The pathogenesis of white matter lesions observed in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is not completely clear. We tested the hypothesis that white matter lesions are correlated with medullary artery sclerosis rather than with amyloid angiopathy. A total of 57 brains were examined, including 39 derived from patients with AD and 13 from patients with Binswanger’s(More)
Previously, the distribution of white matter lesions in CADASIL has been reported to be distinct from those in patients with ischemic leukoaraiosis and Binswanger's disease. In earlier European studies, diagnostic significance of white matter lesions in the temporopolar region (Tp), medial frontopolar region (Fp) and external capsule (EC) was stressed in(More)
Previous neuroimaging studies have indicated that corpus callosum atrophy in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and large vessel occlusive disease (LVOD) is caused by interhemispheric disconnection, namely Wallerian degeneration of interhemispheric commissural nerve fibers originating from pyramidal neurons in the cerebral cortex. However, this hypothesis has not(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE MicroRNAs have recently been shown to regulate the downstream bioprocesses of intracerebral hemorrhage. The aim of this study was to investigate whether miRNAs can be used as biomarkers to predict secondary hematoma enlargement (HE) in patients with ICH. METHODS Consecutively, 79 ICH patients admitted within 6 h of symptom onset and(More)
AIMS With developments of etiology of cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) and genome-wide association study (GWAS) of stroke, the genetic studies of CSVD are focused on genes related to blood-brain barrier (BBB) and aging. The project aims to investigate the association between CSVD and susceptibility loci and candidate genes. METHODS All study subjects(More)
CADASIL (cerebral autosomal dominant arteriopathy with subcortical infarcts and leukoencephalopathy) is a hereditary small artery disease which is phenotypically similar to Binswanger's disease (BD), a nonhereditary form of small artery disease. Recent studies have indicated that lesions in the temporopolar, medial frontopolar areas and external capsule are(More)
It has been demonstrated that phosphodiesterase 4D (PDE4D) genetic polymorphism is associated with ischemic stroke. However, the association between PDE4D gene and prognosis after ischemic stroke remains unknown. We consecutively enrolled ischemic stroke patients admitted to Beijing Tiantan Hospital from October 2009 to December 2013. Clinical, laboratory(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the features of acute dopaminergic responsiveness test in patients with Parkinsonian disorders, and to find a convenient approach of differential diagnosis of Parkinsonian disorders. METHODS Sixty inpatients with Parkinson disease (PD) or Parkinson's syndrome, including vascular Parkinsonism (VP), multiple system atrophy (MSA),(More)
