Abstract

Progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML) is a rare fatal demyelinating disease of the central nervous system caused by reactivation of the JC virus (JCV), which is named after the initials of the patient from whom the virus was first isolated. JCV is highly prevalent worldwide, ...read more

Spinocerebellar & Related Ataxias

Spinocerebellar ataxias (SCA) are hereditary and characterized by cerebellar degeneration, which affects muscle coordination and balance. Discover the latest research on SCA and related ataxias here.

Precision Medicine

Precision medicine is a medical model that proposes the customization of healthcare, with medical decisions, treatments, practices, or products being tailored to the patient traits and specific molecular features of disease processes. In this model, diagnostic testing is often employed for selecting appropriate and optimal therapies based on the context of a patient’s genetic content or other molecular or cellular analysis. Tools employed in precision medicine can include molecular diagnostics, imaging, and analytics

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML)

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy (PML) occurs due to JC virus infection. While most adults are infected, PML emerges in individuals with weakened immune systems. Here is the latest on PML.

Hereditary Demyelinating Diseases Of The CNS

Hereditary demyelinating diseases of the central nervous systems are caused primarily due to inherited genetic conditions. Examples include Alexander, Canavan, and Pelizaeus-Merzbacher diseases. Here is the latest research.

Canavan Disease

Canavan disease is an autosomal recessive degenerative disorder that causes progressive damage to nerve cells in the brain, and is one of the most common degenerative cerebral diseases of infancy. Discover the latest research on Canavan disease here.
