The involvement of ventral hippocampal microglial cells, but not cannabinoid CB1 receptors, in morphine-induced analgesia in rats.

Acta Neurol Belg 2019 Apr 20. Epub 2019 Apr 20.

Department of Animal Biology, School of Biology, College of Science, University of Tehran, 4155-6455, Tehran, Iran.

It is well known that glial cells are involved in pain processing. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the possible involvement of the ventral hippocampal (VH) glial cells in morphine-induced analgesia. A tail-flick apparatus was used to measure pain sensitivity in male Wistar rats that were bilaterally cannulated in the VH by stereotaxic surgery. Read More

Acta Neurol Belg 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Academic Department of Neurosciences, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, NHS Trust, Sheffield, UK.

Nocebo refers to the adverse events (AEs) experienced when taking a placebo drug and is believed to be a centrally mediated process. We sought to examine the AEs following placebo administration in Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs) for Myasthenia Gravis (MG) patients. A systematic literature search was performed on Medline and Web of Science for RCTs for MG pharmacological treatments. Read More

Effects of resveratrol in the signaling of neuropathic pain involving P2X3 in the dorsal root ganglion of rats.

Acta Neurol Belg 2019 Apr 15. Epub 2019 Apr 15.

Department of Pharmaceutics, the First Affiliated Hospital of Xinxiang Medical University, No. 88 Jiankang Road, Weihui, 453100, Henan, People's Republic of China.

Neuropathic pain is a major public health problem because it has a considerable impact on life quality of patients. Neuropathic pain caused by a lesion or disease of the somatosensory nervous system, which causes unpleasant and abnormal sensation (dysesthesia), an increased response to painful stimuli (hyperalgesia), and pain in response to a stimulus that does not normally provoke pain (allodynia). P2X receptors from dorsal root ganglion (DRG) play a crucial role in facilitating pain transmission at peripheral and spinal sites. Read More

Acta Neurol Belg 2019 Apr 9. Epub 2019 Apr 9.

Department of Nephrology, University of Health Sciences Kartal Dr Lütfi Kırdar Training and Research Hospital, Istanbul, Turkey.

Fabry Disease (FD) is an X-linked lysosomal storage disease that emerges as a result of the mutations in the galactosidase A gene encoding alpha-galactosidase. The peripheral nervous system (PNS) involvement manifests itself as acroparesthetic complaints due to the small-fiber involvement. Our goal was to assess the PNS involvement of 14 patients with FD both clinically and electrophysiologically besides the other systemic features. Read More

Department of Nuclear Medicine, Vali-Asr Hospital, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, 1419731351, Iran.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) are not always conclusive for the detection of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). Tc-HMPAO-labeled platelets may be useful in cases with high clinical suspicion. Three patients with headaches with or without intraparenchymal hemorrhage that were highly suspected to have CVST, despite inconclusive anatomical imaging, were selected for inclusion in the study.

Department of Medicine and Surgery, Section of Neurology, Azienda Ospedaliero-Universitaria, Via Gramsci, 14, 43126, Parma, Italy.

Brain amyloid deposition is one of the main hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and two approaches are available for assessing amyloid pathology in vivo: cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers levels and amyloid load visualized by amyloid beta positron emission tomography imaging (Amy-PET) probes. We aimed to investigate the concordance between CSF biomarkers and Amy-PET in a memory clinic cohort. Moreover, using a proper clinical follow-up, we wanted to assess the diagnostic accuracy of CSF and PET biomarkers in predicting the progression of patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to AD dementia.

Predictive value of laboratory parameters in childhood migraine.

Acta Neurol Belg 2019 Mar 6. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Department of Family Medicine, Medical School of Adiyaman University, Adiyaman, Turkey.

Migraine is a neurovascular disease characterized by inflammation of the cerebral and extra cerebral vessels and appears in the form of attacks. Although the pathophysiology of migraine is not fully known, the data obtained because of long-term studies reliably support the presence of a potential relationship between migraine pathogenesis and platelet biology. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of migraine on MPV and other blood parameters as well as the relationship between the hematologic parameters and characteristics of the headache and whether they possess diagnostic value as inflammation and platelet biology play a fundamental role in the disorder.

Dynamic thiol/disulphide homeostasis in children with neurofibromatosis type 1 and tuberous sclerosis.

Acta Neurol Belg 2019 Feb 28. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Pediatric Neurology, Cukurova University Faculty of Medicine, Adana, Turkey.

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) and tuberous sclerosis (TSC) are autosomal dominant neurocutaneous diseases. Epilepsy, malignancy and other neurological complications are common in both diseases. We aimed to investigate the thiol/disulphide balance as an oxidative stress marker in children who suffer from NF1 and TSC. Read More

MicroRNAs in contusion spinal cord injury: pathophysiology and clinical utility.

Acta Neurol Belg 2019 Mar 21;119(1):21-27. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Peking University Third Hospital, 49 North Garden Road, Beijing, 100191, People's Republic of China.

Spinal cord injury (SCI) in humans is a common central nervous system trauma. Pathophysiologically, SCI involves both primary and secondary damages. Therapeutically, targeting secondary damage including inflammation, neuropathic pain, apoptosis, demyelination, and glial reaction to promote functional benefits for SCI patients has long been considered a potential treatment strategy by neuroscientists and clinicians.

Retinal vascular density evaluation of migraine patients with and without aura and association with white matter hyperintensities.

Acta Neurol Belg 2019 Feb 14. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, Faculty of Medicine, Konya Research Hospital, Başkent University, 42000, Konya, Turkey.

Underlying pathophysiological mechanism of migraine is not all clear; however, recent reports suggested that neurovascular system is involved. We aimed to evaluate the retinal vessel densities of migraine patients with and without aura and the associations with white matter hyperintensities (WMH), using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). We recruited 28 migraine with aura (MWA) patients, 26 migraine without aura (MWO) and age and sex-matched 34 healthy controls in our study. Read More
