Circulating Inflammatory Markers Are Associated With Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Visible Perivascular Spaces But Not Directly With White Matter Hyperintensities Benjamin S.

Bastin, PhD; John Starr, MD; Ian J. Deary, PhD; Joanna M. Wardlaw, MD Background and Purpose—White matter hyperintensities (WMH) and perivascular spaces (PVS) are features of small vessel disease, found jointly on MRI of older people. Inflammation is a prominent pathological feature of small vessel disease. We examined the association between inflammation, PVS, and WMH in the Lothian Birth Cohort 1936 (N=634). Methods—We measured plasma fibrinogen, C-reactive protein, and interleukin-6 and rated PVS in 3 brain regions. We measured WMH volumetrically and visually using the Fazekas scale. We derived latent variables for PVS, WMH, and Inflammation from measured PVS, WMH, and inflammation markers and modelled associations using structural equation modelling. Results—After accounting for age, sex, stroke, and vascular risk factors, PVS were significantly associated with WMH (β=0.47; P0.90, and IFI >0.90. ‘PVS’ indicates latent variable derived from measures of PVS; and ‘WMH,’ latent variable derived from measures of WMH. Models included covariates that were significantly associated with measures of WMH or PVS. BG indicates basal ganglia perivascular spaces (PVS); CS, centrum semiovale PVS; Faz, Fazekas; high BP, hypertension; HIP, hippocampal PVS; Peri, perivascular; and WMH v, %WMH in intracranial volume. Rectangular boxes indicate measured observations; ellipses, latent variables; single-headed arrows, hypothesized causal pathways; double-headed arrows, correlations; dashed arrows, nonsignificant associations; and solid arrows, significant associations at P

White matter perivascular spaces on magnetic resonance imaging: marker of cerebrovascular amyloid burden?
We investigated the relationship between magnetic resonance imaging-visible centrum semiovale perivascular spaces (CSO-PVS), a biomarker of impaired interstitial fluid drainage, and positron emission tomography-based amyloid-β burden across a wide ra

Association between Perivascular Spaces and Progression of White Matter Hyperintensities in Lacunar Stroke Patients.
Perivascular spaces are associated with MRI markers of cerebral small vessel disease, including white matter hyperintensities. Although perivascular spaces are considered to be an early MRI marker of cerebral small vessel disease, it is unknown wheth

Renal dysfunction is associated with deep cerebral microbleeds but not white matter hyperintensities in patients with acute intracerebral hemorrhage.
Kidney disease is a risk factor for cerebral microangiopathy and spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). We aimed to determine the association of renal dysfunction (RD) with MRI correlates of different patterns of cerebral microangiopathies inclu

Circulating matrix metalloproteinase-9 level is associated with cerebral white matter hyperintensities in non-stroke individuals.
The pathogenesis of cerebral white matter hyperintensities (WMH) has been poorly understood. Our aim was to investigate the association of circulating proteins, the biomarkers of inflammation, blood-brain barrier (BBB) dysfunction, and thrombosis wit

White matter hyperintensities are more highly associated with preclinical Alzheimer's disease than imaging and cognitive markers of neurodegeneration.
Cognitive tests and nonamyloid imaging biomarkers do not consistently identify preclinical AD. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether white matter hyperintensity (WMH) volume, a cerebrovascular disease marker, is more associated with pre

White matter perivascular spaces are related to cortical superficial siderosis in cerebral amyloid angiopathy.
We set out to investigate whether MRI-visible centrum semiovale perivascular spaces (CSO-PVS), a potential biomarker of impaired interstitial fluid drainage in sporadic cerebral amyloid angiopathy, is associated with cortical superficial siderosis (c

White matter hyperintensities are positively associated with cortical thickness in Alzheimer's disease.
White matter hyperintensities are associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD). White matter hyperintensities are believed to disconnect brain areas. We examined the topographical association between white matter hyperintensities and

Orthostatic and supine blood pressures are associated with white matter hyperintensities in Parkinson disease.
Several reports on the elderly population have suggested that orthostatic hypotension is associated with white matter hyperintensities (WMH); however, little information is available on patients with Parkinson's disease (PD).

White matter hyperintensities are associated with visual search behavior independent of generalized slowing in aging.
A fundamental controversy is whether cognitive decline with advancing age can be entirely explained by decreased processing speed, or whether specific neural changes can elicit cognitive decline, independent of slowing. These hypotheses are anchored
