Authors: Wang X, Zhao J Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a multifactorial neurodegenerative disorder causing progressive memory loss and cognitive impairment. The aberrant accumulation of amyloid‑β (Aβ) and neuroinflammation are two major events in AD. Aβ‑induced neurotoxicity and oxidative stress are also involved in the pathogenesis of AD. The purpose of the current study was to investigate the effect of compound porcine cerebroside and ganglioside injection (CPCGI) on the progression of AD, and to explore the molecular mechanism. In vivo and in vitro models of AD were established...

Authors: Cartz-Piver L, Polin C, Diebolt C, Chouly M, Garçonnot LA, Clément JP, Calvet B, Couratier P Abstract Therapeutic patient education (TPE) is the process by which health professionals impart information to help patients self-manage their chronic disease: it is an essential part of treatment of long-term diseases and conditions. Memory loss and other cognitive disorders are usually considered as obstacles to TPE for patients with Alzheimer's disease or related disorders (ADRD). Over 100 patients with different forms of ADRD and caregivers have benefited from TPE programs since 2011 at the Limog...

Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by progressive decrease in cognitive abilities, language impairment and irreversible memory loss. Amyloid-β (Aβ) and tau deposits are essential as the major factors involved in the pathogenesis of AD. Unfortunately, anti-Alzheimer's disease agents currently available are not potent enough to reverse the cause of the disease. Interestingly, near infrared fluorescence (NIRF) dyes have been marked as promising tools in analytical researches and are often adopted as molecular probes to monitor and diagnose AD, in vitro or in vivo. Compared with oth...

Authors: Foyet HS, Keugong Wado E, Ngatanko Abaissou HH, Assongalem EA, Eyong OK Abstract Ziziphus mucronata Willd, also known as "buffalo thorn," belongs to the family Rhamnaceae. Its bark and leaves are used in folk medicine for the treatment of various deficiencies related to nociception, inflammation, mood, and depression. Still, there is a lack of scientific data regarding its potential effect on learning and memory process. The present study was designed to investigate the neuroprotective potential of Ziziphus mucronata (ZM) on learning and memory impairment in a scopolamine-induced model of dementi...

Neurodegenerative disorders are a growing cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Onset is typically insidious and clinical symptoms of behavioral change, memory loss, or cognitive dysfunction may not be evident early in the disease process. Efforts have been made to discover biomarkers that allow for earlier diagnosis of neurodegenerative disorders, to initiate treatment that may slow the course of clinical deterioration. Neuronal dysfunction occurs earlier than clinical symptoms manifest. Thus, assessment of neuronal function using functional brain imaging has been examined as a potential biomarker. While most early ...

Are you worried about Alzheimer’s disease? Does one of your parents or siblings have the disease? If so, your risks are between two and four times that of the general public. What about people without a family history of the disease? Unfortunately, everyone is at risk for it. By age 85, half of you reading this article today will have developed Alzheimer’s disease, with or without a family history. Sounds pretty scary, doesn’t it? I’m writing today to give you some good news. A new study from the lab of Harvard researcher Yakeel Quiroz, PhD, has suggested a new target for drugs that might have the p...
