  1. 1. Neuroinflammation and pain

    Författare :Linda Block; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuroinflammation; Pain; Persistant pain; Astrocytes; Morphine; Naloxone; Intrathecal administration;

    Sammanfattning : ABSTRACT Background: Persistent pain that remains long after the physiological trigger has been resolved is a disabling condition. A possible mechanism for the transition from acute physiological pain to persistent pain involves low-grade inflammation in the central nervous system, in which inflammatory-activated astrocytes play a significant role.

  2. 2. Neuroinflammation in Alzheimer's disease : Focus on NF-κB and C/EBP transcription factors

    Författare :Veronica Ramberg; Kerstin Iverfeldt; Josep Saura; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Alzheimer’s disease; neuroinflammation; NF-κB; C EBP; apoptosis; caspases; FRET; neurokemi och neurotoxikologi; Neurochemistry and Neurotoxicology;

    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

  3. 3. Neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s disease and obesity

    Författare :Linda Tracy; Kerstin Iverfeldt; Colin Combs; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Alzheimer s disease; obesity; neuroinflammation; neurokemi med molekylär neurobiologi; Neurochemistry with Molecular Neurobiology;

    Sammanfattning : Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and obesity are both major problems in the western world. Although they may appear to have little in common at first glance, they are both characterized by chronic inflammation. Exactly how inflammation affects these disorders is far from clear. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Physical exercise as a preventive strategy for disorders affecting the brain. The effect on neuroinflammation

    Författare :Martina Svensson; Neuroinflammation; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical activity; Exercise; Neuroinflammation; Microglia; Cytokines; Behavior; Dementia; Depression; Brain ischemia; Alzheimer’s disease; Vascular dementia; Parkinson’s disease;

    Sammanfattning : Physical activity is associated with lower risks of developing dementia, Parkinson’s disease (PD) and depression. Furthermore, being physically active prior to brain ischemia appears to help the recovery process. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Inheritance of autoimmune neuroinflammation

    Författare :Pernilla Stridh; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic neuro-inflammatory disease with anticipated complex etiology. Susceptibility to MS is conferred by numerous genes, with very low odds ratios that explain minute fractions of disease. This indicates that unknown factors are responsible for the remaining genetic contribution, termed the missing heritability . LÄS MER
