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...

Authors: Müller-Wieland D, Schütt K, Brandts J, Marx N Abstract A paradigm change in the treatment of type 2 diabetes has recently emerged due to the introduction of new oral antidiabetic agents. Cardiovascular endpoint studies confirmed the safety of dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) inhibitors and a cardiovascular protective effect for glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists and sodium-glucose linked transporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors. Furthermore, SGLT‑2 inhibitors reduce the risk for heart failure and have a renoprotective effect. These studies led to changes in clinical recommendations a...
