New Research on Epilepsy

Researchers from the Neurology Research Group in the Swansea University Medical School found that exposure to #epilepsy drugs in the womb is linked to significantly poorer school test results among 7 year olds. Women with epilepsy who need drugs to control their seizures are currently advised to continue taking them during pregnancy because convulsions can harm both mother and the unborn child. Several studies indicate that epilepsy #drugs, particularly sodium valproate, taken during pregnancy, are associated with neurodevelopmental disorders, but few of these studies have been based on real-life population circumstances (population data). Prescription patterns were divided into five categories: treatment with one drug (carbamazepine, lamotrigine or sodium valproate); a combination of several drugs; and no drug treatment. Twenty (54%) of the 39 mums prescribed several drugs were taking sodium valproate, but there were 15 different drug combinations in all. The results showed that children born to mums who had been prescribed carbamazepine or lamotrigine, or nothing, performed just as well as those born to mums of the same age and deprivation level, but without epilepsy (comparison group). The researchers acknowledge that they weren't able to account for certain potentially influential factors, such as the mothers' IQ, weight or alcohol consumption; the doses of #epilepsy drugs prescribed; or intake of folic acid around conception....

Parkinson's Disease

In a recent #study it is proved that #physicallyfit women have nearly 90 percent less likely to develop #dementia then those who are #moderatelyfit. Results were obtained from a study which measured women's #cardiovascular fitness based on an exercise test.

A #compound in beets that gives the vegetable its distinctive red color could help slow the accumulation of misfolded proteins in the #brain, a process associated with #Alzheimer's disease.Scientists say this could lead to the development of drugs that could alleviate some of the long-term effects of the #disease, the world's leading cause of #dementia.
