Abstract

An antioxidant polysaccharide, porphyran, from red algae Pyropia haitanensis, is introduced as a protective agent against neurotoxicity-induced amyloid β peptide (Aβ) of Alzheimer's disease (AD) mice. Then the activity of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and choline acetyltransferase (CHAT) ...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.

Alzheimer's Disease: Early Markers

Alzheimer's disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease. This feed focuses on early markers, as well as environmental, pharmacological, and drug-response biomarkers associated with this disease.

Alzheimer's Disease: Abeta

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a chronic neurodegenerative disease associated with accumulation of amyloid plaques, which are comprised of amyloid beta. Here is the latest research in this field.
