Novel Mental Health Markers

Mental status abnormalities can be diagnosed proactively. Biomarkers can tell in advance - how to stay in balance. Technology addiction includes a variety of compulsive behaviors ranging from obsession with video games, social networking, and Internet browsing. The prevalence of people grappling with this modern challenge is on the rise. In today's digital age, it is not uncommon for teenagers and adults alike to feel a constant urge to stay connected to social media and the internet. Unfortunately, this constant connection often leads to a deep "fear of missing out" and a heightened sense of exclusion, especially among the younger generation. Behavioral addictions are widely recognized by mental health and addiction professionals and include a variety of addictive behaviors. Behavioral addiction is characterized by an increasing inability to regulate, control, or limit behavior. Technology addiction is particularly similar to obsessive-compulsive disorders. In our modern world, characterized by ever-increasing connectivity and technology use, some teenagers and young adults are transitioning from normal technology use to a realm where their dependence on technology negatively affects their academic performance, work life, family relationships, and social interactions.

Early detection of Neurodegenerative Disorders

Neurodegenerative disorders are a group of diseases characterized by the progressive degeneration of the structure and function of the nervous system, particularly the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain. These disorders can have a significant impact on a person's cognitive, motor, and overall neurological function. The aspiration of proactive and accurate diagnostics is to be beacons of health status by analyzing multiple biomarkers. These molecular signposts within the human body provide invaluable clues, often long before symptoms manifest. Our commitment at Cranfeld Clinic is to harness the power of biomarkers for early detection, revolutionizing the way we approach health.

Differential diagnostics

Most common current disorders are:

  • Alzheimer’s Disease: The most common cause of dementia, characterized by memory loss, cognitive decline, and changes in behavior.
  • Parkinson’s Disease: Affects movement and can lead to tremors, rigidity, and bradykinesia (slowness of movement).
  • Huntington’s Disease: A genetic disorder that causes progressive motor dysfunction, cognitive decline, and psychiatric symptoms.
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS): Also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, it affects motor neurons, leading to muscle weakness, paralysis, and eventually respiratory failure.
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS): An autoimmune disorder that damages the protective covering of nerve fibers, resulting in a range of neurological symptoms.
  • Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD): A group of disorders that primarily affect the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain, leading to personality changes, language problems, and behavioral issues.

Diagnosis often involves a combination of clinical evaluation, medical history, neurological examinations, and imaging studies such as MRI or CT scans. In some forms, genetic testing can help.

Causes

The causes of neurodegenerative disorders are complex and can involve genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. In some cases, the exact cause remains unknown.

Advanced treatments and services

The state-of-the-art facilities and expert staff at Cranfeld Clinic make it possible to deliver the most innovative, progressive care anywhere.

Ongoing research into the underlying mechanisms of these disorders offers hope for future treatments and potential cures. Advances in genetics, neuroimaging, and neuroscience are leading to a deeper understanding of these conditions.

Support and Caregiving

Neurodegenerative disorders can be emotionally and physically challenging for both patients and their caregivers. Support groups and caregiving resources can be invaluable in providing assistance and emotional support.

It’s important to note that some forms of dementia, such as Lewy body dementia, can have overlapping symptoms with Parkinson’s syndrome. In these cases, individuals may experience both cognitive and motor symptoms. Accurate diagnosis by a healthcare professional experienced in these conditions is crucial for appropriate management and care planning.

Alzheimer’s disease has a profound impact on individuals and their families. Caregivers play a crucial role in providing support, and resources such as support groups and Alzheimer’s associations can be invaluable.

Living with multiple sclerosis can be challenging, but with the right care, support, and management strategies, many individuals with MS are able to lead fulfilling lives and maintain their independence to varying degrees.

Advanced Cancer Biomarkers

In the age of personalized medicine, noninvasive methods to track a patient's tumor molecularly are crucial. Liquid biopsy, which involves analyzing circulating tumor cells (CTC), circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA), and other analytes in body fluids, offers a way to understand the disease's progression and genetic changes over time without invasive procedures. The number of clinically approved biomarkers in 2023 is 26 493. There remains an unmet need for the discovery of additional biomarkers to promote novel and tailored therapeutic modalities.
