  • Classification and prediction of clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease based on MRI and plasma measures of α-/γ-tocotrienols and γ-tocopherol.

    • Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of combined structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) measures and plasma levels of vitamin E forms, including all eight natural vitamin E congeners (four tocopherols and four tocotrienols) and markers of vitamin E oxidative/nitrosative damage, in differentiating individuals with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) from cognitively intact control (CTL) subjects.Methods: Overall, 81 patients with AD, 86 with MCI and 86 CTL individuals were enrolled from the longitudinal multicentre AddNeuroMed study. MRI and plasma vitamin E data were acquired at baseline. MRI scans were analysed using Freesurfer, an automated segmentation scheme which generates regional volume and cortical thickness measures. Orthogonal partial least squares to latent structures (OPLS), a multivariate data analysis technique, was used to analyse MRI and vitamin E measures in relation to AD and MCI diagnosis.Results: The joint evaluation of MRI and plasma vitamin E measures enhanced the accuracy of differentiating individuals with AD and MCI from CTL subjects: 98.2% (sensitivity 98.8%, specificity 97.7%) for AD versus CTL, and 90.7% (sensitivity 91.8%, specificity 89.5%) for MCI versus CTL. This combination of measures also identified 85% of individuals with MCI who converted to clinical AD at follow-up after 1 year.Conclusions: Plasma levels of tocopherols and tocotrienols together with automated MRI measures can help to differentiate AD and MCI patients from CTL subjects, and to prospectively predict MCI conversion into AD. Our results suggest the potential role of nutritional biomarkers detected in plasma–tocopherols and tocotrienols–as indirect indicators of AD pathology, and the utility of a multimodality approach.

  • Implanted embryonic sensory neurons project axons toward adult auditory brainstem neurons in roller drum and Stoppini co-cultures

    • Previously we have shown in vivo the survival, migration and integration of embryonic dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons that were grafted into the inner ear and peripheral auditory nervous system. In order to evaluate relevant factors determining integration of sensory neurons further into the central auditory nervous system, complementary in vitro techniques are necessary. The advantages of in vitro systems are that a large number of factors including various grafts and different conditions can be efficiently examined for. Hence, we co-cultured 300 mu m thick postnatal rat brainstem slices containing the cochlear nucleus including the central part of the 8th cranial nerve with mouse embryonic DRG neurons. The organotypic co-cultures were either grown on coverslips using the roller drum method described by Gahwiler or on membranes according to the interface method described by Stoppini. Neurons in the cochlear nucleus were labeled, with DiI. The results demonstrate that (1) brainstem slices survive for up to 5 weeks in culture, and that (2) co-cultures of embryonic sensory neurons and brainstern show a high degree of neuronal survival, and that (3) survival and axonal outgrowth from the implanted embryonic neurons are dependant on the presence of the brainstern slice rather than on exogenous NGF and that (4) implanted embryonic neurons send axons toward neurons in the cochlear nucleus.

  • Magnetic resonance tracking of nanoparticle labelled neural stem cells in a rat's spinal cord
  • 2006
  • Ingår i: Nanotechnology. - 0957-4484 .- 1361-6528. ; 17:8, s. 1911-1915

    • Neural stem cells isolated from an adult rat's spinal cord were loaded with superparamagnetic gold-coated monocrystalline iron oxide nanoparticles (Au-MION) intended for use as contrast enhancers in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A dose-dependent attenuation of MRI signals was observed for Au-MION down to 0.001 mu gFe/mu l and for nanoparticle-loaded clusters of only 20 cells. The labelled cells were infused into the spinal cord of anaesthetized rats and tracked by MRI at 1 h, 48 h and 1 month post-injection. Histological analysis revealed that MRI signals correlated well with gold-positive staining of transplanted cells. The present results show that Au-MION exerts powerful contrast-enhancing properties and may represent novel MRI labels for labelling and tracking the transplanted cells in vivo.

  • Host strain-dependent difference in susceptibility in a rat model of herpes simplex type 1 encephalitis.

    • Herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE) is characterized by severe focal brain inflammation leading to substantial loss of nervous tissue. The authors established a model of Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV)-1-induced acute encephalitis in the rat by injecting into the whiskers' area a virus strain isolated from a fatal human HSE case. The model might resemble natural propagation of HSV-1 in humans; spreading from the mouth and lips via the trigeminal nerve to trigeminal ganglia and subsequently entering the central nervous system (CNS). HSV-1 infected Dark Agouti (DA) rats developed a well-synchronized disease and died 5 days after inoculation. HSV-1 detection by quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR), virus isolation and immunohistochemistry, magnetic resonance imaging, and histopathological examination verified dramatic encephalitis mainly in the brainstem, but also in the olfactory bulb and other segments of the brain of diseased rats. In contrast, Piebald Virol Glaxo (PVG) rats were completely resistant to disease, displaying a more rapid clearance of peripheral infection and no evidence of virus entering into neither the trigeminal ganglia nor the CNS. These results suggest a regulation of susceptibility to HSV-1-induced encephalitis at the level of peripheral infection and subsequent neuronal uptake/transport of the virus. This provides a basis for future positioning of genetic polymorphisms regulating HSE and for dissection of important pathogenetic mechanisms of this severe human disease.
