Inclusion body myopathy (IBM) with Paget's disease of bone (PDB) and frontotemporal dementia (IBMPFD) presents with multiple symptoms and an unknown etiology. Valosin-containing protein (VCP) has been identified as the main causative gene of IBMPFD. However, no studies on neurofilament light chain (NFL) as a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) marker of axonal neurodegeneration or on YKL-40 as a CSF marker of glial neuroinflammation have been conducted in IBMPFD patients with VCP mutations. A 65-year-old man presented with progressive muscle atrophy and weakness of all limbs, non-fluent aphasia, and changes in personality and behavi...

Today's open access research materials present a statistical exercise that uses broad epidemiological data to determine the impact of individual lifestyle choices and environmental factors to the incidence of dementia. The results are not declaring that, say, particulate air pollution is responsible for 2% of dementias. Rather if the statistics point out that particulate air pollution is associated with 2% of cases, smoking with 5%, and hearing loss with 8%, then one starts to see priorities in the choices that people should be making to better manage their health over the long term. Summing all of the impacts toget...

Chronic inflammation in brain tissue is an important component of the progression of neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's disease. It is important enough that some researchers propose inflammation resulting from persistent infection and cellular senescence to be the primary mechanism in Alzheimer's disease, and the characteristic accumulation of amyloid-β deposits only a side-effect. Given the failure to achieve meaningful benefits in patients through removal of amyloid-β, researchers are turning their eyes towards ways to suppress inflammatory signaling in the brain. Removal of senescent cells, the s...

AbstractBackgroundEmerging evidence suggests that multicomponent exercise provides greater benefits for physical and cognitive function than single component exercise. However, few studies have been conducted to determine these effects in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and findings have been less conclusive. It has been reported that older women have a greater risk of falls and a higher incidence of dementia than men.ObjectivesTo examine the effects of multicomponent exercise on cognitive performance and fall risk in older women with MCI.DesignAn experimental design comparing the exercise and control gro...
