Specialized Dementia: A Type of Alzheimer’s Disease

Specialized Dementia: A Type of Alzheimer’s Disease

It was first described by Alois Alzheimer in 1906. At a scientific meeting in November 1906, German physician Alois Alzheimer presented the case of “Frau Auguste D.,” a 51-year-old woman brought to see him in 1901 by her family. Auguste had developed problems with memory, unfounded suspicions that her husband was unfaithful, and difficulty speaking and understanding what was said to her. Her symptoms rapidly grew worse, and within a few years she was bedridden. She died in spring 1906.Dr. Alzheimer had never before seen anyone like Auguste D., and he gained the family’s permission to perform an autopsy. In Auguste’s brain, he saw dramatic shrinkage, especially of the cortex, the outer layer involved in memory, thinking, judgment and speech. Under the microscope, he also saw widespread fatty deposits in small blood vessels, dead and dying brain cells, and abnormal deposits in and around cells. The condition entered the medical literature in 1907, when Alzheimer published his observations about Auguste D. In 1910, Emil Kraepelin, a psychiatrist noted for his work in naming and classifying brain disorders, proposed that the disease be named after Alzheimer.

Alzheimer''s Disease

Alzheimer''s Disease

Alzheimer''s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. Alzheimer''s disease is unique for every individual. In the early stages, the most commonly recognised symptom is inability to acquire new memories, such as difficulty in recalling recently observed facts. As the disease advances, symptoms include confusion, irritability and aggression, mood swings, language breakdown, long-term memory loss, and the general withdrawal of the sufferer as their senses decline. Gradually, bodily functions are lost, ultimately leading to death. It was found that among three natural compounds Bulbocapnine is the best natural compound and better than commercial drugs and hence can be taken as AD chemopreventive agent and it can be effective inhibitors for AchE in AD pathway.

Albinism in Two Islands of the Caribbean

Albinism in Two Islands of the Caribbean

The idea for this project was born out of a desire to document a real life experience within my family and is designed to raise awareness to the condition of albinism and impart and expose new knowledge about albinism and the related Hermansky Pudlak Syndrome. In the first ten years of my life all I knew was that two of my three my siblings had a lighter skin complexion than other members of the family. They had very poor eyesight and were prone to sunburn easily. Occasionally, they both had nosebleeds, which to a West Indian were attributed to the long periods spent in the sun. It was as a teenager I realised that my siblings were persons with albinism. In 1996 after about nine months of sudden unusual medical occurrences my brother, George Jnr, died at age 37. What a turmoil our family was thrown into to discover that he was among some 200 plus persons with Type 4 albinism who had some specific gene, which initiates all these medical complications that eventually caused his death. Sadly five years later in 2001, the family suffered the lost of my other sibling, Marlene, at age 50.
