Parkinson's Disease- Novel research findings

Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that develops when dopamine-producing cells die. The disease results in impairment of motor functions, resulting in tremors, slowness of movement, stiffness, and impaired coordination and balance. 
The following Novel findings on this disease may help in better diagnoses and treatment:

  1. Boosting dopamine, only at certain times, may trigger movement
  2. Reduced levels of MC1 may not be causing Parkinson’s Disease
  3. Tears might Help Diagnose Parkinson’s
  4. Parkinson’s Disease may Speed up Aging Process


To discuss more on the subject, join the "7th International Conference on #Neurology and #Neuromuscular #Diseases" on October 22-23, 2018 at Madrid, Spain.

Fungal Infections-The role in etiology of Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the central nervous system. The links between fungi and other chronic inflammatory diseases have been discovered. The HLA-DRB1*15 allele group is the most important genetic risk factor of MS and is a risk factor in several other conditions linked to fungal infections. 
The low risk of MS during childhood and its moderate association with herpes simplex virus type 2 suggest genital exposure to microbes (including fungi). Though fungal infections have not been widely studied in MS, many lines of evidence are consistent with a fungal etiology.

Extracranial Metastases- Brain tumors beyond the head

#Extracranial metastases may develop from malignant #gliomas. The most common extracranial site is #intraspinal (along the neural axis), followed by the vertebrae, lungs, liver, and lymph nodes. The complex metastatic mechanism remains unclear, and the prognosis is very poor, with a survival duration of less than 6 months.
Malignant glioma is a devastating neurological disease and characterized by progressive functional and cognitive impairments. High-grade gliomas are particularly insensitive to radiation and genotoxic drugs. #Surgery is the first-line therapy for glioma. However, gliomas recur in the resection margins of 90% of patients.

Neurological Disorders- The Global Burden

Neurology is the branch of medicine that deals with the diseases of the brain and the central and the peripheral nervous systems.
The most important task to manage the global burden of neurological disorders is to have a clear-cut view of the Epidemiology of the nervous disorders. And for which the simple ‘head count’ method will not be as effective as the statistical assessments and projections of the burden of health conditions and diseases. There are more than 600 neurological disorders and for recognizing the signs and symptoms of neurological problems, it is first important to distinguish the various types of neurological disorders and infections of the nervous system. 
To discuss more on the subject, join us at the "7th International Conference on Neurology and Neuromuscular Diseases" during October 22-23, 2018 at Madrid, Spain.

Epilepsy and Ketogenic Diet

Epilepsy is a disorder of the nervous system in which someone experiences recurrent, unpredictable seizures. It is a result of abnormal activity in the human brain. Epileptic seizures can include physical symptoms such as muscle spasms, convulsions, and unconsciousness, as well as mental symptoms such as strange behavior, etc.
The ketogenic diet has been used to treat epilepsy successfully. It is still one of the most widely used therapies for children who have uncontrolled epilepsy.
The main benefit of the ketogenic diet and epilepsy is that it allows fewer medications to be used while still offering excellent control.

nNOS- the key role player in Neuropathic pain

#Neuropathic pain is an extremely common chronic, pathologic pain which is caused by the damage of #nerve cells and also by chemotherapy. The pathological pain is triggered by a biological pathway that is activated by binding of the excitatory transmitter glutamate to receptors called NMDARs. This process then triggers activation of an enzyme neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) that generates nitric oxide gas that plays a role in aberrant pain sensation.
