The major differential diagnosis of CANVAS are spinocerebellar ataxia type 3 (SCA3), Friedreich ataxia (FRDA
), multiple system atrophy of cerebellar type, and Wernicke encephalopathy .
FA arises from a FRDA
(X25) gene mutation in the qI3-q21.1 region of the 9th chromosome (24).
Although several studies provided evidence that ROS generated through Fenton reaction play a role in FRDA
, the primary involvement and the importance of ROS in the pathophysiology of FRDA
are still debated .
The insulator protein CTCF is one possible candidate for this mechanism because it has been identified in the flanking regions of FRAXA CGG repeats , DM1 CTG repeats , and also in the upstream regions of FRDA
GAA repeats .
The proceeds will be reportedly be used by Agilis for developing a treatment for Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA
), a rare genetic neurodegenerative disease.
Since known mitochondria' diseases and FRDA
share some clinical manifestations, mitochondrial disturbance in the etiology of FRDA
has long been suspected.
ADLS has been, however, designed as a scale for patients with balance impairment, which--as was noted--is a typical symptom for FRDA
and AD SCA patients.
