Biomarkers as aids to diagnosis, prognosis, and effective therapies have become holy grails of translational neuroscience. In neurodegenerative disorders, especially Alzheimer disease (AD), imaging and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers for the amyloid-β (Aβ) protein and tau have found their place in research and clinical trials, enabling much more ...

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an important critical neurologic illness that requires neurocritical care. Traumatic brain injury is an active disease process in which primarily injured tissue manifests as brain hemorrhage and subsequent edema, which can lead to elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). For many years, secondary brain ischemia ...

Biomarkers are molecules that can be measured in accessible biological fluids that reflect physiological, pharmacological, or disease processes and can suggest the etiology of, susceptibility to, activity levels of, or progress of a disease. Biomarkers have historically been critical to patient progress in a broad range of clinical ...

Importance  Combined oxygen 15–labeled positron emission tomography (15O PET) and brain tissue oximetry have demonstrated increased oxygen diffusion gradients in hypoxic regions after traumatic brain injury (TBI). These data are consistent with microvascular ischemia and are supported by pathologic studies showing widespread microvascular collapse, perivascular ...

A man in his late 40s presented with cognitive decline characterized by gradually increasing difficulty expressing his thoughts and ideas. His family noted word-finding difficulty, especially with the names of people, but no problems with his memory for recent events. Initial workup findings were unremarkable, but during the ...

To the Editor Fernández-Espejo and colleagues1 describe a patient with retained covert awareness who had a sharp reduction of behavioral command following.

In Reply We thank Latronico for the comments regarding our article.1 Latronico proposed that peripheral nervous system and muscle pathology2 may have contributed to the lack of behavioral responses exhibited by our patient. As mentioned in our Discussion section, Shea and Bayne3 had previously argued ...

In 2005, based on a review of 17 placebo-controlled trials of second-generation antipsychotics (APs) (olanzapine, aripiprazole, risperidone, and quetiapine fumarate), the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) suggested that the use of atypical APs carries a 1.6- to 1.7-times higher incidence of mortality in elderly, demented people.1...

Transient ischemic attack (TIA) and stroke prediction scores have been a topic of both clinical and research interest for decades. The goal of these scores is to identify high-risk patients for both prognostic and clinical management purposes. There are several TIA and stroke prediction scores that aim to ...

The nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson disease (PD) are well recognized and are thought to often precede the overt manifestations of the motor symptoms.1 Among the cutaneous manifestations of PD, hyperhidrosis, facial flushing, and seborrheic dermatitis are well recognized, and hyperhidrosis and facial flushing are generally considered manifestations ...
