Alzheimer's diseae

Panayiota Papadopoulos, Xin-Kang Tong, Hans Imboden, Edith Hamel
Alterations of the renin-angiotensin system have been implicated in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease. We tested the efficacy of losartan (10 mg/kg/day for three months), a selective angiotensin II type 1 receptor antagonist, in alleviating cerebrovascular and cognitive deficits in double-transgenic mice (six months at endpoint) that overexpress a mutated form of the human amyloid precursor protein (APPSwe,Ind) and a constitutively active form of the transforming growth factor-β1, thereafter named A/T mice...

A reduction of neurosteroids in the brain may initiate sporadic Alzheimer's disease (AD) which comprises >99% of all AD cases. AD research is currently focused on aberrant amyloid precursor protein (APP) processing and the hyper-phosphorylation of tau protein. This is based on early-onset genetic and pathological observations clearly showing that these markers are involved in the progression of the disease. However, there is still ongoing debate as to the key pathological events in the sporadic form of AD where the Abeta and tau genes are not usually mutated...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the role of Gallyas silver staining in the diagnosis of neurodegenerative diseases. METHOD: Modified Gallyas-Braak staining method was used to investigate samples of the brain and spinal cord of 22 cases with neurodegenerative disease including Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's diseas (PD), Pick's disease, diffuse Lewy body disease (DLBD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), diagnosed by clinical and routine pathologic method. 10 cases without clinical symptoms and pathologic abnormalities of the nervous system served as control...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
