Deep Brain Stimulation Selection Criteria for Parkinson's Disease: Time to Go beyond CAPSIT-PD.

J Clin Med 2020 Dec 4;9(12). Epub 2020 Dec 4.

Neurosciences Research Centre, Molecular and Clinical Sciences Research Institute, St George's University of London, London SW17 0RE, UK.

Despite being introduced in clinical practice more than 20 years ago, selection criteria for deep brain stimulation (DBS) in Parkinson's disease (PD) rely on a document published in 1999 called 'Core Assessment Program for Surgical Interventional Therapies in Parkinson's Disease'. These criteria are useful in supporting the selection of candidates. However, they are both restrictive and out-of-date, because the knowledge on PD progression and phenotyping has massively evolved.

One-pot preparation of double network hydrogels via enzyme-mediated polymerization and post-self-assembly for wound healing.

J Mater Chem B 2019 10;7(40):6195-6201

Collaborative Innovation Center of Henan Province for Green Manufacturing of Fine Chemicals, Key Laboratory of Green Chemical Media and Reactions, Ministry of Education, Henan Engineering Laboratory of Chemical Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Materials, School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Henan Normal University, Xinxiang, Henan 453007, P. R. China.

Hybrid hydrogels combining polymers and low-molecular-weight gelators (LMWGs) are promising soft materials. Self-assembled LMWG-based supramolecular networks via noncovalent interactions exhibit excellent reversible thixotropy, which are usually incorporated into polymer gel networks generating functional double network hybrid hydrogels. In this study, we used enzyme-mediated polymerization and post-self-assembly for the one-pot preparation of LMWG-based hybrid hydrogels which consist of a covalently cross-linked polyacrylamide as the first chemical network and post-self-assembled DBS-COOH as the second supramolecular network.

Tremor habituation to deep brain stimulation: Underlying mechanisms and solutions.

Mov Disord 2019 12 21;34(12):1761-1773. Epub 2019 Aug 21.

Radboud University Medical Centre, Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour, Department of Neurology, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

DBS of the ventral intermediate nucleus is an extremely effective treatment for essential tremor, although a waning benefit is observed after a variable time in a variable proportion of patients (ranging from 0% to 73%), a concept historically defined as "tolerance." Tolerance is currently an established concept in the medical community, although there is debate on its real existence. In fact, very few publications have actually addressed the problem, thus making tolerance a typical example of science based on "eminence rather than evidence. Read More

Impairment of brain functions in Parkinson's disease reflected by alterations in neural connectivity in EEG studies: A viewpoint.

Clin Neurophysiol 2019 02 3;130(2):239-247. Epub 2018 Dec 3.

Masaryk University, Central European Institute of Technology (CEITEC), Brain and Mind Research Programme, and Movement Disorders Centre, Brno, Czech Republic. Electronic address:

Clinical symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD) are accompanied by pathological phenomena detected locally in the basal ganglia (BG) as changes in local field potentials (LFPs) and also in cortical regions by electroencephalography (EEG). The literature published mainly between 2000 and 2017 was reviewed with an emphasis on approaches emerging after 2000, in particular on oscillatory dynamics, connectivity studies, and deep brain stimulation. Eighty-five articles were reviewed. Read More

Patient's lived experience with DBS between medical research and care: some legal implications.

Med Health Care Philos 2019 Sep;22(3):375-386

CNRS/Université de Nantes UMR 6297 Droit et Changement Social, Faculté de Droit et de sciences politiques, Université de Nantes, Chemin de la Censive du Tertre, Nantes, France.

In the past 50 years, an ethical-legal boundary has been drawn between treatment and research. It is based on the reasoning that the two activities pursue different purposes. Treatment is aimed at achieving optimal therapeutic benefits for the individual patient, whereas the goal of scientific research is to increase knowledge, in the public interest. Read More
