  1. 1. Clusterin in brain and cerebrospinal fluidin Alzheimer s disease

    Author : Anna-Maria Nilselid; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s disease; clusterin; apolipoprotein J; SP-40; brain tissue; cerebrospinal fluid; glycosylation; biomarker; enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay;

    Abstract : The apolipoprotein clusterin is suggested to be involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer¡¦s disease (AD). At the start of these studies, results had indicated that clusterin was elevated in AD brain, compared with controls. READ MORE

  2. 2. Amyloid-β Protofibrils in Alzheimer´s Disease Focus on Antibodies, Inflammation and Astrocytes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sofia Söllvander; Lars Lannfelt; Anna Erlandsson; Frida Ekholm-Pettersson; Linda Söderberg; Pär Gellerfors; Martin Hallbeck; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s Disease; Amyloid-beta; Protofibrils; ELISA; ELISpot; Astrocyte; Monoclonal Antibody; Immunofluorescence; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Soluble amyloid-beta (Aβ) aggregates, including Aβ protofibrils, play a central role in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and constitute a potential diagnostic biomarker and a therapeutic target. Aβ protofibrils promote synapse dysfunction and neurodegeneration, but the mechanisms behind these effects remain unclear. READ MORE

  3. 3. Statin treatment and beta-Amyloid Production in Patients with Alzheimer s Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kina Höglund; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s disease; amyloid precursor protein; beta-amyloid; cholesterol; statins; CSF;

    Abstract : Alzheimer s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder pathologically characterized by neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques. According to the amyloid cascade hypothesis, the increased production of beta-amyloid (Abeta), derived form the amyloid precursor protein (APP), and its aggregation into plaques are key pathological events, driving neurodegeneration in AD.

  4. 4. Magnetic resonance studies in Alzheimer´s disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society

    Author : Eric Westman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Alzheimer s disease (AD) is one of the most common forms of neurodegenerative disorders connected with gradual loss of cognitive functions such as episodic memory. The disease is related to pathological amyloid depositions and hyper phosphorilation of structural proteins in the brain which lead to progressive loss of function, metabolic alterations and structural changes in the brain.

  5. 5. Evaluation of amyloid precursor protein and ß-amyloid as biomarkers for Alzheimer s disease

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society

    Author : Annika Olsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Alzheimer s disease; amyloid precursor protein; ß-amyloid; biomarker; cerebrospinal fluid; enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; plasma;

    Abstract : Alzheimer s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterised by accumulations of neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques. The major components of the amyloid deposits are the ß-amyloid (Aß) peptides derived from the amyloid precursor protein (APP). READ MORE
