A 10-year-old girl has died in the hospital, her family said in a statement on Monday, after she contracted a rare brain-eating amoeba while swimming in a Texas river. Lily Mae Avant swam in a river and lake over the Labor Day holiday weekend earlier in September, then suffered a headache and a fever the following weekend. The Texas Department of State Health Services told local media that she had primary amoebic meningoencephalitis, a brain infection caused by the so-called brain-eating amoeba Naegleria fowleri.

Review of “Transneuronal Propagation of Pathologic α-Synuclein from the Gut to the Brain Models Parkinson’s Disease” from Developmental Cell by Stuart P. Atkinson

The Braak hypothesis of Parkinson’s disease (PD) development states that α-synuclein can pass from the gut to the brain via the vagus nerve to initiate the formation of the aberrant aggregates that lead to the death of the dopamine neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta [1, 2]. While the injection of preformed fibrils of α-synuclein into the striatum of mice results in dopaminergic neuron death consistent with retrograde transmission and long-range transport of pathogenic α-synuclein [2, 3], current protocols using preformed fibrils do not support the spread of pathologic α-synuclein from the gut to the brain.
