  1. 1. Clusterin in brain and cerebrospinal fluidin Alzheimer s disease

    Författare :Anna-Maria Nilselid; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Alzheimer s disease; clusterin; apolipoprotein J; SP-40; brain tissue; cerebrospinal fluid; glycosylation; biomarker; enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay;

    Sammanfattning : The apolipoprotein clusterin is suggested to be involved in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer¡¦s disease (AD). At the start of these studies, results had indicated that clusterin was elevated in AD brain, compared with controls. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Amyloid-β Protofibrils in Alzheimer´s Disease : Focus on Antibodies, Inflammation and Astrocytes

    Författare :Sofia Söllvander; Lars Lannfelt; Anna Erlandsson; Frida Ekholm-Pettersson; Linda Söderberg; Pär Gellerfors; Martin Hallbeck; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Alzheimer s Disease; Amyloid-beta; Protofibrils; ELISA; ELISpot; Astrocyte; Monoclonal Antibody; Immunofluorescence; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Sammanfattning : Soluble amyloid-beta (Aβ) aggregates, including Aβ protofibrils, play a central role in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and constitute a potential diagnostic biomarker and a therapeutic target. Aβ protofibrils promote synapse dysfunction and neurodegeneration, but the mechanisms behind these effects remain unclear. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Statin treatment and beta-Amyloid Production in Patients with Alzheimer s Disease

    Författare :Kina Höglund; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Alzheimer s disease; amyloid precursor protein; beta-amyloid; cholesterol; statins; CSF;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder pathologically characterized by neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques. According to the amyloid cascade hypothesis, the increased production of beta-amyloid (Abeta), derived form the amyloid precursor protein (APP), and its aggregation into plaques are key pathological events, driving neurodegeneration in AD.

  4. 4. Magnetic resonance studies in Alzheimer´s disease

    Författare :Eric Westman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer s disease (AD) is one of the most common forms of neurodegenerative disorders connected with gradual loss of cognitive functions such as episodic memory. The disease is related to pathological amyloid depositions and hyper phosphorilation of structural proteins in the brain which lead to progressive loss of function, metabolic alterations and structural changes in the brain.

  5. 5. Evaluation of amyloid precursor protein and ß-amyloid as biomarkers for Alzheimer s disease

    Författare :Annika Olsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :Alzheimer s disease; amyloid precursor protein; ß-amyloid; biomarker; cerebrospinal fluid; enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay; plasma;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterised by accumulations of neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques. The major components of the amyloid deposits are the ß-amyloid (Aß) peptides derived from the amyloid precursor protein (APP). LÄS MER
