    • <p><strong>BACKGROUND</strong> To evaluate cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) markers for neuronal degeneration and demyelination in idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (INPH), subcortical arteriosclerotic encephalopathy (SAE), and neurologically healthy subjects.</p><p><strong>METHODS</strong> Lumbar CSF concentrations of sulfatide, neurofilament protein light (NFL), total-tau (T-tau), hyperphosphorylated tau (P-tau), and beta-amyloid(1-42) (Abeta42) were analyzed in 62 INPH patients, 26 SAE patients, and 23 neurologically healthy controls. In INPH patients, samples before and after shunt surgery were analysed.</p><p><strong>RESULTS</strong> The CSF concentration of NFL was elevated in INPH and SAE compared with the controls, and levels of T-tau, P-tau, and Abeta42 were lower in INPH compared with SAE and controls. No difference was seen for sulfatide. All markers except Abeta42 were significantly elevated after shunt surgery.</p><p><strong>CONCLUSIONS</strong> The most striking finding was the power of the combined pattern of NFL, P-tau, and Abeta42 in distinguishing between the clinical diagnoses of INPH, SAE, and neurologically healthy elderly.</p>

  • Liquid ionization chamber calibrated gel dosimetry in conformal stereotactic radiotherapy of brain lesions
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Acta Oncologica. - 0284-186X .- 1651-226X. ; 47:6, s. 1099-1109

    • <p>Hypofractionated conformal stereotactic radiotherapy (HCSRT) is an established method of treating brain lesions such as arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) and brain metastases. The aim of this study was to investigate the reliability of treatment plans in the terms of dose distribution and absorbed dose for HCSRT.</p> <p>Methods and materials. Treatment plans for three different clinical intracerebral targets, AVMs, were transferred to a CT study of a spherical water filled phantom simulating the human head and recalculated for the phantom geometry using a standard treatment planning system utilizing a pencil beam algorithm for dose calculation. The calculated absorbed dose, relative three dimensional (3D) dose distribution and dose conformity were investigated using gel dosimetry normalized to liquid ionization chamber (LIC) measurements.</p> <p>Results. The measured absorbed dose to the dose reference point was found to be within 2% of the calculated dose for all three targets. The measured dose distribution was found to be within 3% and 2 mm of the calculated dose for more than 93% of all points in the target volume for all three targets.</p> <p>Conclusions. The results show that the investigated standard treatment planning system can correctly predict the absorbed dose and dose distribution in different types of intracerebral targets and that the treatment can be delivered according to the plan.</p>

  • Loud Noise Exposure and Acoustic Neuroma
  • 2014
  • Ingår i: American Journal of Epidemiology. - Oxford University Press. - 0002-9262. ; 180:1, s. 58-67
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The results from studies of loud noise exposure and acoustic neuroma are conflicting. A population-based case-control study of 451 acoustic neuroma patients and 710 age-, sex-, and region-matched controls was conducted in Sweden between 2002 and 2007. Occupational exposure was based on historical measurements of occupational noise (321 job titles summarized by a job exposure matrix) and compared with self-reported occupational noise exposure. We also evaluated self-reported noise exposure during leisure activity. Conditional logistic regression was used to estimate odds ratios. There was no statistically significant association between acoustic neuroma and persistent occupational noise exposure, either with or without hearing protection. Exposure to loud noise from leisure activity without hearing protection was more common among acoustic neuroma cases (odds ratio = 1.47, 95% confidence interval: 1.06, 2.03). Statistically significant odds ratios were found for specific leisure activities including attending concerts/clubs/sporting events (odds ratio = 1.82, 95% confidence interval: 1.09, 3.04) and participating in workouts accompanied by loud music (odds ratio = 2.84, 95% confidence interval: 1.37, 5.89). Our findings do not support an association between occupational exposure to loud noise and acoustic neuroma. Although we report statistically significant associations between leisure-time exposures to loud noise without hearing protection and acoustic neuroma, especially among women, we cannot rule out recall bias as an alternative explanation.

  • Epidermal growth factor receptor family (EGFR, ErbB2-4) in gliomas and meningiomas
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: Acta Neuropathologica. - 0001-6322 .- 1432-0533. ; 108:2, s. 135-142
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Overexpression of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR, ErbB1) correlates with enhanced malignant potential of many human tumor types including glioblastoma multiforme. The significance of EGFR expression in meningiomas is, however, unclear. Reports regarding the other EGFR family members, ErbB2-4, in brain tumors are sparse. In this study, the expression of the EGFR family members was analyzed in relation to various parameters for the clinical importance of these receptors in 44 gliomas and 26 meningiomas. In gliomas, quantitative real-time reverse transcription (RT)-PCR revealed the highest EGFR mRNA expression in high-grade gliomas, while ErbB2 and ErbB3 mRNA were detected only in a few high-grade gliomas. In contrast, ErbB4 expression was most pronounced in low-grade gliomas. Immunohistochemistry showed significantly higher EGFR protein expression in high-grade gliomas compared to low-grade gliomas (P= 0.004). ErbB2 protein expression was mainly seen in high-grade gliomas. ErbB3 protein expression was low in all gliomas analyzed. ErbB4 protein expression was significantly higher in low-grade gliomas than in high-grade gliomas (P= 0.007). In meningiomas, quantitative real-time RT-PCR revealed expression of EGFR, ErbB2, and ErbB4 mRNA in the majority of the tumors. ErbB3 was detected in only one of the meningiomas analyzed. Immunohistochemistry demonstrated high ErbB2 protein expression in meningiomas. An intriguing observation in astrocytomas and oligodendrogliomas grade II, was a significantly decreased overall survival for patients with high EGFR protein expression (P= 0.04). The high ErbB4 expression in low-grade compared to high-grade gliomas might suggest that ErbB4 acts as a suppressor of malignant transformation in brain tumors, which is in line with previous studies in other tumor types.</p>

  • Heterogeneity in the expression of markers for drug resistance in brain tumors
  • 2004
  • Ingår i: Clinical Neuropathology. - 0722-5091. ; 23:1, s. 21-27
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Brain tumors, in general, display a multidrug-resistant phenotype. This study evaluated the immunohistochemical expression and distribution of P-glycoprotein (Pgp), multidrug resistance protein (MRP1), lung resistance protein (LRP) and O6 methylguanine-DNA methyltransferase (MGMT) in low- and high-grade astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma and in different subgroups of meningioma. The results revealed a marked heterogeneity in the expression and distribution among the analyzed tumors. In astrocytoma and oligodendroglioma, Pgp and MRP1 were observed in the capillary endothelium and in scattered tumor cells, whereas LRP occurred only in tumor cells. A pronounced expression of MGMT was found independent of the histopathological grade. An enhanced expression of MRP1 and LRP in astrocytoma and oligodendroglioma were more often evident in older patients (&gt; 50 years). Survival analysis suggested a markedly decreased overall survival for patients suffering from low-grade glioma overexpressing Pgp. In meningioma, a heterogeneous expression of Pgp, MRP1, LRP and MGMT was seen with the most prominent staining localized to the capillary endothelium. Pgp was significantly more often overexpressed (p &lt; 0.05) in transitional compared to meningothelial meningioma. The marked heterogeneity in the expression suggests that analysis of these factors can be of importance in the selection of individualized chemotherapy, regardless of tumor type.</p>

  • Rapid induction of long-lasting drug efflux activity in brain vascular endothelial cells but not malignant glioma following irradiation
  • 2002
  • Ingår i: Medical Oncology. - 1357-0560 .- 1559-131X. ; 19:1, s. 1-9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>The influence of radiotherapy on malignant glioma multidrug resistance to chemotherapy was evaluated because patients with glioma often are treated with a combination of radiotherapy and chemotherapy. Multidrug resistance gene (MDR1, mdr1a, and mdr1b) transcripts were found in human and rat glioma cell lines. P-Glycoprotein (Pgp) was immunohistochemically detected in glioma cell lines and in the rat brain vascular endothelial cell line (RBE4). A multidrug resistance pump efflux activity assay demonstrated increased calcein efflux of RBE4 endothelial cells, but not glioma cells, 2 h after irradiation and still increased 14 d after irradiation. The increased efflux was equally inhibited by verapamil with or without irradiation. In the rat intracranial glioma model (BT4C), Pgp was demonstrated in capillary endothelial cells of the tumor tissue and surrounding normal brain, but not in tumor cells. The expression of gene transcripts or Pgp was not affected by irradiation. The results indicate that long-lasting verapamil-resistant drug efflux mechanisms are activated in brain endothelial cells after irradiation. The results might explain the poor efficacy of chemotherapy following radiotherapy and contribute to consideration of new treatment strategies in the management of malignant glioma.</p>

  • Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy measurements for tissue-type discrimination during deep brain stimulation.
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Journal of neural engineering. - 1741-2560. ; 5:2, s. 185-190
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p>Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy as a method for improving intracerebral guidance during functional neurosurgery has been investigated. An optical probe was developed for measurements during stereotactic and functional neurosurgery in man. The aim of the study was to investigate the spectral differences between white and grey matter and between white matter and functional targets. Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy measurements in ten patients were recorded at incremental steps towards and in three different functional targets (STN, GPi and Zi). The recorded spectra along the trajectory were sorted into white or grey matter, based on preoperative MRI images or the recorded spectral shape and intensity. The difference between tissue types was calculated as a quotient. Significant intensity differences between white and grey matter were found to be at least 14% (p &lt; 0.05) and 20% (p &lt; 0.0001) for MRI and spectral-sorted data respectively. The reflectance difference between white matter and the functional targets of GPi was higher than for STN and Zi. The results indicate that diffuse reflectance spectroscopy has a potential to be developed to a suitable complement to other intracerebral guidance methods.</p>

  • One hundred eleven Percutaneous Balloon Compressions for Trigeminal Neuralgia in a Cohort of 66 Patients with Multiple Sclerosis
  • 2019
  • Ingår i: Operative neurosurgery. - Oxford University Press. - 2332-4252 .- 2332-4260. ; 17:5, s. 452-459
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • <p><strong>BACKGROUND:</strong> Trigeminal neuralgia associated with multiple sclerosis (MS-TN) is comparatively rare and larger series of percutaneous balloon compression (PBC) in such cases are few in the literature.</p><p><strong>OBJECTIVE:</strong> To evaluate the results after PBC for MS-TN with regards to therapeutic effect, side effects, and complications.</p><p><strong>METHODS:</strong> One hundred eleven procedures with PBC performed in 66 cases of MS-TN were analyzed. Therapeutic effect was measured as postoperative time to pain recurrence without medication. All complications were compiled and the sensory function was evaluated in a subgroup of cases.</p><p><strong>RESULTS:</strong> The initial pain free rate was 67% and the median time to pain recurrence was 8 mo. Thirty-six patients were treated with PBC only, and among them, the results were worse if treated 3 to 4 times before, compared to first treatment (P = .009-.034). Patients who had several PBCs had worse results already after the first surgery (P &lt; .001). A significant number of patients had impaired sensation to light touch directly after surgery, which was normalized at the late follow-up. Sensimetric testing showed raised thresholds for perception and pain directly after surgery (P = .004-.03), but these were also normalized at the late follow-up.</p><p><strong>CONCLUSION:</strong> PBC is a treatment that can be effective for many patients with MS-TN. Repeated previous surgeries is a risk factor for an unsatisfactory outcome. However, the patients with multiple surgeries had less satisfactory results already at the first procedure, indicating that a therapy resistant disease can be predicted after the first two PBCs. Postoperative sensory deficits were common but not lasting.</p>

  • Percutaneous Balloon Compression for the Treatment of Trigeminal Neuralgia
  • 2019
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • <p><strong>Background. </strong>Trigeminal neuralgia (TN) is a paroxysmal unilateral facial pain condition. That it is rather rare is of little comfort to those who are affected, as TN is often described as one of the worst pains known to mankind. Advanced age and multiple sclerosis (MS) are risk factors for developing TN. The first line of treatment is medical, primarily with carbamazepine. When medical treatment fails, as it does in many patients, there are several surgical options. One of the minimally invasive options, suitable for patients with comorbidity, is percutaneous balloon compression (PBC). Despite its introduction in the early 1980s, PBC is arguably the least well studied of the minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of TN.</p><p><strong>Aims. </strong>The aim of this thesis was to evaluate the efficacy of PBC, both overall and in MS-TN patients specifically. Further, it intended to identify and evaluate pre- and intraoperative parameters associated with the efficacy of PBC. It also investigated changes in sensory function after PBC, and identified side effects and complications associated with PBC. Finally, it sought to evaluate how efficacy, side effects and complications differed between PBC and another minimally invasive technique; percutaneous retrogasserian glycerol rhizotomy (PRGR).</p><p><strong>Methods. </strong>Cohorts of patients treated with PBC in Umeå and Stockholm, and with PRGR in Umeå, were followed retrospectively. Data from an existing database was combined with data from medical records, radiographs and telephone interviews.</p><p><strong>Results. </strong>After PBC, 90 % of the patients were completely pain free without medication for TN. The median time to recurrence of pain was 28 months. In patients with concurrent MS, the initial success rate was 67 % and the median time to recurrence was 8 months. In patients without MS, who had not previously been treated surgically, the initial success rate was 91 % and the median time to recurrence was 48 months. The procedure could, however, be repeated with good results. A good compression, indicated by a pear-shaped balloon as seen on intraoperative lateral radiograph, was crucial to achieve good pain relief. Postoperative hypoesthesia was present in the majority of patients, but after 3-6 months, sensibility was partly or fully normalized in most patients. Severe complications were rare, but included transient cardiac arrest, meningitis and dysesthesia. The side effects profile was favorable to that of percutaneous retrogasserian glycerol rhizotomy, in that the latter produced more cases of dysesthesia and decreased corneal sensibility. The efficacy of the two treatments were, however, not significantly different.</p><p><strong>Conclusions. </strong>PBC is an effective and relatively safe treatment option for patients with TN refractory to medical treatment. It deserves its place among the standard treatments for TN, and could be considered for those patients eligible for surgery for which open surgery is a less suitable option.</p><p> </p>
