Amyloid PET Positivity in Different Primary Progressive Aphasia Phenotypes

Clinical Nuclear Medicine

Mar 6, 2018

Emilie BeaufilsMaria Joao Ribeiro

Abstract

Primary progressive aphasia (PPA) is a neurological syndrome in which language functions become progressively impaired with relative sparing of memory and other instrumental functions. The pathologic causes of PPA are heterogeneous, but studies suggest that logopenic PPA (LPA) is underp...read more

Aphasia

Aphasia affects the ability to process language, including formulation and comprehension of language and speech, as well as the ability to read or write. Here is the latest research on aphasia.

Frontotemporal Lobar Degeneration

Frontotemporal lobar degeneration or frontotemporal dementia refers to a group of uncommon disorders that occur as a result of progressive nerve cell loss in the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. Here is the latest research.

Alzheimer's Disease: Neuroimaging

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. Here is the latest research on neuroimaging modalities, including magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography, in AD.

Alzheimer's Disease: Abeta

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques, which are comprised of amyloid beta. Here is the latest research in this field.

Alzheimer's Disease: APP

Amyloid precursor protein proteolysis is critical for the development of Alzheimer's disease, a neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques. Here is the latest research.

Alzheimer's Disease: Early Markers

Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. This feed focuses on early markers, as well as environmental, pharmacological, and drug-response biomarkers associated with this disease.

Familial Amyloid Neuropathies

Familial Amyloid Neuropathies (FAP) are a rare group of autosomal dominant diseases in which nerves are compromised due to protein aggregation or fibril formation of transthyretin, apolipoprotein A1, or gelsolin proteins, resulting in nervous system dysfunction. Here is the latest research.
