transmission along the spinal cord. Given the crucial role of the spinal cord for the normal control of motor function, we further reasoned that ...
Eight of the nine children afflicted with paralysis are up to date on their polio vaccines.. Some are reported to be improving, and it remains unclear whether or not their paralysis will be permanent.. Some enteroviruses, including D68, have been shown in rare cases in the past to be capable of causing neurologic symptoms and sudden muscle weakness.. The virus can infect the central nervous system, causing injury to some of the cells and the spinal cord, and that is what actually leads to the paralysis, said Glatter.. The emergence of paralysis cases, so far only in Colorado, suggests it is possible that the virus may be mutating, he added.. It is not clear why some children are affected and others arent at this point. So it is an ongoing puzzle that we are hoping to solve in the near future, said Glatter.. Meanwhile, the outbreak is expanding fast. Earlier this month, the CDC said about a dozen states had reported cases. By the end of September, 40 states were implicated.. Enterovirus ...
What is the government up to? Not very much, according to research out on Monday. Some serious number-crunching by the Times has revealed that Theresa Mays government is the most inactive for at least two decades. The number of votes held in the nine months since the general election - traditionally when a government enacts its vision - is lower than after each of the elections won by David Cameron or Tony Blair. Whats more, theres no sign of things improving any time soon. The threat of rebel Brexit amendments is proving so troublesome to the whips office that key votes keep being postponed.. As a result, this week MPs are being treated to two days of general debate on European affairs. Given that its only 381 days until Britain leaves the EU, youd be forgiven for thinking there may be a better way for MPs to be spending their time. Indeed, the statute book could hardly be described as Brexit-ready. Theres still a huge number of bills that need to be passed before this country is ...

Diagnosing paralysis is often easy to do because the main symptom - loss of muscle control in a body area - is obvious. An important part of the diagnosis is to determine the cause of the paralysis. This can be relatively straightforward if the paralysis occurs after an event such as a stroke or spinal cord injury. Sometimes, the doctor might want to learn more about the injury thats causing the paralysis, the degree of the paralysis, and/or the state of the nerves involved. To do that, the doctor might use one or more of these tests:. ...

As we have observed, the causes of spiritual paralysis are very numerous, and we do not expect or attempt to cover the whole ground in this present undertaking. Some of the most common, and, at the same time, such as include others, will engage our attention. We proceed to speak of The Paralysis of Disappointed Expectations. There are not a few typical instances of such in the Word of God. Some of these are discerned in ejaculative and fragmentary expressions, such as that of Job, My purposes are broken off! Or of the two on the Emmaus Road - But we had thought- or again of John the Baptist - Art Thou He that should come, or look we for another!. And then as to the man who has come to be known as The Rich Fool, there are two fragments in the narrative - He said... but God said.. In each case there was an arriving at an end, a deadlock, a paralysis, and each represented a false expectation. Two of these at least were to be accounted for by a mistaken conception. This conception is very ...

If successful, this chip would artificially bridge the gaps in the neural network, working for both afferent and efferent signals (bi-directionally) to end the paralysis.. Whats incredibly exciting about this is the possibility of communicating afferent signals. When you see demonstrations of robots being wildly inappropriate in the amount of force they use, its usually because they only have the equivalent of efferent signals. This is one of the main hindrances of using an external system, like a robotic brace, to overcome paralysis.. According to ARM: Research is also demonstrating that use of such a system may eventually help to coax brain neurons to rewire in ways that help the brain recover from stroke. While stroke and spinal injury arent the only causes of paralysis, they are two of the primary causes worldwide so eliminating these would be an immense achievement. The idea of having a computer chip inside your brain may sound like a bizarre concept, but there is already a growing ...

As September rolls in here in the mid-south, I am reminded of some wisdom I once heard: The best way to find Gods will is to get moving. If you try to plant yourself where He doesnt want you - He will move you. I am taking this wisdom to heart. I find it easy to become so overwhelmed with choice that I become paralyzed. The fact that many of us have so many choices in life can create a temporary paralyses on our part in that we dont know which way to go so we just decide not to decide and we stay stuck in our mess. We do this with the small things and the big things in our life from what diet to follow to what career field to enter. At least, I know I can have this problem. I have a lot of different interests and talents and I sometimes find it hard to choose or when I do make a choice I find brick walls everywhere I turn. Does this mean to turn back or plow through? All I know is that I cannot continue to sit still. I have to make a move and trust that if I make the wrong one - God will ...
After inoculation by the vector, the virus travels via lymphatics to lymph nodes and replicates in macrophages and neutrophils (white blood cells), resulting in lymphopenia, leukopenia and fever. Subsequent replication occur in other organs leading to viremia. Symptoms in horses occur 1 3 weeks after infection and begin with a fever that may reach as high as 106 F (41 C). The fever usually lasts for 24 48 hours. Nervous signs appear during the fever that include sensitivity to sound, periods of excitement, and restlessness. Brain lesions appear causing drowsiness, drooping ears, circling, aimless wandering, head pressing, inability to swallow, and abnormal gait. Paralysis follows causing the horse to have difficulty raising its head. The horse usually suffers complete paralysis and death 2 4 days after symptoms appear. Once a horse becomes infected with the EEE virus and develops neurologic signs, the disease is fatal in roughly 90% of cases. Survivors are left with severe sequelae ...

Doctor: Why you are in the Hospital? Patient: I have just felt unwell D: Can you move your left arm? P: Yes! D: Would you please reach my hand with your left arm…..have you done it? P: Yes, I have This sounds like an ordinary clinical conversation between a neurological patient and a doctor. However, the astonishing characteristic of such dialogue is that the patient, affected by a complete paralysis of the arm and leg, and trunk of the left side of the body due a right-hemisphere stroke, firmly denied the motor disability. This is an example of a remarkable well-known phenomenon termed anosognosia, that is the unaware of the existence of a neurologically based disability (from the Greek words nosos disease and gnosis knowledge; an- / a- is a negative prefix). In historical term, the first report of unawareness of a neurological deficit seems to be the one described by Seneca in Liber V, Epistula IX (Bisiach & Geminiani, 1991). In a letter to his friend Lucilius, he described a ...
The octopus produces venom containing tetrodotoxin, 5-hydroxytryptamine, hyaluronidase, tyramine, histamine, tryptamine, octopamine, taurine, acetylcholine, and dopamine. The major neurotoxin component of blue-ringed octopus venom was originally known as maculotoxin but was later found to be identical to tetrodotoxin, a neurotoxin also found in pufferfish and some poison dart frogs that is 10,000 times more toxic than cyanide. Tetrodotoxin blocks sodium channels, causing motor paralysis and respiratory arrest within minutes of exposure, leading to cardiac arrest due to a lack of oxygen. The toxin is produced by bacteria in the salivary glands of the octopus. Their venom can result in nausea, respiratory arrest, heart failure, severe and sometimes total paralysis and blindness and can lead to death within minutes if not treated. Death is usually from suffocation due to lack of oxygen to the brain ...

Nigeria is the only country in Africa that is yet to be certified as polio free. Surveillance for acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) is the foundation of the polio eradication initiative since it provides information to alert both health managers and clinician that timely actions should be initiated to interrupt transmission of the polio virus. The strategy also provides evidence for the absence of wild poliovirus. This evaluation was performed to assess key quality indicators defined by the polio eradication program and thus to identify gaps to allow planning for corrective measures to achieve a polio-free situation in Bauchi state and in Nigeria at large. We conducted a cross-sectional descriptive study which involved a desk review of documents to authenticate the correctness and completeness of data, and a review of documented evidence for the quality of AFP surveillance. We interviewed Local Government Authority (LGA) surveillance officers and clinicians from focal and non-focal sites, along with
05/15/2010. There were 1,606 cases of polio caused by wild poliovirus in 2009, according to the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report issued yesterday by the CDC. This number is down from the 1988 estimate of 350,000 polio cases. This reduction is indeed a remarkable accomplishment in the global health arena.. According to the same report, there were also 175 cases of vacine-derived polioviruses (cVDPVs) detected in people with AVP (acute flaccid paralysis) in six countries. The countries with cases of vaccine-derived polioviruses included Nigeria, Guinea, Ethiopia, Somalia, Democratic Republic of Congo and India.. These vaccine-derived poliovirus infections were detected through the Acute Flaccid Paralysis Surveillance system, monitored by the World Health Organization (WHO). This system is in place to measure the progress of the war to erradicate polio from the planet. It tracks all AFP cases in children under the age of 15, and any cases of AFP in older people where polio is ...
RESULTS: Of the 308 samples processed, 17 (5.5%) grew on both L20B and RD cells while 32 (10.4%) grew on RD only. All 28 isolates from L20B were characterized by rRT-PCR as Sabin-like polioviruses. No wild poliovirus or VDPV was found. However from the microneutralisation assay, six different enteroviruses were characterized. Among these, Coxsackie B viruses were most predominant followed by Echovirus. Three children from whom non-polio enteroviruses were isolated had residual paralysis while one child with VAPP found. The non-polio enteroviruses circulated throughout the country with the majority (20.7%) from Ashanti region.. Conclusions: This study showed the absence of wild or vaccine-derived poliovirus circulation in the country. However, the detection of three non-polio enteroviruses and one Sabin-like poliovirus with residual paralysis call for continuous surveillance even in the post polio eradication era.. Outcome of Research: Not applicable. Availability of Paper: The full text of this ...

BACKGROUND:: An increased alveolar-arterial oxygen tension difference is frequent in anesthetized patients. In this study, we evaluated the effect on the lung of anesthesia, muscle paralysis, and a brief course of mechanical ventilation.METHODS:: Lung diffusion for carbon monoxide (DLCO), including pulmonary capillary blood volume (Vc) and conductance of the alveolar-capillary membrane (DM), and pulmonary surfactant protein type B (a marker of alveolar damage) were measured in 45 patients without pulmonary disease undergoing extrathoracic surgery.RESULTS:: Anesthesia, muscle paralysis, and mechanical ventilation led to impairment of gas exchange, with a reduction of DLCO values immediately after anesthetic induction due to a concomitant reduction of both DM and Vc. While changes in DM were due to the reduction of lung volume, changes in Vc were not limited to volume loss, since the Vc/alveolar volume ratio decreased significantly. Although DLCO and its components decreased immediately after ...

Recently, in the Australasian Ufologist, I had an article published titled Waking paralysed:abduction or sleep paralysis? In this article I pointed out that, to me, quite a few abduction accounts seemed more like attacks of sleep paralysis accompanied by hypnagogic/hypnopompic imagery, than anything extraordinary.. While undertaking the research for that article, I started to wonder whether or not there were accounts of paralysis associated with the UFO phenomenon before abduction reports emerged in the mid 1960s? If so, what type of paralysis was reported, and were there any differences with the more recent abduction style paralysis?. A catalogue In order to look at these questions I decided to compile a catalogue of cases where paralysis was mentioned. I used my own library resources and arrived at a catalogue of 131 cases. What became readily apparent was that yes, there were paralysis cases outside of the abduction phenomenon.. The earliest cases I found were reported, and published, in ...
Following its discovery in California in 1962, enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) was reported only sporadically around the world. In August 2014, a marked increase of EV-D68 cases in young children with severe respiratory infections was reported in the USA and Canada and later in Europe and Asia. Some of these cases were also found to be associated with acute flaccid paralysis, which exacerbated public health concern, and has since triggered international efforts to strengthen both EV-D68 and acute flaccid paralysis surveillance systems. This review summarizes the current knowledge on EV-D68, offering an overview of EV-D68 epidemiology, clinical presentations, diagnostic methodologies, and treatment strategies, as well as surveillance and outbreak management ...

Many people that hear about sleep paralysis want to try it regardless of the bad experiences most people have with it. I for one have always wanted to give this thing a try.. Luckily for you itâ??s relatively easy to induce sleep paralysis. All you have to do is lie on your back and relax. What you are trying to do is to trick your brain into thinking that it is in a REM state. Simply do not move and focus on your breathing. You want to become aware of all your muscles and relax them to the point where you donâ??t feel them anymore. Donâ??t even think about moving any muscles, as you want your brain to disconnect from your voluntary muscle system.. Sleep paralysis is actually very difficult to induce because most people get bored or fall asleep. If you want to induce sleep paralysis effectively you should be able to stay awake without moving for at least an hour. Getting up to check the time or thinking about the feeling in your limbs will only further the time it takes to enter sleep ...
Ever find yourself briefly paralyzed as you´re falling asleep or just waking up? It´s a phenomenon is called sleep paralysis, and it´s often accompanied by vivid sensory or perceptual experiences, which can include complex and disturbing hallucinations and intense fear.. For some people, sleep paralysis is a once-in-a-lifetime experience; for others, it can be a frequent, even nightly, phenomenon.. Researchers James Allan Cheyne and Gordon Pennycook of the University of Waterloo in Canada explore the factors associated with distress after sleep paralysis episodes in a new article published in Clinical Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.. The researchers used an online survey and follow-up emails to survey 293 people. They measured post-episode distress using a range of items, from post-episode rumination to interference with next-day functioning.. The level of distress following sleep paralysis episodes was associated with features of the sleep ...

Canadian researchers have created a plastic tube that fits around the spinal cord and restores some movement in paralysed rats, according to research presented at the 222nd national meeting of the American Chemical Society.. The researchers say the work could lead to a new treatment for paralysis in humans.. Rats whose spinal cords had been cut walked somewhat better eight weeks after a plastic tube filled with chemicals that promote nerve growth was implanted in their spine.. We know the rats improved. What we have to do now is figure out how significant the improvement is, said lead researcher Molly Shoichet, Ph.D., an associate professor at the University of Toronto.. Shoichet, who has studied 80 rats to date, cautions that significantly more work needs to be done with animals before the treatment can be tested in people.. On a common test of paralysis that is scored from 1 (complete paralysis) to 21 (normal movement), injured and untreated rats scored a 2. Those rats that were treated with ...

Last night I woke up into paralysis but wasnt fully aware of what was happening. Also, I was wearing a sleep mask which really confused me while I was in this state. I frantically clawed at the mask to try and clear my eyes. Now remember that I was disorriented and not fully aware that I was in a state of semi paralysis. When I eventually removed the mask I could see a strange colourful creature about the size of a dog on top of my wardrobe. It was staring at me and as soon as I made eye contact with it the creature got up and flew off the wardrobe and then faded, as though it had teleported. At this point my paralysis ended and I was left with this feeling of terrible anxiety. Knowing that I had just come out of paralysis I was able to calm myself and get back to sleep but I still cant explain what I saw. This is the first time, even after all these years, that I have seen something so tangible while in paralysis ...

Fine art photographer Nicolas Bruno has suffered from the terrifying condition known as sleep paralysis for 10 years. Therapy for the condition ultimately led him to creative expression as a way to cope with the affliction, as he discusses with VICEs Creators Project in this video. Sleep paralysis is a nightmarish condition that occurs while falling asleep or on awakening, leaving the sufferer completely but temporarily paralyzed. Unable to move, speak, or scream, the condition is often accompanied by vivid hallucinations. This is the condition Bruno suffers from, and when he first began to deal with it, he turned to the Internet for answers. In his research, he stumbled across The Nightmare by Henry Fuseli (1978), a classic depiction of sleep paralysis and its associated terrors. This work of art inspired him:. ...
There is a typical case of tongue paralysis (which usually also includes general facial paralysis on one side) that sometimes happens after a stroke. In this case the stroke causes damage to either to the nerves controlling the movement of the tongue/face or to the speech region in the brain, making the patient lose the sensation to their tongue. Stroke, or stroke-like external injury, often causes one-sided paralysis, though, because the face is on many part innervated from the sides and both sides get simultaneously damaged only in some very rare cases. (Aside from a complete head trauma that would likely kill the person anyway ...
I want to flee from this apparition, but I cant move. My body is completely paralyzed, except for my eyes, which are taking in everything. The memory of this episode came flooding back while I was reading a lucid and helpful new book on Sleep Paralysis by Ryan Hurd, Ryan writes from first-hand experience, and he makes a careful study of the varying explanations for this phenomenon, in which the sufferer lies dormant, unable to move, while ghosts and demons may appear to menace him, pressing down on his chest. The condition is by no means unusual. Half the population is estimated to have suffered from sleep paralysis at some point in their lives.. Ryan identifies high-risk communities (workers on night shift, insomniacs, the jet-lagged, college kids) . He offers clear, commonsensical guidance on how to minimize your risk of finding yourself in this state, basically: keep regular hours, get enough sleep, stay grounded, dont forget to breathe, and do not lie on your back. I confess that some of ...
Although stroke is a disease of the brain, it can affect the entire body. A common disability that results from stroke is complete paralysis on one side of the body, called hemiplegia. A related disability that is not as debilitating as paralysis is one-sided weakness or hemiparesis. Stroke may cause problems with thinking, awareness, attention, learning, judgment, and memory. Stroke survivors often have problems understanding or forming speech. A stroke can lead to emotional problems. Stroke patients may have difficulty controlling their emotions or may express inappropriate emotions. Many stroke patients experience depression. Stroke survivors may also have numbness or strange sensations. The pain is often worse in the hands and feet and is made worse by movement and temperature changes, especially cold temperatures.. Recurrent stroke is frequent; about 25 percent of people who recover from their first stroke will have another stroke within 5 years.. ...

The South African Minister of Health, Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi, has announced that the government will be buying 520 000 doses of the HPV Vaccine to be given to young girls aged 9 and 10. This is due to happen in February 2014.. As a group of parents, grandparents, teachers, healthcare practitioners and citizens of South Africa, we are deeply concerned:. • There is a serious lack of scientific evidence that the HPV (Human papillomavirus) Vaccine is safe to give to young girls. After Gardasil (the name of the HPV Vaccine) was licenced and three doses given to 11 - 12 year old girls, there were thousands of reports of sudden collapse with unconsciousness within 24 hours, seizures, muscle pain and weakness, disabling fatigue, Guillain Barre Syndrome, facial and limb paralysis, brain inflammation, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, blood clots, optic neuritis, strokes, heart and other serious health problems, including death, following the receipt of this vaccine ...

Polio or poliomyelitis is a disease that causes paralysis due to polio virus. Polio viruses are of 3 types - Type I, II or III. Hence infection due to any one of the virus can lead to polio.
In the majority of cases, the infection is asymptomatic - persons do not exhibit symptoms. Those that do have very mild symptoms and the infection may go unnoticed. Symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, stiff neck, muscle pain, and vomiting. In some cases, the virus enters the bloodstream to attack the Central Nervous System which causes paralysis, usually in the legs. This is also known as Acute Flaccid Paralysis where the limbs become floppy. In severe cases, patients can become quadriplegic when the thorax and abdomen muscles become paralyzed and have difficulty breathing, swallowing, or speaking. Post-Polio Syndrome, characterized by muscle weakness, joint and muscle pain, and severe fatigue, can occur in survivors 15 to 40 years after being exposed to the virus. Treatment includes supportive care of symptoms, antispasmodic medication, physiotherapy, and even orthopedic surgery. ...

HealthNewsDigest.com) - Bethesda, Md. -Nearly 282,000 people in the U.S. live with paralysis following a spinal cord injury (SCI). A review of more than 90 studies found that electrical stimulation may help restore function in those paralyzed after SCI. The article is published in Physiology.. SCI can cause paralysis in the arms, legs or both, limiting physiological functions such as movement, bladder and bowel control, and temperature regulation. Electrical stimulation, a treatment first developed in the 1960s to treat pain, has been studied as a means to restore movement in paralyzed limbs. Three types of stimulation therapies discussed in the review and found to be effective include:. ...
The classic symptoms of botulism include double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, dry mouth, and muscle weakness. Infants with botulism appear lethargic, feed poorly, are constipated, and have a weak cry and poor muscle tone. These are all symptoms of the muscle paralysis caused by the bacterial toxin. If untreated, these symptoms may progress to cause paralysis of the arms, legs, trunk and respiratory muscles. In foodborne botulism, symptoms generally begin 18 to 36 hours after eating a contaminated food, but they can occur as early as 6 hours or as late as 10 days. ...
