Motor neuron disease (MND), also commonly known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), is a chronic neurodegenerative disorder of the motor system in adults, characterized by the loss of motor neurons in the cortex, brain stem and spinal cord. This book presents current research from across the globe in the study of the causes, classification and treatments of MND, including membrane trafficking defects as determinants of motor neuron susceptibility and degeneration in ALS; motorneuron specific calcium dysregulation and perturbed cellular calcium homeostasis in ALS; stem cells and their application in ALS treatment; excitotoxicity and selective motor neuron degeneration and therapeutic invervention and assistive technology treatments.

Book Description :

Motor Neurone Disease is one of the most difficult conditions to manage medically and socially. A disease which leads to the loss of control of most muscle systems of the body, it has no known cause and no cure. For this reason, clinicians have traditionally been reluctant to reveal the diagnosis to sufferers or their families and the condition has become known as one of the best kept secrets of medical practice. However in recent years a number of organizations have set up to support sufferers and their families and consequently, the public profile of the condition has changed dramatically. Motor Neurone Disease provides an extremely helpful guide to the medical facts relating to the condition and considers the psycho-social effects on sufferers and those who care for them. It will be essential reading for doctors, nurses, social workers, physio-, speech and occupational therapists as well as all those suffering from Motor Neurone Disease, their families and carers.

Book Description :

Motor neuron disease (MND) is a common but devastating disability that has a profound impact on people's lives. This book provides an easily-accessible guide to the disease for patients with motor neuron disease and their carers. The authors have organised it around a series of the commonest questions asked in their clinic, emphasising the variation in the course of MND and the individual nature of the patient journey through the disease. After an initial description of the symptoms for MND and how neurologists make the diagnosis the authors describe what is known about the causes and how scientists are trying to understand the disease. The book also looks at how a team of specialists can provide support and symptom control for the patient.

Book Description :

The motor neuron diseases (or motor neuron diseases) (MND) are a group of progressive neurological disorders that destroy motor neurons, the cells that control voluntary muscle activity such as speaking, walking, breathing, and swallowing. Neurological examination presents specific signs associated with upper and lower motor neuron degeneration. Signs of upper motor neuron damage include spasticity, brisk reflexes and the Babinski sign. Signs of lower motor neuron damage include weakness and muscle atrophy. Every muscle group in the body requires both upper and lower motor neurons to function. It is a common misconception that "upper" motor neurons control the arms, while "lower" motor neurons control the legs. The signs described above can occur in any muscle group, including the arms, legs, torso, and bulbar region. Symptoms usually present between the ages of 50-70, and include progressive weakness, muscle wasting, and muscle fasciculations; spasticity or stiffness in the arms and legs; and overactive tendon reflexes. Patients may present with symptoms as diverse as a dragging foot, unilateral muscle wasting in the hands, or slurred speech. This new book presents the latest research from around the globe.

The volume summarizes the most recent knowledge in the field of motor system (upper and lower motor neuron) physiology and pathophysiology as related to diseases of this system. It covers the various aspects of motor system disorders from the motor cortex to the spinal anterior horn cell. Emphasis is placed on clinical disorders as they affect the human motor system and includes critical discussion of advances in techniques for diagnosing and understanding the pathophysiology of disorders affecting the motor system, describing approaches to characterization of disease type, location, severity and prognosis. There is discussion of the specificity and sensitivity of methodological techniques used in diagnosis, with comparison among the various methods.

Book Description :

ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is the most common of the motor neuron diseases that cause muscle atrophy. ALS is a chronic, progressively debilitating disease characterised by progressive muscle atrophy starting in the limbs and spreading to the rest of the body, often accompanied by overactive reflexes. It usually manifests itself after the age of 40. The exact cause of ALS is unknown and there is no cure at this time. ALS may be fatal in one year or continue for 10 or more years. This new book includes leading edge research from around the world and covers the aetiology, pathogenesis, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Book Description :

A diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also known as Lou Gehrig's disease or motor neuron disease) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder that exerts a notorious life-shortening physical toll. Understandably, clinicians are keen to avoid a wrong diagnosis when there are such serious consequences, but any delay in diagnosis can result in unnecessary, and sometimes harmful, interventions, and prevents prompt implementation of much-needed physical and emotional support. Starting from the premise that ALS is not one disease but a syndrome, with a spectrum of upper and lower motor neuron involvement, this highly readable resource examines the causes of diagnostic delay and how to avoid them. With no diagnostic test to confirm the disease, no mandatory investigations and very few plausible 'ALS mimics', the authors take a pragmatic approach to what must always be a clinical diagnosis. With case presentations and teaching points to aid understanding, 'Fast Facts: ALS' will give clinicians the confidence to confirm or exclude a diagnosis of ALS, so that individuals facing this most challenging of conditions can receive rapid multidisciplinary support to maximize the quality of their remaining life. Contents: • Defining the syndrome • Epidemiology and pathophysiology • The first symptoms • Differential diagnosis • Investigations • Emerging diagnostic biomarkers
