Arimoclomol is a small molecule that upregulates "molecular chaperones" in cells under stress. Arimoclomol extends survival by five weeks when given both pre-symptomatically and at disease onset in a mutant superoxide dismutase (SOD1) transgenic mouse model of ALS. Furthermore, it has been demonstrated to have neuroprotective and neuroregenerative effects in other rat models of nerve damage. Molecular chaperone proteins are critical in the cellular response to stress and protei...
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness worldwide. The key feature of glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve head with loss of retinal ganglion cells and local tissue remodeling. Neuronal cell death in glaucoma occurs by apoptotic mechanisms1. Apoptosis of neurons also plays a major role in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease. An association between glaucoma and these disorders has been described 2-4. Furthermore, it has been reporte...
Parkinson's disease (PD) is the most frequent neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer's disease. It is characterized by motor symptoms (rigidity, tremor, slowness of movements), and non-motor symptoms (neuropsychological, psychiatric, pain ...). Neuronal death initiates in the brainstem and extends progressively through the entire cortex. The processes leading to cell death are poorly understood. Pathological cells exhibit abnormal deposits, called Lewy bodies, which contain...
Osteoporosis is a major health problem in men and women in this country and the incidence of this disease is rising. We think that environmental factors such as nutrition may play a role in the increasing prevalence of osteoporosis. In particular, we think that a diet that is too low in protein may be contributing to bone loss. The primary purpose of this study is to compare the long-term impact of a low protein diet on measures of bone and calcium metabolism.
The investigators propose using DaTscan in patients with REM sleep behavior disorder (RBD), mild cognitive impairment (MCI), Parkinson's disease (PD), dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB), Alzheimer's disease (AD), and other neurodegenerative syndromes and disorders, to test several hypotheses - some confirmatory, and some novel. Such use will provide new data on the potential clinical and research utility of DaTscan in neurodegenerative diseases. The findings on DaTscan will be cor...
This is a feasibility study to test the efficacy of diets of different amounts of protein and calories for patients with cancer. We hypothesize that nutritional deficits play a significant role in muscle loss and that nutritional therapy is an important first step in reversing or preventing muscle loss and maintaining/improving physical function, tolerance to treatment and quality of life.
The primary objective is to demonstrate that the risk of S. aureus bacteremia (SAB) is correlated to the RNA III and SprD RNAs expression
The release of the neuropeptide calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is thought to play a causative role in migraine. Nociceptin immunoreactivity and ORL-1 mRNA have been detected in human trigeminal ganglia where it was co-localized with CGRP. It may play a role in migraine pathogenesis. We are collecting the blood samples of migraineurs for analysis of these neuropeptides.
Inflammatory bowel disease, which includes both Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis, is a disease of the gastrointestinal tract leading to symptoms of abdominal pain, diarrhea, and growth disturbance. Crohn's disease is a chronic inflammatory process that may affect any part of the gastrointestinal tract, whereas ulcerative colitis is typically present only in the colon. Children with inflammatory bowel disease frequently suffer from disturbances in growth, which may conti...
Protein-bound uremic retention solutes are increasingly recognized to play a role in the pathophysiology of the uremic syndrome. Numerous in vitro findings are indicative for their implication in the biochemical and physiological changes of uremia. Several of these protein-bound retention solutes originate from bacterial protein fermentation in the colon. p-cresyl sulfate, a fermentation metabolite of the amino acid tyrosine, is considered a prototype of this group of uremic so...
The purpose of this American Heart Association-funded and NIH-funded study is to examine circulating RNAs in the acute CHF setting, how they change with decongestive therapy, and their function in vitro and in vivo. The investigators are testing the hypothesis that ex-RNA levels change significantly during decongestion therapy and can be used as a marker of those individuals who respond to CHF therapy (in terms of cardiac structure or outcome). Additionally, the translational ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the long-term safety and tolerability of pimavanserin in adult and elderly subjects with neuropsychiatric symptoms related to neurodegenerative disease exposed to open-label pimavanserin for up to 52 weeks.
Over the last decades, changes in the diet and lifestyle have led to overall energy imbalance becoming commonplace and the emergence of an obesity epidemic with more than 1.6 billion adults being overweight. Consumption of foods that can affect appetite by increasing satiety could regulate the total energy intake and thus body weight. There is data suggesting that the macronutrient composition of the foods and especially protein content may have a potent role on satiety. ...
The purpose of this study is to see if there is a racial and/or gender difference in platelet aggregation.
The investigators examined the effects of dietary protein intake in a mixed meal at two levels of protein amount on whole body protein metabolisms in older adults.
The purpose of this study is to seeking a molecular signature of pathological radiation induced fibrosis based on the response of skin fibroblasts after irradiation, comparing two groups of patients distinguished by their individual radiosensitivity. The signature will integrate recent insights in terms of alternative splicing of mRNAs and level of expression of non-coding RNAs, particularly long non-coding RNAs, snRNAs, snoRNAs and microRNAs. In each group we will characterize...
The purpose of the study was to determine the influence of fluvastatin and atorvastatin on platelet aggregation in patients treated with aspirin and plavix after coronary stenting. We hypothezied a positive effect of fluvastatin on platelet aggregation levels.
Pycnogenol® is a proprietary bark extract of the French maritime pine tree (Pinus pinaster ssp. atlantica). Pycnogenol® has prevented pathologic symptoms such as chronic inflammation and increased platelet aggregation, a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. The endothelium is increasingly recognized not only a target (with vascular remodelling occurring in response to an injury and resulting in atherosclerosis), but also a mediator in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. ...
The aberrant expression of micro-RNAs (miRNAs) has been described in many human diseases, including schizophrenia (SZ). The previous work has indicated a strong genetic association between the miRNA-30e precursor (pre-miR-30e) and the risk of SZ. However, to date, few reports have focused on the expression level of the miR-30 family (miR-30s) and its networks of co-regulation in SZ, even in response to antipsychotic treatment. Given this, the investigator first constructed a hy...
Infertility and miscarriage ordinary events in reproductive failure in humans, as are affected one couple in every six couples of reproductive age and abortion is including in approximately 15-20% of all pregnancies. Over the decades since the beginning of Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) and in vitro fertilization (IVF) pregnancy rate still remains below 30% and Recurrent Implantation Failure in one of the most important limiting factor is the assisted reproductive techn...
Background & Aims The enteropathy in Celiac Disease (CD) is due the adaptive and to the innate immune response to gliadin peptides. Gliadin peptide P31-43 activates innate immune response and interferes with vesicular trafficking. Type 1 interferons (INFs) and viral infections play a role in CD pathogenesis. In this paper investigators investigated the role of P31-43 in the activation of the INF-α pathway. Methods Small intestinal biopsies of CD patients both with active dise...
IL-22 is an IL-10 family cytokine that plays major actions to increase intestinal epithelial barrier function and regeneration during experimental colitis. IL-22 binding protein is a small, soluble, and secreted protein potently inhibiting IL-22 actions through preventing the binding with IL-22 Recepteur. This study aims at characterizing how IL-22 binding protein is regulated in Inflammatory bowel disease to better understand the way IL-22 acts on epithelial cells during flare...
The purpose of this study is to measure the amount of a protein in the brain known as tau using an imaging procedure called Positron Emission Tomography (PET/CT). Tau has been shown to build up in the brains of patients with injury to brain cells, including Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD), Lewy body disease (DLB) and Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD).
It is important to identify patients with acute pancreatitis who are at risk for developing persistent organ failure early in the course of disease. The investigators evaluated whether peripheral blood non-coding RNAs, including microRNAs and long noncoding RNA (lncRNA), could serve as a good marker for detection of acute pancreatitis with persistent organ failure at early phase.
This is an open-label dynamic whole-body PET/CT (positron emission tomography/computed tomography) study for investigation of radiation dosimetry, plasma pharmacokinetics, biodistribution, safety and diagnostic performance of 18F-S16 in healthy volunteers and patients with neurodegenerative dementia.
