Multifocal arterial wall contrast - enhancement in ischemic stroke: A mirror of systemic inflammatory response in acute stroke.
CONCLUSION: At the acute/subacute stage of stroke, a gadolinium enhancement may affect multiple asymptomatic intracranial plaques and may reflect a global inflammatory state. PMID: 31987628 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Revue Neurologique)

Serum cortisol levels in patients with a transient global amnesia.
Authors: Schneckenburger R, Hainselin M, Viader F, Eustache F, Quinette P Abstract Transient global amnesia (TGA) can be triggered by a high level of blood cortisol. We assessed whether patients had a higher level of cortisol during the TGA than shortly after. We included 52 patients, 21 with blood collected during the TGA episode and 31 shortly thereafter. We compared these two groups after adjustment for time of blood collection. The cortisol level was significantly higher in the per-ictal group (P=0.03) and negatively correlated with the time elapsed from symptom onset (P=0.005). The results are consistent with ...

Repair strategies for traumatic spinal cord injury, with special emphasis on novel biomaterial-based approaches.
Authors: Soares S, von Boxberg Y, Nothias F Abstract As a part of the central nervous system (CNS), the adult mammalian spinal cord displays only very poor ability for self-repair in response to traumatic lesions, which mostly lead to more or less severe, life-long disability. While even adult CNS neurons have a certain plastic potential, their intrinsic regenerative capacity highly varies among different neuronal populations and in the end, regeneration is almost completely inhibited due to extrinsic factors such as glial scar and cystic cavity formation, excessive and persistent inflammation, presence of various ...

What are the infectious risks with disease-modifying drugs for multiple sclerosis and how to reduce them? A review of literature.
Authors: Pourcher V Abstract Patients with multiple sclerosis taking immunosuppressive therapy may be at risk of reactivating latent pathogens, community-acquired infections, worsening asymptomatic chronic infections, and contracting de novo infections. This risk was evaluated mainly in short-term clinical trials and few studies have investigated this risk in real-life settings. In clinical practice, this infectious risk should be evaluated when a multiple sclerosis diagnosis is made in order to propose specific follow-up or immunization as soon as possible and thus avoid contraindications or risk of lowered vaccin...

Pre-symptomatic diagnosis in ALS.
Authors: Corcia P, Lumbroso S, Cazeneuve C, Mouzat K, Camu W, Vourc'h P, on Behalf the FILSLAN network Abstract Pathophysiology of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) remains partially understood even though it is accepted worldwide that motor neuron death results from a pluri-factorial process with a variable role of genetic factors. Although not distinguishable from a clinical point of view, familial forms of ALS (fALS, 10% of cases) and sporadic forms (sALS, 90% of cases) can be described. Since the identification of superoxide dismutase 1 gene (SOD1) mutations, more than 30 genes have been linked to fALS. Among...

Armand Trousseau (1801-1867), a neurologist before neurology.

A student of Pierre Bretonneau (1778-1862), the famous physician from the western French city of Tours, Trousseau carried forward Bretonneau's clinical description of infectious diseases, developing the notion of their contagion and paving the way toward the discovery of their microbial aetiology by Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) at the end of the century.

A historical approach to hereditary spastic paraplegia.
Authors: Walusinski O Abstract Hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP) is a group of rare neurological disorders, characterised by their extreme heterogeneity in both their clinical manifestations and genetic origins. Although Charles-Prosper Ollivier d'Angers (1796-1845) sketched out a suggestive description in 1827, it was Heinrich Erb (1840-1921) who described the clinical picture, in 1875, for "spastic spinal paralysis". Jean-Martin Charcot (1825-1893) began teaching the disorder as a clinical entity this same year. Adolf von Strümpell (1853-1925) recognised its hereditary nature in 1880 and Maurice ...

Mechanism of action of s1p receptor modulators in multiple sclerosis: The double requirement.
Authors: Bordet R, Camu W, De Seze J, Laplaud DA, Ouallet JC, Thouvenot E Abstract The ideal treatment for multiple sclerosis (MS) would target both the neuroinflammatory component of the disease (peripheral and central) and its neurodegenerative component, via modulation of a ubiquitous and pleiotropic common target. Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), a product of sphingosine metabolism, regulates many biological functions (including cell proliferation and survival, cell migration, the immune response and cardiovascular function) via five subtypes of receptor. These receptors are expressed in all types of brain cells ...

Organic solvent exposure as a risk factor for multiple sclerosis: An updated review.
Authors: Landtblom AM, Kristoffersson A, Boström I Abstract Organic solvents exposure has for a long time been suspected as a risk factor for developing multiple sclerosis. The evidence, containing case reports, case-control studies and cohort studies has been contradictory. An early meta-analysis, however, pointed to a doubled risk for MS. Recent major case-control studies confirm this, but also have elucidated the risk pattern, being dependent on another risk factor, i.e. smoking.

Medical management, prevention and mitigation of environmental risks factors in Neurology.
Authors: Reis J, Román GC, Giroud M, Palmer VS, Spencer PS Abstract The human environment and exposures arising therefrom are major contributors to neurological disorders ranging from stroke to neurodegenerative diseases. Reduction of exposure to environmental risk factors, with the goal of disease prevention or control, is addressed at the individual as well as the societal level and in recognition of differential subject vulnerability. We examine some practical solutions in high-income countries that may allow a better adaptation to environmental risks and reduce their adverse impact on the nervous system....

Bacterial transportable toxins of the nasopharyngeal microbiota in multiple sclerosis. Nose-to-brain direct.
Authors: Gay F Abstract Intranasal administration delivers molecules directly to the brain bypassing the blood-brain barrier. Three distinct routes of access have been identified; olfactory, trigeminal and via the paranasal sub-mucosa of the posterior sinuses. Consequently, environmental toxins may access the CNS directly to induce inflammatory and degenerative disease. They may also activate bacterial species of the nasal mucosal microbiome to release both immune-deviating cell wall antigens and transportable neurotoxins with local direct access to the CNS. Evidence is reviewed that toxins of the nasal bacterial m...

Authors: Galli S, Béreau M, Magnin E, Moulin T, Aybek S Abstract Functional movement disorders (FMD) represent a complex and disabling entity characterized by a broad range of clinical symptoms not explained by a classical neurological disease. In 2013, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) added a clinical criterion based on incongruence and inconsistency, supported by recent literature highlighting the role of "positive clinical signs". These clinical signs allow a "rule-in" procedure in making a diagnosis of FMD so that the diagnosis is no longer a "rul...

Preparations for the transfer must be made well in advance. They must aim to achieve the autonomisation of adolescents by making them responsible and providing them with the knowledge that will enable them to manage their care ...

Gene-environment interaction and Mendelian randomisation.

Environmental exposures (such as pesticides or heavy metals) and the interaction with genetic susceptibility factors (summarized in the concept of impaired xenobiotic metabolism) are believed to play a major role in the mechanisms of neurodegeneration. Beside of the classical association studies (e.g. genome-wide association studies), a novel approach to investigate environmental risk factors are Mendelian randomisation studies. This r...
