ConclusionsModules of tightly regulated lipids and proteins, drivers in lipid homeostasis and innate immunity, are strongly associated with AD phenotypes.
Dear Carol: My dad, 72, has been adventurous all his life and that spirit doesn’t seem to be dampened by aging or even some health problems. He’s always loved snow skiing though thankfully he settles for just cross-country skiing on our flat trails. He still wants to ride his bike in all seasons except winter, and that scares me to death. He says this is healthy. Yes, but what if he falls doing these things? How do I convince him that he’s risking life and limb with the way he lives? His brain seems to be working fine so I’m limited in how much I can intervene, but I live in fear that he will ...

We appreciate the criticism raised by Dr. Matsuura questioning the genetic evaluation for NOP56 gene of Asidan (spinocerebellar ataxia 36) showing clinical anticipation. Asidan is an autosomal dominant neurodegenerative disorder caused by a hexanucleotide GGCCTG repeat expansion in intron 1 of the NOP56 gene, showing cerebellar ataxia, motor neuron disease phenotype, hearing loss and frontal cognitive impairment [1 –3]. The NOP56 genetic mutation in Asidan is similar to the hexanucleotide GGGGCC repeat expansion in intron 1 of the C9orf72 gene observed in familial amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/frontotemporal dementia...
