Book Description :

This volume provides concise and comprehensive information on neuromuscular disorders, including rapid advancements in the understanding of the neurobiology of neuromuscular transmission. In addition, clinicians will find timely discussions on the various forms of these disorders that have been discovered due to increased study within the field. New observations into the immunopathogenesis of myasthenia gravis, and the molecular mechanisms underlying the links between activity and patterns of gene expression, particularly in muscle, are also explored, along with novel information on the understanding of the pathophysiology of the heterogeneous group of peripheral nerve hyperexcitability syndromes. Each of these valuable insights, and their accompanying explanations, provides a framework on which new therapeutic strategies can be built to aid in the enhancement and restoration of normal function in neuromuscular junction disorders. * New insights into the study of neuromuscular junction disorders, including rapid advancements in the field * Comprehensive information on the neuromuscular junction, and a detailed examination of myasthenia gravis and other disorders * A new framework upon which to build therapeutic strategies that will enhance the restoration of normal function in neuromuscular disorders

Book Description :

The third edition of this important, gold-standard title outlines a range of significant advances in the study and understanding of myasthenia gravis. The overarching goal of this new edition is identical to the first and second -- to provide the clinician and the scientist with a common resource for understanding the profound achievements in the clinical, translational, and basic sciences of neuromuscular transmission disorders. In addition to several new authors and an extensive update of all chapters, this third edition includes summaries of pre-clinical research standards for autoimmune MG, along with a broad summary of MG clinical trial performance. The now greater understanding of the clinical presentation of MuSK-related MG and identification of potential new autoantigens, including LRP-4, is discussed. The development of treatment guidelines by groups in Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany, and an international consortium is also outlined. Myasthenia Gravis and Related Disorders, Third Edition, is an invaluable resource for meeting the many and varied needs of clinicians who treat patients with myasthenia gravis.

Book Description :

A 1-year-old spayed female Goldendoodle was presented to Cornell University Hospital for Animals' (CUHA) Emergency Service for evaluation of progressive weakness, regurgitation, and aspiration pneumonia following a 10-day history of regurgitation and weakness. General physical exam revealed increased lung sounds on the left, and neurological exam revealed tetraparesis, fatiguing palpebral reflexes, and weak patellar and withdrawal reflexes. Thoracic radiographs confirmed megaesophagus with secondary aspiration pneumonia. A Tensilon test was positive and the patient was started on pyridostigmine for presumptive myasthenia gravis. A nasogastric tube was placed to facilitate feeding. She was hospitalized for 7 days on intravenous antibiotics and supportive care for her aspiration pneumonia and had a positive response to treatment. An acetylcholine receptor antibody test (AChR-Ab) test was initially negative, but positive when retested 3 months after onset of clinical signs. This paper will discuss the workup, treatment, and long-term management of myasthenia gravis and aspiration pneumonia in our patient.

Book Description :

The Drosophila larval neuromuscular junction (NMJ) has become one of the most powerful model systems to ask key neurobiological questions. This synapse is unparalleled by its accessibility, its simplicity, and the ability to manipulate genes important for synapse development and function. Its synapses have properties shared by many organisms including humans. The vast majority of genes that when mutated cause congenital disorders of the nervous system in humans, are present in the fruit fly genome, and fly models of human disorders are available. Thus, this preparation is a powerful tool to understand the normal function of these genes. This book reviews outstanding work by recognized leaders in the fields of Drosophila cellular neurogenetics including developmental neurobiology, mechanisms of synaptic function, and experience dependent changes at synapses. The book also includes step-by-step protocols to study the cellular biology of the NMJ, making it a vital resource for researchers beginning their investigations with this system, for those who are training students and postdoctoral fellows in this area, or simply as a general reference material for neuroscientists and neuroscience professors in general. * Provides a synthesis of the main topics in modern neurogenetics * Includes step-by-step protocols for the use of the Drosophila NMJ system in neurobiology lab research * Offers genetic approaches to study synapse development and function *

Book Description :

After relentlessly studying the teachings of legendary healers, such as Dr Arnold Ehret and Dr Robert Morse, we set out on a journey of healing ourselves and reversing our very own conditions. Within our group, we were suffering from a range of diverse diseases and conditions, including Heart Disease, Kidney Disease, Diabetes, a variety of Autoimmune Diseases and Leaky Gut. During our healing journeys, we formed a journal that we would use on a daily basis, and this helped us to incorporate all of the lessons and tips that we had learnt and refined along the way - in short, it acted as a check list. It was important to us to not miss out on any knowledge and practices that had served us well. This journal is designed to guide and support you through your own journey with the core healing protocols included within its theme. One of the key conclusions that we reached through our individual journeys was that whether you are a sufferer of Genetic Neuromuscular Junction Disease, or any other condition, the same protocol that we used applies. However, dependant on the severity of your Genetic Neuromuscular Junction Disease, you may need to follow the protocols for longer, using specific herbs in order to achieve positive results, but you can make your own adjustments as you learn more. The great news is that all information and resources are readily available for personal study and application. Dr Arnold Ehret's books can be downloaded freely if you search for "arnold ehret books pdf". Visit rawfigs.com for Dr Robert Morse videos which can be searched through by keywords via the search bar. With this journal and your newly acquired knowledge, we trust that you will also soon start to experience the positive results that we did, along with the many others that send us regular positive feedback. We wish you all the best. The Health Formation Team

Book Description :

This compilation arises from contributions made to the seventh postgraduate course in paediatric neurology held in Pavia, Italy under the auspices of the Mariani Foundation in co-operation with the National Neurologic Institute of Milan. The course concentrated on three main areas: the impact of molecular biology and molecular genetics on aetiology, advances in our understanding pathogenesis, and finally therapy. The choice of the subject was suggested by the remarkable progress has been made in this field during the last decade, mostly due to the recent advances in genetics which now enable a new nosographic approach as well as different diagnostic strategies. Part of this work is dedicated to the rehabilitation of patients affected by neuromuscular diseases.
