Ermelinda S. Eusébio A study has been carried out of binary solid systems made up of the antiepileptic drug levetiracetam, LEV, and a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, NSAID, capable of managing the inflammation that accompanies epileptic activity. One aim of this research was to identify eutectic mixtures and co-crystals, which are able to impact positively on their biopharmaceutical properties. The NSAIDs studied ar...

This study aims to explore the correlation between interleukin‐1 (IL‐1) and epilepsy in rats when treated with low‐frequency electrical stimulation via the RhoA/ROCK signaling pathway. Twenty‐four SD rats were elected for this study, among which six rats were assigned as the normal group. And 16 rat models with epilepsy were successfully established and assigned into the model group, the ES group and the ES + IL‐8 group, with each group comprising of six rats. The seizure frequency and duration was recorded. Electroencephalogram (EEG) power was detected at α1, α2, β, θ and δ. The mRNA...

Saturday’s Google Doodle paid homage to Asima Chatterjee, a renowned organic chemist from India. Saturday marks what would have been Chatterjee’s 100th birthday. The chemist died at the age of 89 in 2006. Chatterjee was the first woman to receive a Doctorate of Science in India and her work involved many breakthroughs in medicine. According to her Google Doodle page, her work contributed to the development of treatments for epilepsy, malaria and chemotherapy. Chatterjee was also given high honors in India. She received the Padma Bhushan, which is the third-highest award a civilian can receive in India. She was ...

DISCUSSION: The clinical presentation, characteristic MRI features together with the reversible nature of the syndrome suggest the diagnosis of PRES. The precise pathophysiological mechanism of PRES still remains unclear. Hypertension, clinical conditions that are associated with impaired cerebral auto-regulation as well as alcohol use which increases the levels of reactive oxygen species and nitric oxide may lead to the disruption of endothelial cells and blood-brain barrier breakdown. Overall, in our case, we think chronic alcoholism and alcohol withdrawal might have caused endothelial dysfunction leading to PRES. P...

Focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) is one important cause of drug-resistant epilepsy potentially curable by epilepsy surgery. We investigated the options utilizing neuronavigation and intraoperative MR imaging to avoid residual epileptogenic tissue during resection of FCD II patients in order to improve seizure outcome.

Publication date: February 2018 Source:Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Volume 40 Author(s): Guadalupe Dorantes-Méndez, Martin O. Mendez, Alfonso Alba, Liborio Parrino, Giulia Milioli In the present study, a comparison of the heart rate variability (HRV) behavior between healthy subjects and Nocturnal Front Lobe Epilepsy (NFLE) patients was carried out during the A-phases of sleep. The A-phases are short cortical events that interrupt the basal oscillation of the sleep stages and form the cyclic alternating pattern phenomenon. HRV was assessed by means of standard temporal measures and frequency measures b...
