Reduced prealbumin (transthyretin) in CSF of severely demented patients with Alzheimer's disease

Acta Neurologica Scandinavica
H Riisøen


Prealbumin (transthyretin) quantified in CSF was negatively correlated with degree of dementia in 24 patients with dementia of Alzheimer type (DAT). There was neither a significant correlation between prealbumin in serum and degree of dementia nor between prealbumin in CSF and number of T lymphocytes in serum. There was no such relationship in 7 patients with multi-infarct dementia. Prealbumin was also quantified in 4 non-demented control groups, one consisting of 14 age- and sex-matched neurological patients, 17 with MS, 6 with ALS and 10 patients who had had a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Prealbumin was significantly lower in the last group. The study suggests that there may be a relationship between prealbumin levels in cerebrospinal fluid and degree of dementia. It is suggested that this may be caused by affection of the choroid plexus.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.
