  • Friedreich Ataxia This short informational movie is a project of the Rotary Club of Brighton North, Victoria, Australia. DVD liner notes: Friedreich ataxia is the commonest genetic cause of unsteadiness in the community. Individuals affected by this genetic condition begin to become unsteady in childhood or adolescence. The unsteadiness progresses inexorably and results in the individual becoming wheelchair-bound on average ten years after the onset of symptoms, and unfortunately lifespan is significantly reduced. The movie also highlights the Friedreich ataxia clinic at the Monash Medical Centre and details the clinical and laboratory-based research undertaken in the Bruce Lefroy Centre for Genetic Health Research at the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute situated in the Royal Childrens Hospital in Parkville, Victoria, Australia.

  • Ataxic Dysarthria Toastmaster speech 18 This Ataxic Dysarthria Toastmaster continues to get better!! :-). I have done 18 5-7 minute Toastmaster speeches and this month, taught a six-session 12 hour job search workshop (like I did pre-stroke)! So there! People now say I sound like I have a "swedish" or German Accent (because I over-enunciate), rather than sounding like a "drunk" with slurred words, like a year ago. That's a promotion - better a foreigner than a drunk! And I am understood pretty much everywhere - even on the phone and in noisy places! The attached speech was totally spoken without notes, totally off the cuff. I still talk too fast as I have to think WHAT I am going to say, then focus on HOW I am going to say it. Frankly, I get so nervous that I only think WHAT I am going to say and the HOW goes out the window. Need to get better at that, as I talk too fast when unfocused. The cerebellar stroke that caused the ataxic dysarthria (and ataxia in general) knocked out my ability to pace my words and also, the ability of my brain to coordinate the muscles in my mouth and breathing apparatus to speak clearly. It has been two years. It is practice, but god, I love to talk!

This speech was a small triumph as I barely used my notes. The video is hard to understand because the mike on the camera was screwy, and hey, I still talk to fast. When I don't read something, I talk faster...Do you have dysarthria? Please write me and tell me how you are doing. I am alone here and feeling my way toward progress alone, every day. I would like to share your growth and experiences with dysarthria...I hear that dysarthria without aphasia is rare, and ataxic is even rarer...write me, please -

  • Webcast : Ataxia Telangiectasia (AT) www.Alfred.TV READ ME FIRST Join me with Dr. Howard Lederman from Johns Hopkins Medicine as he provides us with an overview of the genetic disorder, Ataxia Telangiectasia, better known as "AT". Dr. Lederman's titles at Johns Hopkins Medicine include: • Professor of Pediatrics • Director, Immunodeficiency Clinic • Director, Ataxia-Telangiectasia Clinical Center • Director, Pediatric Immunology Laboratory AT can be referred to as a "gateway gene", with its mutation, known as "ATM", opening the doors to many other diseases, including: • Diabetes • Alzheimer's • Cerebral Palsy • Cystic Fibrosis • Breast Cancer • Immune Deficiency Dr. Lederman's leading-edge research on AT, with his team at Johns Hopkins Medicine, may also lead to uncovering cures for these other diseases. There are approximately 500 individuals afflicted with AT in the United States. It is a rare, genetic disorder. Also joining us in this video is Jared Digby, with his mother, Pamela, who is afflicted with AT. Pamela and her husband both were carries of the mutated AT gene, and Jared, unfortunately, got a 'double dose" at the genetic level, and suffers with the disorder. Jared's sister is ok. Jared is an avid MacPro user, and he with his family are participating in a Disney Marathon this Labor Day weekend, 2009, to continue fundraising efforts for continued AT research.

  • Ataxic Dysarthia Toastmasters speech 5- "Balance", 08/09 Using UTube in conjunction with Speech therapy at the UW to chart progress and my intelligibility...This is Speech Number 5 - Toastmasters August 12, 2009 I am disabled with Ataxic Dysarthia, using Toastmasters to learn to talk well again. This was a 7 minute speech. True goal was to read the whole thing and not speed up - to talk slowly and intelligibly for the entire speech. I had one meltdown and apologized when I tried to talk off the cuff, stopped reading and lost my place. Overall, not bad. The room obeyed my direction and understood what I was telling them to do. Compare this to my speech in January and I have improved by using my UW speech therapy techniques. Brain Surgery in March also helped resolved breathing issues from cerebellar AVM

  • Ataxia Long Term Disability.MOD - Dysarthria speaker gives Long Term Disability Toastmaster speech I have ataxic dysarthria from a stroke in 3/2/08 and had Brain surgery to remove the culprit AVM in 2/26/09. The AVM Cerebellar stroke left me with speech, balance and walking disorders that I have worked hard, through therapy, to over come. I am working with UW PT and the UW speech and hearing clinic. Recovery is a full time job, but if you view other videos of me on UTube, you will see it is paying off. I use Toastmasters to keep me motivated about speaking better. I used to talk for a living so speaking well again is VERY important. The purpose of this speech was to deliver a 8-10 sales presentation that used COMPLEX mulit-sylabic words - like Long-term dis-a-bil-i-ty in-sur-ance. 10 syllables!! Whew! Getting there. (We use these Utube videos to help me practice my speech at the UW and also to track my progress with my threapist/insurance providers etc. UTube rocks! :-)

  • Dr. J. Gottesfeld - HDACi for FA - euro-ATAXIA Conference - Dublin, 25th Sept. 2008 - part 1/3 Dr Joel Gottesfeld's lab in La Jolla, California (USA), is also working on heterochromatin modifiers as a potential treatment for FRDA, and Dr Gottesfeld started his talk by referencing a paper published by Richard Festenstein's group in 2003 (Nature) as the inspiration. His own work in California has supported the theory that heterochromatin gene silencing occurs in FRDA. The interaction between the active form of the frataxin gene and the inactive (silenced) form is mediated by enzymes called histone deacetylases (HDAC). To see if targeting these enzymes would result in an increase in frataxin, the researchers tested various commercially available HDAC inhibitors and found only one that was slightly active on the frataxin gene (compound BML-210). However they were then able to study derivatives of this compound and identified a compound (4B) which is active at increasing levels of frataxin mRNA and frataxin protein in cells. The next stage was to test the compound in a mouse model of FRDA, and they found that it was able to cross the blood brain barrier and enter the nervous system; it also inhibited HDAC in the brain. There are different classes of HDACs, based on whether they are zinc dependent or non-zinc dependent, and different HDAC inhibitors act on each of the different classes. It is important for research to identify which enzymes are the target, and this gives clues as to the desired chemical properties of the inhibitor. Chemical studies that his team has ...
