Discussion: Residue G1306 Neonatal laryngospasm and unusual distribution of myotonia, muscle hypertrophy, and weakness encourage direct search for the G1306E mutation, a hotspot for de-novo mutations. Successful therapy with the sodium channel blocker flecainide is due to stabilization of the inactivated state and special effectiveness for enlarged window currents. Our G1306E collection is the first genetically clarified case series from newborn period to adulthood and therefore helpful for counselling. PMID: 29774303 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Papadimas GK, Paraskevas GP, Zambelis T, Karagiaouris C, Bourbouli M, Bougea A, Walter MC, Schumacher NU, Krause S, Kapaki E Abstract VCP-proteinopathy is a multisystem neurodegenerative disorder caused by mutations in valosin containing protein. Here, we report the first Greek case of VCP-proteinopathy in a 62 year old patient with a slowly progressing muscular weakness since his mid-40s and a severe deterioration during the last year. He also manifested dementia with prominent neuropsychiatric symptoms, including aggression, apathy, palilalia and obsessions. Brain MRI revealed frontal atrophy, while musc...

Conclusions: In this review we will provide animal and human research data on the current clinical neurological uses for CBD individually and in combination with Δ9-THC. We will emphasize the neuroprotective, antiinflammatory, and immunomodulatory benefits of phytocannabinoids and their applications in various clinical syndromes. PMID: 29770251 [PubMed]

In this study, we aimed to develop an experimental animal model for type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) using a combination of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and high sucrose diet (HSD). Young male Wistar rats (20-30 g) were injected with MSG (2 or 4 mg/g, i.p. for 4 days). These rats were also fed an HSD, while the control group was fed a starch diet (SFD) for 150 days. Parameters assessed periodically were body weight, feed intake, blood glucose level, and oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), lipid profile, liver and kidney function tests, skeletal muscle glucose uptake, cognitive function tests, and microvascular changes using i...

Authors: Wang B, Gupta G, Singh M, Veerabhadrappa KVS, Mishra A, Chinnaboina GK Abstract The present study was designed to explore the effect of chronic administration of a new flavone [morusflavone, 5,7,4'-trihydroxy-8-(γ,γ-dimethylallyl)-2',3'-(10'-hydroxy-9',10'-dimethyl-cyclohex-8-enyl)-flavone (compound 1)] at doses of 25, 50, and 100 mg/kg, orally (p.o.) to pentylenetetrazole-induced kindling in rats (a model of human epilepsy). Compound 1 and four other compounds were isolated from the stem bark of Morus alba. The structure of compound 1 was elucidated and established using standard spectroscopic...
