1. Stress steroids as accelerators of Alzheimer's disease. : Effects of chronically elevated levels of allopregnanolone in transgenic AD models
Sammanfattning : 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. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The aim of the present doctoral thesis was to investigate the ability of patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) to utilize cognitive support in order to improve episodic remembering. A review of previous research indicated that most studies have failed to find beneficial effects of encoding support on memory in AD patients. LÄS MER
3. Mitochondria in Alzheimer's Disease : The Presequence Protease and Mitochondria-Associated ER Membranes
Sammanfattning : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is one of the most prevalent age-related neurodegenerative disorders and the accumulation of the amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) in the temporal lobe has been implicated in the pathology of AD. Synaptic transmission in neuronal cells is a highly energy dependent process, which relies on the presence and proper function of mitochondria. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia among elderly. The disease is characterized by amyloid-β (Aβ) plaques, neurofibrillary tangles, loss of synapses and neurons and chronic neuroinflammation. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia. A characteristic feature of AD is the presence of amyloid plaques in the cortex and hippocampus of the brain. The principal component of these plaques is the amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide, a cleavage product from proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP). LÄS MER
