Abstract

More than three hundred years ago, Antony van Leewenhoeck first described observing single-celled microorganisms, which he termed 'animalcules', examining his saliva under a microscope. Although the idea of the coexistence of microorganisms in our body is not new, we have only recently ...read more

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.
