Multiple Episodes of Full-Body Tremors: An Unexpected Adverse Effect during an Alzheimer's Disease Investigational Drug Study

Jeffrey T Apter, Ivy A Billones and Kaylee White

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: November 16, 2018

A 69-year-old Caucasian female experienced multiple episodes of full-body tremors during the extension phase of the clinical study. The investigational drug was taken in the mornings. The patient reported that the AE started six months prior with episodes occurring 1-2 times per week eventually escalating almost daily and was more apparent during midnight hours and upon waking up. Further review of previous progress notes states that the patient denied the AE and even stated full compliance and ...

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Linked to Intestinal Microbiota Dysbiosis & Systemic Microbial Infection in Human Patients: A Cross-Sectional Clinical Study

David A Steenblock, Taruna Ikrar, Andrew S San Antonio, Elfi Wardaningsih and Masoud J Azizi

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: September 12, 2018

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease is a neurodegenerative and neuromuscular disorder characterized by a progressive death of motor neurons & motor paralysis that culminates in death, usually within 3-5 years of diagnosis from respiratory failure due to paralysis. Currently approved ALS therapies are not curative and fail to increase healthy lifespan. The worldwide prevalence of ALS is expected to increase by 69% over the ...

Apolipoprotein E Fragmentation within Lewy Bodies of the Human Parkinson's Disease Brain

Troy T Rohn and Jacob M Mack

Article Type: Research Article | First Published: February 23, 2018

Although harboring the Apolipoprotein E4 (APOE4) allele is a well-known risk factor in Alzheimer's disease (AD), whether a similar risk holds true for Parkinson's disease (PD) is currently not known. To investigate whether apoE pathology is present in PD, an immunohistochemical study was undertaken with fixed, human PD brain sections from the substantia nigra utilizing a recently characterized antibody that detects an amino-terminal fragment of a...
