    Abstract : Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most prevalent type of dementing disorder. The cortical pathology of AD has been recognized for almost a century. In later years, an associated pathological feature of AD has been identified which affects the white matter. READ MORE

  3. 3. Observations on cerebral amyloid angiopathy and microvascular pathology in Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia

    Author : Mattias Haglund; Tumörmikromiljö; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Patologi allmän ; pathological anatomy; General pathology; Vascular dementia; Alzheimer s disease; Cerebral infarction; Locus ceruleus; White matter; Microvasculature; Cerebrovascular disease; patologisk anatomi; Ischemia; Cerebral amyloid angiopathy;

    Abstract : Dementia is a state of permanent loss of cognitive function, most commonly affecting the elderly. With a rapidly growing aged population, the spectrum of disorders that lead to dementia is exerting an ever-increasing toll on patients, families and society alike. The most common dementing disorders are Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia. READ MORE

  4. 4. Prognostic impact of coronary microvascular funtion in patients with ischemic heart disease

    Abstract : Background: Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of death globally. Despite recent advances in interventional and medical therapies, survivors of myocardial infarction are at high risk of recurrent cardiovascular events. READ MORE

  5. 5. Microvascular plasticity and neurovascular coupling in the pharmacotherapy of Parkinson's disease

    Author : Elisabet Ohlin; Basala gangliernas patofysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Parkinson s disease; levodopa; dyskinesia; angiogenesis; cerebral blood flow; blood-brain barrier;

    Abstract : L-DOPA pharmacotherapy in Parkinson’s disease (PD) is associated with adverse effects occurring after a few years of treatment. Among these, dyskinesia (abnormal involuntary movements) is particularly common and potentially disabling. READ MORE
