ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate whether the presynaptic dopamine neuronal depletion in different striatal subregions predicts future development of wearing-off (WO) in Parkinson′s disease (PD) patients.Methods:A retrospective longitudinal study included 57 PD patients who were referred to the Department of Neurology of Xinhua Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine from January 2019 to September 2020, and completed 11C-2β-carbomethoxy-3β-(4-fluorophenyl) tropane dopamine transporter (DAT) positron emission tomography scans at the initial evaluation and received dopaminergic drugs for at least 12 months during follow-up. The time of starting dopaminergic drug treatment and the occurrence of WO were recorded. After adjusting for clinical related factors, the predictive value of DAT uptake and related parameters in striatal subregions for WO was evaluated by Cox proportional hazards model. Results:During a median follow-up period of 23 months, 10 patients (18.18%) developed WO. Patients with WO exhibited less DAT uptake in the caudate nucleus and anterior putamen nucleus (0.66±0.52 vs 1.08±0.42, t=2.76, P=0.008 and 0.66±0.20 vs 0.87±0.28, t=2.27, P=0.027 respectively), especially in these subregions contralateral to the less-affected side of the body, compared to those without WO. Cox proportional hazard models revealed that after adjusting for gender, age, course of disease, baseline Unified Parkinson′s Disease Rating Scale Ⅲ score and increment of levodopa equivalent dosage, the lower the DAT uptake of the caudate ipsilateral to the less-affected side of the body ( HR=0.20, 95% CI 0.07-0.63, P=0.006), as well as the lower the DAT uptake of the caudate nucleus and posterior putamen nucleus ( HR=0.28, 95% CI 0.11-0.69, P=0.006 and HR=0.08, 95% CI 0.01-0.64, P=0.018 respectively) and the higher the ratio of putamen/caudate contralateral to the less-affected side of the body ( HR=2.33, 95% CI 1.02-5.33, P=0.045), the higher the risk of WO. Conclusion:The presynaptic dopamine neuronal loss, particularly bilateral caudate nucleus dopaminergic depletion at the early stage, has predictive value of development of WO in PD.

ABSTRACT

Circadian rhythm disorder of blood pressure is a common abnormal form of blood pressure in Parkinson′s disease, including abnormal circadian blood pressure pattern, nocturnal hypertension, increased blood pressure variability and awakening hypotension. The pathogenesis of circadian rhythm disorder of blood pressure in Parkinson′s disease is complex, which involves the disruption of circadian rhythm, cardiovascular dysfunction, abnormal hormone secretion and the disorders of sleep-wake cycle and structure. At the same time, it is affected by many factors such as circadian activity rhythm, emotion, anti-Parkinson′s disease drugs and so on. Studies have shown that the circadian rhythm disturbance of blood pressure is closely related to the clinical phenotypes, progression and prognosis of Parkinson′s disease. Therefore, it is suggested to enhance the screening and intervention of circadian rhythm disorders of blood pressure to optimize treatment and improve quality of life in Parkinson′s disease.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To investigate the clinical and electrophysiological characteristics of tremor in patients with epilepsy, and explore the related factors affecting the occurrence of tremor.Methods:A cross-sectional survey was conducted to collect 80 patients with epilepsy in the Department of Neurology, Xinhua Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine from September 2018 to September 2019. Patients were divided into tremor group and non-tremor group according to clinical evaluation. All patients with epilepsy were evaluated by the Clinical Rating Scale for Tremor and were examined by electromyography (EMG).Results:There were 22 (27.5%, 22/80) patients who were found with tremor by self-reported complaint and (or) physical examination by clinicians, mainly manifested as postural tremor in the upper limbs, and 7.5% (6/80) patients also showed resting tremor. The EMG examination revealed that 51 patients (63.8%, 51/80) had tremor in the upper limbs. The incidence was 2.3 times as much as clinical evaluation. Among them, 42 patients (82.3%, 42/51) manifested postural tremor in upper limbs, 32 patients (62.7%, 32/51) manifested resting tremor. The peak frequency of postural tremor was (7.2±4.1) Hz, and synchronous burst pattern was mainly showed. The peak frequency of resting tremor was (5.3±2.2) Hz, and alternating burst pattern was mainly showed. Multivariate analysis showed that large number of medications and long duration of taking valproate acid were significantly related to the occurrence of tremor in patients with epilepsy.Conclusions:Tremor is mainly manifested as postural tremor in the upper limbs in patients with epilepsy. The EMG is a more sensitive and objective examination, which can detect tremor that was not yet noticed. Large number of medications and long duration of taking valproate acid might be the mainly associated factors for occurrence of tremor in patients with epilepsy.

ABSTRACT

Objective:To identify and quantify spatiotemporal and kinematic gait parameters in a group of early-stage Parkinson′s disease (PD) patients compared with healthy subjects.Methods:Eight patients with PD (PD group, Hoehn-Yahr stage≤2.5) and seven age-matched healthy subjects (control group) were enrolled from the Department of Neurology, Xinhua Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine between May 2017 and August 2018 for the study. The spatiotemporal and kinematic gait parameters were obtained by Vicon 3D optical motion analysis system under three conditions: single-task walking, dual-task walking and turning. The linear mixed model was used to compare the gait parameters between the two groups and analyze the interactive effects.Results:Arm swing amplitude in the PD group was lower than that in the control group ((0.63±0.15) m vs (0.89±0.27) m in single-task walking, (0.64±0.16) m vs (0.99±0.22) m in dual-task walking, β=-0.353, 95% CI -0.558--0.148, P=0.002). The PD group showed significantly higher arm swing asymmetry than the control group (12.48%±5.48% vs 6.96%±4.39% in single-task walking, 17.13%±4.05% vs 7.67%±5.23% in dual-task walking, β=8.992, 95% CI 4.148-13.836, P=0.001). A notable interactive effect of groups and task factors in arm swing asymmetry was found. The arm swing asymmetry of the PD group increased more than the control group in dual-task walking than in single-task walking (β=3.916, 95% CI 1.367-6.466, P=0.003). As for the gait characteristics of the lower limbs, stride length and step length of the PD group were lower than those of the control group ((1.10±0.17) m vs (1.31±0.10) m in stride length, β=-0.169, 95% CI -0.300--0.038, P=0.015; (0.55±0.09) m vs (0.65±0.04) m in step length, β=-0.081, 95% CI -0.150--0.013, P=0.023). For both groups, statistically significant differences were not observed in step width, stride length and step length between single-task and dual-task walking ( P>0.05). The PD group completed the turning process faster than the control group ((1.66±0.30) s vs (1.37±0.23) s, β=0.302, 95% CI 0.049-0.555, P=0.023). As for the rotation-onset pattern, no statistically significant differences were found between the PD and the control group for the onset of the head, trunk and pelvic rotation ( P>0.05). Participants started to rotate their heads before the pelvis in all groups (β=-0.060, 95% CI-0.107--0.014, P=0.011). Conclusions:The quantified gait parameters can more accurately reflect the gait characteristics of early PD. Patients with PD exhibited smaller arm swing magnitude, greater arm swing asymmetry, shorter stride length, and slower turning speed compared to the controls. Arm swing asymmetry further differs between subjects with early PD and controls under dual-task walking.

ABSTRACT

Parkinson′s disease (PD) is the common progressive neurodegenerative disorder affecting older adults. Alterations of the circadian system occur in PD patients. However, the molecular mechanisms and pathophysiological process remain elusive. Circadian rhythm is modulated by both internal and external factors and using bright light and melatonin as chronotherapeutic tools may be potential therapies to improve symptoms of PD in the future. This article reviewed the abnormal changes of circadian parameters in clinical symptoms of PD and the possible mechanisms of circadian rhythm to provide basis for exploring the therapeutic strategies of circadian rhythm in PD.

ABSTRACT

Impulsive control disorders in Parkinson′s disease refer to a heterogeneous group of disorders that involve pleasurable behaviors performed repetitively, excessively, and compulsively. All these disorders are the failure to resist an impulse or temptation to control an act or specific behavior, which is ultimately harmful to oneself or others. The major symptoms of impulsive control disorders in Parkinson′s disease include pathological gambling, compulsive buying, binge eating and hypersexualtiy. The mechanism of impulse control disorders in Parkinson′s disease may be based on genetic and neural circuit, dopaminergic receptors, and neurotransmitters. Therefore, the identification and intervention of controllable factors should be emphasized in clinical diagnosis and treatment. Impulse control disorder questionnaire and functional imaging are helpful for the clinical diagnosis and evaluation of impulse control disorders in Parkinson′s disease. Patient education and individualized treatment are key points in clinical management for impulse control disorders in Parkinson′s disease. Meanwhile, exploring the gene-brain function network of impulse control disorders in Parkinson′s disease is important.

ABSTRACT

Ocular symptoms and signs related to Parkinson′s disease are a kind of clinical syndromes caused by pathological changes in the visual pathway, including abnormal eye movements and visual disorders. The syndromes appear in the early stages of the disease, associated with many factors, such as the course of the disease and the use of therapeutic drugs for Parkinson′s disease. Optical coherence tomography, video eye tracker, magnetic resonance imaging and evaluation scales can be used to examine ocular symptoms and signs of Parkinson′s disease. The eye symptoms and signs make the Parkinson′s syndromes present a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations. Early identification of these syndromes can help to diagnose Parkinson′s disease and to predict disease progression and prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective To analyze the characteristic changes of macular thickness in patients with Parkinson's disease by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT),and find out the association between macular thickness and disease progression,cognitive dysfunction,visuospatial impairment and asymmetry of motor symptoms.Methods Seventy-one Parkinson's disease (PD) patients who were admitted to the Department of Neurology,Xinhua Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine from January 2016 to May 2018 and sixty-one healthy controls who volunteered to participate for the same period were enrolled and underwent SD-OCT examination.The macular thickness of all retinal quadrant segments,foveal thickness,and macular volume between the two groups were comparatively analyzed.Associations between macular measurements and clinical parameters such as disease duration,Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale part Ⅲ (UPDRS-Ⅲ) scores,Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) total scores,and visuospatial subscores were analyzed using generalized estimated equation fitted with linear regression models.Results Mean macular thickness in the PD group was significantly reduced compared with those in the control group ((261.94± 12.90) μm vs (270.96± 10.71) μm,B=-8.135,P<0.01).All quadrants of macular thickness (except fovea and 1 mm central zone) in the PD group were reduced compared with those in the control group.Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis revealed that inner superior thickness could predict the presence of PD with an area under ROC of 0.727 (95%CI 0.662-0.792,P<0.01).UPDRS-Ⅲ scores were negatively correlated with foveal thickness (B=-9.132,P=0.034),1 mm central zone thickness (B=6.963,P=0.036) and all quadrants of the inner ring (superior (B=-7.727,P<0.01),inferior (B=-5.169,P=0.044),nasal (B=-5.960,P<0.01) and temporal (B=-5.905,P<0.01)) macular thickness.The disease duration had no relationship with any quadrant of macular measurements.No statistically significant difference was found between the macula parameters of the hemiretinae corresponding to more and less severely affected cerebral hemisphere.MoCA total scores were positively correlated with all quadrants of the inner ring (superior (B=2.693,P=0.007),inferior (B=3.391,P=0.002),nasal (B=2.609,P=0.001) and temporal (B=2.115,P=0.013)) macular thickness.MoCA visuospatial subscores were positively associated with average macular thickness (B=4.368,P=0.042),macular volume (B=0.161,P=0.004),inferior (B=8.582,6.541),nasal (B=8.130,6.017) and temporal (B=5.938,5.316)quadrants of outer and inner rings macular thickness (all P<0.05).Conclusions In PD patients,the macular thickness and macular volume were decreased.Asymmetry was not identified between hemiretinae in PD.Some quadrants of macular thickness were associated with disease progression,cognitive dysfunction,and visuospatial impairment.

ABSTRACT

Objective To observe the proliferation ability of cocultured dendritic cells(DCs)loaded with tumor antigen and cytokine-induced killer cells( CIKs)and its killing effect on hepatocarcinoma cells HepG2. Methods The antigen of hepatocarcinoma cells HepG2 was prepared by repeated freezing and thawing of liquid nitrogen. Peripheral blood mononuclear cells(PBMNCs)were isolated from healthy donors by blood cell separator,then DCs and CIKs were induced. Ag-DCs were obtained by impinging DCs with tumor antigens. CIKs were divided into three groups:the first group was CIKs alone,the second group was mixed in the propor-tion of DCs : CIKs = 1 : 5,and the third group was mixed in the proportion of Ag-DCs : CIKs = 1 : 5. The three groups of cells were recorded as CIK group,DC-CIK group and Ag-DC-CIK group. The proliferation and cell phenotype of the three groups of cells were observed and the killing effects on hepatocarcinoma cells HepG2 were detected by methyl thiazolyl tetrazolium(MTT)assay. Results The proliferation multiples of the three groups of cells were gradually increased with the prolongation of culture time,and the proliferation rates of Ag-DC-CIK on the 9th day(61. 32 ± 1. 72),the 12th day(190. 83 ± 3. 53)and the 15th day(399. 09 ± 5. 60) were significantly higher than those of CIK group(22. 47 ± 2. 07,55. 91 ± 1. 81,83. 20 ± 2. 34)and DC-CIK group(40. 26 ±2. 49,125. 03 ±4. 16,251. 55 ±3. 25),and the difference between the three group was statisti-cally significant(F =185. 78,P =0. 033;F = 297. 35,P = 0. 018;F = 455. 37,P < 0. 001),in addition,the differences between each two groups were statistically significant(all P <0. 05). The cytotoxicity of Ag-DC-CIK to HepG2 cells at the effective target ratios of 5 : 1(31. 71% ±0. 29% ),10 : 1(42. 43% ±1. 86% )and 20 : 1 (57. 69% ±1. 11% )were significantly higher than those of CIK group(12. 11% ±1. 14% ,21. 30% ±0. 52% , 30. 71% ±1. 26% )and DC-CIK group(20. 06% ± 0. 67% ,29. 89% ± 1. 37% ,39. 11% ± 0. 92% ),and the difference between the three group was statistically significant(F =159. 64,P =0. 037;F =199. 36,P =0. 025;F =302. 08,P <0. 001),in addition,the differences between each two groups were statistically significant(all P <0. 05). On the 15th day of cell culture,the flow cytometry analysis showed that all the three groups were expressed CD3 + CD8 + ,CD3 + CD56 + double positive cells,the contents of CD3 + CD8 + 、CD3 + CD56 + double positive cells in the Ag-DC-CIK group(88. 12% ± 1. 24% ,61. 35% ± 2. 63% )were significantly higher than those in the CIK group(54. 37% ± 3. 08% ,18. 22% ± 1. 83% )and DC-CIK group(69. 80% ± 1. 46% , 39. 51% ±2. 17% ),and the difference between the three group was statistically significant(F = 414. 32,P <0. 001;F =378. 60,P <0. 001),in addition,the differences between each two groups were statistically signifi-cant(all P <0. 001). Conclusion The proliferation ability and killing effect of Ag-DC-CIK that obtained from antigen-pulsed DCs co-cultured with CIKs are significantly higher than those of CIKs and DC-CIKs.

ABSTRACT

Dyskinesia is one kind of motor complications caused by prolonged administration of levodopa to patients affected by Parkinson's disease. The mechanisms of dyskinesia in Parkinson's disease are still unknown. Recent research suggests the prevalence of dyskinesia mainly depends on genetic factors, levodopa therapy,clinical subtype, body weight and gender. Accumulating evidence indicates that assessment scales, functional magnetic resonance imaging and biomarkers could improve the clinical diagnosis and assessment of dyskinesia. In addition, a number of clinical trials of dyskinesia have indicated that new drugs such as an extended-release formulation of adamantine, and physical therapy such as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation are beneficial to the treatment of dyskinesia.

Objective To evaluate the olfactory function and its influence factors by using Sniffin ’ Sticks test, and to compare the quality of Parkinson ’s disease (PD) recognition between Sniffin’ Sticks and 16 kinds of odor identification in Sniffin ’ Sticks(SS-16) tests.Methods The Sniffin’Sticks test was used to assess the olfactory function of 68 PD patients and 76 healthy volunteers , and the relationship between smell and age, disease duration, Unified Parkinson’ s Disease Rating Scale score, Hoehn-Yahr (H-Y) rating, and cognitive function level (Montreal Cognitive Assessment) was analyzed.Results (1)The prevalence of olfactory dysfunction in PD group (83.3%) was significantly higher than that in control group (21.2%).The Sniffin’ Sticks test showed that the odor threshold score (6.6 ±3.2, P=0.000), odor discrimination score (6.6 ±3.3, P=0.000), 16 kinds of odor identification score (6.8 ±2.4, P=0.000) in PD group were significantly lower than those in control group.( 2 ) When comparing the PD cases and healthy controls in recognition , the sensitivity and the specificity of the Sniffin ’ Sticks test were 0.897 and 0.737, respectively, similar to the SS-16 test.However, the Sniffin’ Sticks test showed advantage compared with odor threshold and odor discrimination.( 3 ) The olfactory score in PD group was positively correlated with cognitive function (r=0.243, P=0.046), and was unrelated with age, gender, disease duration, and disease severity.The olfactory score in control group was negatively correlated with age (r=-0.270, P=0.018), but positively correlated with cognitive function (r=0.281, P=0.014).Conclusions There is a higher incidence of olfactory dysfunction in PD patients than in control group.Sniffin’ Sticks test is superior to SS-16 test in quantitative and qualitative analysis of olfactory function in PD patients.Two tests both have high sensitivity and specificity in the recognition of PD .

ABSTRACT

Objective To investigate the current statues of anticoagulation therapy for ischemic stroke patients with atrial fibrillation(AF) and compared the difference with guidelines.Methods Three hundred and fifty-eight patients with cerebral infarction and atrial fibrillation in Xinhua Hospital Affiliated to Shanghai Jiaotong University from Jan.2008 to Jun.2012 were selected as our subjects.The data related to the antithrombotic therapy were collected and analyzed.Results Among patients with ischemic stroke,the rate of preexisting AF was 70.9% (254/358),and warfarin taken rate was 4.3% (11/254) before stroke onset.Of warfarin taken patients,INR were less than 1.5.Of all out hospitalized patients,20.9% (68/326) were treated with warfarin therapy.There were the negative correlation between warfarin usage and HAS-BLED score,MRS score,antiplatelet drugs (OR =-1.974,-0.725,-4.170,P < 0.05 or P < 0.01).Among patients with warfarin usage in hospital,33.8% of subjects (23/68) still remain on warfarin even out of hospital.The medium dosage was 2.5 mg (1.25-3.75 mg),and INR was controlled at ranged of 1.5-3.1.Periods of warfarin therapeutic range (TTR) was (61.6 ± 21.2)%.Conclusion The anticoagulation treatment rate and INR were lower in patients cerebral infarction with atrial fibrillation.Warfar might no be universal use due to the bleeding concerns and un-onvenience of monitoring INR.

ABSTRACT

Objective To detect the effect of ox‐LDL on self‐renewal and Oct‐4 express of MSCs in vitro .Methods MSCs cul‐tured in vitro were divided into 4 groups :blank control(no reagents in culture system ) ,ox‐LDL (1 ,5 ,10 ,20 μg/mL ox‐LDL were added into culture system) ,ox‐LDL+NAC(corresponding ox‐LDL were added into culture system after NAC treatment ) ,negative control(corresponding nLDL were added into culture system ) .Growth curve were drawn at different time ,Oct‐4 ,a stem cell special marker ,were detected by real‐time PCR ,the production of ROS (reactive oxygen species ,ROS) in culture system were measured with electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy .Results proliferation of MSCs was inhibited by ox‐LDL ,when concentration of ox‐LDL was more than 5μg/mL ;apoptosis of MSCs appeared as well as attenuated expression of Bcl‐2 ,ox‐LDL generated a signifi‐cant amount of ROS in the culture system ,which was completely prevented by NAC .Conclusion The proliferation and Oct‐4 ex‐pression of MSCs were inhibited by ox‐LDL ,which may be related to increase of ROS in culture system .

ABSTRACT

Objective To derive a questionnaire to assess the risk of developing motor complications through a 3-year prospective investigation on 71 patients of Parkinson' s disease (PD) in the out clinic at our hospital.Methods Three years after the first assessment,71 PD out patients were reassessed using various scales,including Unified Parkinson Disease Rating Scale,Hoehn-Yahr grade,Mini Mental State Exam,Hamilton Depression Scale and Hamilton Anxiety Scale.Results The incidence of motor complications was 43.6% (31/71).Logistic regression analysis showed that the prognostic factors for motor fluctuation were age of onset ≤ 54 (OR =6.4,95% CI 1.7-24.5,P =0.006),the occurrence of swallowing difficulty (OR =3.8,95 % CI 1.0-14.1,P =0.04) and depression (OR =4.0,95 % CI 1.1-13.7,P =0.03),and the prognostic factors for dyskinesia were age of onset ≤54 (OR =48.5,95% CI 1.9-121.0,P:0.02),the occurrence of falling (OR =64.1,95% CI 2.9-142.2,P =0.008) and the daily levodopa dosage > 600 mg(OR =17.5,95% CI 1.1-276.2,P =0.04).Based on the regression model,the assessment questionnaire for motor complicationsincludes the followings:the questionnaire for motor fluctuations:the age of onset ≤54,2 points; the occurrence of swallowing difficulty,1 point; the occurrence of depression,1 point; the questionnaire for dyskinesia:the onset age ≤54,2 points; the occurrence of falling,3 points; daily levodopa dosage > 600 mg,2 points.In all patients in this study,21.7% (10/46) was asscssed to a total scorc of 0-1 which is associated with a low risk of motor fluctuation,8/16 had a score of 2 which is associated with intermediate risk and 8/9 got a score of 3-4 associated high risk; 10.2% (5/49) had a score of 0-2,a low risk of dyskinesia,4/13 had a score of 3-4,a intermediate risk and 7/9 got a score of 5-7 which is associated with a high risk.Conclusions Age onset ≤54,the occurrence of swallowing difficulty,falling and depression,daily levodopa dosage > 600 mg were considered to be the prognostic factors of motor complications in PD.The questionnaire may help to stratify PD patients into low-risk,medium-risk and high-risk groups for motor complications and the higher the score in the questionnaire is related to the higher risk of motor complications.
