BACKGROUND: We studied a family including two half-siblings, sharing the same mother, affected by slowly progressive, adult-onset neurological syndromes. In spite of the diversity of the clinical features, characterized by a mild movement disorder with cognitive impairment in the elder patient, and severe motor-neuron disease (MND) in her half-brother, the brain Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) features were compatible with adult-onset Alexanders disease (AOAD), suggesting different expression of the same, genetically determined, condition.METHODS: Since mutations in the alpha isoform of glial fibrillary acidic protein, GFAP-α, the only cause so far known of AOAD, were excluded, we applied exome Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) to identify gene variants, which were then functionally validated by molecular characterization of recombinant and patient-derived cells.RESULTS: Exome-NGS revealed a mutation in a previously neglected GFAP isoform, GFAP-ϵ, which disrupts the GFAP-associated ...
Alexander disease is a rare disorder resulting from a glial fibrillary acidic protein gene mutation which causes progressive degeneration of white matter. With the usual poor prognosis, there are few case reports with long-term follow-up. We report the five-year clinical course of Alexander disease in one case using serial magnetic resonance imaging. A 12-month-old Japanese male was referred to the pediatrics department in our hospital because of developmental retardation. Alexander disease was diagnosed by gene examination of the mutation of a glial fibrillary acidic protein. Magnetic resonance imaging findings showed abnormalities in white matter, deep gray matter, and medulla oblongata. Serial magnetic resonance imaging examinations until the age of five were performed and changes in magnetic resonance imaging findings were compared to the progression in clinical symptoms. Alexander disease is a very rare disease with a variety of clinical phenotypes. Therefore serial magnetic resonance imaging
Alexander disease, also known as fibrinoid leukodystrophy, is a progressive and fatal neurodegenerative disease. It is a rare genetic disorder and mostly affects infants and children, causing developmental delay and changes in physical characteristics. Delays in development of some physical, psychological and behavioral skills; progressive enlargement of the head (macrocephaly), seizures, spasticity, and in some cases also hydrocephalus, idiopathic intracranial hypertension, and dementia. Alexander disease is a genetic disorder affecting the midbrain and cerebellum of the central nervous system. It is caused by mutations in the gene for glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) that maps to chromosome 17q21. It is inherited in an autosomal dominant manner, such that the child of a parent with the disease has a 50% chance of inheriting the condition, if the parent is heterozygotic. However, most cases arise de novo as the result of sporadic mutations. Alexander disease belongs to leukodystrophies, a ...

Palatal tremor is essential (EPT), where isolated, or symptomatic (SPT), where part of a symptom complex. SPT is reported with lesions in the dentato-rubro-olivary pathway and in neurodegenerative and genetic disorders. Some patients have the poorly understood progressive ataxia and palatal tremor (PAPT).. We report a series of twelve patients with SPT. Two have been diagnosed with multi-system atrophy without pathological confirmation. Two have vascular disease affecting the dentato-rubro-olivary pathway. One has mutation-proven Alexander Disease. The remaining seven are all male and classified as sporadic PAPT.. The age range at symptom onset is 36-87 years (36-80 in the PAPT group). All twelve have ataxia. Of the PAPT group, five of seven (71%) have dysarthria. Two PAPT patients had normal DAT scans, and two tested negative for POLG1 and Alexander Disease. Eleven of the twelve (except the Alexander Disease patient) had bilateral olivary hypertrophy on brain MRI.. Palatal tremor is often ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - αB-crystallin and 27-kd heat shock protein are regulated by stress conditions in the central nervous system and accumulate in Rosenthal fibers. AU - Iwaki, T.. AU - Iwaki, A.. AU - Tateishi, J.. AU - Sakaki, Y.. AU - Goldman, J. E.. PY - 1993/12/1. Y1 - 1993/12/1. N2 - To understand the significance of the accumulation of αB-crystallin in Rosenthal fibers within astrocytes, the expression and metabolism of αB- crystallin in glioma cell lines were examined under the conditions of heat and oxidative stress, αB-crystallin mRNA was increased after both stresses, and αB-crystallin protein moved from a detergent-soluble form. In addition, Western blotting of Alexanders disease brain homogenates revealed that the 27-kd heat shock protein (HSP27), which is related to αB-crystallin, accumulates along with αB-crystallin. The presence of HSP27 in Rosenthal fibers was directly demonstrated by immunohistochemistry. Our results suggest that astrocytes in Alexanders disease may be ...
Alexander disease, a Leukodystrophy, is a progressive and fatal neurological disorder in which the destruction of white matter in the brain is accompanied by the formation of abnormal deposits known as Rosenthal fibers. Rosenthal fibers are aggregations of protein that occur in astrocytes, one of the so-called "glial" cells of the central nervous system. These aggregates are found occasionally in other disorders, but not with the abundance or particular distribution in the brain that occurs in Alexander disease.. The age of onset is quite variable, ranging from prenatal through the sixth decade. The most common classification divides patients into three categories based on age of onset, infantile (0-2 years), juvenile (2-12 years), and adult (,12 years). More recently, a different classification has been proposed, with only two categories of type I and type II, with the distinction hinging more on distribution of lesions and clinical presentation rather than age of onset (all type I cases being ...
Alexander appeared on every cycle of the television program Americas Next Top Model as the runway coach to the contestants. He was made a judge starting with Cycle 5. As of Cycle 14 of the show, Alexander was replaced as a permanent judge on the panel by Vogue editor at large André Leon Talley.[9] Alexander stayed on as the shows runway coach and has appeared in many of the international versions of the show.[10]. Alexanders nickname "Miss J", or lovingly "Siss J" after the word sister came from Cycle 1 contestant Robin Manning, who often confused Alexander and Jay Manuel and on several occasions referred to Alexander as "Miss J" by accident because of his flamboyant clothing (Alexander often dresses in drag and usually wears a skirt and high heels during runway walking training) and personality. Accordingly, Jay Manuel is referred to as "Mr. Jay", and ANTM contestants often call them "The Jays", "The Two Jays" or "Mr. and Ms. Jay" when they appear together.[11] In 2008, the Jays were cast ...
Alexander disease is a rare, progressive, and generally fatal neurological disorder that results from dominant mutations affecting the coding region of GFAP, the gene encoding glial fibrillary acidic protein, the major intermediate filament protein of astrocytes in the central nervous system. A key step in pathogenesis appears to be the accumulation of GFAP protein within astrocytes to excessive levels. Studies using mouse models indicate that the severity of the phenotype correlates with the level of expression, and suppression of GFAP expression and/or accumulation is one strategy that is being pursued as a potential treatment. With the goal of identifying biomarkers that indirectly reflect the levels of GFAP in brain parenchyma, we have assayed GFAP levels in two body fluids in humans that are readily accessible as biopsy sites - cerebrospinal fluid and blood. We find that GFAP levels are consistently elevated in the CSF of Alexander disease patients, but only occasionally and modestly in ...
The #1 New York Times bestselling account of a neurosurgeons own near-death experience-for readers of 7 Lessons from Heaven. Thousands of people have had near-death experiences, but scientists have argued that they are impossible. Dr. Eben Alexander was one of those scientists. A highly trained neurosurgeon, Alexander knew that NDEs feel real, but are simply fantasies produced by brains under extreme stress.Then, Dr. Alexanders own brain was attacked by a rare illness. The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion-and in essence makes us human-shut down completely. For seven days he lay in a coma. Then, as his doctors considered stopping treatment, Alexanders eyes popped open. He had come back. Alexanders recovery is a medical miracle. But the real miracle of his story lies elsewhere. While his body lay in coma, Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine

Alexander Fleming 1881 - 1955 Alexander Fleming was born in a lonely, rural part of Scotland as the seventh of eight siblings and half-siblings, his family worked an 800-acre farm far away from the nearest house. The Fleming children spent much of their time in the streams, valleys, and moors of the countryside. We unconsciously learned a great deal from nature, said Fleming. When their father died, his eldest son took over the running of the farm. Another brother Tom had studied medicine and was opening a practice in London. Soon, inspired by their brother, four Fleming brothers and a sister were living together in London. Alec, as Alexander was called, had moved to London when he was around 14, and ...
Understanding that poor posture is something we teach ourselves, its also important to be aware that it can also be unlearned, by incorporating the right techniques.. The Alexander Technique is integral to correcting poor posture and alleviating the physical effects caused by incorrect body alignment. Rather than being defined as a medical practice, Alexander Technique could be described as a body and mind educational training methodology that teaches you how to achieve optimal coordination and alignment for your individual body shape, by rediscovering better postural techniques.. While you may not have heard of this form of postural training before, it was initially introduced by founder Frederick Matthias Alexander in the 1890s. In conjunction with realigning posture, training in Alexander Technique also helps you avoid unnecessary muscular and mental tension.. Alexander Technique is a preferred training methodology to help prevent musicians injuries and has been known to have positive ...
I have just finished reading a book about the life and times of Alexander The Great ("Alexander The Great" by Robin Lane Fox. Published by Penguin Book. ISBN 0-141-02076-8).. I have recently read a number of different books about Alexander but this one, in particular, kept me going throughout. It was interesting and factual without being condescending. This book doesnt try to paint Alexander as either Great or the Devil but as truly a man who set out to exert some degree of revenge but ended up having travelled from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean and was, arguably, the first true explorer.. This man not only trod the path of being an explorer but was a conqueror who took with him thousands of followers who also fought battles, disease, distance, hunger, thirst and the geography to travel the miles with him.. Alexander may or may not have been The Great but he was truly remarkable. I am glad to have found and read this book.. ...

The use of imagery to teach or learn the Alexander Technique is, to put it mildly, a controversial topic.. The diverse views were on full display in recent exchanges on the Alexander Technique Forum Facebook Page(1) include everything from general disapproval of using images to endorsement in some or many teaching situations.. Some members have also pointed out that a teachers verbal instructions can generate mental images in a students mind, so the distinction between using words while teaching - which has a long history in Alexander Technique teaching - and using images isnt always clear.. Personally, Ive had mixed results with using mental images.. While I was training in England, I had a great many lessons from a remarkable teacher (not connected to my training course) who used the "string pulling your head up" image during lessons.. On the plus side, that image did get me "out of my hips" in a way Id never before experienced, and the teachers on my training course, who knew nothing ...

P,A main neurogenic niche in the adult human brain is the subventricular zone (SVZ). Recent data suggest that the progenitors that are born in the human SVZ migrate via the rostral migratory stream (RMS) towards the olfactory bulb (OB), similar to what has been observed in other mammals. A subpopulation of astrocytes in the SVZ specifically expresses an assembly-compromised isoform of the intermediate filament protein glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP-delta). To further define the phenotype of these GFAP-delta expressing cells and to determine whether these cells are present throughout the human subventricular neurogenic system, we analysed SVZ, RMS and OB sections of 14 aged brain donors (ages 74-93). GFAP-delta was expressed in the SVZ along the ventricle, in the RMS and in the OB. The GFAP-delta cells in the SVZ co-expressed the neural stem cell (NSC) marker nestin and the cell proliferation markers proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and Mcm2. Furthermore, BrdU retention was found ...
Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), a 50 kDa protein, is a major intermediate filament protein in mature astrocytes. It is used as a marker to distinguish astrocytes from other glial cells during development. Mutations in the GFAP gene in humans cause Alexander disease, a very rare, fatal neurodegenerative disease that mostly affects infants and children and results in developmental delay and changes in physical characteristics. GFAP is also known as FLJ45472.. ...

Thirdly the Alexander Technique may improve the cerebellum, an area of the brain that has been linked with dyslexia and ADD, especially by Dore Centres / DDAT. The main role of the cerebellum is coordination of thoughts and actions, something which is often poor in children with learning difficulties. Through the Alexander Technique you learn to move your body in a controlled manner which requires you to learn a level of mental discipline. It should not be forgotten that the body is a very complex organism that is sending many different pieces of information to the brain: How hot am I? Where are my legs? What can my fingers feel? Do I need to go to the toilet? With all this information rushing into the brain, swamping the under-developed cerebellum, its conceivable that as a coping strategy the brain just ignores it. This could give rise to the clumsiness and inattentive behavior as the child is ignoring the signals the body sends it. With the Alexander Technique, it possible to become aware of ...

THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING ACCOUNT OF A NEUROSURGEONS OWN NEAR-DEATH EXPERIENCE.Internationally acclaimed neurosurgeon Dr Eben Alexander always considered himself a man of science. His unwavering belief in evidence-based medicine fuelled a career in the top medical institutions of the world. But all this was set to change. One morning in 2008 he fell into a coma after suffering a rare form of bacterial meningitis. Scans of his brain revealed massive damage. Death was deemed the most likely outcome. As his family prepared themselves for the worst, something miraculous happened. Dr Alexanders brain went from near total inactivity to awakening. He made a full recovery but he was never the same. He woke certain of the infinite reach of the soul, he was certain of a life beyond death. In this astonishing book, Dr Alexander shares his experience, pieced together from the notes he made as soon as he was able to write again. Unlike other accounts of near-death experiences, he is able to explain in

Struck in the name of King Philip III Arrhidaeus, Alexander the Greats half-brother, under the regent Perdikkas. Philip III and Alexanders infant son, Alexander IV, were made joint kings after Alexanders death. Philip was the bastard son of Philip II and a dancer, Philinna of Larissa. Alexander the Greats mother, Olympias, allegedly poisoned her stepson Philip III as a child, leaving him mentally disabled, eliminating him as a rival to Alexander. Neither Philip III nor Alexander IV was capable of actual rule and both were selected only to serve as pawns. The regents held power, while Philip III was actually imprisoned.

Alexander Ivanovitch Spiridovitch was born August 5, 1873 (old style) in the small town of Kemi in the Archangel government, on the shore of the White Sea. His father, Ivan Matveyovitch Spiridovitch was a Second Captain in command of a regiment of border guards.. The Spiridovitch family was listed in the Book of the Nobilitys Sixteenth section, having been granted a hereditary Noble Title by Tsar Alexis in 1668, and confirmed by an Ukaze which granted them land and serfs in the Smolensk region.. Second Capt. Spiridovitch immediately made a declaration of his sons birth to the Assembly of the Nobility of Smolensk for which he was given a certificate of Nobility in his sons name.. His father instilled in him as his guiding principles a love of God, Tsar and devotion to his country: For the Faith, For the Tsar and for the Nation was his motto.. However much his father loved young Alexander Ivanovitch, he was raised strictly in accordance with the customs of the era and later recalled that his ...

Ashley threw herself into running Alexanders therapy program full-time, and my daily routine as a work-from-home freelancer soon involved at least as much duty as a therapy assistant. The stress was enormous, and our debt grew whenever we sacrificed more work time for Alexanders sessions. For my wife, the manager of our ersatz team, administering the multiple programs meant constructing a self-made cage. Once, our professional lives had involved extended research trips, and now whole weeks could pass without either of us leaving the house except to ferry our daughter to and from school.. Still, we agreed that the strain on our family was far better than the despair of not knowing what to do. We believed, most of the time, that there was a smart little boy straining to emerge from those flapping, disorganized limbs. Alexanders program required a platoon of volunteer helpers, which meant most of our block knew all about his condition. The spring after he turned three, when he started to walk up ...

Small heat shock proteins (sHsps) are a group of proteins with molecular mass between 12 and 43 kDa. Currently, 11 members of this family have been classified, namely HspB1 to HspB11. HspB1, HspB2, HspB5, HspB6, HspB7, and HspB8, which are expressed in brain have been observed to be related to the pathology of neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinsons, Alzheimers, Alexanders disease, multiple sclerosis, and human immunodeficiency virus-associated dementia. Specifically, sHsps interact with misfolding and damaging protein aggregates, like Glial fibrillary acidic protein in AxD, β-amyloid peptides aggregates in Alzheimers disease, Superoxide dismutase 1 in Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cytosine-adenine-guanine/polyglutamine (CAG/PolyQ) in Huntingtons disease, Spinocerebellar ataxia type 3, Spinal-bulbar muscular atrophy, to reduce the toxicity or increase the clearance of these protein aggregates ...

HspB1, HspB2, HspB5, HspB6, HspB7, and HspB8, which are expressed in brain have been observed to be related to the pathology of neurodegenerative diseases, including Parkinsons, Alzheimers, Alexanders disease, multiple sclerosis, and human immunodeficiency virus-associated dementia. Specifically, sHsps interact with misfolding and damaging protein aggregates, like Glial fibrillary acidic protein in AxD, β-amyloid peptides aggregates in Alzheimers disease, Superoxide dismutase 1 in Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and cytosine-adenine-guanine/polyglutamine (CAG/PolyQ) in Huntingtons disease, Spinocerebellar ataxia type 3, Spinal-bulbar muscular atrophy, to reduce the toxicity or increase the clearance of these protein aggregates ...
The new study, published online in the current (July 2010) issue of the journal Human Molecular Genetics by a team led by University of Wisconsin-Madison neuroscientist Albee Messing, identifies a set of FDA-approved drugs that seem to tamp down the overproduction of a brain protein that is the hallmark of Alexander disease, a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that affects mostly infants and children.. The new study, carried out during the past five years, provides a glimmer of hope for alleviating a congenital brain disease with existing drugs. Because the disease is so rare, known to have occurred in fewer than 300 people worldwide, the prospects of developing dedicated drugs to treat the condition are almost nonexistent, making such pharmaceutical prospecting the quickest path to effective treatments.. "What we are hoping for is something we can use to manage the disease and improve survival," says Messing, a Waisman Center researcher and a professor of comparative biosciences in the ...
