Abstract OBJECTIVE: Investigate Vitamin D3 (VD3) effect on the Acetylcholinesterase (AChE), oxidative damage and behavioral tests in animals subjected to Intracerebroventicular injection of Streptozotocin (ICV-STZ) simulating a Sporadic Dementia of Alzheimer's Type (SDAT) and treated with VD3 (21 days). METHODS: Animals were divided into eight groups: Vehicle, VD12.5 μg/kg, VD42 μg/kg, VD125 μg/kg, STZ, STZ+VD12.5 μg/kg, STZ+VD42 μg/kg, STZ+VD125 μg/kg. RESULTS: VD3 prevented the increase in AChE in groups of VD42 µg/kg and VD125 µg/kg; in AChE of synaptossom...

Authors: Milh M, Riccardi F, Denis J Abstract The weight of monogenic abnormalities in the possible causes of epilepsy has grown significantly in recent years, due to the emergence of next-generation sequencing (NGS) techniques. Especially notable in early neonatal and infantile epilepsies, which seem to be explained by monogenic abnormalities. This short review focuses on the major genes associated with very early-onset epilepsies, where NGS techniques are most cost-effective: early infantile epileptic encephalopathy, early myoclonic encephalopathy, and other neonatal epilepsies. The discovery of the genetic mutat...

ConclusionsOur casuistic represents the first case series and epidemiological study of SUDEP cases conducted in Spain. The incidence in our population agrees with the reported in other countries. However, in our population, SUDEP is probably underdiagnosed due to administrative and legal issues.

DiscussionOur results encourage an independent validation cohort study to confirm the indication that the plasma Aβ1–40/Aβ1–42 ratio, assessed via Simoa, may improve future standard of care and clinical trial design.

DiscussionFor the first time, we demonstrated that the pleiotropic biological effect of the APOE ε4 allele impacts the dynamic trajectory of the DMN during aging. Dynamic functional biomarkers may become useful surrogate outcomes for the development of preclinical targeted therapeutic interventions.

Authors: Rivera M, Porras-Segovia A, Rovira P, Molina E, Gutiérrez B, Cervilla J Abstract BACKGROUND: Life expectancy of people with depression is on average 15 years less than that of the general population. This excess of mortality is largely attributed to a deteriorated physical health. Evidence about the association between major depressive disorder (MDD) and physical health is still lacking in some areas. The aim of this study was to explore the association between MDD and physical health-related variables in southern Spain. METHODS: The PISMA-ep is a cross-sectional study based on community-dwellin...

Conclusion: Using a largely theoretical model, the six modifiable lifestyle factors were estimated to be attributable to 50.9% of dementia cases in Barbados. Since the risk factors have much in common, any intervention that targets one of them could significantly reduce future dementia prevalence. PMID: 31093046 [PubMed]

In this study we hypothesized that the alleviation of neurological symptoms long after internal carotid artery (ICA) stenting may be related to sustained improvement of cerebral perfusion. Thirty-four subjects (F/M; 15/19) with>70% stenosis of a single internal carotid artery and neurological symptoms, who underwent a carotid artery stenting procedure, were studied. Brain computed tomography perfusion (CTP) imaging was performed before and 3 years after ICA stenting. The following relative variables were compared: cerebral blood flow (rCBF), cerebral blood volume (rCBV), mean transit time (rMTT), time to peak (rTTP...
