Neurochemical Aspects of Neurotraumatic and Neurodegenerative Diseases Book Review:

Collectively, neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by chronic and progressive loss of neurons in discrete areas of the brain, producing debilitating symptoms such as dementia, loss of memory, loss of sensory or motor capability, decreased overall quality of life eventually leading to premature death. Two types of cell death are known to occur during neurodegeneration: (a) apoptosis and (b) necrosis. The necrosis is characterized by the passive cell swelling, intense mitochondrial damage with rapid loss of ATP, alterations in neural membrane permeability, high calcium influx, and disruption of ion homeostasis. This type of cell death leads to membrane lysis and release of intracellular components that induce inflammatory reactions. Necrotic cell death normally occurs at the core of injury site. In contrast, apoptosis is an active process in which caspases (a group of endoproteases with specificity for aspartate residues in protein) are stimulated. Apoptotic cell death is accompanied by cell shrinkage, dynamic membrane blebbing, chromatin condensation, DNA laddering, loss of phospholipids asymmetry, low ATP levels, and mild calcium overload. This type of cell death normally occurs in penumbral region at the ischemic injury site and in different regions in various neurodegenerative diseases.

Molecular Diagnostics in the Detection of Neurodegenerative Disorders Book Review:

Neurodegeneration is characterized by the progressive loss of neural tissue that result in various neurodegeneration-initiated cerebral failures and complex diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease. All these medical conditions are accompanied by the disruption of blood-brain barrier (BBB). The BBB is an interface, separating the brain from the circulatory system and protecting the central nervous system from potentially harmful chemicals while regulating transport of essential molecules and maintaining a stable environment. Owing to the inability of the neurons to regenerate on their own after neurodegeneration or severe damage to the neural tissue, neurodegenerative disorders do not have natural cures on their own. Neuroregeneration is a viable way to curb neurodegeneration. One of the current approaches is stem cell-based therapy that has been shown to be potentially helpful for the application of neuronal cell replacement for neuroregeneration. It is vital that the neurodegenerative disorder being detected at an early stage as it can provide a chance for treatment that may be helpful to prevent further progression of the fatal disease. Thus, research has focused on developing effective non-invasive diagnostic methods for early detection of these disorders. Molecular diagnostics can provide a powerful method to detect and diagnose various neurological disorders. Such diagnosis can enhance early detection, provide subsequent medical counsel based on medical pathway, as well as to gain better insight of neurogenesis and hopefully eventual cure of the neurodegenerative diseases. With research reports, reviews, mini-reviews and commentary, this research topic covers a wide range of areas in neurodegeneration research, including diagnosis and prognosis; regulating central nervous system; biomarkers and brain injury induced neurobehavioral outcomes among other timely reports on neurodegeneration.

Exploring Molecular and Cellular Strategies for Neuroprotection and Neuroregeneration in Multiple Sclerosis Book Review:

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an incurable neurological condition that affects close to 1 in 1000 Australians. Research into the complex aetiology and pathophysiology of MS is rapidly advancing. Many new treatments targeting the immune system are now available and can partially prevent damage caused by inflammation. However, all patients have a degree of axonal loss and neurodegeneration that can contribute to long-term disability. So far, no treatment has demonstrated an ability to directly protect the central nervous system (CNS) of MS patients from axonal injury or neurodegeneration. No treatment has shown to remyelinate or regenerate injured tissue in clinical trials. There is therefore a great demand for a therapy that can not only modulate the immune system but also protect the brain from axonal injury and facilitate repair processes. The aim of this thesis was to explore potential therapeutic approaches to neuroprotection and neuroregeneration in Multiple Sclerosis. Direct cell replacement was assessed using bone marrow derived cells in an animal model of Multiple Sclerosis, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE). The ability of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and amnion epithelial cells (AECs) to protect human neural stem cells from oxidative stress injury and to differentiate through the production of neurotrophic factors was examined in vitro. Finally, several cytoskeletal proteins important for axonal growth were characterised. Their relationship with the Nogo receptor and changes due to inflammation from EAE were investigated.The ability of bone marrow derived cells to directly replace and regenerate cells within the uninjured or inflamed brain and spinal cord was assessed in the first part of the thesis. Despite the use of a highly sensitive multi-colour flow cytometry, an insignificant number of the bone marrow derived cells transplanted into mice were able to transform into neural cells. These findings were confirmed using immunofluorescence microscopy and virtual slide imaging. Although more bone marrow derived cells migrated to the brain and spinal cord in mice with EAE than controls, they retained hematopoietic cell markers, hence confirming the lack of transformation.While bone marrow predominantly contains hematopoietic cells and their precursors, there are other cell types including MSCs that have been investigated as a possible novel therapy for Multiple Sclerosis. As well as modulating the immune system, these cells have potential for neuroprotection and regeneration. Rather than direct cell replacement, these cells possibly have their effect through the production of soluble factors. We have demonstrated that MSC express RNA for many neurotrophic factors and in particular produce IL-6, BDNF and HGF. The quantity of these factors was increased following exposure to pro-inflammatory cytokines, particularly TNF-[alpha]. In the second part of the thesis, a novel culture system in which neural stem cells (NSCs) derived from a patient with MS using induced pluripotent stem cell techniques was used to assess the ability of human MSC to protect against oxidative stress and enhance differentiation through the production of neurotrophic factors. NSCs exposed to MSC conditioned media for 5 weeks reduced the expression of GFAP expression and a low molecular weight component within the conditioned media ameliorated oxidative stress.Although bone marrow derived MSC have many attractive attributes for use as an immunomodulatory and neuroregenerative therapy in MS, the need for cell culture and expansion may limit its use. AECs are an alternative cell type obtained in large numbers from otherwise discarded placentas that has promise for use in inflammatory conditions including MS. The neuroprotective and regenerative potential in MS has not previously been examined. The ability of AECs to produce neurotrophic factors was investigated and compared with MSCs. AECs expressed fewer neurotrophic factors and did not produce IL-6, BDNF or HGF. AEC conditioned media still reduced GFAP expression in NSCs over 5 weeks of culture but appeared to increase oxidative stress and cell death. Similar to MSCs, the AEC conditioned media appeared to ameliorate the effect of an exogenous oxidative stress.While cell therapies have great potential in regenerative medicine, there are a number of other promising avenues of research. In the final part of the thesis, possible mechanisms underlying Nogo receptor mediated restriction in axonal growth have been explored. Two proteins downstream of the Nogo Receptor, CRMP-2 and cofilin were examined. Phosphorylated CRMP-2 correlated well with axonal loss in both the animal model of MS (EAE) and biopsy sections from an MS patient. Levels of phosphorylated cofilin were higher in mice lacking the Nogo receptor than the controls. Since cofilin phosphorylation is linked to axonal growth, if substantiated, these findings could potentially lead to novel and targeted therapies for regeneration in MS.This thesis has explored a range of different strategies that show promise for neuroprotection and regeneration in MS from direct cell replacement by bone marrow stem cells, the production of neurotrophic factors by MSCs and AECs, and modulation of the Nogo receptor via CRMP-2 and cofilin. Due to the great demand for neuroprotective and regenerative therapies these and other therapies are already being translated into early clinical trials. Although current immunomodulatory therapies can significantly reduce relapses and lesion load over time, a combination of immunomodulatory and neuroprotective/regenerative therapies may have a greater impact on reducing long-term disability and improve the quality of life for patients with MS.

Nutraceuticals for Aging and Anti Aging Book Review:

Aging can be perceived differently during different times in one’s life. Aging as a process not only influences medical and economic dimensions at an individual level but also at societal and national levels. Aging is a natural process; however, its standard definition in a healthcare context is yet unclear. To delay the aging process and to maintain quality of life until the end of life are two goals of prime importance. Various healthcare approaches are being developed and experimented on to best manage aging as if it is a disease. Nutraceuticals are value-added dietary supplement products and have an immense potential in altering key structures and functions of aging. Nutraceuticals can be a keystone in altering sub-normal performing physiological and metabolic systems due to aging. Nutraceuticals for Aging and Anti-Aging: Basic Understanding and Clinical Evidence addresses aging and anti-aging nutraceuticals based on 10 major challenges, such as cognitive health, malnutrition, substance abuse, bladder control, and oral health, among others. It examines how these challenges can be complemented with nutraceuticals and connects the applications with the traditional wisdom of the aging process. Key Features Examines the aging process, then recommends nutraceuticals for aging and anti-aging processes Describes the aging process from the western perspective, and Ayurvedic medicine (Indian traditional system) and traditional Chinese medicine perspectives Provides, whenever possible, the clinical evidence of the applications of nutraceuticals for aging and anti-aging This book is a valuable resource for physicians, clinical experts, pharmaceutical companies and their experts, nutrition specialists, entrepreneurs, chemists, pharmacists, food chemists-technologists, as well as researchers and post-graduate students involved in these specialties.

Hormones in Neurodegeneration Neuroprotection and Neurogenesis Book Review:

As life expectancy increases and population ages, the already enormous impact of neurodegeneration on society will become even larger without better prevention and treatment. Developing strategies to prevent degeneration of neurons and to promote a healthy nervous system is, thus, critical. The development of pharmacological agents that would increase production of new neurons was recently facilitated by the identification of the hormonal regulators of various steps of adult neurogenesis. The proposed book is writen by a group of top world experts involved in the study of the mechanisms of hormonal control of brain damage and repair. The effects of thyroid and steroid hormones (estrogens, androgens, progestins, gluco-mineralo-corticoids, various neurosteroids) or polypeptide hormones (CRF, urocortins, somatostastin, GH/IGF, leptin, prolactin, PACAP, erythropoetin) on neuronal survival and neurogenesis in various neurodegenerative conditions and in brain aging will be discussed in detail. The proposed book is unique because it gives a comprehensive account of the neuroprotective and neurogenic effects of steroid and polypeptide hormones. Furthermore, new pharmacological approaches for treatment of neurodegenerative conditions are presented, based on the neuroprotective and neurogenic properties of natural and synthetic hormones.

Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Diseases Book Review:

With the unprecedented identification of new mutation mechanisms in neurodegenerative diseases and the emergence of common mechanisms among diseases that were once considered unrelated, neurobiologists are poised for the development of new therapies based on high throughput screenings and a better understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms leading to neurodegeneration. In Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Diseases, Marie-Francoise Chesselet, MD, PhD, and a panel of leading researchers and neurologists from industry and academia critically review the most recent advances from different yet complementary points of view. Focusing on Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and CAG triplet repeat diseases, the authors show how studies of cellular and genetically engineered animal models have enhanced our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases and may lead to the development of new therapeutics. Topics include the role of Ab toxicity, glial cells, and inflammation in Alzheimer's disease; the formation of abnormal protein fragments across several diseases, the impact of dopamine and mitochondrial dysfunction on neurodegeneration; and the potential of genetics to identify the molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases. Authoritative and insightful, Molecular Mechanisms of Neurodegenerative Diseases synthesizes the novel ideas and concepts now emerging to create a fresh understanding of neurodegenerative disorders, one that promises to lead to powerful new therapies that prevent, delay the onset, slow the progression, or even cure these cruel diseases.
