2. Neurological and neuropsychiatric syndromes associated with liver disease.
Match Strength: 6.785

The clinical presentation of acute liver failure and hepatic encephalopathy (HE) in patients with cirrhosis differs significantly. The most serious neurological complication of acute liver failure is the development of devastating brain oedema. Therefore, intracranial pressure monitoring is urgently needed in these patients. Brain oedema is amplified by hypoglycemia, hypoxia and seizures, which are also frequent complications of acute liver failure. Therefore, these parameters must also be monitored. In contrast to acute liver failure in which cerebral dysfunction progresses rapidly, cognitive ... Read More »

3. Abnormal cortical activation during response inhibition in 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.
Match Strength: 6.356

22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) is a well-known genetic risk factor for schizophrenia. The catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) gene falls within the 22q11.2 minimal critical region of the deletion. Brain activity, as measured by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) during a Go/NoGo, response inhibition task was assessed in adolescents with 22q11.2DS (n = 13), typically developing (TD) controls (n = 14), and controls with developmental disability (DD, n = 9). Subjects with 22q11.2DS were also genotyped for the COMT Met/Val polymorphism. Groups did not differ on task performance. ... Read More »

5. Bifidobacterium longum with Fructo-Oligosaccharide (FOS) Treatment in Minimal Hepatic Encephalopathy: A Randomized, Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study.
Match Strength: 6.169

Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) describes patients with chronic liver disease or cirrhosis who have no clinical symptoms of brain dysfunction but perform worse on psychometric tests compared with healthy subjects. The pathogenesis of hepatic encephalopathy is controversial although ammonia has been found to induce cerebral dysfunction. Increased intestinal ammonia production is due to bacterial urease activity and the production of other toxin methabolities, such as mercaptans, thioles. This study assesses the clinical efficacy of Bifidobacterium longum plus fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) ... Read More »

7. Transoral transclival removal of anteriorly placed cavernous malformations of the brainstem.
Match Strength: 5.835

BACKGROUND: The natural history of brain stem cavernous malformations is unfavorable because of their high hemorrhage rate and resulting neurological deterioration among patients. However, direct surgery of intrinsic and anteriorly situated cavernomas is hazardous and leads to a bad postoperative outcome because of trauma to lateral and dorsally situated eloquent areas of the brain stem. METHODS: We review the cases of two patients with symptomatic cavernous malformations of the anterior brain stem and describe the usefulness of a transoral-transclival approach. A 23-year-old man developed ... Read More »

8. Transendothelial migration of leukocytes is promoted by plasma from a subgroup of immune thrombocytopenic purpura patients with small-vessel ischemic brain disease.
Match Strength: 5.827

We previously described a subgroup of immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) patients presenting with recurring transient ischemic attack-like symptoms and progressive cognitive impairment due to small vessel disease (SVD) seen in the brain. They presented minimal bleeding despite thrombocytopenia, and platelet activation was elevated compared to classic ITP. On the hypothesis that the blood-brain barrier (BBB) is compromised in this subgroup, we investigated the effect of plasma from SVD-ITP patients on the transendothelial migration of leukocytes (TEML). Brain microvascular endothelial cells ... Read More »

9. A new procedure for communication with a patient with minimal motor function and fatigability.
Match Strength: 5.704

As with eye movements in locked-in syndrome, severe motor dysfunction should be coped with by an agreed system of interpretation to express feelings and needs. However, it is possible that such patients might make errors in the agreed system of interpretation through fatigue, which would cause misunderstandings. We report here a new questioning and verifying strategy for an agreed system of interpretation. Our questioning strategy is characterized by repeating questions in different forms, specifically by affirmative and negative sentences (Double-Checked agreed system of interpretation).

10. In vivo imaging of dendritic spines during electrographic seizures.
Match Strength: 5.608

Epilepsy is associated with significant neurological morbidity, including learning disabilities, motor deficits, and behavioral problems. Although the causes of neurological dysfunction in epilepsy are multifactorial, accumulating evidence indicates that seizures in themselves may directly cause brain injury. Although it is clear that seizures can result in neuronal death, it is likely that under some circumstances seizures can induce more subtle functional or structural alterations in neurons. We induced focal neocortical seizures with 4-aminopyridine in transgenic mice expressing green ... Read More »

12. Chemical shift magnetic resonance spectroscopy of cingulate grey matter in patients with minimal hepatic encephalopathy.
Match Strength: 5.449

Minimal hepatic encephalopathy (MHE) is frequently diagnosed in patients with liver cirrhosis who do not show overt clinical cirrhosis-associated neurological deficits. This condition manifests primarily with visuo-motor and attention deficits. We studied the association between visuo-motor deficits and magnetic resonance spectroscopic parameters in cingulate grey matter and white matter of centrum semiovale in patients with liver cirrhosis. The data revealed an increase in the glutamate-glutamine/creatine ratio and a decrease in choline/creatine and inositol/creatine ratios in patients with ... Read More »

15. Central nervous system changes in hepatitis C virus infection.
Match Strength: 5.166

Patients with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection frequently describe neuropsychological symptoms. Although hepatic encephalopathy is the best established neurological association of HCV infection, there is a growing body of literature on cerebral dysfunction, occurring at an early stage of chronic HCV infection, well before the development of cirrhosis. In this review we describe recent studies that have documented mild, but significant neurocognitive impairment in HCV infection. These deficits in patients with minimal or absent liver disease do not appear to be attributable to a ... Read More »

16. Traumatic brain injury produces delay-dependent memory impairment in rats.
Match Strength: 5.119

Memory impairment following traumatic brain injury (TBI) is common in both humans and animals. A noteworthy feature of memory dysfunction in human TBI is impaired memory performance that is dependent on the delay between initial learning and recall of information. However, previous studies of TBI-induced memory impairment in animals have failed to control for the initial amount of learning between sham and injured animals. The present study demonstrates that experimental TBI in rats produces delay-dependent memory impairment, even when the initial degree of learning is controlled for. Animals ... Read More »

17. Mechanisms of edema formation in experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. The contribution of inflammatory cells
Match Strength: 5.077

Most of the central nervous system (CNS) endothelium regulates the passage of solutes and functions as a blood-brain barrier (BBB). During experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), an inflammatory demyelinating disease of the CNS, loss of BBB function occurs. The authors have previously shown an increase in endothelial transcytotic activity associated with decreased mitochondrial content as evidence of BBB dysfunction in EAE. These changes occurred in the capillary bed and correlated with CNS edema and clinical signs. In the present report, a fixation procedure before infusion of the ... Read More »

18. Intrathecal administration of Y-27632, a specific rho-associated kinase inhibitor, for rat neoplastic meningitis.
Match Strength: 4.853

The small GTP-binding protein Rho and its target Rho-associated kinase trigger an intracellular signaling cascade that controls actin cytoskeleton and plays an essential role in cell motility and adhesion. A specific Rho-associated kinase inhibitor, Y-27632, has been reported to inhibit cancer invasion. Clinically, disseminated tumor cells in the cerebrospinal fluid invade the intraparenchymal region, damaging the brain and nerves, resulting in fatal brain stem dysfunction, despite intrathecal chemotherapy. To expand therapeutic options for this devastating neoplastic meningitis, we evaluated ... Read More »

19. Reduced extracellular dopamine and increased responsiveness to novelty: neurochemical and behavioral sequelae of intermittent hypoxia.
Match Strength: 4.841

STUDY OBJECTIVES: Vesicular monoamine transporter and dopamine D1-receptor protein expression are upregulated within the striatum of adults rats exposed to intermittent hypoxic insults as neonates. These observations prompted us to test the hypothesis that intermittent hypoxic insults, occurring during this period of critical brain development, lead to persistent reductions in extracellular levels of dopamine within the striatum. We also tested the hypothesis that post-hypoxic rats exhibit increased novelty-induced behavioral activation and increased basal levels of locomotor activity, two ... Read More »

21. Transdermal selegiline.
Match Strength: 4.774

Although older monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) are effective in the treatment of depressive disorders, they are underutilized in clinical practice due to main concerns about interaction with tyramine-containing food, and side effects. Efforts to address these safety issues led to the development of a transdermal formulation of selegiline, called selegiline transdermal system (STS). STS has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of major depression. Transdermal administration of selegiline bypasses gastrointestinal absorption and first-pass ... Read More »

23. Synergistic association of mitochondrial uncoupling protein (UCP) genes with schizophrenia.
Match Strength: 4.569

Many studies suggest that mitochondrial dysfunction is involved in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. We performed a case-control study using tag SNPs in the mitochondrial uncoupling protein genes, UCP2, UCP4, and BMCP1/UCP5, to investigate their association with schizophrenia. These neuronal UCPs are expressed in various brain tissues and may exert a neuroprotective effect against increased oxidative stress. We found modest associations between schizophrenia and the four tag SNPs, rs660339 (odds ratio (OR) = 1.330; P = 0.0043) and rs649446 (OR = 0.739; P = 0.0069) in UCP2, and rs10807344 ... Read More »
