ALS: Prions

Prions are misfolded proteins which characterize several fatal neurodegenerative diseases. Prion-like mechanisms are associated with the pathogenesis of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Bacterial Meningitis

Bacterial meningitis continues to be an important cause of mortality and morbidity throughout the world. Here is the latest research.

Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy is a neurodegenerative disease belonging to the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, a group of diseases including sheep scrapie and human Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Here is the latest research.

Brain Abscess

Brain abscess is an accumulation of pus caused by inflammation and infected materials in the brain. Symptoms include fever, headache, seizures and other neurological problems. Discover the latest research on brain abscess today.

CNS Lymphatics

The CNS contains lymphatic vessels in the meninges that connect and drain the CSF into the peripheral lymphatic system. Impaired functioning of the CNS lymphatic system can be dangerous with the accumulation of toxic substances such as amyloid protein that is part of Alzheimer’s disease pathogenesis. Here is the latest research on the CNS lymphatics.

Central Nervous System Bacterial Infections

Central nervous system bacterial infections are medical emergencies and include bacterial meningitis and spinal epidural abscess. Treatment with antibiotics can reduce morbidity and mortality. Discover the latest research on central nervous system bacterial infections here.

Central Nervous System Fungal Infections

Central nervous system fungal infections are rare and typically occur in immunocompromised patients, such as those with HIV infection or transplant recipients. Discover the latest research on central nervous system fungal infections here.

Central Nervous System Parasitic Infections

Central nervous system parasitic infections can occur when parasites invade the blood-brain barrier and can also occur in immunocompromised patients. Toxoplasma gondii is a parasite that can lead to encephalitis and other neurological symptoms. Discover the latest research central nervous system parasitic infections here.

Central Nervous System Viral Diseases

Central nervous system viral diseases can cause inflammation leading to encephalitis, meningitis, or myelitis. These infections can be diagnosed by spinal tap. Discover the latest research on central nervous system viral diseases here.

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease

Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease is a fatal neurodegenerative disease caused due to aggregation and accumulation of misfolded prion proteins. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.
