Can the administration of platelet lysates to the brain help treat neurological disorders?

Cell Mol Life Sci 2022 Jun 24;79(7):379. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

College of Biomedical Engineering, Graduate Institute of Biomedical Materials and Tissue Engineering, Taipei Medical University, 250 Wu-Xing Street, Taipei, 11031, Taiwan.

Neurodegenerative disorders of the central nervous system (CNS) and brain traumatic insults are characterized by complex overlapping pathophysiological alterations encompassing neuroinflammation, alterations of synaptic functions, oxidative stress, and progressive neurodegeneration that eventually lead to irreversible motor and cognitive dysfunctions. A single pharmacological approach is unlikely to provide a complementary set of molecular therapeutic actions suitable to resolve these complex pathologies. Recent preclinical data are providing evidence-based scientific rationales to support biotherapies based on administering neurotrophic factors and extracellular vesicles present in the lysates of human platelets collected from healthy donors to the brain.

Disease Modeling of Neurodegenerative Disorders Using Direct Neural Reprogramming.

Cell Reprogram 2022 Jun 24. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Faculty of Pharmacy, Université de Montréal, Montreal, Canada.

Understanding the pathophysiology of CNS-associated neurological diseases has been hampered by the inaccessibility of patient brain tissue to perform live analyses at the molecular level. To this end, neural cells obtained by differentiation of patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are considerably helpful, especially in the context of monogenic-based disorders. More recently, the use of direct reprogramming to convert somatic cells to neural cells has emerged as an alternative to iPSCs to generate neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes. Read More

[Atypical Parkinson's syndrome in old age].

Z Gerontol Geriatr 2022 Jun 24. Epub 2022 Jun 24.

Klinikum Nürnberg, Paracelsus Medizinische Privatuniversität, Breslauerstr. 201, 90471, Nürnberg, Deutschland.

Atypical Parkinson syndromes represent a neuropathologically heterogeneous group and include the clinical entities dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), multiple system atrophy (MSA), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), and corticobasal degeneration (CBD). The DLB and MSA are characterized by deposition of the protein alpha-synuclein (synucleinopathy), PSP and CBD are characterized by deposition of tau protein, often in the form of neurofibrillary tangles in nerve and glial cells (tauopathy). Misfolding and aggregation of the aforementioned proteins causes degeneration of the affected cell populations but the disease also spreads to anatomically neighboring brain regions, thus contributing to disease progression.
