  • Key points • Sleep disorders, such as insomnia , sleep apnea , restless legs syndrome , certain parasomnias , and circadian rhythm disorders, are disproportionally more common in patients with cerebral degenerative disorders than in the general population[medlink.com]
Loss of Attention
  • Interviews with relatives and loved ones of brain donors pointed to these symptoms: Stage 1 – Headache and loss of attention and concentration. Stage 2 – Depression, explosive behaviour and short-term memory loss.[cbc.ca]

  • New treatments, especially those which might help neurons repair their damaged axons, are still being developed.[en.wikiversity.org]
  • Treatment Treatment of degenerative disorders depends on the specific disorder, but often patients benefit from conservative therapy, rest, and physical therapy.[orthoneuro.com]
  • “And as this boy is the only other child known to have Iris’ mutation, it could be incredibly valuable for researchers to learn more about the genetics and hopefully find a treatment or cure.”[telegraph.co.uk]

Prognosis

  • Treatment and Prognosis Therapies for most lysosomal storage diseases are limited. In the past, treatment has focused on supportive care and symptomatic management.[pedclerk.bsd.uchicago.edu]

Etiology

  • Another major theme in the research on etiology of HD is the disturbance of cell metabolism.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In specific reference to JDD its primary etiology appears to be that of failure of normal spine development early in the fetal process of differentiation.[burtonreport.com]
  • 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]
  • There are a wide range of medical interventions required for CF patients (summarized in Table 1 ) which have to be tailored to the individual patient and which depend on their specific symptoms, disease etiology, age and general health.[doi.org]
