Comparison of Quantitative Cerebral Blood Flow Measurements Performed by Bookend Dynamic Susceptibility Contrast and Arterial Spin-Labeling MRI in Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis.
 

Author(s): R M D'Ortenzio, S P Hojjat, R Vitorino, C G Cantrell, L Lee, A Feinstein, P O'Connor, T J Carroll, R I Aviv

Journal: AJNR Am J Neuroradiol. 2016 Dec;37(12):2265-2272.

 

Quantitative CBF usage as a biomarker for cognitive impairment and disease progression in MS is potentially a powerful tool for longitudinal patient monitoring. Dynamic susceptibility contrast perfusion with bookend T1-calibration (bookend technique) and pseudocontinuous arterial ...

ZFAT gene variant association with multiple sclerosis in the Arabian Gulf population: A genetic basis for gender-associated susceptibility.
 

Author(s): Sonia Bourguiba-Hachemi, Tebah K Ashkanani, Fatema J Kadhem, Wassim Y Almawi, Raed Alroughani, M Dahmani Fathallah

Journal: Mol Med Rep. 2016 Oct;14(4):3543-50.

 

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are useful genetic markers to investigate the onset of multiple sclerosis (MS). A genome wide association study identified 7 SNPs associated with interferon‑β therapy response, however, not with MS risk in a Spanish population. To investigate ...

Journal:

 

We conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) on multiple sclerosis (MS) susceptibility in German cohorts with 4888 cases and 10,395 controls. In addition to associations within the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region, 15 non-MHC loci reached genome-wide significance. ...

Iron in Multiple Sclerosis and Its Noninvasive Imaging with Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping.
 

Author(s): Carsten Stüber, David Pitt, Yi Wang

Journal:

 

Iron is considered to play a key role in the development and progression of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). In particular, iron that accumulates in myeloid cells after the blood-brain barrier (BBB) seals may contribute to chronic inflammation, oxidative stress and eventually neurodegeneration. ...

Modelling genetic susceptibility to multiple sclerosis with family data.
 

Author(s): Cullen O'Gorman, Rui Lin, James Stankovich, Simon A Broadley

Journal: Neuroepidemiology. 2013 ;40(1):1-12.

 

A genetic contribution to susceptibility is well established in multiple sclerosis (MS) and 57 associated genetic loci have been identified. We have undertaken a meta-analysis of familial risk studies with the aims of providing definitive figures for risks to relatives, performing ...

Sex-related factors in multiple sclerosis susceptibility and progression.
 

Author(s): Rhonda R Voskuhl, Stefan M Gold

Journal:

 

The pathogenesis of multiple sclerosis (MS) involves complex interactions between genetic susceptibility and environmental triggers. Clinical observations suggest that the study of sex differences might provide important insight into mechanisms of pathogenesis and progression of the ...
