Increased risk of melanoma in C9ORF72 repeat expansion carriers: A case ‐control study
AbstractIntroductionAmyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) are considered part of the same pathological spectrum. There is an increased risk of ALS in patients who have had melanoma. The risk of FTLD in melanoma (or cancer) patients is unknown. We aimed to study ifC9ORF72 expansion is linked to a higher prevalence of melanoma.MethodsWe selected patients with a diagnosis in the ALS ‐FTLD spectrum who were tested for pathogenic mutations. Medical history was reviewed, to identify those with pathologically documented melanomas.ResultsWe included 189 patients. 62 had identified patho...

Effects of treadmill training on microvascular remodeling in the rat following spinal cord injury
AbstractIntroductionThe morphological characteristics of skeletal muscles innervated caudal to a spinal cord injury (SCI) undergo dramatic phenotypic and microvascular changes.MethodFemale Sprague Dawley rats received a severe contusion at thoracic level 9/10, and were randomly assigned to locomotor training (TR), epidural stimulation (ES) or a combination of the treatment groups (CB). Fibre type composition and capillary distribution were assessed in phenotypically distinct compartments of the tibialis anterior.ResultsSCI induced a shift in Type II fibre phenotype from oxidative to glycolytic (P
