This study shows that CA are released from periventricular and subpial regions to the cerebrospinal fluid and are present in the cervical lymph nodes, into which cerebrospinal fluid drains through the meningeal lymphatic system. We also show that CA can be phagocytosed by macrophages. We conclude that CA can act as containers that remove waste products from the brain and may be involved in a mechanism that cleans the brain. Moreover, we postulate that CA may contribute in some autoimmune brain diseases, exporting brain substances that interact with the immune system, and hypothesize that CA may contain brain markers that m...

What are the current trends and hot topics in neurology? The increasing insights into the genetics and molecular bases of neurological disorders open new perspectives for specific and personalized treatments. This is evidenced most dramatically by the antisense therapy for spinal muscular atrophy. Promising neurological research currently targets neurodegenerative diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Duchenne muscular atrophy, or Huntington’s disease. Likewise, brain-machine interfaces and neuroprosthetics offer huge potential. Never before has it been more important and more exc...

In conclusion, T2D impairs vascular function by dysregulated autophagy. Therefore, autophagy could be a potential target for overcoming diabetic microvascular complications. To What Degree Does Loss of Skeletal Muscle with Age Contribute to Immunosenescence? https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2019/11/to-what-degree-does-loss-of-skeletal-muscle-with-age-contribute-to-immunosenescence/ Sarcopenia, the progressive loss of muscle mass and strength, is characteristic of aging. A perhaps surprisingly large fraction of the losses can be averted by strength training, but there are nonetheless inexorable process...

Researchers here note a signature of blood-brain barrier dysfunction that is common in many forms of damage and injury to the brain, suggesting it to be more broadly relevant to pathology than suspected. There is already good evidence for dysfunction of the blood-brain barrier to be an early feature of neurodegenerative diseases. The specialized cells of the blood-brain barrier line blood vessels that pass through the central nervous system, managing the passage of molecules and cells. When the barrier fails, unwanted molecules such as fibrogen can enter the brain to cause inflammation - and chronic inflammation in the bra...

Authors: Kivisäkk P, Khoury SJ Abstract Inflammation plays an important role in the onset and progression of many neurological diseases. As the central nervous system (CNS) constitutes a highly specialized environment where immune activation can be detrimental, it is crucial to understand mechanisms by which the immune system is regulated during neurological diseases. The system of co-signaling pathways provides the immune system with the means to fine-tune immune responses by turning on and off immune cell activation. Studies of co-signaling molecules in neurological diseases and their animal models have high...

Conclusions: This study suggests that orthotic treatment is needed with high frequency in a mixed inpatient neurorehabilitation cohort. In terms of service planning, these data support existing the recommendation that neurological rehabilitation centres should have good access to orthotic services.Implications for rehabilitationCustom orthoses such as AFOs and KAFOs are frequently needed by neurological rehabilitation inpatients.Orthoses may facilitate standing and walking at an earlier stage during rehabilitation.Those responsible for neurological rehabilitation services should ensure appropriate access to orthotic servic...

Publication date: Available online 18 November 2019Source: The Lancet NeurologyAuthor(s): John F Cryan, Kenneth J O'Riordan, Kiran Sandhu, Veronica Peterson, Timothy G DinanSummaryResearch into the role of the gut microbiome in modulating brain function has rapidly increased over the past 10 years, albeit chiefly in animal models. Increasing clinical and preclinical evidence implicates the microbiome as a possible key susceptibility factor for neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, autism spectrum disorder, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and stroke. Cross-sectional clinical studies are bolstering ...

Discussion: Our results suggest that a tele-health-based approach is both feasible and efficient in providing rehabilitation care to CNDs from clinic to home. Increasing and maintaining participation as well as autonomy in daily routine are promising findings that open up scenarios for the continuity of care at home through DH-care for CNDs.

We read the ESPEN guideline on clinical nutrition in neurology by Burgos et  al. with great interest [1]. This guideline offers 88 recommendations for use in clinical practice for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, stroke and multiple sclerosis. In this guideline, the Clinical Question number 17 is as ‘‘When and how should patients with Parkinson's dis ease be screened for dysphagia?’’. As an answer to this question, in Recommendation number 24 they recommended to screen dysphagia in all patients with Parkinson's disease with a Hoehn&Yahr ‘‘stage above II’...

Conclusions There is weak evidence for a positive effect of short-term whole-body vibration training on spasticity of lower limbs, mobility, balance, and postural control. Besides, positive effect of the long-term effect of whole-body vibration training on mobility in patients with neurological disorders. The optimal whole-body vibration training parameters in treating patients with neurological disorders remain unclear.
