About this section


MedlinePlus:32 The brain is the control center of the body. it controls thoughts, memory, speech, and movement. it regulates the function of many organs. when the brain is healthy, it works quickly and automatically. however, when problems occur, the results can be devastating. inflammation in the brain can lead to problems such as vision loss, weakness and paralysis. loss of brain cells, which happens if you suffer a stroke, can affect your ability to think clearly. brain tumors can also press on nerves and affect brain function. some brain diseases are genetic. and we do not know what causes some brain diseases, such as alzheimer's disease. the symptoms of brain diseases vary widely depending on the specific problem. in some cases, damage is permanent. in other cases, treatments such as surgery, medicines, or physical therapy can correct the source of the problem or improve symptoms.

MalaCards based summary: Prion Disease, also known as transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, is related to chronic wasting disease and creutzfeldt-jakob disease. An important gene associated with Prion Disease is PRNP (prion protein), and among its related pathways are Pertussis and Creation of C4 and C2 activators. The compounds guanidine hydrochloride and tositumomab have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, cortex and testes, and related mouse phenotype immune system.

Disease Ontology:9 A brain disease that is characterized by brain damage resulting from the abnormal folding, clumping and accumulation of cellular proteins in the brain induced by prion proteins.

Genetics Home Reference:21 Prion disease represents a group of conditions that affect the nervous system in humans and animals. In people, these conditions impair brain function, causing changes in memory, personality, and behavior; a decline in intellectual function (dementia); and abnormal movements, particularly difficulty with coordinating movements (ataxia). The signs and symptoms of prion disease typically begin in adulthood and worsen with time, leading to death within a few months to several years.

NINDS:42 Transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), also known as prion diseases, are a group of rare degenerative brain disorders characterized by tiny holes that give the brain a "spongy" appearance. These holes can be seen when brain tissue is viewed under a microscope.
