Autonomic uprising: the tilt table test in autonomic medicine.

Clin Auton Res 2019 Apr 5;29(2):215-230. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

Clinical Neurocardiology Section, Clinical Neurosciences Program, Division of Intramural Research, National Institute of Neurological, Disorders and Stroke, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, 20892, USA.

This perspective piece on head-up tilt table testing is part of a series on autonomic function testing. The tilt table can be a useful diagnostic test, but methodologies vary, and the results are sometimes misinterpreted. The intent here is not to review comprehensively the utility of various tilt table testing protocols but to convey a number of general points that may give perspective and have practical clinical value, based on an understanding of autonomic physiology and our long clinical and research experience in the evaluation of autonomic disorders.

Induced pluripotent stem cells for disease modeling, cell therapy and drug discovery in genetic autonomic disorders: a review.

Clin Auton Res 2019 Jan 10. Epub 2019 Jan 10.

Center for Molecular Medicine, University of Georgia, Athens, GA, USA.

The autonomic nervous system (ANS) regulates all organs in the body independent of consciousness, and is thus essential for maintaining homeostasis of the entire organism. Diseases of the ANS can arise due to environmental insults such as injury, toxins/drugs and infections or due to genetic lesions. Human studies and animal models have been instrumental to understanding connectivity and regulation of the ANS and its disorders. Read More

Skin nerve α-synuclein deposits in Parkinson's disease and other synucleinopathies: a review.

Authors:
Vincenzo Donadio

Clin Auton Res 2018 Nov 30. Epub 2018 Nov 30.

IRCCS Istituto Delle Scienze Neurologiche di Bologna (Italy), UOC Clinica Neurologica, Via Altura 3, 40139, Bologna, Italy.

Purpose: The in vivo diagnosis of synucleinopathies is an important research aim since clinical diagnostic criteria show low accuracy. The skin innervation, especially the autonomic subdivision, is a useful region to search for abnormal α-syn aggregates in synucleinopathies since the peripheral sympathetic nerves can be the earliest-affected neural region and autonomic symptoms may precede the classical symptoms of these disorders.

Methods: The major advantages of skin biopsy as an in vivo diagnostic tool for synucleinopathies are that it is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform technique requiring only limited facilities, and that it is repeatable in long-term studies as it causes only minor discomfort to the patient.

The renin-angiotensin system in cardiovascular autonomic control: recent developments and clinical implications.

Clin Auton Res 2019 Apr 9;29(2):231-243. Epub 2018 Nov 9.

Department of Neural and Behavioral Sciences, Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine, 500 University Drive, Mail Code H109, Hershey, PA, 17033, USA.

Complex and bidirectional interactions between the renin-angiotensin system (RAS) and autonomic nervous system have been well established for cardiovascular regulation under both physiological and pathophysiological conditions. Most research to date has focused on deleterious effects of components of the vasoconstrictor arm of the RAS on cardiovascular autonomic control, such as renin, angiotensin II, and aldosterone. The recent discovery of prorenin and the prorenin receptor have further increased our understanding of RAS interactions in autonomic brain regions. Read More

Sympathetic activation by lower body negative pressure decreases kidney perfusion without inducing hypoxia in healthy humans.

Clin Auton Res 2018 Nov 2. Epub 2018 Nov 2.

Department of Internal Medicine, Academic Medical Center at the University of Amsterdam, Meibergdreef 9, 1105AZ, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Purpose: There is ample evidence that systemic sympathetic neural activity contributes to the progression of chronic kidney disease, possibly by limiting renal blood flow and thereby inducing renal hypoxia. Up to now there have been no direct observations of this mechanism in humans. We studied the effects of systemic sympathetic activation elicited by a lower body negative pressure (LBNP) on renal blood flow (RBF) and renal oxygenation in healthy humans. Read More

Substantial renal conversion of L-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine (droxidopa) to norepinephrine in patients with neurogenic orthostatic hypotension.

Clin Auton Res 2019 Feb 18;29(1):113-117. Epub 2018 Sep 18.

Clinical Neurocardiology Section, CNP/DIR/NINDS/NIH, Bethesda, MD, 20892, USA.

Background: The pressor effect of L-threo-3,4-dihydroxyphenylserine (L-DOPS, droxidopa, Northera™) results from conversion of L-DOPS to norepinephrine (NE) in cells expressing L-aromatic-amino-acid decarboxylase (LAAAD). After L-DOPS administration the increase in systemic plasma NE is too small to explain the increase in blood pressure. Renal proximal tubular cells abundantly express LAAAD. Read More

Autonomic regulation during sleep and wakefulness: a review with implications for defining the pathophysiology of neurological disorders.

Clin Auton Res 2018 Dec 28;28(6):509-518. Epub 2018 Aug 28.

Department of Biobehavioral Health Science, Sleep Neurobiology Laboratory, University of Illinois at Chicago College of Nursing, 845 South Damen Ave, Room 750 (MC 802), Chicago, IL, 60612, USA.

Cardiovascular and respiratory parameters change during sleep and wakefulness. This observation underscores an important, albeit incompletely understood, role for the central nervous system in the differential regulation of autonomic functions. Understanding sleep/wake-dependent sympathetic modulations provides insights into diseases involving autonomic dysfunction. Read More

Does resistance training modulate cardiac autonomic control? A systematic review and meta-analysis.

Clin Auton Res 2019 Feb 23;29(1):75-103. Epub 2018 Aug 23.

Centre for Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Sciences, Jamia Millia Islamia (A Central University), New Delhi, 110025, India.

Purpose: To systematically evaluate the literature on the effects of resistance training (RT) on cardiac autonomic control in healthy and diseased individuals.

Methods: Electronic databases Pubmed, PEDro, and Scopus were systematically searched from their inception up to June 2018. Randomized controlled trials, quasi-experimental trials, and cross-over controlled trials investigating the effect of RT (of at least 4 weeks duration) on cardiac autonomic control assessed either by linear or non-linear measures of heart rate variability (HRV), baroreflex sensitivity, or post-exercise heart rate recovery were included.

Heart rate variability in Parkinson disease and idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder.

Clin Auton Res 2018 Dec 20;28(6):557-564. Epub 2018 Aug 20.

Department of Neurology, Hospital de Egas Moniz, Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Ocidental (CHLO), Rua da Junqueira, 126, 1349-019, Lisbon, Portugal.

Purpose: Heart rate variability, a marker of autonomic function modulation, is known to be blunted in Parkinson disease, although data remains conflicting and a putative modifying role of REM sleep behavior disorder persists unclarified.

Methods: We assessed ten patients with idiopathic REM sleep behavior disorder patients, 18 patients with Parkinson disease and REM behavior disorder and eight patients with Parkinson disease without REM sleep behavior disorder. Heart rate variability analysis was performed in 5-min epochs selected from wake, Non-REM and REM polysomnography records. Read More

Abnormal venous postural control: multiple sclerosis-specific change related to gray matter pathology or age-related neurodegenerative phenomena?

Clin Auton Res 2018 Aug 17. Epub 2018 Aug 17.

Department of Neurology, Buffalo Neuroimaging Analysis Center, Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, University at Buffalo, State University of New York, 100 High Street, Buffalo, NY, 142013, USA.

Background: Autonomic nervous system dysfunction has been previously observed in multiple sclerosis (MS) patients.

Objective: To assess associations between magnetic resonance imaging-detected neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative pathology and postural venous flow changes indicative of autonomic nervous system function.

Methods: We used a standardized 3T magnetic resonance imaging protocol to scan 138 patients with MS and 49 healthy controls. Read More
