In conclusion, the connection between DNA damage and aging is emphasized by the secretion of senescence-associated proteins during cellular senescence, a phenotype which is activated by DNA damage and is common for both human and mice. Though much progress has been achieved, full understanding of these mechanisms has still a long way to go. XPO1 as a Novel Target for Therapies to Enhance Autophagy https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2018/05/xpo1-as-a-novel-target-for-therapies-to-enhance-autophagy/ Autophagy is the name given to a collection of cellular housekeeping processes that recycle damaged and un...

DEMENTIA signs and symptoms include memory loss, confusion in conversations and losing interest in hobbies. There are several different types of the condition including dementia with lewy bodies and vascular dementia. Alzheimer ’s disease is the most common form of the disease. This is how long you could live if you have the condition, according to the Alzheimer’s Society.

Conclusions: In this review we will provide animal and human research data on the current clinical neurological uses for CBD individually and in combination with Δ9-THC. We will emphasize the neuroprotective, antiinflammatory, and immunomodulatory benefits of phytocannabinoids and their applications in various clinical syndromes. PMID: 29770251 [PubMed]

Authors: Takatori S, Tomita T Abstract The AP180 N-terminal homology (ANTH) and Epsin N-terminal homology (ENTH) domains are crucially involved in membrane budding processes. All the ANTH/ENTH-containing proteins share the phosphoinositide-binding activity and can interact with clathrin or its related proteins via multiple binding motifs. Their function also include promotion of clathrin assembly, induction of membrane curvature, and recruitment of various effector proteins, such as those involved in membrane fission. Furthermore, they play a role in the sorting of specific cargo proteins, thereby enabling the carg...

CONCLUSION: Chinese familial caregivers of patients with dementia experience a moderate level of burden and a high level of strain. The main strain factors that affected the burden were changes in personal plans, time demands, and emotional adjustment. PMID: 29775139 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: MicroRNA-377 could regulate the expression level of CDH13 by promoting cell proliferation and inhibiting cell apoptosis, thus participating in the occurrence of the Alzheimer's disease. PMID: 29771432 [PubMed - in process]

Hämäläinen, Minna Oksanen, Jari Koistinaho An amyloid precursor protein (APP) A673T mutation was found to be protective against Alzheimer's disease (AD) and cognitive decline in the Icelandic population and to associate with decreased levels of plasma β-amyloid in a Finnish population-based cohort. Human fibroblasts from a Finnish male individual carrying the protective mutation we...

Publication date: Available online 19 May 2018 Source:Neurobiology of Stress Author(s): Kanchan Bisht, Kaushik Sharma, Marie-Ève Tremblay Microglia are the predominant immune cells of the central nervous system (CNS) that exert key physiological roles required for maintaining CNS homeostasis, notably in response to chronic stress, as well as mediating synaptic plasticity, learning and memory. The repeated exposure to stress confers a higher risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases including sporadic Alzheimer's disease (AD). While microglia have been causally linked to amyloid beta (Aβ) accumulation, tau ...

Conclusions To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study investigating changes in corpus callosum morphometry in normal ageing and AD by exploring both summarizing features (CCA, CIR and CCI) and the complete CC thickness profile in two independent cohorts using a completely automated algorithm. We showed that callosal circularity allows to discriminate between an important subgroup of the early AD spectrum (SCD) and age and sex matched healthy controls.
