Jansen Steur, diosrders E. PD pathology, in the form of Lewy bodies and neurites, was now present in the grafts, raising the possibility of spread from diseased tissue to the young, transplanted neurons [ 4 — 6 ].


When, some years later, these patients came to autopsy, a startling observation was made: View at Google Scholar M. The Braak hypothesis is perhaps the currently best-accepted model of PD progression and would be highly consistent with a prion-like mechanism disrders spread. This is not an exhaustive representation; see [ 75759 ].

Prion-like acceleration of a synucleinopathy in a transgenic mouse model. – FPrime

In the latter case, Lewy bodies might mark those neurons resisting degeneration, which might actually be most active elsewhere [ 7 ]. Direct transfer of alpha-synuclein from neuron to astroglia causes inflammatory responses in synucleinopathies.


Of course, such problems are far from unique to this field. Alpha-synuclein in the neurodegenerative mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease and dementia with Lewy bodies.
