Romero, Enrique Lanuza, Roberto Vivo-Hernando, Fernando Aparici-Robles, Pierrick CoupeAbstractParkinson is a very prevalent neurodegenerative disease impacting the life of millions of people worldwide. Although its cause remains unknown, its functional and structural analysis is fundamental to advance in the search of a cure or symptomatic treatment. The automatic segmentation of deep brain structures related to Parkinson`s disease could be beneficial for the follow up an...

The materials here report on efforts to screen for small molecule compounds that can reduce the age-related decline of mitochondrial function observed in neurons - and indeed throughout the body. Screening the contents of compound libraries is a process that might sound simple, and conceptually it is, but it is a complex task to build a cost-effective system and supporting logistics to screen for a novel outcome. In this case the outcome is a reversal of at least some degree of reduced mitochondrial function in neurons from old tissue, as well as improvement in important aspects of neural function. Every cell contai...

Today on THCB Spotlights, Matthew chats with a couple of the OGs from the original days of Health 2.0—Scott Shreeve, founder and CEO of Crossover Health, and Jay Parkinson, founder and CEO of Sherpaa, who were the first ones doing something different in terms of doctors figuring out this digital health stuff. The two of them ask the question, what would happen if you married the physical world with the online world and created a new care model that exceeds at both? While Scott was putting in onsite primary care clinics to employers like Apple and Facebook, he realized Crossover wasn’t reaching 70% of the people...

Publication date: May 2020Source: Materials Science and Engineering: C, Volume 110Author(s): T.K. Henna, K. PramodAbstractCarbon-based nanomaterials have established a prime position as drug delivery carriers. It is very interesting to see that a carbon nanostructure could be used as a drug too, instead of its regular application as a drug delivery carrier. In this aspect, graphene quantum dots (GQDs) are now in the spotlight. GQDs are one of the recent entrants to the list of carbon-based nanomaterials. They are now reported useful in Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. Furthermore, antibacterial and anti-diabetic poten...

(University at Buffalo) The new study explores alpha-synuclein's basic properties, with a focus on a section of the protein known as the non-amyloidal component (NAC). The research was done on fruit fly larvae that were genetically engineered to produce both normal and mutated forms of human alpha-synuclein.

Authors: Draoui A, El Hiba O, Aimrane A, El Khiat A, Gamrani H Abstract Parkinson's disease is a very complex public health problem with different etiologies and a wide range of clinical features including motor and non-motor symptoms. The aim of the current report is to review the latest advances in the understanding of PD etiologies, diagnosis, epidemiology and an overview of the earlier and latest advances in the management of PD, from L-DOPA to adult astroglia reprogramming into dopaminergic neurons in vivo.
