Natural History Study of Synucleinopathies

-synuclein is a small protein of 140 amino acids that is highly expressed in the brain. It's function remains poorly understood.10 Synucleinopathies are a group of neurodegenerative diseases associated with the abnormal accumulation of -synuclein within cytoplasmic inclusions in neurons or oligodendroglia. These -synuclein containing cytoplasmic aggregates occur throughout the ...

Phase N/A

Chromatic Pupillometry to Assess the Melanopsin-Light Pathway in Progressive Supranuclear Palsy

In 1963, Richardson, Steele and Olszewski published a landmark clinical report on 8 cases of supranuclear ophthalmoplegia, pseudobulbar palsy, nuchal dystonia and dementia and established the syndrome of heterogeneous system degeneration as a clinicopathological entity now known as PSP. The disease has a characteristic onset in the sixth decade (range ...

Phase N/A

Biomarkers of Synaptic Damage in Multiple Sclerosis

Blood and cerebrospinal fluid samples will be subjected to the procedures required for the isolation of the different components immediately after the withdrawal. Subsequently, the levels of microRNAs, cytokines, chemokines, cell growth factors, neuronal damage markers (tau, phosphorylated and truncated tau, neurofilaments) and mitochondrial (lactate) and free d-amino acids (Objective ...

Phase N/A

Alzheimer's Disease Genetics Study

The purpose of the Alzheimer's Disease Genetics Study is to help identify the genes that may be responsible for causing Alzheimer's Disease (AD) by collecting genetic material from families with multiple members diagnosed with AD. Qualifying families will have two living blood-related individuals who have been diagnosed with or are ...

Phase N/A

Prediction of Cognitive Decline by Neuroimaging Techniques and the Application in Diagnosis and Treatment of Preclinical AD

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia, which severely injures multiple domains of cognitive functions in the aging people, bringing heavy burden to the society and families. Studying the cognitive brain damage mechanism of subjective cognitive decline (SCD), the preclinical stage of AD, would provide great opportunities ...

Phase N/A

A Study of Brain Aging in Vietnam War Veterans

The overall long-term goal of this project is to prevent AD, which affects almost 50% of the US population over 85 years of age, and is the most common cause of dementia. Clinical signs and symptoms of AD include cognitive impairments, especially memory and emotional disturbances. In order to accomplish ...

Phase N/A

Early Identification of Markers in Alzheimer's Families / ALFA

The natural history of AD includes an asymptomatic or preclinical phase characterized by pathological cerebral alterations without any evident symptoms of the disease. The beginning of the preclinical phase can be detected using a series of biological and neuroimaging markers that indicate the presence of A deposition in the brain. ...

Phase N/A

Retinoic Acid Homeostasis in Neuropsychiatric Diseases

Retinoids comprise of a group of small-molecule derivatives of Vitamin A with retinoic acid (RA) representing the biologically most active endogenous form. RA has multiple functions central nervous system (CNS). It is hypothesized, that local RA homeostasis is functionally involved in the pathophysiology of numerous neuropsychiatric diseases.

Phase N/A

DL-3-n-butylphthalide Treatment in Patients With Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease Already Receiving Donepezil

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the commonest cause of dementia. There is no effective treatment to cure the disease. Cholinesterase inhibitors, such as donepezil, are widely recommended to patients with mild to moderate AD. But the cognitive function of most of the patients using donepezil gradually aggravate, with Mini-Mental State Examination(MMSE) ...

BEAM: Brain-Eye Amyloid Memory Study

Retinal correlations with neurodegeneration: Retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) pattern will differ in participants in the MCI and early stages of LBD spectrum, AD, and VCI, relative to normal elders. i) RNFL thinning around the optic disc and macular thinning will correlate with hippocampal atrophy and with the cortical thickness ...
