Specifically, stem cell scientists at McMaster can now directly convert adult human blood cells to both central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) neurons as well as neurons in the peripheral nervous system
(rest of the body) that are responsible for pain, temperature and itch perception.
The chronic diarrhea that patients endure may arise from damage to the autonomic nervous system, a part of the peripheral nervous system
that extends away from the brain and spinal column.
Aging is associated with protein damage and imbalance in redox status in a variety of cells and tissues, yet little is known about the extent of age-related oxidative stress in the peripheral nervous system
In this study, we evaluated the frequency of peripheral nervous system
involvement with electrophysiological studies in RA patients whose neurological examination findings were within the normal range.
It starts in Chapter 1 by describing the peripheral nervous system
and its embryology.
The CeNeRx compounds were specifically designed so their activity is restricted to the peripheral nervous system
, with minimal or no central nervous system activity.
The 24-year-old, who debuts as Zak's sister Hayley in the Channel 4 soap this week, uses a wheel chair as a result of a disease of the peripheral nervous system
However, his career came to a halt when he contracted Guillain Barre syndrome - an acute disease of the peripheral nervous system
in which the nerves in arms and legs become inflamed and stop working.
Embryos were stained with markers to the CNS, peripheral nervous system
or trachea lumen and patterns were compared to controls.
The 12 articles here address sources of exposure ranging from recreational drugs to industrial chemicals, including MDMA (Ecstasy) and its effects on serotonin, certain pesticides and chemical warfare agents and their ability to induce muscle paralysis, local anesthetics and their possible link to ischemic injury or Alzheimer's Disease, alcohol and peripheral neuropathy, the deposition of amyloid peptides and Alzheimer's Disease, 3-nitropropionic acid and symptoms similar to Huntington's Chorea, antineoplastic drugs and damage to the peripheral nervous system
, side effects of chemotherapy, cefepime-induced encephalopathy, simulation of Parkinson's Disease, and the effects of overexposure to manganese.
To the Editor: Lyme disease is a multisystem disorder associated with skin, myocardial, musculoskeletal, and central and peripheral nervous system
manifestations caused by infection with Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato spirochetes (1).
The article also suggests how sensitisation of the peripheral nervous system
may take place, and that this should be a consideration in the clinical setting for the purposes of differential diagnosis.
