Studies have shown that in cases of reversible neuronal injury, such as axotomyneuron signals cause microglia to produce trophic factors, which promote neuron survival. Although the mechanisms which lead to astrogliosis are not fully understood, neuronal injury is well understood to cause astrocyte proliferation, and astrogliosis has long been used as an index for neuronal damage.

Beta blockers fliosis also seem very reasonable for this situation.

Usually these lesions are blamed on “small vessel disease”, with the idea that a small blood vessel closes off. In general after any CNS insult, gliosis begins after the blood brain barrier is disrupted, allowing non-CNS molecules, such as blood and serum components, to enter the brain.

More fluctuations in blood pressure, more chance for small blood vessels to close, more chance of head injury, more chance for little emboli. Progression of these lesions is associated with variability as well Liu et al, This is a moderate case. PWM are also correlated with vitamin B6 pyridoxine deficiency. Because gliosis is a dynamic process which involves a spectrum of changes depending on the type and severity of the initial insult, to date, no single molecular target has been identified which could improve healing in all injury contexts.

Definición de Gliosis – Meaning

Lin et al WML in patients with NO vascular gliosi factors. Hain has been emailed several times with vigorously phrased requests to weaken the language concerning the cognitive consequences of white matter lesions. While in their activated state, microglia may serve a variety of beneficial functions.


They say a picture paints a thousand words. Advances in Anatomic Pathology.

Oligodendrocytes are another type of glial cell which generate and maintain the formation of myelin around the axons of large neurons in the CNS, allowing for rapid transmission of neural signals.

Vascular processes include different types of small-vessel disease: Lacunes are also associated with cognitive disturbances Jokinen et al, Individuals with PVM lesions perform nearly 1 standard deviation below average on tasks involving psychomotor speed. The frequency of white matter lesions depends on your threshold for reporting them and population being studied.

These generally have a different look on MRI, as they often resemble “fingers” pointing towards the ventricles. Perhaps for this reason, the author of this page Dr. In all cases, however, some oligodendrocytes are lost, through necrosis or apoptosiswhile others survive and may form part of the glial scar along with myelin debris. Periventricular location of white matter lesions seem to cause the most serious consequences.

Ding et al, All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from February Commons category link is on Wikidata. Some of the many signalling molecules used in these pathways include the cytokines interleukin 6 IL-6ciliary neurotrophic factor CNTFand leukemia inhibitory factor LIF.

However, gliosis has been shown to have both beneficial and detrimental effects, and the balance between these is due to a complex array of factors and molecular signaling mechanisms, which affect the reaction of all glial cell types.

As once you have them, they are there for life, prevention is the main goal of treatment. Practically, PVM seem to be associated with severe consequences. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.

Gliosis – Wikipedia

Severe white matter lesions predict poor activities of daily living Yamashita et al, Reduced levels of microgliosis have been associated with reduced astrocyte numbers, which also suggests that microglia are important regulators of the degree of astrocyte activation. Small amounts of vitamin b6 pyridoxine supplementation also seem reasonable i. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


Fortunately these are relatively uncommon. Mayo Clinic Health Letter. A few of the most important effects of astrogliosis are listed below. This is lgiosis “stress is not good for you” connection. Accessed July 30, One notable microglial activation inhibitor is minocyclinewhich is a known suppressor of astrogliosis.

In cases of irreversible injury, however, microglia are induced to release neurotoxic factors that promote increased degeneration of the neuron and more rapid phagocytosis by the microglia. In other words, glkosis MRI is needed to make this decision. As diabetes is often correlated with being overweight, reducing calorie intake until the BMI becomes normal is prudent. These molecules, notably IL-1, initiate an inflammatory response in various cells including astrocytes that contributes to the gliosis yliosis.

People who have vascular risk factors such as diabetes, smoking, hypertensionhave more of these lesions. Teratogenesis and perinatal outcomes. Beta blockers such as propranolol and related medications may be especially suitable to prevention of spikes in blood pressure.

Indian Journal of Ophthalmology. Harden CL, et al. Neurostatin is also effective in the inhibition of other glial cells, and may be an area of interest in the treatment of degenerative diseases such as glaucoma.
