UF researchers find that 'peanut butter' test can help diagnose Alzheimer's disease
GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- A dollop of peanut butter and a ruler can be used to confirm a diagnosis of early stage Alzheimer's disease, University of Florida Health researchers have found. Jennifer Stamps, a graduate student in the UF McKnight Brain Institute Center for Smell and Taste, and her colleagues reported the findings of a small pilot study in the Journal of the Neurological Sciences. Stamps came up with the idea of using peanut butter to test for smell sensitivity while she was working with Dr. Kenneth Heilman, the James E. Rooks distinguished professor of neurology and health psychology in the UF College of Medicine's department of neurology.She noticed while shadowing in Heilman's clinic that patients were not tested for their sense of smell. The ability to smell is associated with the first cranial nerve and is often one of the first things to be affected in cognitive decline. Stamps also had been working in the laboratory of Linda Bartoshuk, the William P. Bushnell presidentially endowed professor in the College of Dentistry's department of community dentistry and behavioral sciences and director of human research in the Center for Smell and Taste. https://ufhealth.org/ "Dr. Heilman said, 'If you can come up with something quick and inexpensive, we can do it,'" Stamps said. She thought of peanut butter because, she said, it is a "pure odorant" that is only detected by the olfactory nerve and is easy to access.

Little horses make a big difference in patients' recovery
GAINESVILLE, Fla. ― They're small and cute with fuzzy manes and click-clacking hooves, but perhaps most importantly, miniature horses are now helping patients recover from illnesses and injuries at Shands Rehab Hospital. Training sessions with Gentle Carousel Miniature Therapy Horses are the newest form of therapy at the hospital and have become a staple for patients on Wednesday afternoons. "No one plans to go to rehab," said Andrea Gilbert, a Shands staff occupational therapist. "Life threw a curveball, and now everything is hard. But the horses give (our patients) a reason to smile." An activity session entails a horse and a person working together to achieve similar goals. The pair practices walking over different surfaces, going up and down stairs, and working on focus and balance skills.

Florida coastal seaweed could help the body fend off cancers and inflammatory diseases
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — A new defense against prostate cancer, the most common cancer in men in the United States, may come from a seaweed found off the coast of Florida. University of Florida pharmacy researchers have screened various seaweeds with cancer-preventive potential and identified one that shows particular promise. They isolated specific compounds in this common green alga, known as sea lettuce, and undertook studies to understand exactly how they work. Their findings, published Sept. 4 in Cancer Prevention Research, show how the species may protect multiple organs from disease and may be particularly effective in preventing prostate cancer. Sea lettuce is commonly consumed in Asian countries where the risk of prostate cancer is low, but there have been no rigorous studies to verify the correlation, said Hendrik Luesch, Ph.D., an associate professor of medicinal chemistry in the UF College of Pharmacy, a part of UF Health. Luesch's marine natural products laboratory offers the first investigation of this seaweed's cellular functions, revealing specific mechanisms that contribute to its anti-inflammatory and anti-tumor properties and identifying its active chemical ingredients. "We now have scientific evidence that this seaweed raises the body's antioxidant defense system and therefore might potentially prevent a number of diseases, including cancer," said Luesch. "This mechanism appears to be most relevant to prostate cancer." Scientists have long believed that seaweeds, a staple of Asian diets, may lower cancer risk in Western populations. When Luesch investigated at the molecular level, he identified key factors that support the hypothesis, including which seaweeds might provide the most protection. https://ufhealth.org/ http://pharmacy.ufl.edu/

UF researchers conduct deep brain stimulation in Alzheimer's patient
GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- Researchers at the University of Florida have performed deep brain stimulation on a patient with Alzheimer's disease as part of a clinical trial studying whether the treatment can slow progression of the disease. Called the Advance Study, the multicenter clinical trial will evaluate whether using electrodes to stimulate a part of the brain called the fornix can slow memory decline and improve cognitive function in patients in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. The trial is taking place at four sites across the United States, including UF. "The goal of treating Alzheimer's disease with neuromodulation is to try to enhance what patients have and slow down memory loss and the process of the disease so they can have a few more years of good function," said Dr. Michael Okun, co-director of the UF Center for Movement Disorders and Neurorestoration and a site principal investigator for the study. "This is a potentially exciting symptomatic therapy." Characterized by memory loss and a steady decline in cognitive abilities, Alzheimer's disease affects as many as 5.1 million Americans, according to the National Institute on Aging. Deep brain stimulation is used to treat a variety of conditions, including Parkinson's disease, dystonia and Tourette syndrome. In the procedure, researchers carefully place electrodes in specific regions of the brain. When these electrodes are turned on, they send electrical signals that prompt a therapeutic response.

UF veterinarians save dog stricken with tetanus infection
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Today a 6-month-old labradoodle from Tavares wrestles with her owners and runs like a normal puppy, but normal she will never be to anyone who watched her monthlong struggle in intensive care at the University of Florida Small Animal Hospital, where veterinarians fought to save her from a severe tetanus infection. Mocha Delight, or Mocha, as her owners call her, had the most severe case of tetanus ever seen or treated by UF veterinarians. When she arrived at UF on Nov. 13, no one thought she would survive. "No one here can remember ever being able to treat and save an animal so severely affected by this type of infection," said Dr. Alessio Vigani, a veterinary resident in emergency and critical care at UF. "When she arrived, she was in a constant state of tetany. All of her muscles displayed extreme rigidity and she was unable to eat. If you visualize a bearskin rug, that's what she looked like; she was completely flat. That she could pull through at all is nothing short of a miracle." Tetanus is caused by a neurotoxin released by the bacterium Clostridium tetani. Spores of the bacterium can survive in the soil for years and in the body for months, usually entering through minor punctures or scratches. Once in the body, the toxin spreads, causing painful muscle spasms in the neck, arm, legs and stomach.

Fear factor: Study shows brain's response to scary stimuli
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Driving through his hometown, a war veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder may see roadside debris and feel afraid, believing it to be a bomb. He's ignoring his safe, familiar surroundings and only focusing on the debris; yet, when it comes to the visual cortex, a recent study at the University of Florida suggests this is completely normal. The findings, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, show that even people who don't have anxiety disorders respond visually at the sight of something scary while ignoring signs that indicate safety. This contradicts a common belief that only people with anxiety disorders have difficulty processing comforting visual stimuli, or safety cues, said Andreas Keil, Ph.D., a professor in UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. "We've established that, in terms of visual responding, it's not a disorder to not respond to a safety cue," Keil said. "We all do that. So now we can study at what stage in the processing stream, with given patients, is the problem occurring." Co-authors Keil and Vladimir Miskovic, Ph.D., both members of the UF Center for the Study of Emotion and Attention, examined the effect of competing danger and safety cues within the visual cortex. The study results could help distinguish between normal and abnormal processes within the visual cortex and identify what parts of the brain are targets for the treatment of anxiety disorders.

Marine compound discovery shows promise of improved drug treatment for COPD patients
GAINESVILLE, Fla. --- Pharmacy researchers at the University of Florida have isolated a new marine compound they believe may lead to improved drug therapies for pulmonary diseases by inhibiting their progression rather than managing their symptoms. Known as symplostatin 5, the compound was extracted from blue-green algae collected in Cetti Bay, Guam, by Hendrik Luesch, the Frank A. Duckworth eminent scholar chair in drug research and development. The new compound targets an enzyme overactive in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, acute respiratory distress syndrome, cystic fibrosis and other diseases. "These compounds can potentially offer a new opportunity to treat COPD and related diseases in a different way and possibly more effectively," Luesch said. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 120,000 Americans each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Current therapies alleviate symptoms of COPD, but do not slow disease progression. Only one drug, Sivelestat, targets the enzyme, called elastase, but its marginal effects are delaying further clinical approvals, Luesch said. Elastase is an enzyme that breaks down a variety of proteins. In COPD, where there is excessive enzyme activity, this contributes in part to lung damage and inflammation. The effects of elastase on these processes contribute to the irreversible destruction of lung tissues typically observed in COPD patients. Lilibeth Salvador, a researcher in Luesch's Marine Natural Products lab, led the investigation published Feb. 14 in the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry. The study revealed that the blue-green algae prevented elastase-driven changes in bronchial connective tissue cells. She is also presenting the findings at the college's 26th Annual Research Showcase on Thursday. Salvador, who will earn her doctorate from the UF College of Pharmacy in May, uses a soccer analogy to describe how the compound may prove to be a more effective drug therapy.

Alarming trends in stimulant use in kids
GAINESVILLE, Fla. ---Two-thirds of young people surveyed said the use of prescription stimulants is a moderate-to-large problem among youth, according to a new University of Florida study. Nearly 15 percent said they had used a prescription stimulant, the study shows, and almost 12 percent reported diverting medications by giving their stimulants to a peer or taking someone else's pills. The National Monitoring of Adolescent Prescription Stimulants Study involved surveys of more than 11,000 youth ages 10 to 18 from urban, rural and suburban areas in and around 10 U.S. cities. It is the first national study to monitor prescription stimulant use in both preteens and teens, including non-medical use, with significant details for each topic. The study findings appear in the September issue of the journal Current Opinion in Psychiatry. Other studies have documented teens and college students using prescription stimulants non-medically as "study drugs" to enhance concentration. Stimulants such as Ritalin, Adderall and Concerta are typically prescribed to help patients with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder stay focused and to control behavior problems. But when the drugs are taken incorrectly or without a prescription, they can increase blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature and decrease sleep and appetite, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. At high doses, they can lead to cardiovascular problems. https://ufhealth.org/

UF develops online screening tool to help caregivers identify at-risk older drivers
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The University of Florida has launched a free, online tool to help caregivers and family members identify drivers age 65 and older who may be at-risk for driving problems. The Fitness-to-Drive Screening Measure can be completed by caregivers or family members who have been a passenger in a vehicle driven by an older driver within the past three months. After completing the questionnaire, users receive a rating profile of the older driver, recommendations that can be shared with health professionals and links to resources, such as availability of alternative transportation options. While an on-the-road evaluation, conducted by an occupational therapist who is a certified driving rehabilitation specialist, is ideal for assessing an older adult's driving ability, it's not accessible to everyone because of the cost and the limited number of professionals who can administer the test, said Sherrilene Classen, Ph.D., M.P.H., the tool's lead developer.

Hearing loss prevention drugs closer to reality thanks to new testing method from UF
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — A new way to test anti-hearing-loss drugs in people could help land those medicines on pharmacy shelves sooner. University of Florida researchers have figured out the longstanding problem of how to safely create temporary, reversible hearing loss in order to see how well the drugs work. The findings are described in the November/December 2012 issue of the journal Ear & Hearing. "There's a real need for drug solutions to hearing loss," said lead investigator Colleen Le Prell, Ph.D., an associate professor in the department of speech, language, and hearing sciences at the UF College of Public Health and Health Professions. "Right now the only options for protecting against noise-induced hearing loss are to turn down what you're listening to, walk away from it or wear ear plugs, and those options may not be practical for everyone, particularly for those in the military who need to be able to hear threats." About 26 million American adults have noise-induced hearing loss, according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders. Prevention is key because damage to hearing-related hair cells in the inner ear by loud noise is irreversible. Though hearing aids can help amplify sound and implanted devices can restore some sensation of sound for those with more profound hearing loss, they do not restore normal hearing. Thus, researchers are trying to find drugs that prevent hearing damage in the first place.
