  • Eichler said that the disease affects about one in 21,000 boys, but added that he suspected that, as testing for the disorder increases, the incidence might fall to one in 12,000.[medpagetoday.com]
  • Over time, FTD predisposes an individual to physical complications such as pneumonia, infection, or injury from a fall. Average life expectancy is 7 to 13 years after the start of symptoms ( Onyike and Diehl-Schmid, 2013 ).[theaftd.org]

Contusion
  • Examples of brain injuries include: hematomas blood clots contusions, or bruising of brain tissue cerebral edema, or swelling inside the skull concussions strokes Examples of the symptoms of a brain injury include: vomiting nausea speech difficulty bleeding[healthline.com]
Behavior Disorder
  • REM Behavior Disorder (RBD) causes the body’s muscle atonia during sleep to malfunction. This means that rather than tossing and turning, people with RBD perform the actions occurring in their dreams even though they are asleep.[valleysleepcenter.com]
  • . • REM-sleep behavior disorder is a parasomnia frequently seen in patients with Parkinson disease and other alpha-synucleinopathies and can sometimes predate the motor and cognitive symptoms of the condition by several years or even decades.[medlink.com]

Dysautonomia
  • Familial dysautonomia (FD) is a genetic disorder that appears in about one in 3,700 individuals in the Ashkenazi Jewish population, and very rarely occurs outside that community.[medicaldaily.com]
  • There is more good news about this natural food supplement, coming out of an Israeli university: phosphatidylserine appears to improve the functioning of genes involved in degenerative brain disorders, including Parkinson’s disease (PD) and familial dysautonomia[israel21c.org]
  • Ron Bochner of Tel Aviv University's Department of Human Molecular Genetics has discovered that the same supplement improves the functioning of genes involved in degenerative brain disorders, including Parkinson's disease and Familial Dysautonomia (FD[sciencedaily.com]

  • (Blakeslee, 78) Familial Dysautonomia : a congenital disorder caused by mutations in the ‘IKBKAP’ gene. It is characterized by damage of the “sympathetic” and “parasympathetic nervous system.”[richardsonthebrain.com]
Screaming
  • If you have the condition, you may hear about your abnormal behavior because you were kicking or hitting your bed partner, screaming, or jumping out of bed.[valleysleepcenter.com]

Treatment

  • These treatments may involve diet, special dietary supplements, pharmacological agents and transplants.[kennedykrieger.org]
  • Specifically, all patients remained free of major functional disabilities post-treatment with Lenti-D.[medpagetoday.com]
  • The studies covered a wide variety of licensed and unlicensed smoking cessation medications, comparing the treatments with placebo, and the three main treatments with each other.[jpost.com]
  • MRS has proven to be a powerful complementary tool to MRI for the diagnosis and monitoring of disease progression and response to treatment because it can detect changes in cell density, cell type, and biochemical composition, not just structural changes[books.google.com]
  • Proven to improve cognition and slow memory loss, it's a popular treatment for older people experiencing memory impairment. Now a team headed by Prof. Gil Ast and Dr.[sciencedaily.com]

Prognosis

  • As the population in the developed world continues to age, neuroimaging for diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy monitoring of neurodegenerative diseases becomes increasingly important and there has been a recent surge of clinical and pre-clinical applications[books.google.com]
  • This approach may provide increased accuracy for clinicians when discussing a patient’s prognosis; thereby assisting affected individuals in making important decisions for their future,” Dr Philpott said.[monash.edu]
  • Affected individuals should talk to their physician and medical team about their specific case, associated symptoms and overall prognosis.[rarediseases.org]
  • The prognosis depends on the severity of the spasticity and the underlying disorder(s). TD is a muscle disorder that results from prolonged exposure to some types of antipsychotic and neuroleptic medications.[aans.org]

Etiology

  • Abstract Background Neurodegenerative diseases (ND) consist of divers affections of the central nervous system related to etiology, localization, and of course of the disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, we are still left with a large number of progressive diseases of unknown etiology, and their classification is based on pathologic and clinical findings.[dartmouth.edu]

Epidemiology

  • Methods Based on epidemiological data, the current neurological bibliography of ND has been considered. Additional ophthalmological data containing age-related retinal diseases were included in a comparative manner.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Migraines 28,000,000 American Headache Society: Epidemiology and Impact of Headache and Migraine (PDF) Multiple Sclerosis 350,000 National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke: Multiple Sclerosis: Hope Through Research Neurofibromatosis 100,000[ohsu.edu]
  • Epidemiologic and a few prospective studies suggest that there may be some element of inflammation in the condition and some have suggested excess oxidation as a contributing factor.[dartmouth.edu]

Pathophysiology

  • Differential diagnosis of degenerative brain diseases Project Year: 2006 Usefulness of the clock reading test in the clinical settings Project Year: 2007 Association between ADL and cognitive functions in patients with Alzheimer's disease Project Year: 2006 Pathophysiologic[researchmap.jp]
  • More information about the gene products and understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms will open the way to specific treatments. The most common degenerative disease is Alzheimer's disease and the second most frequent is Parkinson's disease.[neuropathology-web.org]
  • As time passes, it is quite likely that the specific biochemical and pathophysiological processes underpinning many of these diseases will be elucidated and their classifications will change.[dartmouth.edu]

Prevention

  • In this paper, authors contended that Alzheimer prevention starts with marijuana. That’s right, the conclusion drawn is that chemical compounds in cannabis can be used to prevent the onset of the brain disease.[intellectualtakeout.org]
  • This could open the door to new ways of treating these devastating conditions that intervene early enough to prevent some of the most devastating effects or that even change the course of the disease.[valleysleepcenter.com]
  • Learn ways that tremor used to prevent a man from certain activities until DBS improved his daily life. New research suggests that language tests could aid early diagnosis of debilitating dementia.[brainfacts.org]
  • Future studies should investigate phosphatidylserine's potential to prevent symptoms of such neurodegenerative diseases, they write. The next step is to test phosphatidylserine in randomized human clinical trials.[medicaldaily.com]
  • In FD, a rare genetic disorder that impacts the nervous system and appears almost exclusively in the Ashkenazi Jewish population, a genetic mutation prevents the brain from manufacturing healthy IKAP proteins -- which likely have a hand in cell migration[sciencedaily.com]
