  • An ecological study of industry in a high-risk region of multiple sclerosis

    • The county of Varmland, Sweden, has shown a high frequency of multiple sclerosis in several investigations. It has been presented in three studies: a period prevalence study in 1925-1934, a mortality study during 1952-1992 and a prevalence investigation in 2002. The aim of this study was to investigate the pattern of industry in this high-risk area for multiple sclerosis. The three investigations were correlated with industry in 1913 and in the 1950s, all analyzed by the Kruskall-Wallis test. Select industries from wood-pulp, paper and iron/mechanical sectors were tested also in whole Sweden. The Spearman rank correlation was used for these data and forestry data in Varmland. In Varmland, industrial data from 1913 revealed that large sawmills were associated with the period prevalence in 1925-1934 and there was a possible correlation with the prevalence for 2002. Wood-pulp factories showed a possible association with the prevalence 1925-1934 and the mortality 1952-1992. Some industries in the 1950s were correlated with the prevalence 2002. Wood and paper industries in Sweden 1913 showed an association with the MS mortality 1952-1992. In summary, data on MS prevalence in Varmland and mortality both in Varmland and all Sweden from the past 100 years suggest an association with wood-related industries in 1913 and in the 1950s, whereas no consistent association was found for other industries.

  • PITX3 genotype and risk of dementia in Parkinson's disease : A population-based study
  • 2017
  • Ingår i: Journal of the Neurological Sciences. - : ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV. - 0022-510X .- 1878-5883. ; 381, s. 278-284
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Dementia is a devastating manifestation of Parkinson's disease (PD). This study investigates whether a common polymorphism in the PITX3 gene (rs2281983), which is of importance for the function of dopaminergic neurons, affects the risk of developing dementia in PD and whether it affects dopamine transporter (DAT) uptake. We PITX3 genotyped 133 patients with new-onset, idiopathic PD, participating in a population-based study in Sweden. Patients were followed prospectively during 6-11 years with extensive investigations, including neuropsychology and DAT-imaging with I-123 FP-CIT. The primary outcome was the incidence of PD dementia (PDD), diagnosed according to published criteria, studied by the Kaplan-Meier method and Cox proportional hazards. Performance in individual cognitive domains, the incidence of visual hallucinations, disease progression and striatal DAT uptake on imaging was also investigated. PD patients carrying the PITX3 C allele had an increased risk of developing PDD (hazard ratio: 2.87, 95% CI: 1.42-5.81, p = 0.003), compared to the PD patients homozygous for the T-allele. Furthermore, the PITX3 C allele carriers with PD had a poorer cognitive performance in the visuospatial domain (p < 0.001) and a higher incidence of visual hallucinations. A trend towards a lower striatal DAT uptake in the PITX3 C allele carriers was suggested, but could not be confirmed. Our results show that a common polymorphism in the PITX3 gene affects the risk of developing PDD and visuospatial dysfunction in idiopathic PD. If validated, these findings can provide new insights into the neurobiology and genetics of non-motor symptoms in PD.

  • Neurophysiological characteristics of MuSK antibody positive Myasthenia Gravis mice : Focal denervation and hypersensitivity to acetylcholinesterase inhibitors
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Journal of the Neurological Sciences. - 0022-510X .- 1878-5883. ; 316:1-2, s. 150-157
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Myasthenia Gravis (MG) patients with antibodies against the muscle specific tyrosine kinase (MuSK+) typically present with focal fatigue and atrophy of the facial and bulbar muscles, along with unbeneficial reactions upon administration of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AChEIs). This study addresses the neurophysiological characteristics in facial versus limb muscles, before and after intraperitoneal injection of AChEIs, in mice immunized with MuSK. We performed in-vivo neurophysiological examinations in the masseter and gastrocnemius muscles of mice with MuSK+experimental autoimmune MG (EAMG) and in healthy control mice before and after administration of AChEIs. Abnormal spontaneous activity (fibrillations) was observed in the masseter muscle of MuSK+mice. Furthermore, 94% of MuSK-immunized mice displayed so called extra discharges (EDs) upon administration of a therapeutic AChEI dose, in contrast to 22% of the control mice, indicating neuromuscular hyperactivity. These findings support functional denervation in the masseter muscle and neuromuscular hypersensitivity already at a standard dose of AChEIs in MuSK+EAMG.
