The re-analysis presented at AAN shows that, consistent with TECFIDERA's effects on other measures of MS disease activity, the treatment significantly slowed the rate of whole brain volume loss by 35.9 percent during the second year of treatment compared to placebo.
They include t-tau, whole brain volume, total hippocampal volume, and systolic blood pressure.
The secondary MRI endpoints included the number of new or enlarging hyperintense T2-weighted brain MRI lesions over 12 months, number of gadolinium-enhanced brain MRI lesions at month 12 and % change from baseline in whole brain volume at month 12.
The following formulas were used: VT = 2.0 x [SIGMA][Tn-1 +Tn/2]; VS = 2.0 x [SIGMA][Sn-1 + S n/2], where n[greater than or equal to] 2, 2.0: 2 mm-interval, VT: whole brain volume, Tn: pixels of the whole brain; VS: infarction volume, Sn: pixel of the infarction region.
In a cross-sectional study of 264 patients with multiple sclerosis (mean age, 47 years; mean disease duration, 14.6 years) and 69 healthy controls, increased summer sun exposure during the preceding 2 years was associated with increased brain gray matter volume (p < 0.02) and increased whole brain volume (p = 0.004), after adjusting for disability and serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels.
Studies have shown that, when compared to nondiabetic people of similar age, diabetics have an average of 4% smaller hippocampal volume, a nearly 3% reduction in whole brain volume, and double the risk of mild cognitive impairment.
However, at 10 years, there was only a nonsignificant trend toward decreased whole brain volume among patients with disease progression.
However, he did note that there was a significantly small (4%) decrease in the whole brain volume after six months of CPAP treatment.
On average, whole brain volume and both gray and white matter volumes decreased by 3%-10% in the first few months after severe TBI.
In the second stud26 brain MRIs of 19 adolescents with major depression and 38 healthy control adolescents found smaller brains in the depressed subjects, measured by whole brain volume. In the frontal lobes, the depressed adolescents had smaller frontal white matter and larger frontal gray matter volumes, compared with controls (Biol.
