Functional effects of cardiac sympathetic denervation in neurogenic orthostatic hypotension

Parkinsonism & Related Disorders

Jun 3, 2008

Richard ImrichD S Goldstein

Abstract

Diseases characterized by neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (NOH), such as Parkinson disease (PD) and pure autonomic failure (PAF), are associated with cardiac sympathetic denervation, as reflected by low myocardial concentrations of 6-[(18)F]fluorodopamine-derived radioactivity. We st...read more

Olivopontocerebellar Atrophy

Olivopontocerebellar atrophy (OPCA) refers to neurodegeneration of the inferior olivary nucleus, pons, and the cerebellum, and is characterized by cerebellar ataxia and other neurological problems. Here is the latest research.

Parkinson's Disease: Biomarkers

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects movement. This feed focuses on genomic and drug-response biomarkers in Parkinson’s disease.

Multiple System Atrophy

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare neurodegenerative disorder which affects the body’s autonomic functions, including breathing and muscle control. Discover the latest research on MSA here.

Movement Disorders

Movement disorders are a group of nervous system disorders that increase or decrease voluntary or involuntary movements. Here is the latest research on genetic and environmental factors, as well as mechanisms that underlie movement disorders.

GPCRs in Blood Pressure Regulation

Blood pressure is tightly regulated by blood vessel radius, which is established by hormones and/or peptides binding to GPCRs (G-protein-coupled receptors). Discover the latest research on GPCRs in blood pressure regulation here

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd) is a progressive respiratory disease associated with increasing morbidity and mortality worldwide.

Shy-Drager Syndrome

Shy-Drager Syndrome is a progressive disorder of the central and sympathetic nervous systems characterized by symptoms of autonomic nervous system failure, impaired speech, difficulties breathing and swallowing, and anhidrosis. Here is the latest research.

Neurodegeneration: Progranulin & Lipids

Progranulin is a secreted growth factor involved in inflammation, wound healing, cancer, and for its neurotrophic properties. Along with lipids (fats), these molcules are associated with neurodegenerative processes. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to these molecules and neurodegeneration.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
