  1. 1. Novel strategies for enzyme replacement with gene therapy in models of Parkinson’s disease

    Detta är en avhandling från Brain Repair and Imaging in Neural Systems (BRAINS)

    Författare :Erik Cederfjäll; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AAV vectors; dopamine; enzyme replacement; gene regulation; GTP cyclohydrolase 1; L-DOPA; tyrosine hydroxylase; Parkinson’s disease;

    Sammanfattning : Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder characterized by loss of dopaminergic neurons in the midbrain, resulting in the characteristic motor symptoms: resting tremor, rigidity, akinesia and postural instability. Symptomatic treatment is based on reconstituting the loss of dopamine in the brain, primarily by oral administration of its precursor L-DOPA. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Gene therapy by enzyme replacement for Parkinson’s disease Optimization of continuous DOPA delivery and development of a candidate vector for clinical application

    Detta är en avhandling från Lund University

    Författare :Tomas Björklund; [2009]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; serotonin; Parkinson’s disease; L-DOPA; dyskinesia; GTP cyclohydrolase 1; tyrosine hydroxylase; dopamine; gene therapy; enzyme replacement; gene regulation; aromatic L-amino acid decarboxylase;

    Sammanfattning : The introduction of L-DOPA pharmacotherapy revolutionized the treatment of Parkinson’s disease close to fifty years ago. Before the discovery of dopamine as a neurotransmitter and its involvement in the disease, these patients had very little aid from medication and were bound to a life without movement. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The main pathological feature in Parkinson's disease is the progressive loss of dopamine neurons in the midbrain, which in turn leads to the appearance of motor deficits such as akinesia/bradykinesia (loss/slowness of movements), rigidity, postural imbalance and tremor. To this day, there is no cure for the disease, but there are medications to relieve the symptoms. LÄS MER
