The article by Ponsen and colleagues 1 and the accompanying editorial by Stern 2 point out the importance of preclinical detection of risk for subsequent development of Parkinson's disease. The interesting work by Ponsen and colleagues 1 would suggest that tests of olfactory function, alone or in combination with other tests, may play a role in developing prognosticating tests. We developed such a test that, when applied prospectively to 212 subjects with symptoms suggestive but not diagnostic

The test battery was 92% specific and 68% sensitive with an area of the receiver operator characteristics curve of 0.88. Olfactory testing alone had a sensitivity of 82% and a specificity of 81%. Developing any diagnostic or prognostic test is complicated. In addition to specificity and sensitivity, prior probabilities (prevalence of those at risk) are a major factor. For example, the prevalence of persons at risk for Parkinson's disease in a population of concern (such as first-degree relatives or those with specific environmental exposures) would have to be nearly 18% for olfactory testing to have a 50% positive and negative predictive value. Even at this, there would be as many false-positives and false-negatives as true-positives and true-negatives. Often little attention is given to the anticipated prevalence rates of those at risk when discussing potential diagnostic or predictive tests. Combining multiple tests into a diagnostic or prognostic battery to improve specificity and sensitivity is problematic. 3

Agonist signalling properties of radiotracers used for imaging of dopamine D2/3 receptors

Jan-Peter van Wieringen, Martin C Michel, Henk M Janssen, Anton G Janssen, Philip H Elsinga, Jan Booij
2014 EJNMMI Research  
Dopamine D 2/3 receptor (D 2/3 R) agonist radiopharmaceuticals are considered superior to antagonists to detect dopamine release, e.g. induced by amphetamines. Agonists bind preferentially to the high-affinity state of the dopamine D 2 R, which has been proposed as the reason why agonists are more sensitive to detect dopamine release than antagonist radiopharmaceuticals, but this theory has been challenged. Interestingly, not all agonists similarly activate the classic cyclic adenosine mono

Because these pathways can be affected separately by pathologies or drugs (including dopamine releasers), it is important to know how agonist radiotracers act on these pathways. Therefore, we characterized the intracellular signalling of the well-known D 2/3 R agonist radiopharmaceuticals NPA and PHNO and of several novel D 2/3 R agonists. Methods: cAMP accumulation and β-arrestin-2 recruitment were measured on cells expressing human D 2 R. Results: All tested agonists showed (almost) full agonism in both pathways. Conclusions: The tested D 2/3 R agonist radiopharmaceuticals did not exhibit biased agonism in vitro. Consequently, it is likely that drugs (including psychostimulants like amphetamines) and/or pathologies that influence the cAMP and/or the β-arrestin-2 pathway may influence the binding of these radiopharmaceuticals.

Disrupted Dopaminergic Neurotransmission in 22q11 Deletion Syndrome

Erik Boot, Jan Booij, Janneke Zinkstok, Nico Abeling, Lieuwe de Haan, Frank Baas, Don Linszen, Thérèse van Amelsvoort
2007 Neuropsychopharmacology  
22q11 Deletion syndrome (22q11DS) is associated with chromosome 22q11 microdeletions and high rates of psychiatric disorders. Susceptibility for these disorders could be explained by haploinsufficiency of the catechol-O-methyltransferase gene, which encodes an enzyme involved in dopamine (DA) breakdown. It is unknown how dopaminergic neurotransmission is affected in people with 22q11DS. To date, there have been no controlled studies investigating dopaminergic neurotransmission in people with
more » ... 11DS. We report the results of a challenge study in high-functioning adults with 22q11DS and age-and gender-matched controls using neuro-endocrine and peripheral dopaminergic markers. At baseline, 22q11DS subjects compared to controls had higher urine DA levels and lower plasma levels of the predominant DA metabolite homovanillic acid (HVA). Following DA depletion, 22q11DS subjects showed lower urine and plasma HVA levels and a lower prolactin response than controls. The ratio of DA/HVA, a rough index of DA turnover, was significantly higher in the 22q11DS subjects at baseline and after DA depletion. Our results suggest that adults with 22q11DS have disrupted dopaminergic neurotransmission, which might explain their susceptibility for psychiatric disorders.

Huntington's Disease: A Review of the Known PET Imaging Biomarkers and Targeting Radiotracers

Klaudia Cybulska, Lars Perk, Jan Booij, Peter Laverman, Mark Rijpkema
2020 Molecules  
Huntington's disease (HD) is a fatal neurodegenerative disease caused by a CAG expansion mutation in the huntingtin gene. As a result, intranuclear inclusions of mutant huntingtin protein are formed, which damage striatal medium spiny neurons (MSNs). A review of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) studies relating to HD was performed, including clinical and preclinical data. PET is a powerful tool for visualisation of the HD pathology by non-invasive imaging of specific radiopharmaceuticals,

Nowadays, radiochemists are equipped with an impressive arsenal of radioligands to accurately recognise particular receptors of interest. These include key biomarkers of HD: adenosine, cannabinoid, dopaminergic and glutamateric receptors, microglial activation, phosphodiesterase 10 A and synaptic vesicle proteins. This review aims to provide a radiochemical picture of the recent developments in the field of HD PET, with significant attention devoted to radiosynthetic routes towards the tracers relevant to this disease.

Biological Mechanisms Whereby Social Exclusion May Contribute to the Etiology of Psychosis: A Narrative Review

Jean-Paul Selten, Jan Booij, Bauke Buwalda, Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg
2017 Schizophrenia Bulletin  
The purpose of this review is to examine whether a contribution of social exclusion to the pathogenesis of psychosis is compatible with the dopamine hypothesis and/or the neurodevelopmental hypothesis. Humans experience social exclusion as defeating. An animal model for defeat is the resident-intruder paradigm. The defeated animal shows evidence of an increased sensitivity to amphetamine, increased dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens and prefrontal cortex, and increased firing of

As for humans, one study showed that amphetamine-induced striatal dopamine release was significantly greater among nonpsychotic young adults with severe hearing impairment than among normal hearing controls. Two other studies reported an association between childhood trauma and increased dopamine function in striatal subregions. Several studies have suggested that the perigenual anterior cingulate cortex (pgACC) may play a role in the processing of social stress. Importantly, the pgACC regulates the activity of the ventral striatum through bidirectional interconnections. We are not aware of studies in humans that examined whether (proxies for) social exclusion contributes to the structural brain changes present at psychosis onset. Animal studies, however, reported that long-term isolation may lead to reductions in volume of the total brain, hippocampus, or medial prefrontal cortex. Other animal studies reported that social defeat can reduce neurogenesis. In conclusion, the answer to the question as to whether there are plausible mechanisms whereby social exclusion can contribute to the pathogenesis of psychosis is cautiously affirmative.
