Large Randomized FDA Trials Compare Two Common Procedures used for Cervical Disc Disease and Associated Radiculopathy

Thousands of Americans suffer from episodes of acute or persistent neck and arm pain every year as a result of underlying cervical disc disease. Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) has been the mainstay treatment for many years. This is the largest combined analysis of class 1 data to date comparing the efficacy of artificial disc surgery (arthroplasty) to the ACDF procedure.

Research Analyzes the Risks and Outcomes of Repeat Stereotactic Radiosurgery for Arteriovenous Malformations

An arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a tangle of abnormal and poorly formed blood vessels (arteries and veins), with an innate propensity to bleed. Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine assessed the risks and efficacy of repeat stereotactic radiosurgery in patients with AVMs.

Biologists Find Another Clue to the Origin of Neurodegenerative Diseases

A Tufts University research team shows that cell death in yeast can also result from the process by which the cell repairs damage that occurs within a repeated CAG/CTG sequence. Their findings increase understanding of how diseases like Huntington's develop in humans.

Hawaii Governor Declares “Brain Health Awareness Week,” April 9-16

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie has issued a state proclamation declaring the week of April 9-16, 2011, as “Brain Health Awareness Week” in the Aloha state. The proclamation coincides with two large events in Honolulu; the Brain Health Fair Saturday, April 9, and the American Academy of Neurology’s Annual Meeting at the Hawaii Convention Center April 9-16, which is the world’s largest meeting of neurologists with more than 9,000 attendees.

Brain-to-Computer Bridges Can Now Tune in Speech

Patients with a temporary surgical implant have used regions of the brain that control speech to “talk” to a computer for the first time, manipulating a cursor on a computer screen simply by saying or thinking of a particular sound.

Novel Link Found Between Parkinson's and Prostate Cancer

University of Utah School of Medicine researchers have found compelling evidence that Parkinson’s disease is associated with an increased risk of prostate cancer and melanoma, and that this increased cancer risk also extends to close and distant relatives of individuals with Parkinson’s disease .

Healthy Welders May Be at Increased Risk for Early Brain Damage

New research suggests that workers exposed to welding fumes may be at risk for developing brain damage in an area of the brain also affected in Parkinson’s disease. The study is published in the April 6, 2011, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.
