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

    Author : Kina Höglund; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : 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.

  2. 2. CSF biomarkers reflecting beta-amyloid and axonal pathology in Alzheimer's disease and related conditions

    Author : Niklas Mattsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Alzheimer s disease; biomarker; cerebrospinal fluid; beta-amyloid; axonal; Niemann-Pick type C; neuroborreliosis;

    Abstract : Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers may be used to identify and monitor pathological processes in the central nervous system. CSF biomarkers in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) include β-amyloid 42 (Aβ42), total-tau (T-tau) and phosphorylated-tau (P-tau), reflecting brain amyloid, axonal and tangle pathology, respectively.

  3. 3. Altered proteins in the aging brain

    Author : Adila Elobeid; Irina Alafuzoff; Lena Claesson-Welsh; Thomas Brännström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Cognitively unimpaired subjects; Hyperphosphorylated tau; Beta amyloid; Alpha-synclein; Transactive response DNA binding protein 43; Patologi; Pathology;

    Abstract : The classification of neurodegenerative disorders is based on the major component of the protein aggregates in the brain. The most common altered proteins associated with neurodegeneration are Hyperphosphorylated tau (HPt), beta amyloid (Aβ), alpha-synclein (αS) and transactive response DNA binding protein 43 (TDP43).

  4. 4. Stress steroids as accelerators of Alzheimer's disease. : Effects of chronically elevated levels of allopregnanolone in transgenic AD models

    Author : Sara Bengtsson; Mingde Wang; Torbjörn Bäckström; Maja Johansson; Caroline Graff; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Allopregnanolone; Alzheimer s disease; beta-amyloid; synaptophysin; chronic stress; Morris water maze; obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology; medicinsk farmakologi; Medical Pharmacology; Neurology; neurologi; Geriatrics; geriatrik; medical behavioral science; medicinsk beteendevetenskap;

    Abstract : Background Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and dementia are devastating con­ditions not only for the affected patients but also for their families.  The economical costs for the society are tremendous. READ MORE

  5. 5. Neuron-to-neuron propagation of neurodegenerative proteins; relation to degradative systems

    Author : Jakob Domert; Martin Hallbeck; Jan Marcusson; Lars Tjernberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell-to-cell transfer; beta-amyloid; Alzheimer s disease; degradation; proteasome; alpha-synuclein; Parkinson s disease; high throughput screening model;

    Abstract : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD) are defined by neurodegeneration and accumulations of misfolded proteins that spread through the brain in a well characterized manner. In AD these accumulations consist mainly of β-amyloid (Aβ) and tau, while in PD, α-synuclein (α-syn) make up the characteristic lewy pathology. READ MORE
