Dr. Clemens Scherzer and colleagues at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases recently identified a potentially effective biomarker for early Parkinson's disease. They found that reduced expression levels of the alpha-synuclein (SNCA) gene--related to the αSyn protein implicated in disease progression--are associated with Parkinson's. This was true even for patients who did not yet have symptoms that meet standard diagnosis criteria. SNCA levels can be obtained from a simple blood test, creating a pathway toward earlier, improved diagnosis and more effective clinical trials. ‪#‎50Million‬

David Vago, PhD, was invited to teach the monastics with the Dalai Lama at one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in India before thousands of Tibetan Buddhist monks and nuns from monasteries across Asia. Vago presented on the neurobiology of self-processing based on a model created by himself and Dr. David Silbersweig. 
Since 1987 the Mind & Life Institute has organized regular dialogues between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and leading scientists and philosophers. The purpose of these meetings has been to creatively but critically investigate themes of mutual interest concerning the

Working toward potential treatment options for ALS, researchers at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases have identified a specific microRNA—a small RNA molecule that regulates gene expression—that is elevated in the blood and spinal fluid of patients with ALS and may play a key role in disease progression. Early, preclinical results have shown promise and the research team is now working with a pharmaceutical company to develop a drug aimed at this unique and promising target. #50MillionFaces

Researchers at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases are investigating the development of a nasal spray aimed at clearing the brain of the amyloid proteins responsible for forming the characteristic plaques that impair memory and cognitive function in patients with Alzheimer's disease. With promising results in the lab, Drs. Howard Weiner and Dennis Selkoe are now working with pharmaceutical companies in Canada and the Netherlands to manufacture a protollin-based nasal vaccine and move it forward toward clinical trials. ‪#‎50MillionFaces‬

For years, investigators have been looking into the role of alpha-synuclein (αSyn) in Parkinson's disease and its potential as a target for therapy. The research team at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases is screening for drugs that stabilize the aggregated form of αSyn with the hopes that this could prevent movement impairments and other symptoms experienced by those affected with Parkinson's disease. ‪#‎50MillionFaces‬

Glioblastomas, one of the most deadly forms of brain tumors, are known to suppress the immune system, making them exceptionally difficult to treat. Knowing that regulatory cells play an important role in down regulating the immune system, researchers at the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases have developed a highly specific antibody that targets these regulatory cells and removes them from the body. Early preclinical results have been promising and the team is now planning a clinical trial to test this antibody in humans. ‪#‎50MillionFaces‬

My father was brought to Brigham and Women's after a low speed motorcycle accident. Due to a brain bleed. Unfortunately after the initial care we felt almost forgot. Several times he was suppose to have diagnostic testing which was pushed back DAYS because of other emergencies. No one kept you appraised of delays. My family wanted to speak with a doctor, as we hadn't seen one in 3 days and a resident was sent down who was unable to answer any questions.

Can't say enough good things about this hospital. My wife saw her doctor due to some bleeding. This was followed by a biopsy and then a total hysterectomy. Everyone was very nice, efficient, and caring. She recovered from the operation much quicker than she could imagine. At the same time my brother-in-law collapsed while driving and after tests at his local hospital was rushed in to the Brigham for a heart bypass. He and his family praised everyone at the hospital and I can personally say that his room was the quietest, most spacious and comfortable hospital room I've seen.

I did use this hospital and affiliate services. I found it charged extremely high. Even if you are not a new patient, but it would charge you very high because you saw a new doctor. It the way US doctor and medical professions to make money or just this hospital? I think it is the hospital particularly.

My care through a hip surgery was excellent from beginning to end. I went from a VAMC clinic in another state, to B&WH, for evaluation, then due to red tape, much later to have pre op, then finally surgery & post op, & every single bit of it was excellent. I fact, I am considering moving to Boston, because of my care there. I am a polytrauma veteran, with many physical limitations & financial constraints, so a move for me is a very difficult process, & there are many obstacles, but I will do it if I can because my care was so excellent.

I cannot believe the complaining people do--seriously, do you think you would do better at home on your own? No. My experience with BWH is very good, and I think the problem is people expect far too much. Hospitals do the best they can, and you can blame, politicians, lawyers, etc. for the troubles most of them experience. I must say, I found the 1-star post about the horrible labor and delivery and end of sex life at 29 hilarious!! I can only assume it was a joke.
