Neurological Involvement in Primary Systemic Vasculitis

Neurological Involvement in Primary Systemic Vasculitis Shanshan Zhang1, Dongli Yuan2 and Ge Tan1* 1Department of Neurology, The First Affiliated Hospital of Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China 2The Institute of Medical Information, Chongqing Medical University, Chongqing, China Primary systemic vasculitis can affect every structure in both the central and peripheral nervous system, causing varied neurological manifestations of neurological dysfunction. Early recognition of the underlying causes of the neurological symptoms can facilitate timely treatment and improve the prognosis. This review highlights the clinical manifestations of primary systemic vasculitis in the nervous system. Introduction Primary systemic vasculitis (PSV) can be defined as a heterogeneous group of uncommon diseases characterized by blood vessel inflammation and necrosis. Unlike secondary systemic vasculitis, which usually results from infections, connective tissue diseases, neoplasms, and drugs, PSV is considered to occur with no identified etiology (1). Nevertheless, recent researches have demonstrated that PSV might be associated with farming (2), silica exposure (2, 3), solvent exposure and hydrocarbons (2, 4, 5), allergy and family history of atopy (2, 6). Despite of unknown causes, two mechanisms, deposition of immune complexes and cell-mediated immunity, were found to possibly participate in the pathophysiology of PSV by causing immunological inflammation and necrosis...

This study was aimed to evaluate the antidiabetic, dermatoprotective, neuroprotective and antioxidant activities of n-butanol extracts from leaves and flowers of Chrysanthemum fontanesii. β-carotene-linoleic acid, Galvinoxyl radical (GOR), ABTS, hydroxyl radical, reducing power, CUPRAC, O-phenanthroline and metal chelating assays were used to evaluate antioxidant capacity of the extracts. The extracts showed good antioxidant activity and were a good source of phenolics and flavonoids. The enzyme inhibitory activity of the extracts was investigated against key enzymes involved in neurodegenerative [acetylcholinesterase...

Authors: Bor-Seng-Shu E, Paschoal FM, Almeida KJ, De Lima Oliveira M, Nogueira RC, Teixeira MJ, Walter U Abstract Substantia nigra (SN) hyperechogenicity has been proved to be a characteristic finding for idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD), occurring in more than 90% of the patients. This echofeature is owed to increased amounts of iron in the SN region and reflects a functional impairment of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic system. In a prospective blinded study in which a group of patients with early mild signs and symptoms of unclear Parkinsonism were followed until a definite clinical diagnosis of PD, the hypere...
