Post-traumatic stress disorder is associated with further increased Parkinson's disease risk in veterans with traumatic brain injury - White DL, Kunik ME, Yu H, Lin HL, Richardson PA, Moore S, Sarwar AI, Marsh L, Jorge RE.

OBJECTIVE: Determining if traumatic brain injury (TBI) and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are risk factors for Parkinson's disease (PD). This constitutes a research priority for the Veterans Administration (VA) with implications for screening policy ...

Authors: Argyrou A Abstract Protein folding is considered strongly linked with genetics. The deeper understanding of the mechanisms that allow the folding of proteins is expected to lead to advances in the pharmaceutical sector. The shape of a protein dictates its biological activity, and any exceptions from its natural form can lead to diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and many others. The recent advances in the research of protein folding include computational models for the prediction of protein folding with enough accuracy. In order to understand the process of protein misfolding, a synopsis of the pro...

Authors: Salis C, Papageorgiou L, Papakonstantinou E, Hagidimitriou M, Vlachakis D Abstract Neurodegenerative diseases lead to the death of nerve cells in the brain or the spinal cord. A wide range of diseases are included within the group of neurodegenerative disorders, with the most common ones being dementia, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's diseases. Millions of older people are suffering from such pathologies. The global increase of life expectancy unavoidably leads to a consequent increase in the number of people who will be at some degree affected by neurodegenerative-related diseases. At this moment, there is n...

This article is about "kinesia paradoxa," a phenomenon presented in Parkinson's disease patients who generally suffer from bradykinesia and freezing of gait (FOG) but under certain circumstances exhibit a sudden, brief period of mobility. The objective of this paper was to identify the mechanisms causing this phenomenon, record possible brain circuits involved, and try to locate interconnections between these circuits. Moreover, we are proposing various modeling schemes in order to form the appropriate conditions for experimental design. PMID: 32468533 [PubMed - in process]
