Recent studies have suggested a role for immune dysregulation behind the etiology of frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). Here, we have investigated the prevalence of immunological diseases in FTLD (N = 196) with and without the C9orf72 repeat expansion, Alzheimer's disease (AD) (N = 193) and not cognitively impaired (NCI) subjects (N = 92). The prevalence was 16.3% in FTLD, 13.5% in AD and 15.2% in NCI. Although differences between the groups did not reach statistical significance, the frequency of immunological diseases was the highest in FTLD without the C9orf72 expansion (22/117, 18.8%) and the lowest in FTLD with the expansion (6/56, 10.7%), suggesting that the C9orf72 expansion possibly influences immunological pathways in FTLD.

Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) can result in a decline in behavior, language, and motor function. Mealtime disturbances are a common and significant outcome of FTLD. Disturbances during meal...
The behavioural variant of frontotemporal dementia (bvFTD) is the most common phenotype of frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). FTLD is divided into three main pathological subtypes: tau-positive...
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) are considered part of the same pathological spectrum. There is an increased risk of ALS in patients who have had melan...
Frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD) describes a group of progressive brain disorders. The expansion of a noncoding GGGGCC (GC) hexanucleotide repeat in the C9orf72 gene is a major cause of both f...
The disruption of brain networks is characteristic of neurodegenerative dementias. However, it is controversial whether changes in connectivity reflect only the functional anatomy of disease, with sel...

Fronto-Temporal Lobar Degeneration (FTLD) is neurodegenerative disease which comes in three clinical categories: Fronto-Temporal Dementia behavioral variant (FTD), Primary Progressive Apha...
This is a 52-week, multicenter, open label trial of memantine (Namenda) for frontotemporal lobar degeneration (FTLD). The goal is to determine the safety and tolerability of this FDA-appr...
Psycho-behavioral disorders assessment is crucial for the diagnosis and follow-up of patients with frontotemporal degeneration (FTD). DAPHNE scientific staff have therefore developed a qua...
This is an observational study that aims to better understand the genetic causes of frontotemporal degeneration (FTD), Multiple Systems Atrophy (MSA), and Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (P...
The most common clinical form of FRONTOTEMPORAL LOBAR DEGENERATION, this dementia presents with personality and behavioral changes often associated with disinhibition, apathy, and lack of insight.
Heterogeneous group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by frontal and temporal lobe atrophy associated with neuronal loss, gliosis, and dementia. Patients exhibit progressive changes in social, behavioral, and/or language function. Multiple subtypes or forms are recognized based on presence or absence of TAU PROTEIN inclusions. FTLD includes three clinical syndromes: FRONTOTEMPORAL DEMENTIA, semantic dementia, and PRIMARY PROGRESSIVE NONFLUENT APHASIA.
A form of frontotemporal lobar degeneration and a progressive form of dementia characterized by motor speech impairment and AGRAMMATISM, with relative sparing of single word comprehension and semantic memory.
Diseases characterized by the presence of abnormally phosphorylated, ubiquitinated, and cleaved DNA-binding protein TDP-43 in affected brain and spinal cord. Inclusions of the pathologic protein in neurons and glia, without the presence of AMYLOID, is the major feature of these conditions, thus making these proteinopathies distinct from most other neurogenerative disorders in which protein misfolding leads to brain amyloidosis. Both frontotemporal lobar degeneration and AMYOTROPHIC LATERAL SCLEROSIS exhibit this common method of pathogenesis and thus they may represent two extremes of a continuous clinicopathological spectrum of one disease.
