Summary of "Mitochondrial superclusters influence age of onset of Parkinson's disease in a gender specific manner in the Cypriot population: A case-control study."

Despite evidence supporting an involvement of mitochondrial dysfunction in the pathogenesis of some neurodegenerative disorders, there are inconsistent findings concerning mitochondrial haplogroups and their association to neurodegenerative disorders, including idiopathic Parkinson's disease (PD).

Absence of association of the Ala58Val (rs17571) CTSD gene variant with Parkinson's disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis in a Han Chinese population.

Parkinson's disease (PD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Alzheimer's disease (AD) are neurodegenerative diseases that may share genetic risk factors. The exon variant Aal58Val (rs17571) in CT...

Modeling the genetic complexity of Parkinson's disease by targeted genome edition in iPS cells.

Patient-specific iPSC are being intensively exploited as experimental disease models. Even for late-onset diseases of complex genetic influence, such as Parkinson's disease (PD), the use of iPSC-based...

Modulation of mitochondrial dynamics by treadmill training to improve gait and mitochondrial deficiency in a rat model of Parkinson's disease.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive degenerative central nervous system disorder that particularly impairs motor function. As PD advances, gait disorders become more pronounced and are often dif...

Evaluation of RNA Blood Biomarkers in Individuals at Risk of Parkinson's Disease.

Substantial progress has been made in the discovery of blood biomarkers for Parkinson's disease (PD), a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects more than 4 million worldwide. Olfactory dysf...

Prevalence, Duration and Severity of Parkinson's Disease in Germany: A Combined Meta-Analysis from Literature Data and Outpatient Samples.

Epidemiological data on the prevalence of Parkinson's disease (PD) in Germany are limited. The aims of this study were to estimate the age- and gender-specific prevalence of PD in Germany as well as t...

Development of Imaging, Clinical and Biochemical Bio-Markers for Parkinson's Disease

We propose to build on preliminary data evaluating non-dopaminergic/non-motor clinical biomarkers to more fully assess these markers at the threshold of Parkinson disease (PD). Developmen...

A Study Into the Underlying Biochemical Pathways Involved in Parkinson's Disease, Such as Mitochondrial (Cellular "Powerhouse") Dysfunction

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a progressive neurological disorder that is increasingly common with age, with the incidence rising from approximately 4 people per 10,000 in their forties to 2...

Phase III Trial of Coenzyme Q10 in Mitochondrial Disease

Our central hypothesis is that oral CoQ10 is a safe and effective treatment for children with inborn errors of mitochondrial energy metabolism due to defects in specific respiratory chain ...

A Trial of MitoQ for the Treatment of People With Parkinson's Disease

In Parkinson's Disease, the mitochondrial membranes in cells that produce dopamine become damaged by oxidants, leading to the death of these cells and progressive tremor, slowness of movem...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Parkinsonism following encephalitis, historically seen as a sequella of encephalitis lethargica (Von Economo Encephalitis). The early age of onset, the rapid progression of symptoms followed by stabilization, and the presence of a variety of other neurological disorders (e.g., sociopathic behavior; TICS; MUSCLE SPASMS; oculogyric crises; hyperphagia; and bizarre movements) distinguish this condition from primary PARKINSON DISEASE. Pathologic features include neuronal loss and gliosis concentrated in the MESENCEPHALON; SUBTHALAMUS; and HYPOTHALAMUS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p754)

A marked difference between the individual’s expressed/experienced gender and the gender others would assign him or her, and it must continue for at least six months. (from DSM-5)

Rheumatoid arthritis of children occurring in three major subtypes defined by the symptoms present during the first six months following onset: systemic-onset (Still's Disease, Juvenile-Onset), polyarticular-onset, and pauciarticular-onset. Adult-onset cases of Still's disease (STILL'S DISEASE, ADULT-ONSET) are also known. Only one subtype of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (polyarticular-onset, rheumatoid factor-positive) clinically resembles adult rheumatoid arthritis and is considered its childhood equivalent.

Proteins associated with sporadic or familial cases of PARKINSON DISEASE.

A selective, irreversible inhibitor of Type B monoamine oxidase. It is used in newly diagnosed patients with Parkinson's disease. It may slow progression of the clinical disease and delay the requirement for levodopa therapy. It also may be given with levodopa upon onset of disability. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p385) The compound without isomeric designation is Deprenyl.
