Biography:

Prof. Andjus is the founder and current Head of the Centre for laser microscopy, University of Belgrade Faculty of Biology and president of the Serbian Brain Council. In 1981 he graduated in Molecular Biology and Physiology at the University of Belgrade and obtained his MSc and PhD in Biophysics at the same University. He was trained in the Institute for Biological Physics - Pushchino (USSR), MBL - Woods Hole (USA) and obtained a postdoc fellowship in SISSA, Neurobiophysics, Trieste (Italy). His current research within the Centre for laser microscopy that he founded in 2004 is mainly devoted to the cellular mechanism of pathophysiology in models of neurodegenerative diseases and conditions by means of confocal microscopy, time-resolved video microscopy and electrophysiology.

Abstract:

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a complex neurological disorder characterized by fatal and selective degeneration of both upper and lower motor neurons, with glial cells playing an important role in the non-cell autonomous disease mechanism. Compromised astrocytic function as well as the involvement of immune-mediated mechanisms have been long recognised. Our previous study demonstrated that the purified IgGs from ALS patients enhance the mobility of acidic vesicles in cultured rodent astrocytes in a Ca2+ dependent manner (inducing IP3-mediated calcium release and entry of extracellular calcium through SOCE channels, with the activation of PI3K upstream of PLC). In the present study we further investigated the acute effect of ALS IgGs and their Fab fragments alone on cytosolic Ca2+ ([Ca2+]i) in rat astrocytes loaded with the calcium-sensitive dye Fluo-4 AM. Time-lapse imaging obtained with 1 s time resolution showed that all purified ALS IgG Fab fragments alone evoked [Ca2+]changes, with some of them mimicking the effect of the whole IgG. In parallel we also show alterations in calcium homeostasis in primary microglial and hippocampal neuronal cell cultures upon ALS IgG acute treatment. These humoral immune factors induce transient calcium rise and/or an increase in spontaneous network activity of hippocampal neurons in culture. The detailed characterization of calcium responses in different neural cell types will elucidate the subtle intracellular processes and intercellular interactions as promising biomedical diagnostic targets that might help in stratifying patients and lead to the personalized treatments of this complex neurodegenerative disease.

Biography:

Despoina Drivakou has completed her Bsc of Psychology and then continued with a Msc in Medicine school. Now she is a PhD candidate in medicine school. She has comleted a four year training in systemic aproach psychotherapy too. Despoina Drivakou has a long experience working with people with dementia in a nursing house in Thessaloniki- KREOUZIOS- and teaching experience aswell. Last year one of the subjects she was  teaching was  Cognitive impairement in elderly populations, in Metropolitan College-Thessaloniki. She is a private practice psychologist / psychotherapist in Thessaloniki. President and co-founder of the NGO EP7A, working for health promotion.

Abstract:

This oral presentation is based on a 4 year practice in KREOUZIOS nursing house, cited in Thessaloniki-Greece. The dynamic of this nursing house is 52 patients, 9 nurse, 2 clearing staff and 1 doctor. The criteria for someone to have a bed in this place, was to have a type of dementia or  other neurological deficiency, like Parkinson or stoke patients, a not self -service person, because of mobility problems or when a rehabilitation center couldn’t provide any more help to the patient. A part of the cost for the hospitalization comes from the NHS, and the other half  is coming from the personal income. Most of the patients are coming to the nursing house and they live there till the end of their life’s.

Living with dementia in a nursing house, is quite difficult when there are no daily activities and impacts. Life turns boring and misserable, specially when the only interest every day is the feeding procedure, medication and hyginience procedure or doctors daily  visits. My first day in kreouzios nursing house was one of the most horrible days of my career. I Will neve forge the feeling in my stomachi when I metà the condizioni in this pace. There was no plan, no schedule for activities and the stuff was comletely brune out. I ha to decide chat I soul do. First the stuff? Or the patients?

Afte 2 year of  practice I ha some rally intestina resulta to bot direstino- stuff and patients.

Afte 4 year of practice  I col noti ce more possibiliste and opportuniste. This experience in KREOUZIOS nursing house was full of challenger. Some Times full of disapointments , Others Times fruitfull and memorabile moment.

Biography:

Aleksandra Borowska-Solonynko currently works at the Forensic, Medical University of Warsaw. Aleksandra does research in Forensic Science, Pathology and Emergency Toxicology. Her most recent publication is 'Isolated condylar fractures diagnosed by post mortem computed tomography.

Abstract:

The detection of intracranial gas (ICG) in people who died due to trauma became possible once postmortem computed tomography (PMCT) became available in addition to traditional post-mortem examinations. The aim of this study was to determine the importance of ICG in the context of medico-legal opinions. We assessed 159 cases of trauma-induced death. Cadavers with pronounced signs of decomposition, open skull fractures, and after neurosurgical operations were excluded. Both PMCT findings and data from autopsy reports were analyzed. ICG was found in 38.99% (n = 62) of the cadavers, 96.77% (n = 60) of which presented with pneumocephalus (PNC) and 40.23% (n = 25) with intravascular gas (IVG). There was a strong correlation between ICG and skull fractures/brain injuries, as well as chest injuries, especially lung injuries. In 13 cases, ICG presented without skull fractures; three of these cases died as a result of stab and incised wounds to the neck and chest. The mean time between trauma and death was significantly longer in the non-ICG group than the ICG group at 2.94 days (0–48 days) and 0.01 day (0–1 day), respectively (p < 0.0001). The presence of ICG is a result of severe neck and chest injuries, including stab and incised wounds. The victims die in a very short amount of time after suffering trauma resulting in ICG. The ability to demonstrate ICG on PMCT scans can be of significance in forming medico-legal opinions.

Biography:

Huang Wei Ling, born in Taiwan, raised in Brazil since the age of one, graduated in medicine in Brazil, specializing in infectious and parasitic diseases, General Practitioner, Parenteral and Enteral Medical Nutrition Therapist, Acupuncture and Pain Management Practitioner. Since 2007, she has been disseminating the knowledge of Oriental medicine, especially Traditional Chinese Medicine, in various places around the world, in the treatment of the various pathologies of the human body. Owner of Medical Acupuncture and Pain Management Clinic.


Abstract:

Statement of the Problem: Dementia is a term for conditions characterized by decline in memory, language, and problem-solving. In TCM, the kidney energy plays a significant whole in memory.

Purpose: To demonstrate that dementia may not be associated with the brain, being only a reflex of a general energy deficiency condition.

Methods:  Two case reports. First, S.S, 92-year-old female patient, Alzheimer diagnosis (2016).  The patient lost the vision of both eyes in 1988 (glaucoma). The symptoms presented were: refusing to take shower, necessity of washing the hands all the time, urinary incontinence, and hallucinations. She started to treat these conditions with high-concentrated medication and started losing memory and physical energy. She started to complain of pain on the knees, back and joints. Physical therapy and exercise was not effective. TCM treatment was searched by the family. The second patient: B.N.C, 84-year-old female. Diagnosed with diabetes type 2, hypertension, gallbladder problems, headache and rhinitis, but was still able to perform daily activities normally. In 2017, she started presenting tremors, extreme fatigue and chronic urinary infection. Treatment with antibiotics was done for months, with no improvement. Both patients performed treatment with Chinese dietary counselling, auricular acupuncture associated with apex ear bloodletting and systemic acupuncture. Both received measurement of the chakras, which were all completely depleted, level 1 of 8 (except the 7th).  They received treatment for replenishment of the chakras with crystal-based medication and homeopathy, according to Constitutional Homeopathy of the Five Elements created by the author. High-concentrated medications use were reduced.

Anne-Liis von Knorring  M.D/ Professor  asChild & Adolescent Psychiatry, Department of Neuroscience Uppsala University Hospital She has published More than 100 scientific publications papers in journals and has been Membership professional .Research areas: Diagnostic issues in adult and child psychiatry, Epidemiology, Longitudinal studies of schizophrenia, mood disorders,Membership professional : Swedish Medical Association, Swedish Medical Society Swedish Psychiatric Association,  Scandinavian College of Neuropsychopharmacology

Abstract:

In Sweden hundreds of psychologically traumatized refugee children have been affected by a longstanding disorder: “resignation syndrome” during the last two decades. The onset can be acute in connection with a negative decision in their asylum process or as a result of a progressive depression during the long waiting time for a decision. The first symptom is the child´s resistance to eat and drink and at the same time he/she becomes mute. Within days the general mobility is lost and so also the sensibility for cold and pain. The children usually come to hospital in this state with no formal or emotional contact. After hydration tube-feeding in the home is initiated. The authors have now explored more than 60 of these children and followed their disease and the recovery. After bringing security into the family, usually with a residency permit, the children slowly start to recover after 1-6 months usually by opening the eyes and starting to move the extremities. Usually the children start going to school part time after 6-12 months. Depressive symptoms are common long after recovery.
 
Most children come from ethnic minorities in the former Soviet union or Balkan. The reason for leaving their country has been persecution and trauma occurring to family members and the child self. Many have developed PTSD and/or Depression. The acute threat of deportation back to the place of the trauma re-activates their unbearable fear and stress and causes the catatonia like condition.

Abstract:

Stem cells are the pluripotent cells residing in many adult tissues beyond their presence in embryonic stages of life. They have recently been focused on many investigational studies due to their granting the chance of reversing or improving cognitive dysfunction in many insulting events to the brain. These cells have two distinctive abilities: reproducing and renewing themselves as non-differentiated cells or differentiating into other specialized cell lines. In some adult tissues of their normal residence, stem cells regularly contribute to the repair or replacement of the injured cells, yet in other organs like the brain and heart, they just achieve functionality as differentiated effector cells under some specialized conditions.

Neural stem cells in mammalian adults reside in the subgranular zone (SGZ) of the hippocampus, subventricular zone (SVZ), and olfactory bulb (OB). A growing number of studies have shown in cortical injuries that neuroblasts originating from SVZ stem/progenitor cells find their migratory way to the penumbra area of the injured brain tissue and differentiate into neurons and glial cells to replace the lost neurons. In addition, in preclinical investigation of experimental brain insults and some clinical studies, bone-marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have shown their high capability in regenerating and replacing the lost neurons and forming and integrating synapses, restoring the blood-brain barrier integrity and decreasing edema, resolving and modulating neuroinflammation, as well as activating the microglia and reducing brain parenchymal deposition of amyloid-β. MSCs can be administered through intraparenchymal and intracerebroventricular routes with all the advantages and drawbacks. However, when MSCs are injected intravenously they are stuck in the pulmonary circulation where they exert their beneficial effect to the brain by sending paracrine messages through releasing peptides like TSG-6 and TIMP. Recently, stem cell-based treatment of Parkinson’s Disease seems to be promising in checking the course of this disabling disorder.

In this review, the ability of stem cells in restoring the cognitive function of the brain is discussed.
