    Neuroinflammation in bipolar disorders

    Georgios D. Kotzalidis , Elisa Ambrosi , Alessio Simonetti , Ilaria Cuomo , Antonio Del Casale , Matteo Caloro , Valeria Savoja , Chiara Rapinesi
    Recent literature based on peripheral immunity findings speculated that neuroinflammation, with its connection to microglial activation, is linked to bipolar disorder. The endorsement of the neuroinflammatory hypotheses of bipolar disorder requires the demonstration of causality, which requires... Read more

    The role of neuroinflammation in juvenile bipolar disorder

    Giulia Serra , Lavinia De Chiara , Ciro Marangoni , Gianni L. Faedda
    A pathophysiological relationship has been reported between inflammatory processes, decreased levels of neurotrophins, increased oxidative stress and psychiatric disorders in both juvenile and adult ages. Moreover, this relationship remains unclear in juvenile bipolar disorder (BD). We performed... Read more

    The role of anti-glutamic acid decarboxylase autoantibodies in mood disorders

    Marco Liguori , Mirko Manchia , Leonardo Tondo
    Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) possibly plays a causative role in mood disorders. This hypothesis originated with studies on the beneficial effect of valproate in mania and as a mood stabilizer. Since valproate is known for its action in increasing the level of GABA, it was indirectly suggested... Read more

    George A Alexiou , Amalia Kallinteri , Euaggelos Michos , Panagiota Zagorianakou , Efthalia Priavali , Dimitrios Pachatouridis , Stamatina Levidiotou , Spyridon Voulgaris
    High-grade gliomas are the most common type of brain tumors. Of these, glioblastoma account for 60-70% and despite treatment carries a dismal prognosis. Postoperative surgical site infection has been associated with prolonged survival. Herewith, we present a case of glioblastoma and a case of... Read more

    A potential role of karyopherin a2 in the impaired maturation of dendritic cells observed in glioblastoma patients

    Konstantinos Gousias , Alexander von Ruecker , Gerrit H Gielen , Pitt Niehusmann , Andreas Waha , Hartmut Vatter , Matthias Simon
    Aim: Patients with glioblastomas demonstrate well-documented immunological impairments including decreased numbers of mature dendritic cells (DCs). Recent data identified karyopherin a2 (KPNA2), a nucleocytoplasmic shuttling receptor, as diagnostic and prognostic biomarker for gliomas. The aim of... Read more

    Influence of chlorpyrifos oxon on the development and progression of Alzheimer's disease in amyloid precursor protein transgenic mice

    Jin Yu , Hong Zhu , Aruna Bhat , Hanaa El-Sayed , Tatyana Gudz , Sebastiano Gattoni-Celli , Mark S Kindy
    Aim: Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a devastating neurological disorder and the most common form of dementia. Until date, the cause of AD eludes us, but a number of hypotheses have been put forward to try and understand the mechanisms involved. A series of studies have indicated that environmental...

    Central somatosensory conduction slowing in adults with isolated elevated plasma level of homocysteine

    Jin Jun Luo , Favio Bumanlag , Ramin Ansari , Ya-Mei Tang , Nae J Dun
    Aim: Elevated plasma level of homocysteine (eHcy) is a recognized risk factor for dementia. However, whether the central conduction is affected in patients with an isolated eHcy is unknown. In this study, we addressed whether central conduction is altered in adults with eHcy. Methods: Evoked... Read more

    Multiple autoimmune antibody limbic encephalitis: a case in a pregnant woman

    Meha Goyal , Kasey L Gildersleeve , Stuart L Tomko , Joseph S Kass
    Autoimmune limbic encephalitis is most commonly associated with antibodies against the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR), among other neuronal cell surface receptors. Here, a case of a pregnant female with limbic encephalitis in the presence of multiple additional autoimmune antibodies is... Read more
