In this study, proteomics and metabolomics were integrated to describe the dysregulated metabolites and proteins of AF patients relative to sinus rhythm (SR) patients. Totally 47 up-regulated and 41 down-regulated proteins in valvular AF, and 59 up-regulated and 149 down-regulated proteins in non-valvular AF were recognized in comparison to SR patients. Moreover, 58 up-regulated and 49 significantly down-regulated metabolites in valvular AF, and 47 up-regulated and 122 down-regulated metabolites in persistent non-valvular AF patients were identified in comparison to SR patients. Based on analysis of differential levels of ...

AbstractNeurofilament light chain is part of the neuroaxonal cytoskeleton and upon disease-related neuroaxonal damage, it is released to the extracellular space and, based on modern highly sensitive assays, can also be detected in the peripheral blood. Thus, neurofilament light chain in the blood  is an emerging marker of neurological disease, including age-related conditions, such as neurodegenerative but also neurovascular diseases. Recently, blood neurofilament light chain has been shown to serve as a potentially interesting marker of disease burden and prognostication also in cerebral s mall-vessel disease, a cond...

[UCT] Training a pool of neurologists in sub-Saharan Africa is an important step towards Africanising the vital discipline of neuroscience on the continent. In addition, it will help to facilitate inter- and cross-disciplinary research and accelerate treatment options for common neurological disorders like stroke and epilepsy, and neurological infections such as tuberculous meningitis (TBM) and HIV-related dementia.

Clin Neuropsychol. 2021 Nov 18:1-33. doi: 10.1080/13854046.2021.2002934. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe purpose of this study was to investigate the demographic characteristics, academic training and types of professional activities of clinical neuropsychologists in Canada.282 participants completed an online-based survey.Respondents were women for the most part and had a mean age of 43 years. They typically had doctoral-level training (85%) and about one-quarter had postdoctoral training (23%). Nearly half (47%) had a lifespan practice, over one-third (37%) had an adults-only practice, and about one-sixth (16%) had an ...

CONCLUSIONS: In elderly patients with LV systolic dysfunction, the incidence of LTCI requirement was more common than that for community-dwelling people; its risk factors did not include LVEF, but included many other non-cardiac comorbidities and therapies, suggesting the need for interdisciplinary cooperation to prevent disabilities.PMID:34789610 | DOI:10.1253/circj.CJ-21-0580
