Differences in gene expression patterns have been documented not only in Multiple Sclerosis patients versus healthy controls but also in the relapse of the disease. Recently a new gene expression modulator has been identified: the microRNA or miRNA. The aim of this work is to analyze the possible role of miRNAs in multiple sclerosis, focusing on the relapse(More)
BACKGROUND Although the most common clinical presentation of multiple sclerosis (MS) is the so called Relapsing-Remitting MS (RRMS), the molecular mechanisms responsible for its progression are currently unknown. To tackle this problem, a whole-genome gene expression analysis has been performed on RRMS patients. RESULTS The comparative analysis of the(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to study motor and nonmotor symptoms and striatal dopaminergic denervation, as well as the relationship between them, in a cohort of asymptomatic relatives of patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) with the R1441G-leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 mutation. METHODS Asymptomatic relatives of patients with PD and this(More)
Both cellular senescence and organismic aging are known to be dynamic processes that start early in life and progress constantly during the whole life of the individual. In this work, with the objective of identifying signatures of age-related progressive change at the transcriptomic level, we have performed a whole-genome gene expression analysis of(More)
Several studies have revealed a potential role for both small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) in the physiopathology of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). This potential implication has been mainly described through differential expression studies. However, it has been suggested that, in order to extract additional information(More)
INTRODUCTION Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a complex autoimmune disease of unknown etiology, in which genetic and environmental factors interact and determine the disease susceptibility. In recent years, smoking effect has been one of the emerging environmental factors in the study of MS and has been associated with an increased susceptibility and an increase(More)
INTRODUCTION Cognitive impairment and the presence of depressive symptoms, which are commonly found in patients with multiple sclerosis, affect the patients' quality of life. AIM. To describe the quality of life, cognitive compromise and levels of depression, in relation to other clinical variables, in patients with multiple sclerosis in the province of(More)
