The relationship between genetic factors and the development of cerebral palsy (CP) has recently attracted much attention. Polymorphisms in the genes encoding proinflammatory cytokines have been shown to be associated with susceptibility to perinatal brain injury and development of CP. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a proinflammatory cytokine that plays a pivotal(More)
Adaptor protein complex 4 (AP-4) plays a key role in vesicle formation, trafficking, and sorting processes that are critical for brain development and function. AP-4 consists of four subunits encoded by the AP4E1, AP4B1, AP4M1, and AP4S1 genes. A number of studies have pointed to the involvement of AP-4–mediated vesicular trafficking pathways in the(More)
This study aimed to investigate the high risk factors, cerebral palsy (CP) subtypes and comorbidities of periven-tricular leukomalacia (PVL). Based on treatment conditions at a specialist hospital, a cross-sectional clinical study and retrospective analysis of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging examinations was conducted to evaluate the risk(More)
Cerebral palsy (CP) is a neurological disorder affecting movement and posture that develops as a complication of prenatal, perinatal, and postnatal brain injury. Such non-progressive brain injury is often accompanied by neonatal encephalopathy and inflammation. The widely expressed soluble cytokine osteopontin (OPN) plays an important role in inflammation(More)
Apolipoprotein E (APOE, protein; ApoE, gene) is a lipid transport protein abundantly present in brain cells. Previous studies have suggested that there is an association between genetic variants of ApoE and susceptibility to cerebral palsy (CP). The purpose of this study was to explore whether the ApoE gene is involved in the etiology of CP in the Chinese(More)
To compare the efficacy of cord blood mononuclear cells (MNCs) and CD34+ cells for the treatment of neonatal mice models with cerebral palsy (CP). CP model in neonatal mice was established by the ligation of carotid artery. Mice were randomly designated into MNCs group, CD34+ group, model group and control group (30 mice per group). MNCs and CD34+ cells(More)
