The relationship between WM lesions (WM) and Postural Instability Gait Disorders (PIGD-PD)in Parkinson's disease patients is largely unknown. We hypothesize that sub-clinical WM pathology may be a major contributing factor to PIGD-PD. We will compare two groups of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD): those with PIGD and patients with dominant tremor (n=120)to assess the role of brain WM changes.
Coronary artery disease is the first cause of death related to atherothrombosis. There is a close correlation between the extension of coronary artery disease and the severity of atherosclerotic lesions in extra coronary arterial beds. In addition, these symptomatic extracoronary lesions dramatically decrease the survival of these patients. However, scant data are available regarding the prevalence of extracoronary asymptomatic lesions. Conversely, the annual absolute risk of t...
To determine the clinical relevance of vulnerable plaque using OCT in patients with coronary bifurcation lesion.
Rapidly accumulating evidence indicates that the central nervous system (CNS) plays a pivotal role in mobility function with age-associated CNS changes strongly contributing to declining mobility. Studies linking the brain to mobility have used anatomical measures like brain volume and white matter integrity, and suggest that damage to the connecting fibers of the brain (white matter) is related to mobility impairment. Unfortunately, age-related structural white matter damage a...
Pharmacological Recruitment of Endogenous Neural Precursors to Promote Pediatric White Matter Repair: Establishing Correlations Between Visual Outcomes, Saccadic Function and MEG Oscillations in Children With Demyelinating Disorders in Comparison to Healt
The neural circuits in our brains require a layer of insulation in order to transmit signals in a rapid and efficient fashion. This insulation is called White Matter and is comprised of a specific type of brain cell called an oligodendrocytes. Damage to brain white matter occurs following injury and in disorders like Multiple Sclerosis and results in sensory, motor, and cognitive problems. Currently there are no effective medical therapies to promote brain repair and reduce dis...
White matter fiber tracking may provide a novel tool to assess the integrity of injured motor tracts in the cervical spine. It provides information about fiber directions which is not given by conventional MRI. White matter fiber tracking in the brain is used at several institutions, including our own medical college, for presurgical planning of tumor excision. We believe that the technical and clinical experience gained for the brain can be applied to fiber tracking in the cer...
As a common white matter (WM) disease in preterm neonates, punctate white matter lesion (PWML) frequently leads to the abnormalities of brain development (e.g. the motor, visual and auditory disorders), even to cerebral palsy (CP) and amblyopia during childhood. However, it is lack of certain methods in identifying the prognosis of PWML. Through using various advanced MRI techniques, neuro-behavioral and visual assessments, a multicenter longitudinal study would be conducted to...
The purpose of the study is to determine whether a new colonoscopic viewing technique called Linked color imaging(LCI) helps endoscopists detect more dysplasia lesions in ulcerative colitis patients than conventional colonoscopy using white light alone.
Animal studies have shown that thyroid hormone can improve white matter integrity after damage to myelin, which insulates and protects nerves. It is currently unknown whether this type of repair can occur in humans. The purpose of the proposed study is to examine the impact of thyroid hormone on white matter integrity in humans using two complementary, state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques: high angular diffusion imaging and multicomponent relaxometry.
Preterm and very preterm infants are at risk of developing encephalopathy of prematurity and long-term neurodevelopmental delay. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) allows the characterization of specific features of encephalopathy of prematurity, including structural changes of brain white matter and gray matter. This study wants to investigate important evidence that early repeated high-dose rhEPO(5250 IU/kg) treatment improves long-term neurological outcomes in very preterm inf...
The primary purpose of this study is to assess whether hyperbaric oxygen treatment improves neurological function in patients who exhibit white matter hyperintensities on MRI examination. The secondary goal of this study is to determine if it is possible using MRI to discern a difference in perfusion of central nervous system tissue in regions of white matter hyperintensities after hyperbaric oxygen administration as compared to hyperbaric air.
A Prospective, Randomized Clinical Study on the Effects of Casein Phosphopeptide-Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (CPP-ACP) Paste on Plaque, Gingivitis and White Spot Lesions in Orthodontic Patients - Part 2
Influence of CPP-ACP paste and Elmex Medical Gel on the prevention of white spot lesions in orthodontic patients during fixed appliances.
Background-White matter hyperintensities (WMH), patchy areas of hyperintense signal on T2-weighted or Fluid Attenuated Inversion Recovery sequences on brain magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), are believed to reflect cerebral burden of ischemic damage and are associated to incident stroke, dementia and eventually mortality in otherwise healthy subjects. Also brain atrophy has been related with presence of carotid atherosclerosis and vascular cognitive impairment. Carotid atherosc...
We hypothesize that misexpression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in the CSF of preterm infants can be used as a biomarker to predict the risk for developming white matter damage.
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an autoimmune disorder of the central nervous system. In MS, inflammation is known to attack areas of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves; resulting in disability. Current MRI technology provides an adequate view of the impact of MS on the "white matter" of the brain, which contains many of the connections between neurons. Quantification of lesions in the white matter due to MS are a standard part of clinical trials and clinical care in MS. Howev...
Revascularization of borderline coronary stenoses (40-70%) is usually driven by fractional flow reserve (FFR) which expresses the physiological significance of a lesion and tells the operator whether PCI may reduce the rate of adverse events as compared to medical therapy. Coronary stenoses with FFR value < 0.80 are indeed associated with a higher rate of adverse event and requires coronary revascularization whereas lesions with FFR > 0.80 show an excellent prognosis which cann...
The aim of GEOMETRY study is to investigate the correlation between coronary plaque geometric modifications and lesion vulnerability in patients with suspected coronary artery disease referred for cardiac computed tomography angiography (CCTA). Furthermore the study will evaluate the impact of plaque eccentricity and morphology on the rate of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) for a 2 years follow-up period.
This study will quantify changes in coronary plaque volumes and plaque composition in patients treated with evolocumab. Previous intravascular ultrasound studies have shown that treatment with a lipid-lowering PCSK9 enzyme inhibitor, such as evolocumab, to be associated with a reduction of the fatty deposits that cause plaque in the arteries, however, it is not known how evolocumab affects specific coronary plaque types and plaque inflammation. Investigators will use qu...
Research project in which patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are examined clinically and with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). To evaluate spinal cord (SC) grey and white matter changes (incl. lesions) using fast, high-resolution MRI sequences with high contrast between SC and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) as well as high contrast within the SC (grey-white matter contrast).
Coronary artery disease (CAD) remains a leading cause of death in most countries. It is well known that the reduction of cholesterol levels by statin therapy is associated with significant decreases in plaque burden. REVERSAL, ASTEROID, and more recently the SATURN II trial showed that in patients with CAD, lipid lowering with atorvastatin or rosuvastatin respectively reduced progression of coronary atherosclerosis, even causing plaque regression of some lesions. CAD clinical e...
The objective of this study is to compare the clinical outcome of NSTEMI and STEMI patients with non-obstructive, non-culprit coronary lesions and either presence or absence of vulnerable plaque characteristics as assessed by OCT.
Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system (CNS). People who have MS may have lesions that form on parts of the CNS, such as the brain. Some of these lesions may be inflamed for a long time. This causes MS to progress. There is no treatment for these lesions. Researchers believe that a drug that decreases inflammation can help. Objective: To see if a drug called anakinra can help clear inflammation in MS brain lesions. Eligibi...
