Abstract

Neuroinflammation is the response of the central nervous system to events that interfere with tissue homeostasis and represents a common denominator in virtually all neurological diseases. Activation of microglia, the principal immune effector cells of the brain, contributes to neuronal...read more

Anti-inflammatory Treatments

A drug or substance that reduces inflammation (redness, swelling, and pain) in the body. Anti-inflammatory agents block certain substances in the body that cause inflammation and swelling. Discover the latest research on anti-inflammatory treatments here

Quinolones

Quinolones are a class of broad-spectrum antibiotics used against a wide range of bacteria. Examples include lomefloxacin, ofloxacin, and norfloxacin. Discover the latest research on quinolones and their derivatives in this feed.

The Neuro - Researcher Network

The Neurodegenerative Disease Group comprises researchers at McGill University who are working to study the basic and clinical aspects underlying neurodegenerative diseases. Find the latest research from the Neuro researcher network here.

Neurotoxicity, Inflammation & Neuroprotection

The end result of the inflammatory process, neurotoxicity and/or neuroprotection, is a function of the fine balance between the two cellular systems, i.e., of the complex signaling relationships between anti-inflammatory neuroprotective factors (neurotrophins and other chemical mediators) and proinflammatory neurotoxic factors (tnf, free radicals, certain cytokines, etc). Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to neurotoxicity, inflammation and neuroprotection.

Myeloid Cells And Neuroinflammation

Myeloid cells in the CNS are innate immune cells that are essential for brain development and maintenance. Here is the latest research on myeloid cells, including microglia, in neuroinflammation.

Innate Immunity: Neurodegeneration

The innate immune system is a first line of defense against infection. Pathological states can occur if there is over activation of the innate immune system, particularly in the. The excessive activation of these cells can lead to inflammation and neurodegenerative diseases. Here is the latest research on innate immunity and neurodegeneration.

Microglia And CNS Diseases

Microglia are resident macrophages of the CNS. They play a role in scavenging the CNS for plaques, phagocytosis, and extracellular signaling. Here is the latest research on their role in CNS diseases.

Myeloid Cells & Neuroinflammation

Myeloid cells in the CNS are innate immune cells that are essential for brain development and maintenance. Here is the latest research on myeloid cells, including microglia, in neuroinflammation.

Neuroinflammation

Neuroinflammation is a defensive response, characterized by the activation of proinflammatory molecules including microglia and astrocytes. The response has been implicated in brain injuries, acute and chronic neurological and neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. Here is the latest research on neuroinflammation.

Microglia: Health and Disease

Microglia are the resident macrophages of the central nervous system. Microglia-derived inflammatory neurotoxins play a principal role in the pathogenesis of several neurodegenerative disorders. Here is the latest research on the role of microglia in health and disease.

Neurodegeneration: Microglia & TDP-43

TDP43 is is implicated in several neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal lobe dementia. It has also been shown to regulate microglial phagocytosis. Here is the latest research on the role of TDP43 and microglia in neurodegeneration.
