Book Description :

The cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is an invaluable diagnostic tool in clinical neurology, not only in the evaluation of inflammatory, degenerative, and malignant diseases of the nervous system, but also in the diagnosis of all forms of cerebral and subarachnoidal bleedings. The CSF can be easily obtained by lumbar puncture and a set of basic analyses can be conducted using relatively simple laboratory methods. By combining different CSF parameters, a wide range of diagnostic entities can be identified. However, properly interpreting the test results requires a high level of expertise and cannot be achieved by just reporting on individual analytic values. This book covers essential aspects of cerebrospinal fluid analysis and its use in the diagnosis of common neurological diseases. The first part addresses preclinical aspects such as the history of CSF, as well as the anatomical, physiological, and biological background of this valuable fluid. In addition, CSF collection, its preanalytical and methodological implications, and the increasing number of disease-specific markers in CSF are discussed in detail. Lastly, CSF analyses are put into context with clinical syndromes, demonstrating their diagnostic value in neurological clinical practice. Cerebrospinal Fluid in Clinical Neurology helps readers understand the preanalytical and analytical aspects of CSF diagnostics and offers a valuable reference guide for interpreting CSF results during the clinical work-up for neurological patients.

Book Description :

For centuries the great minds of medical science puzzled over the importance of the cerebrospinal fluid. As far back as Hippocrates, it was thought that this "phlegm" that flooded the intracranial contents had pathological significance. However, not until the late 1800s, when Quincke introduced and popularized lumbar puncture, did physicians take an interest in the study of this fluid in relation to clinical illness. Since then a variety of techniques for obtaining cerebrospinal fluid from various sites have developed, and the relationship of cerebrospinal fluid to a variety of disease processes has received considerable study. In this volume, we have attempted to assemble reviews of some of these important developments during the past century. Chapter 1 contains a historical review of key investigations that helped shape our concepts of cerebrospinal fluid from the earliest recorded description by the author of the Edwin Smith Surgical Papyrus in the seventeenth century B. C. to contemporaries such as Kabat, Glusman, and Knaub, who introduced quantitative determinations of cerebrospinal fluid gamma globulin levels. In Chapter 2 there is a description of our current understanding of the anatomical compartment for the cerebrospinal fluid and the physiology of its formation, circulation, and absorption. Dr. Richard Leech in Chapter 3 contributes a comprehensive description of the disorders associated with excessive quanti ties of cerebrospinal fluid-commonly referred to as hydrocephalus. A variety of techniques for properly collecting and evaluating cerebrospinal fluid are detailed in Chapter 4.

Book Description :

Scientists have speculated as to the nature of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) - "the third circulation" or "vital spirit" for centuries. Just what is this mysterious bathing solution of the central nervous system? Is it a vehicle of transport for an "animal spirit" directing all our activities, as thought by Galen (Singer, 1956) or but a "modified tap water" (Halliburton, 1917)? With the advent of lumbar puncture, cerebrospinal fluid has become a readily available and important means of studying disease affecting the nervous system. In recent years, many sophisticated tools including com puter guided gas chromatography/mass spectrometry and high performance liquid chromatography have made it possible to identify and quantify many constituents of this fluid. The CSF has an enormous, though largely "untapped", potential in aiding diagnosis and evaluating treatment of many neurological, psychiatric and systemic disorders. As the ependyma is only a diffusional barrier between the CSF and extracellular fluid of the brain for many compounds, changes in the concentration of these compounds in the CSF may reflect disease processes in the brain.

Book Description :

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) proteins correlate with pathological changes that are hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease (AD). CSF biomarkers have been used in research settings to predict AD diagnosis and rate of cognitive decline, however their use in clinical settings is limited. Given their potential utility in identifying preclinical AD and in increasing diagnostic confidence in clinical settings, we sought to understand how clinicians use CSF biomarkers in conjunction with other clinical details to diagnose AD. Participants (N = 193) were physicians and other medical professionals who routinely evaluate older adults for neurodegenerative disease. In a within-subjects factorial design, participants were randomized and viewed normal, borderline, AD-consistent, or no CSF information along with two clinical vignettes portraying patients with borderline and mild AD symptoms. In addition, clinicians reported on their use and the utility of CSF lab results in clinical practice. Clinicians reported infrequent use and limited utility of CSF biomarkers in clinical practice, yet CSF biomarkers affected clinical decisions on two vignettes. AD-consistent CSF values made clinicians 6-12 times more likely to make an AD-related diagnosis, increased diagnostic confidence, and led clinicians to initiate treatment more often than other CSF values. Furthermore, clinicians relied on CSF evidence more heavily when AD-consistent CSF values were presented in the context of a borderline case of memory impairment. In sum, CSF biomarkers have a significant impact on clinical decisions, and show different effects depending on contextual factors. Therefore, as CSF biomarkers become more widespread in clinical practice, clinicians should consider the potentially significant effect of biomarkers on their clinical decisions.

Book Description :

In the spring of 1993 a meeting of the European Charcot Foundation was held in Bari as it was quite clear that there was a renaissance of Italian interest in cerebro spinal fluid. Two of the influential figures with a long-standing commitment to this field were Professor Paolo Livrea and Dr. Maria Trojano. At this meeting we con sidered the possibility of collecting together the various papers which had been presented, however the idea evolved further to the present volume, which incor porates a broader view. This starts with the anatomical approach, including neuro pathology, CSF cells and MRI correlations. It also includes virology, physiology of the blood-CSF barrier and the immunology of intrathecal responses. It further con siders the relevance of the CSF parameters to therapy. Finally, the importance of quality assurance and handling of the precious fluid is discussed. The original plan was to have the book published in Italian, but we are grateful to the publishers for allowing English text, in order to have a wider, international audience. As is fate of any book, interest in this area has been accelerated considerably; nevertheless we hope this provides a summary from a multi-disciplinary point of view. From a pu rely personal point of view, it certainly reflects the warmth of feeling which was evident at the meeting, and which led to the toast "Arrivederci, Bari". E. J.

Book Description :

In taking advantage of the abundant laboratory material of the neurological clinic of Heidelberg University and of the neurology department of Klinikum Charlottenburg of the Freie UniversiHit Berlin, Dr. KOLMEL has succeeded in producing a clinically representative cross-section of the cytologic phenoma in cerebrospinal fluid. There has long been a need for such an atlas. An introductory presentation on cell collection techniques and staining methods is both brief and precise. The excellent illustrations, which make up the most extensive part of the work, are the results of a sedimentation chamber technique. Dr. KOLMEL has developed a simple method to the point that it allows optimal reproduceability. If cytodiagnosis of the CSF - the most difficult and problem-ridden area of exfoliative cytology-achieves greater attention and wider application in the future, it will certainly be to the credit of the author and his meticulous efforts. I am convinced that the demand for this volume will be great. JOHANNES SA YK Director of the Department of Neurology The University of Rostock v Preface Cytologic examination of the cerebrospinal fluid is a technically simple but productive diagnostic procedure. This book attempts to provide guidance to neophytes in the field of cytology and hopes to provide stimulation to the more experienced.

Book Description :

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major cause of death and disability and one of the greatest unmet needs in medicine and public health. TBI not only has devastating effects on patients and their relatives but results in huge direct and indirect costs to society. Although guidelines for the management of patients have been developed and more than 200 clinical trials have been conducted, they have resulted in few improvements in clinical outcomes and no effective therapies approved for TBI. It is now apparent that the heterogeneity of clinical TBI is underlain by molecular phenotypes more complex and interactive than initially conceived and current approaches to the characterization, management and outcome prediction of TBI are antiquated, unidimensional and inadequate to capture the interindividual pathophysiological heterogeneity. Recent advances in proteomics and biomarker development provide unparalleled opportunities for unraveling substantial injury-specific and patient-specific variability and refining disease characterization. The identification of novel, sensitive, objective tools, referred to as biomarkers, can revolutionize pathophysiological insights, enable targeted therapies and personalized approaches to clinical management. In this Research Topic, we present novel approaches that provide an infrastructure for discovery and validation of new biomarkers of acute brain injury. These techniques include refined mass spectrometry technology and high throughput immunoblot techniques. Output from these approaches can identify potential candidate biomarkers employing systems biology and data mining methods.
