Melatonin, and sudden unexpected death in parkinson’s disease: do we have some good news?

Melatonin, and sudden unexpected death in parkinson’s disease: do we have some good news?

Research

According to epidemological studies conducted by the UN, the global population of elderly persons is estimated to further increase reaching 1.4 billion by 2030, 2.1 billion by 2050, and 3.2 billion by 2100 [1]. As life-expectancy is increasing, ageing is the most important risk factor for many neurodegenerative diseases driving both morbidity and mortality [1]. A recent review appropriately discussed the current knowledge about both sleep and circadian alterations in Parkinson's disease (PD) and provided recommendations regarding future research directions [2]. Despite recent advances in PD research, some issues have not been deeply debated.

White matter lesions on diffusion tensor imaging may not only be genetic in asymptomatic LHON carriers

White matter lesions on diffusion tensor imaging may not only be genetic in asymptomatic LHON carriers

Research

With interest we read the article [1] about a study of 14 asymptomatic Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON) carriers by means of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) measurements [1]. Except for the right inferior quadrant, RNFL thickness was not different between LHON carriers and healthy controls [1]. On the contrary, fractional anisotropy (FA), was decreased and radial diffusion (RD) and mean diffusion (MD) were increased in LHON carriers [1]. We have the following comments and concerns. Key words: optic atrophy; retinal ganglion cells; vision; white matter lesions; diffusion tensor imaging; mtDNA; oxidative phosphorylation; antioxidants.

Life cycle of the Spinach Moth, Hymenia recurvalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) on Purple Amaranth, Amaranthus blitum, in South-West Nigeria

Life cycle of the Spinach Moth, Hymenia recurvalis (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) on Purple Amaranth, Amaranthus blitum, in South-West Nigeria

Research

The life cycle stages of the spinach moth, Hymenia recurvalis (F.) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae), was studied on the host plant, purple amaranth, Amaranthus blitum L. (Caryophyllales: Amaranthaceae) and adults was fed with 5% honey-solution. The larva of these moths is a major defoliator of amaranths in Nigeria and could cause total yield loss.
