Summary - Research Activities - Director, Neurosurgery Surgical Research Laboratories
 

In the Neurosurgery Surgical Research Laboratories, there are multiple ongoing basic and preclinical research projects involving studies of functional neurosurgery, neuroregeneration & degeneration, cerebral vasospasm, stroke, neuroimaging, neurotransplantation and gene therapy. These studies range from basic bench-top assays of components involved in metabolic and/or pathophysiological pathways, to surgical models of disease pathways and treatments, to innovative use of new technologies, to imaging studies (PET, fCT, fMRI, 3d Doppler Ultrasound, Optical Scanning) of physiological changes involved in these disease processes.

  Research Activities - Current / Recent Projects:
 

Udall Parkinson's Disease Research Center of Excellence

Dr Ole Isacson - PI, Director of Center and Neuroregeneration Laboratory - Mclean Hospital and MGH Neurology - Neuroregeneration Laboratory

Dr Anna-Liisa Brownell - PI, Director MGH PET Imaging Laboratory - MGH Radiology - [ALB Intranet]

Dr Bruce Jenkins, Director, Neurochemical Imaging - MGH Radiology - MR Center at MGH - fMRI, MR Spectroscopy and high resolution anatomical studies.

A functional collaborative scientific group centered at McLean Hospital and Harvard NERPRC funded by the NIH/NINDS that investigates neuroprotective, neuromodulatory and neural transplantation approaches for PD. This work is synergistically linked in four projects:

Project 1. A prevention of dopaminergic degeneration induced by MPTP. Two paradigms are tested; a) neuroprotection to reduce the loss of dopamine terminals and b) a regeneration paradigm with post MPTP treatment to regenerate remaining DA terminals.

Project 2. We will test neuronal replacement by fetal dopamine cells into the striatum, the subthalamic nucleus and the substantia nigra in an animal model of PD. We hypothesize that a full reinnervation with novel dopaminergic fibers in these regions will fully restore the dysfunctional circuitry responsible for PD.

Project 3. By generating dopaminergic neurons from blastula stage stem cells, we can obtain renewable cells to be transplanted for functional tests into animal models of parkinsonism. These stem cell derived dopaminergic neurons will be compared in function to those derived from phenotypically normal embryonic fetal cells.

Imaging Studies: These projects also include a fourth core project of Imaging Studies involving functional MRI and PET scans and analysis.

  Research Activities - Project Support:
  The Neurosurgery Surgical Research Laboratory also provides surgical support facilities for Investigators conducting studies of interest to the Neurosurgical Service. Recent examples of studies conducted in the Neurosurgery Surgical Research Laboratory are:
  • Dr Lee Kaplan - MGH Center for the Study of Inflammatory Bowel Disease & Weight Center
  • Pediatric Surgery - Transgenic Models - sensitivity to pulmonary infections
  • Radiology - Dr T. Davis - Optical registration in the Neuro ORs
  • Cardiac Surgery - Drs J. Schultz and M. Yu - Burns and Cardiac Studies
  • Plastic Surgery - Models in Limb Transplant
  • Graybiel Laboratory, Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT - DR Ann Graybiel - PI
  • Center for Innovative Minimally Invasive Therapy (CIMIT) - "Clinical Focus Areas - Stroke - Coordinator Walter Koroshetz, MD"
    • Albert Lee, M.D. - Brain cooling. Hypothermia is the most consistent, robust and broadly applicable experimental neuroprotective strategy for ischemic brain injury. A decrease in stroke injury in animal models occurs with only a 2-3 degree reduction in brain temperature. Initial clinical reports from Germany indicate that cerebral hypothermia can be attained by total body cooling, and is feasible and safe in stroke patients. We wish to test the ability of hypothermia to block the progression of ischemic injury as measured by diffusion-weighted MRI (DWI).
    • Gilberto Gonzalez, MD, Ph.D. - Selective laser thrombolysis.  The use of thrombolytic drugs such as urokinase, tissue plasminogen activator introduces an inherent risk of brain hemorrhage. There is a known (0.5%) risk in cardiac thrombolysis, it reached 6% in the American t-PA trial. In addition, bleeding risk excludes a number of devastated stroke patients from thrombolytic therapy, especially post-surgical cases. Laser assisted thrombolysis offers to improve the access of thrombolytic drug to the clot by causing microcavitation in the clot. This should allow recanalization of blocked vessels with lower doses of thrombolytic drug and lower risk of hemorrhage. Selective laser assisted thrombolysis has been developed for the treatment of acute myocardial infarction by applying pulses of low enough energy and pulse rate to selectively deposit energy in the clot. Laser energy pulses of short duration, nanoseconds-microseconds, deposit energy into the thrombus and begin the ablation process before sufficient heat diffuses to adjacent tissues, thereby limiting thermal damage.

The use of lasers to "weld" or create a laryngeal closure that would prevent possible aspiration of gastric contents that commonly leads to pneumonia in patients following cerebral strokes.
  • Robert H. Brown, MD, Ph.D. and Merit E. Cudkowicz, MD - Day Neuromuscular Research Laboratory - Preclinical Studies of Intrathecal Recombination Human Superoxide Dismutase in Sheep. Surgical model for placement of intraventricular and spinal catheters for chronic infusion of superoxide dismutase (SOD). Studies in preparation for human clinical trials involving ALS patients.

    Personal - Philosophy ????
     

    If you see a Snake, kill the Snake. Don't form Snake review committees. Don't form Snake discussion groups. Kill the Snake.

    Don't kill dead Snakes. Leave them alone, they are dead. Learn from them but move on. Don't get stuck killing dead Snakes.

    Observe & Beware. Many good opportunities start as Snakes. Coordinate the discussion to identify which items are Snakes and which are real opportunities.
