Red wine, dark chocolate and raspberries could slow effects of Alzheimer's: Chemical in foods 'protects the brain from damage'

Reservatrol, naturally-occurring in some foods, strengthens the blood-brain barrier - protecting the brain from harmful molecules, a study by Georgetown University Medical Centre found.

Intracerebroventricular streptozotocin induces behavioral impairments and increases short‑term C3 gene expression in the hippocampus of Wistar rats. Acta Neurobiol Exp (Wars). 2020;80(2):160-171 Authors: Pfutzenreuter G, Nieradka K, Pincerati MR, da Silva IS Abstract A non‑transgenic rat model based on intracerebroventricular injection of streptozotocin (STZ) has been used as an animal model to investigate mechanisms associated to the late onset of sporadic Alzheimer's disease, such as anatomical and behavioral impairments. However, molecular aspects related to gene expression, mainly in the hippo...

AbstractBackgroundA practical strategy to discover sepsis specific proteins may be to compare the plasma peptides and proteins from patients in the intensive care unit with and without sepsis. The aim was to discover proteins and/or peptides that show greater observation frequency and/or precursor intensity in sepsis. The endogenous tryptic peptides of ICU-Sepsis were compared to ICU Control, ovarian cancer, breast cancer, female normal, sepsis, heart attack, Alzheimer ’s and multiple sclerosis along with their institution-matched controls, female normals and normal samples collected directly onto ice.MethodsEndogeno...

Authors: Volicer L Abstract Alzheimer's disease is a major health problem all over the world. The role of beta-amyloid (Aβ) is at the center of investigations trying to discover the disease pathogenesis and to develop drugs for treatment or prevention on Alzheimer's disease. This review summarizes both physiological and pathological functions of Aβ and factors that may participate in the disease development. Known genetic factors are trisomy of chromosome 21, mutations of presenilin 1 and 2, and apolipoprotein E4. Lifetime stresses that increase the risk of development of Alzheimer's disease are described...

Researchers have discovered a number of mitochondrial peptides that influence cell and tissue health. Here, it is demonstrated that upregulation of humanin is sufficient to extend life in nematode worms. Since humanin levels decrease with age, and since long-lived families tend to have higher levels of humanin, it is hoped that upregulation can be the basis for therapies to modestly slow the progression of aging. There has been a fair amount of research along these lines in recent years, such as showing that delivery of humanin improves cognition in aged mice. It is an interesting part of the field. Humanin is a m...
