Introduction and purpose. The cerebrospinal fluid contains many biologically active substances, which have a broad influence on different points of application in the organism. We performed the research of the influence of cerebrospinal fluid on the rats lungs (in the connection with the studies, provided in our department and devoted to influence of xenogenic cerebrospinal fluid (XCSF) on the organism of rats). Materials and methods. The investigation was performed on 84 Wistar rats of both sexes, which were divided into the experimental and control groups. The experiment was performed on impuberal (group 1), puberal (group 2) and aged rats (group 3). The duration of the experiment was 7 (for the groups 1 and 2), 30 (for all groups) and 90 days (for the groups 2 and 3). The rats of the experimental group got XCSF at the dose 0.002 ml/g three times with the interval of 2 days (for 7-day experiment) or ten times (for 30- and 90-day experiments). The control group received 0.9 % NaCl using the ...

Recent advances in magnetic resonance imaging have made it possible to visualize and quantify flow of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in the brain. The net flow of CSF through the cerebral aqueduct was used to measure CSF production in six normal volunteers at different times during a 24-h period. CSF production varied greatly both intra- and interindividually. The average CSF production in each time interval showed a clear tendency to circadian variation, with a minimum production 30% of maximum values (12 +/- 7 ml/h) approximately 1800 h and a nightly peak production approximately 0200 h of 42 +/- 2 ml/h. The total CSF production during the whole 24-h period, calculated as an average of all measurements, was 650 ml for the whole group and 630 ml for repeated measurements in each time interval in one of the volunteers ...
Although there are many studies of the effect of epidural saline injection on reinforcement of spinal anesthesia in CSE, there is great variability in the results regarding the extent of epidural saline injection-induced spinal anesthesia because of methodologic differences among the studies, such as the use of local anesthetics for spinal anesthesia and the timing of the saline injection.2-9 Generalizing the results of these studies, the ability to increase dermatomal spread by increasing epidural volume seems to be time dependent.1-9 Beyond 20 min or after two-segment regression has begun, epidural top-up with saline does not affect sensory block extension.6,7 With regard to the increased sensory block level in CSE anesthesia, what are the implications of the saline injection-induced reduction in CSF volume in the current study? Previous studies indicated that there is a significant correlation between the lumbosacral CSF volume and sensory block spread of spinal anesthesia.10,11 Calculation ...
The nucleic acid mutation status in intracranial metastasis is markedly significant clinically. The goal of the current study was to explore whether the tumor-associated mutations can be detected by different next-generation sequencing (NGS) pipelines in paired cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and plasma samples from lung adenocarcinoma (LAC) patients with leptomeningeal metastases (LM). Paired CSF cell free DNA (cfDNA), CSF cells, plasma and formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples of primary tumors were collected from 29 LAC patients with LM to detect the mutations by different NGS pipelines. DNA libraries were generated successfully for 79 various samples in total for NGS sequencing, of which mutations were detected in 7 plasma samples (24.14%), 12 CSF cfDNA samples (66.67%), and 10 CSF cells (76.9%) samples. For the 26 patients with detected mutations, 8/26(30.77%) had mutations in plasma, which was significantly lower than that those from CSF cfDNA (12/15, 80.00%), CSF cells (10/11, 90.91%) and
A Cerebral Spinal Meningitis outbreak has killed more than 156 people throughout Nigeria. Jigwa, Kano, Bauchi, Yobe, and Katsina states are currently among the worst hit. A graver report from UNICEF states that the death toll is much steeper with 9,086 cases and 562 deaths. Out of four West African countries in the midst of meningitis outbreaks (Nigeria, Niger, Burkina Faso, and Mali), Nigeria is currently reported to be the most affected. Due to Nigerias location, in sub-Saharan Africas Meningitis Belt, seasonal epidemics expectedly occur in a cyclic pattern. Dry weather, dusty winds, cold nights, and large populations living in overcrowded conditions leave people vulnerable to respiratory infections and are among some of the reasons behind the Meningitis Belts high burden of meningococcal disease.. Cerebral Spinal Meningitis (CSM) is most often caused by the bacteria Neisseria meningitides. Bacterial meningitis is an infection of the meninges, the thin covering of the brain and spinal ...
The striking observation that almost half of participants harbored HIV-infected cells in the CSF demonstrates that the CNS compartment is a site of viral persistence despite many years of viremia suppression on ART. A recent study showed persistence of HIV DNA in CSF cells in 10 of 16 participants after ART suppression for a median of 2.6 years, including 2 who started ART during primary infection (21). Our study now reveals frequent detection of HIV DNA in CSF in a larger cohort of individuals (N = 69) who initiated ART during chronic infection and were suppressed and on ART for a median of 8.6 years. Older studies from the pre-ART era using previous PCR techniques have shown that HIV proviral DNA could be measured in CSF cells in 68% to 87% of untreated individuals, and suggest that a higher proportion of cells may harbor HIV DNA in CSF than in PBMCs (16, 22-23). Large studies of CSF cells in participants on ART who have suppressed plasma HIV RNA levels have not been previously performed. Our ...

The effect of graded change of the CSF amount on the clinical status, intracerebral pressure and brain bioelectrical activity was studied in 31 patients operated on for brain tumors of various sites. Normally, the graded change in the CSF amount made with an object of examining the biophysical characteristics of the intracranial system did not produce the impairment of the patients status. Discomfort sensation that occurred in rare cases was not a consequence of either hypo- or hypertension as such but of the absence of CNS ability to adapt rapidly to the changes of the pressure in the cranium. The graded change in the CSF amount and thus in the CSF pressure caused minimum transitory changes in the intracerebral pressure of interstitial liquid and in brain bioelectrical activity. The data obtained indicate the feasibility of studying the biophysic characteristics of the intracranial system by means of graded changes of the CSF amount in neurosurgical patients undergoing acute postoperative period.
Using rare tumor tissue specimens, researchers recently learned that an important protein that controls gene expression, known as histone H3, is mutated in up to 80% of diffuse midline gliomas. These mutations can occur in multiple genes encoding different histone protein isoforms (e.g. histone H3.3 and H3.1), and result in alteration in the amino acid sequence of the N-terminal tail of the affected histone protein (K27M and G34V). These H3 mutations also correlate with distinct tumor molecular characteristics, a more aggressive clinical course, and poorer response to conventional treatment. As a result, detection of a histone H3 mutation in brain tumor tissue through genetic sequencing or histopathologic staining is now considered diagnostic for this disease.. In contrast to midline glioma tumor tissue, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) can be easily and safely collected in the clinic, and studied in the laboratory. I previously reported the detection of tumor-related proteins in CSF from patients with ...

Background: For treatment of central nervous system infections caused by GNB, adequate cefepime concentrations are required in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) and brain. However, high plasma cefepime exposures have resulted in neurotoxicity. There is a need to understand the real-time pharmacokinetic (PK) relationship between plasma and CSF concentrations as serial CSF sampling is not regularly performed. Methods: Male Sprague-Dawley rats received cefepime via an internal jugular vein catheter. A total daily dose of 150 mg/kg/day was administered as a single injection every 24 hours (h) for 4 days. Plasma samples (mean n=5 per rat) was obtained via a 2nd dedicated catheter, with up to 5 samples obtained on a single concentration time curve. CSF sampling occurred via an intracisternal catheter, with up to 2 samples taken every 24h. Cefepime in plasma and CSF was quantified via LC-MS/MS. PK analyses were conducted using Pmetrics for R. Multiple physiologic compartmental models were fit, with the ...

An accurate and reproducible method for measuring the volume of the cranial CSF spaces was developed in the MRI unit in Glasgow by Dr. B. Condon in 1986. Using this MRI method the total cranial, cortical sulcal, ventricular and posterior fossa CSF volumes could be accurately measured, whereas only ventricular CSF volume could be estimated by previous techniques. The aim of this thesis was firstly to examine the technique critically and to reduce factors that might affect the accuracy or reproducibility of CSF volume measurement; secondly, to determine the normal range of CSF volume; thirdly, to study physiological factors that might influence the cranial CSF volume; and lastly to assess the research and clinical potential of these measurements in conditions where the CSF volumes might be altered. The original technique was modified. The accuracy of the method was improved by using 0.9% sodium chloride as a calibration reference solution, rather than water, as saline was found to produce a signal ...

Hello everyone, I had my 6 month CT scan yesterday with and without contrast, results today. I had a partial nephrectomy (3.9 x 2.5 cm, chromophobe grade 2) 6 months ago. The scan results indicate small fluid density collection is noted with no residual enhancing mass, or evidence of metastatic disease.. My urologist requested an office visit in 6 months and another CT scan in 12 months. He said if I could have a CT scan in 6 months but did not recomend it. He was not concerned with the fluid. It was small, but Im unsure of actual size.. The fluid is in the area where they took the kidney wedge out. So, did I get good news, or not? I think I got good news but the fluid worries me. Does anyone have any experience with this? If so please comment.. Thanks a bunch in advace!!. BG ...
CSF analysis is an important diagnostic tool in the investigation of neurological patients, but there are limitations to it. The cell count and protein level of the CSF can be thought of as a CNS analogue of the CBC and serum protein level. Abnormalities in the colour, cellularity and protein level of the CSF are strongly indicative of neurological disease and often contribute to the diagnosis, but are non-specific and only occasionally provide a definitive diagnosis by themselves. CNS diseases also do not always cause alterations in the CSF - abnormalities depend on the location and extent of the lesion. Prior treatment with corticosteroids may interfere with CSF and reduce the white blood cell count and percentage of neutrophils. CSF should ideally be processed (or preserved) within 30 minutes after collection because the cells deteriorate rapidly due to little protein content.. CSF collection should be performed prior to myelography, since contrast agents may induce meningeal irritation and ...
The Cerebral Spinal Fluid helps to remove heavy metals and toxins across the blood brain barrier and distribute nutrients. When there is less flow of Cerebral Spinal Fluid there is more of a chance the toxins will become trapped and start to clog up the brain with plaque and deprive the brain of essential nutrients. This important cleansing or washing effect by the Cerebral Spinal Fluid helps to make sure that these harmful toxins do not accumulate and affect our brain tissue.Inflammation in the body that is the result of certain diseases such as arthritis, osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and others can accumulate and overflow across the blood brain barrier and also affect the brain. In many cases it was noted that patients with Alzheimer and Dementia had a previous history of at least one chronic disease processes. ...
14 months from EDI. NC functioning was measured by Global Deficit Score (GDS). HIV DNA levels were measured in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and CSF cells by droplet digital PCR; soluble inflammatory markers (sCD163, IL-6, MCP-1, TNF-α) and marker of neuronal damage (neurofilament chain [NFL]) were measured in blood plasma and CSF supernatant by immunoassays. Next generation sequencing (NGS) data by Roche 454 were successfully generated for HIV env from 8 paired blood and CSF cell pellets (3 with early and 5 with late ART). Viral compartmentalization analysis via Fst statistics was performed using NGS data and repeated using representative haplotypes to guard against possible skewing of allelic frequencies due to PCR amplification and other biases. Cross-sectional comparisons between groups (early versus later ART) were performed using non-parametric statistical analysis ...
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analysis is commonly referred to as a spinal tap. During this procedure, a small volume of spinal fluid is collected and submitted to a laboratory for analysis of protein content, white blood cell count and determination of the types of white blood cells that are present. Spinal fluid is very sensitive for identifying disease in the central nervous system, but is not very specific to which disease is present as there is a great deal of overlap between diseases.. CSF analysis is used in conjunction with other tests, including MRI, to narrow the list of possible neurological diseases. In some cases, CSF will provide a definitive diagnosis, such as lymphoma, a type of cancer. Tests for several infectious diseases (Figure 2) can be performed on spinal fluid if needed.. In animals this procedure is performed under general anesthesia. While a person may be asked to lie still for a procedure, an animal cannot. However, since the animals are under anesthesia, there is no pain ...

In normal patients, blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) contain circulating cells and other molecules such as proteins and nucleic acids. In patients with central nervous system (CNS) and other conditions, the levels of these molecules may be altered. In several other studies at our institution, the investigators are investigating such molecules in tumor specimens as well as the blood and cerebrospinal fluid of pediatric patients with CNS tumors. However, these levels are difficult to interpret without comparing them to levels in patients without CNS tumors. The investigators propose a study to collect small amounts of blood and cerebrospinal fluid from pediatric patients without CNS tumors who are undergoing a diagnostic or therapeutic neurosurgical procedure aimed at addressing altered CSF dynamics ...

Newer theories suggest waste are cleared from the brain by cerebrospinal fluid flushing through the brain. The accumulation of certain waste products within the brain is associated with Alzheimers disease. Therefore, the mechanism of which the brain gets rid of waste may be important to properly understand the progression of neurodegenerative diseases. In this thesis I investigated theories of waste clearance from the brain using mathematical models.. The total volume of the cerebrospinal fluid around the brain is around 150 mL and it is produced and absorbed at a rate of 500 mL per day. In addition to the slow steady production, heart pulsations and respiration are drivers of cerebrospinal fluid flow. A few years ago, sleep was also proposed to cause a significant increase of cerebrospinal fluid flow into the brain increasing waste clearance.. In this thesis I consider all the different time scales on which the cerebrospinal fluid pulsates (i.e. steady flow, heart pulsations and respiration). ...

A Matlab Simulink model was developed reproducing each vessel section by a distensible compartment. Therefore the cerebral vascular tree was divided into 13 sections from carotid artery to venous sinuses and the pulsatile carotid artery and sinus pressure were inputted as Fourier series. The cross sectional area was varied according to literature data and flow resistance was implemented taking into account the rheological characteristics of blood. The Windkessel function and relaxation properties of vascular walls were integrated by a Voigt model, enabling the variation of wall properties for each section individually. Due to the distensible vessel walls each section interacts with the CSF compartment and autoregulation was implemented by a simple proportional controller. After parameterisation mean pressure and pressure amplitude in the vessel sections showed good accordance with literature values [4]. ...

AU - Britz, Gavin W.. AU - Zomorodi, Ali R.. AU - Amato, Anthony. AU - Graffagnino, Carmelo. PY - 2013/10. Y1 - 2013/10. N2 - Object. Cerebral artery vasospasm is a major cause of death and disability in patients recovering from subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Although the exact cause of vasospasm is unknown, one body of research suggests that clearing blood products by CSF drainage is associated with a lower frequency and severity of vasospasm. There are multiple approaches to facilitating CSF drainage, but there is inadequate evidence to determine the best practice. The purpose of this study was to explore whether continuous or intermittent CSF drainage was superior for reducing vasospasm. Methods. The authors performed a randomized clinical trial. Within 72 hours of admission for SAH, patients with an external ...

Values of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Cerebrospinal fluid analysis in the diagnosis of Central NervousSystem associated infectious diseases
By means of radial immunodiffusion, immunoglobulins A, G, M and albumin were determined in serum and unconcentrated cerebrospinal fluid from 182 controls and 141 patients. Concentrations in cerebrospinal fluid and serum of patients did not correlate, not even in those groups whose elevated immunoglobulin and albumin concentrations in cerebrospinal fluid resulted from damage to the blood-cerebrospinal fluid barrier, as in inflammatory diseases and neoplastic processes of the central nervous system or of the meninges.--Concentrations of immunoglobulins in cerebrospinal fluid should therefore be evaluated independently of the serum concentrations. Cerebrospinal fluid and serum constitute samples from two separate compartments which are capable of independent immune reactions.
Prior studies have described the difficulties of diagnosing neonatal meningitis based on clinical examination and laboratory data (such as CBC and blood culture).1,2,6,19-22 These studies have been limited by sample size20-22 and lack of CSF parameters2 or focused on premature neonates.1 Our study focuses on the near-term and term infants, has a large sample size, and includes data on CSF parameters.. The most common pathogens (group B streptococcus and Escherichia coli) we report are similar to those reported by Wiswell et al.2 Similar to previous reports,22-24 we also found that the finding of a positive CSF culture in neonates who have an LP is rare: 10 in 1000. However, these results underestimate the true incidence of disease, because many of the CSF cultures were obtained after antibiotics were started or from neonates born to mothers who had received antibiotics.. We had hoped to identify factors that would allow clinicians to rapidly assess the likelihood of meningitis in neonates based ...
Attempts were made to culture spirochetes from cerebrospinal fluid samples of 105 patients suspected of having Lyme borreliosis with neurological complications. At the final evaluation, only 38 patients fulfilled the criteria of neuroborreliosis. Spirochetes were cultured from cerebrospinal fluid samples of four of these patients. All four patients had pleocytosis in their cerebrospinal fluid and a history of neurological symptoms of only 4 to 10 days in duration. Two of them had no detectable antibodies against any of the isolated spirochetes in their cerebrospinal fluid, both when tested with an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and when tested by immunoblotting. An antibody reaction against the homologous isolate that was distinctly stronger than that against the heterologous isolates was found in the serum and cerebrospinal fluid samples from one patient. The cells of the isolates were morphologically similar and showed a very similar protein pattern when analyzed by sodium dodecyl ...

The objective of this work is to quantify age-related differences in the characteristics and coupling of cerebral arterial inflow and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics. To this end, 3T phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging blood and CSF flow data of eleven young (24 ± 3 years) and eleven elderly subjects (70 ± 5 years) with a comparable sex-ratio were acquired. Flow waveforms and their frequency composition, transfer functions from blood to CSF flows and cross-correlations were analyzed. The magnitudes of the frequency components of CSF flow in the aqueduct differ significantly between the two age groups, as do the frequency components of the cervical spinal CSF and the arterial flows. The males aqueductal CSF stroke volumes and average flow rates are significantly higher than those of the females. Transfer functions and cross-correlations between arterial blood and CSF flow reveal significant age-dependence of phase-shift between these, as do the waveforms of arterial blood, as well as ...
Clinical measurement of intracranial pressure (ICP) is often performed to aid diagnosis of hydrocephalus. This review discusses analysis of ICP and its components for the investigation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) dynamics. The role of pulse, slow and respiratory waveforms of ICP in diagnosis, prognostication and management of hydrocephalus is presented. Two methods related to ICP measurement are listed: an overnight monitoring of ICP and a constant-rate infusion study. Due to the dynamic nature of ICP, a snapshot manometric measurement of ICP is of limited use as it might lead to unreliable results. Therefore, monitoring of ICP over longer time combined with analysis of its waveforms provides more detailed information on the state of pressure-volume compensation. The infusion study implements ICP signal processing and CSF circulation model analysis in order to assess the cerebrospinal dynamics variables, such as CSF outflow resistance, compliance of CSF space, pressure amplitude, reference pressure,
Author(s): Holland, Dominic; Desikan, Rahul S.; Dale, Anders M.; McEvoy, Linda K. | Abstract: Age is the strongest risk factor for sporadic Alzheimer disease (AD), yet the effects of age on rates of clinical decline and brain atrophy in AD have been largely unexplored. Here, we examined longitudinal rates of change as a function of baseline age for measures of clinical decline and structural MRI-based regional brain atrophy, in cohorts of AD, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and cognitively healthy (HC) individuals aged 65 to 90 years (total n = 723). The effect of age was modeled using mixed effects linear regression. There was pronounced reduction in rates of clinical decline and atrophy with age for AD and MCI individuals, whereas HCs showed increased rates of clinical decline and atrophy with age. This resulted in convergence in rates of change for HCs and patients with advancing age for several measures. Baseline cerebrospinal fluid densities of AD-relevant proteins, Aβ1-42, tau, and phospho

Peripheral action of irisin improves glucose homeostasis and increases energy expenditure, with no data on a central role of irisin in metabolism. These studies sought to examine 1) presence of irisin in human cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and banked human hypothalamic tissue, 2) serum irisin in maternal subjects across varying adiposities with or without gestational diabetes (GDM), and 3) their respective neonate offspring. CSF, serum, and neonatal cord serum were collected from 91 pregnant women with and without GDM attending for an elective cesarean section [body mass index (BMI): 37.7 ± 7.6 kg/m2; age: 32 ± 8.3 yr]. Irisin was assessed by ELISA and correlated with biochemical and anthropometric data. Irisin expression was examined in human hypothalamus by immunohistochemical staining. Serum irisin in pregnant women was significantly lower in nonobese compared with obese and GDM subjects, after adjusting for BMI, lipids, and glucose. Irisin was present in neonatal cord serum (237 ± 8 ng/ml) ...

N2 - The syndrome of the trephined has been described in many patients with cranial defects as an indication for cranioplasty. Cerebral blood flow changes, the effect of the atmospheric pressure on the brain, as well as cerebrospinal fluid hydrodynamic changes have been postulated as the possible reasons for this syndrome. Using dynamic phase-contrast magnetic resonance imaging we measured arterial, venous, and cerebrospinal fluid flow into and out of the skull, before and after cranioplasty in one patient whose bone flap was removed because of osteomyelitis. We report significant changes in the oscillatory CSF flow after cranioplasty. A moderate increase in venous outflow as well as a two-fold increase in craniocaudal cerebrospinal ...

The invention provides a medical device having two elongate catheters, a pump, and a refrigeration system. Each catheter has a proximal end, a distal end, a lumen therebetween and communicating with a distal port. The proximal ends of the catheters are connected to the pump and the refrigeration system. The distal ends are adapted for insertion into the subarachnoid space. The cerebral spinal fluid is aspirated from the first catheter to the pump, cooled to below body temperature, and returned to the second catheter. The flow rate of the cerebral spinal fluid is adjusted according the CSF pressure and temperature. Also described are methods of using the devices in treating patients suffering from neurologic complications that arise as a result of inadequate cerebral perfusion, such as cardiac arrest, cardiac failure, low cardiac output states, stroke, head injury, cerebral aneurysm surgery, open and closed cardiac surgery and aortic surgery.

Sequencing DNA from cerebrospinal fluid may be a more effective method of detecting and characterizing genomic alterations in brain tumor metastases than sequencing DNA from plasma, according to research published in the journal Nature Communications. The aim of the research, conducted by the Institute of Oncology in Barcelona, Spain, was to determine whether analyzing ctDNA from cerebrospinal fluid would be more useful in detecting and accurately characterizing and monitoring metastases in the brain. To do this, the researchers obtained tumor samples and sequenced tumor DNA from 12 patients - four with glioblastomas, six with brain metastases from breast cancer and two with brain metastases from lung cancer. The researchers found that ctDNA from cerebrospinal fluid was more representative of brain tumor genomic alterations than ctDNA from plasma, and putative actionable gene mutations and copy-number alterations. The researchers also found that ctDNA from cerebrospinal fluid may complement the ...

According to a study published in Nature Medicine (13 April 2020), in the largest study to date of proteins related to Alzheimers disease (AD), disease-specific proteins and biological processes have been identified that could be developed into both new treatment targets and fluid biomarkers. The findings suggest that sets of proteins that regulate glucose metabolism, together with proteins related to a protective role of astrocytes and microglia - the brains support cells - are strongly associated with AD pathology and cognitive impairment.. The study, part of the Accelerating Medicines Partnership for Alzheimers Disease (AMP-AD), involved measuring the levels and analyzing the expression patterns of more than 3,000 proteins in a large number of brain and cerebrospinal fluid samples collected at multiple research centers across the United States. The study analyzed patterns of protein expression in more than 2,000 human brain and nearly 400 cerebrospinal fluid samples from both healthy ...

The aim of this study is to investigate the long-term effects of the initial spinal cord (SC) involvement in MS patients. In this retrospective, single-center study, 824 patients with definite MS were screened. A total of 348 patients were excluded for ambiguous documentation of the initial relapse, pediatric onset, diagnosis of primary progressive disease, irregular assessments or visits causing doubt on the onset of progression time, and clinical follow-up duration less than 12 months. Eventually, 476 MS patients were included. Data regarding the demographics, initial symptoms, the degree of recovery from the initial relapse, neuroimaging, cerebrospinal fluid analysis, long-term disability, and progression were collected from the medical registry. The mean duration of follow-up was 7.49 ± 5.30 years. The percentage of patients entering the progressive disease course was 23.3 in the whole group. A total of 157 patients (33.0%) had SC involvement during the first clinical relapse. These ...
