CCK receptors and human neurological disease

, : CCK receptors and human neurological disease. Life Sciences 31(4): 319-322

Cholecystokinin (CCK) receptor binding was measured in postmortem brain tissue of patients with Alzheimer's dementia, Huntington's chorea, and neurologically healthy matched controls. CCK binding was significantly reduced inthe basal ganglia and cerebral cortex of Huntington's patients, but was normal in the temporal and cingulate cortex of patients with Alzheimer's disease. These findings indicate that CCK receptor loss is unique to specific neurodegenerative disease(s), and that CCK may be involved in the symptoms of Huntington's disease but is not implicated in the neuropathology of Alzheimer's dementia.

Stroke volume variation (SVV) is being increasingly used to predict fluid responsiveness. Since radial arterial pressure (RAP) and femoral arterial pressure (FAP) frequently showing discrepancies during liver transplantation (LT), we sought to inv...
