Extractions: Autism is characterized by three distinctive behaviors. Autistic children have difficulties with social interaction, display problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and exhibit repetitive behaviors or narrow, obsessive interests. These behaviors can range in impact from mild to disabling. Autism varies widely in its severity and symptoms and may go unrecognized, especially in mildly affected children or when more debilitating handicaps mask it.

What are prophylactic medications for migraine headaches? What is the proper way to use preventive medications? What is the treatment for menstrual migraine? Conclusions What is a migraine headache? A migraine headache is a form of vascular headache. Migraine headache is caused by a combination of vasodilatation (enlargement of blood vessels) and the release of chemicals from nerve fibers that coil around the blood vessels. During a migraine attack, the temporal artery enlarges. (The temporal artery is an artery that lies on the outside of the skull just under the skin of the temple.) Enlargement of the temporal artery stretches the nerves that coil around the artery and causes the nerves to release chemicals. The chemicals cause inflammation, pain, and further enlargement of the artery. The increasing enlargement of the artery magnifies the pain.

Extractions: Autoimmune Neurological Disorders Today's most exciting frontier of OCD research stems from a remarkable finding reported in 1997 by psychiatrists Susan Swedo, Judith Rapoport and colleagues at the National Institutes of Mental Health. What the NIMH researchers have discovered is that childhood OCD is frequently associated with group A beta hemolytic streptococcal infectionsstrep throat! This research had its start a decade ago with the study of OCD's link to Sydenham's chorea, a now rare disease of childhood that was seen frequently before the age of antibiotics. Once known as Saint Vitus' dance, Sydenham's is characterized by the sudden onset of neurological symptoms ranging from mild clumsiness and a tendency to drop objects to unrestrained flailing of the arms and delirium. Sydenham's, it has been discovered, is an autoimmune disease. As with rheumatic fever, infections with streptococcal bacteria lead to the production of antibodies that double-cross the body: They kill not only streptococci but normal cells as well. In rheumatic fever, the heart is attacked; in Sydenham's chorea, the brain. Brain-imaging studies of people suffering Sydenham's chorea demonstrate inflamed, bulging basal ganglias. OCD has long been known to bear a relationship to Sydenham's, which is characterized by obsessions and compulsions in over half of all cases. Exploring this relationship, Swedo and colleagues asked this question: Could some routine cases of childhood OCD be caused, like Sydenham's, by autoimmune damage to the basal ganglia? They were astounded by the finding. It now appears possible that up to 25 percent of childhood OCD may, indeed, have this origin. On the horizon is the remarkable possibility that large numbers of children with OCD may be effectively treated with penicillin. University centers are already screening childhood OCDers for antistreptococcal antibodies and treating some cases with antibiotics. The NIMH researchers, whose offices are located not far from the National Zoo, have given a name to these immune system disorders that attack the basal ganglia: pediatric autoimmune neurobiological disorders associated with streptococci, or PANDAS.

Extractions: The purpose of this study is to establish the Neurological Disorders Database Repository (NDDR) that provides opportunity for longitudinal and vertical (cross-sectional) outcome analyses in individuals with and without the diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease and related disorders (ADRD). In this effort, the research team has develop a tripartite infrastructure of clinical, basic science, and information processing to allow the testing of different apriori investigator- developed hypotheses as well as new hypotheses generated from statistical database mining techniques. Clinical and basic science researchers and information specialists work as a team to develop the NDDR and implement investigative protocols. This will provide researchers a resource to cite in extramural grant proposals that demonstrates access to broad-based patient information. Awards from such grant applications are used to support maintenance and future expansion of the NDDR. Initially, the focus was on supporting specific research protocols related to Alzheimer's disease and related disorders. However, the NDDR is deliberately designed conceptually to permit the addition of research protocols focused on aspects of other neurological disorders or issues in an aging population. The establishment of the core of the NDDR supports the design and implementation of the 'Initial Encounter Form' for the collection of comprehensive medical history and current health status parameters. The core database will expand (after appropriate human assurance review) to include advanced algorithms with protocols addressing complicating co-morbidity of dementia, Alzheimer's disease and related behavioral disorders, family caregiver health, and caregiver-patient interrelationships. The core database has been structured such that new research questions can be added as the need arises.

The first report on measles, mumps, rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism was released in April 2001, the second report on thimerosal- containing vaccines and neurodevelopmental disorders was released in October 2001 and the third report, which addressed multiple immunizations and immune dysfunction, was released in February 2002.
