Increasing evidence has shown that abnormal metabolic phenotypes in body fluids reflect the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of Parkinson's disease (PD). These body fluids include urine; however, the relationship between, specifically, urinary metabolic phenotypes and PD is not fully understood. In this study, urinary metabolites from a total of 401(More)
Urine metabolic phenotyping has been associated with the development of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, few studies using a comprehensive metabolomics approach have investigated the correlation between changes in the urinary markers and the progression of clinical symptoms in PD. A comprehensive metabolomic study with robust quality control procedures(More)
BACKGROUND There is growing awareness of the coexistence of Alzheimer's disease and cerebrovascular disease (AD+CVD), however, due to lack of well-defined criteria and treatment guidelines AD+CVD may be underdiagnosed in Asia. METHODS Sixteen dementia specialists from nine Asia Pacific countries completed a survey in September 2014 and met in November(More)
INTRODUCTION The Stroke and Cognition consortium (STROKOG) aims to facilitate a better understanding of the determinants of vascular contributions to cognitive disorders and help improve the diagnosis and treatment of vascular cognitive disorders (VCD). METHODS Longitudinal studies with ≥75 participants who had suffered or were at risk of stroke or TIA(More)
Parkinson's disease is a progressive disabling movement disorder that is characterised by three cardinal symptoms: resting tremor, rigidity, and bradykinesia. Before the availability of effective medical treatment with levodopa and stereotactic neurosurgery, the objective of surgical management was to alleviate symptoms such as tremor at the expense of(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE An optimal strategy for management of symptomatic intracranial atherosclerotic stenosis (ICAS) has not yet been established. We compared the efficacy of 2 combinations of antiplatelets, aspirin plus cilostazol (cilostazol group) verus aspirin plus clopidogrel (clopidogrel group), on the progression of ICAS, which is known to be(More)
