In a new study published in The New England Journal of Medicine the researchers, comparing two doses of Cannabidiol (CBD) to a placebo, reported a 41.9 percent reduction in "drop seizures" in patients taking a 20 mg/kg/d Cannabidiol (CBD) regimen, a 37.2 percent reduction in those on a 10 mg/kg/d Cannabidiol (CBD) regimen, and a 17.2 percent reduction in a group given a placebo. The phase III trial was led by principal investigator and study first co-author Orrin Devinsky, MD, a professor of neurology, neurosurgery, and psychiatry at NYU School of Medicine and director of NYU Langone's...

In a study published in Current Biology today, researchers from King's College London uncovers the precise mechanisms by which autophagy leads to cell death. The study used a mouse model for the polyglutamine disease dentatorubral-pallidoluysian atrophy (DRPLA), progressive acquirement of an ataxic phenotype linked to severe cerebellar cellular pathology, characterized by nuclear degeneration through nucleophagy-based LaminB1 degradation and excretion.  DRPLA is caused by the expansion of a CAG stretch in the ATROPHIN-1 (ATN1) gene. Patients display ataxic and choreoathetoid symptoms as well as myoclonus, generalized epilepsy, and dementia with extensive cellular degeneration found in the basal ganglia (e.g., the globus pallidus,...
Hibernating ground squirrels provide clues for neuroprotection in ischemic stroke

Updated February 08, 2020
 In a study published in The FASEB Journal a team of NIH-funded scientists reports on a potential drug that could be protective in ischemic stroke patients.  The clue for the study came from observations in hibernating ground squirrels. In these animals there is a dramatic reduction of cerebral blood flow during hibernation, yet they emerge from their sleep without any ill effects at all.  The researchers observed that a cellular process called SUMOylation goes into overdrive in a certain species of ground squirrel during hibernation. They suspected this might be the mechanism by which the animals' brains...

New research published in Epilepsia, a journal of the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE), indicates that wristband devices may improve the detection and characterization of seizures in patients with epilepsy. In their attempts to develop a better monitoring method, Giulia Regalia, PhD and Francesco Onorati, PhD, of Empatica Inc. in Milan, Italy and Cambridge, Massachusetts, and their colleagues examined the potential of automated, wearable systems to detect and characterize convulsive epileptic seizures. The researchers used three different wristbands to record two signals -- called electrodermal activity and accelerometer signals -- that usually exhibit marked changes upon the...

This largest whole-genome sequencing study on epilepsy was piloted by Jacques Michaud, Pediatrician at CHU Sainte-Justine and Professor of Pediatrics and Neuroscience at the Faculty of Medicine of Université de Montreal and his colleagues, Elsa Rossignol and Patrick Cossette of Universite de Montréal and Berge Minassian of the University of Toronto.  The team identified eight new genes involved in this type of epilepsy thanks to their use of whole-genome sequencing, which had never been done before in an epileptic study of this scope. The results of their study were recently published in the American Journal of Human Genetics. The...
