In the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of 53 patients with senile dementia of the Alzheimer type (SDAT) and 12 elderly controls, we measured somatostatin (SLI) and its molecular forms: high-molecular weight form (HMV-SST), somatostatin-14 (SST-14), somatostatin-25/28 (SST-28/25), and des-ala-somatostatin (des-ala-SST) using high pressure liquid chromatography(More)
There is some evidence that Parkinson's disease (PD) seems to be a heterogenous and generalized brain disorder reflecting a degeneration of multiple neuronal networks, including somatostatinergic neurons. Somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SLI) and its molecular forms, high molecular weight form (HMV-SST), somatostatin-14 (SST-14), somatostatin-25/28(More)
The concentration of substance-P-like immunoreactivity (SPLI) and somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SLI) in the lumbar spinal fluid of senile parkinsonian patients (mean age 77.6 +/- 6.7 years) and senile control patients (mean age 83.5 +/- 5.6 years) were determined by specific radioimmunoassays. Mean SPLI and SLI levels in the control group were 8.1 +/-(More)
Eighteen women with senile dementia of the Alzheimer type were observed in two situations of mirror-image stimulation, which were repeated after a 3-week interval. Six out of six subjects scoring 5 on the Global Deterioration Scale of Reisberg et al. reacted appropriately to an unfamiliar mark on their forehead when they observed it in the mirror, thus(More)
Recordings of ocular movements during reading in hemianopic patients showed an increase in global reading time related mainly to the increase in number of movements of progression and regression in left hemianopsia and to the time to return to the line in right hemianopsia. Comparison of these changes with those noted in the same patients during recordings(More)
The concentrations of delta sleep-inducing peptide (DSIP)-like (DSIP-LI) and P-DSIP-like (phosphorylated, Ser7) immunoreactivity (P-DSIP-LI) were measured by specific radioimmunoassay in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with senile dementia of the Alzheimer type [SDAT, subdivided into early (S1), middle (S2) and late dementia (S3)], multi-infarct(More)
The molecular size distribution of somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SLI) in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with brain disease was investigated by separation with a Sephadex G-25 superfine column and subsequent radioimmunoassay of the eluate. Marked heterogeneity of SLI in the CSF of control subjects as well as in demented patients, was(More)
The concentrations of somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SLI) and substance-P-like immunoreactivity (SPLI) in lumbar spinal fluid of patients with senile dementia of the Alzheimer type (SDAT), multi-infarct syndrome, communicating hydrocephalus and control patients were determined by specific radio-immunoassay. Mean SLI and SPLI levels were significantly(More)
