The papers compiled during this supplementum are a variety of the easiest con­ th tributions offered on the 19 Central-European Neurological Symposium (CNS 19) hung on June 29 - July 1, 1989 in Vienna. the most subject of this convention was once degenerative and age-associated neurological illnesses. In fresh a long time existence expectancy has dramatically elevated, at the very least within the industrialized nations. This has resulted in severe distortions of the so-called inhabitants pyramids that not seem like such yet start to virtually resemble cylinders. because of this "overaging" of the inhabitants, ailments which are linked to age became even more universal than ahead of. It was once hence greater than average to dedicate a congress of the CNS sequence to those very important neurological ailments. the subsequent fields of curiosity are coated: Age-associated reminiscence impairment (AAMI), Alzheimer's and different dementias, Parkinson's ailment and different flow problems, stroke and others. in regards to the de males­ tias, a few papers take care of prognosis using neuro-imaging tools reminiscent of MRI, CT, puppy and SPECT, others utilizing electrophysiological equipment. a big element within the early preclinical analysis of dementia is the inclusion of neuropsychological assessments to augment the opportunity of effec­ tive early therapy. additionally medications which are now lower than scientific research are mentioned and initial effects are presented.

On the contrary ubiquitin was mainly accessible in stage 2 and in "ghost" tangles, which were also positive for GFAP (due to the ingrowth of glial cell processes between the extracellularily located pathological fibrillar bundles). Ubiquitin reactivity was generally absent in early stage I-tangles. , 1987). By silver stain these neurones did not exhibit NFT. Ultrastructurally tau reactivity in such neurons was associated to single PHF. These data thus suggest, that immunostaining with tau antibodies renders the recognition of a very early stage of tangle formation, which precedes the morphological appearence of argyrophilic fibrillar inclusions.

These data thus suggest, that immunostaining with tau antibodies renders the recognition of a very early stage of tangle formation, which precedes the morphological appearence of argyrophilic fibrillar inclusions. This pattern of NFT immune reactivity we named "stage 0" tangles. These data could either mean that with maturation of tangles more and more ubiquitin is incorporated into the fibrils (ubiquitination), which finally 30 F.
