ConclusionBoth TTR ‐ and AL‐CA can accompany severe AS. Parameters solely based on ECG and echocardiography allow for the identification of the majority of CA‐AS. In the present cohort, CA did not significantly worsen prognosis 15.3 months after TAVR.

Routine blood testing was normal except for increased levels of thyroid peroxidase autoantibody (TPOAb) and thyroglobulin autoantibody (TGAb). Orbital computed tomography revealed fusiform thickening of the rectus muscles belly, with tendon sparing, as in thyroid eye disease. Rectus muscle biopsy revealed isolated amyloidosis. Further workup sho...

AMPK activation does not enhance autophagy in neurons in contrast to MTORC1 inhibition: different impact on β-amyloid clearance. Autophagy. 2020 Feb 20;:1-16 Authors: Benito-Cuesta I, Ordóñez-Gutiérrez L, Wandosell F Abstract The physiological AKT-MTORC1 and AMPK signaling pathways are considered key nodes in the regulation of anabolism-catabolism, and particularly of macroautophagy/autophagy. Indeed, it is reported that these are altered processes in neurodegenerative proteinopathies such as Alzheimer disease (AD), mainly characterized by deposits of β-amyloid (Aβ)...
