Choi Inflammasomes are intracellular multiprotein complexes in the cytoplasm that regulate inflammation activation in the innate immune system in response to pathogens and to host self-derived molecules. Recent advances greatly improved our understanding of the activation of nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-like receptor (NLR) family pyrin domain containing 3 (NLRP3) inflammasomes at the molecular level. The NLRP3 belongs to the subfamily of NLRP which activates caspase 1, thus causing the production of proinflammatory cytokines (interleukin 1β and interleukin 18) and pyroptosis. This inflammasome i...

Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2D) are highly prevalent aging-related diseases associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Patients with T2D have an increased risk to develop AD, while glucose metabolism abnormalities are frequent among AD patients. Epidemiological studies and the results of basic science point to possible shared pathophysiology between T2D and AD. Co-occurrence of diabetes mellitus and AD was noticed long time ago. However, more recent data reveal that comorbidity of AD and T2D occurs significantly more frequently than is expected by chance alone. In spi...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Advancing age is a major risk factor for a range of diseases such as, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. In addition, over a third of the population are overweight and obesity is becoming more prevalent in younger people. Ageing and obesity are both linked to a chronic proinflammatory state and elevated oxidative stress, which have both been implicated in cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases. Platelets contain all the necessary machinery to process the Amyloid precursor protein AβPP, a pathway thought to be perturbed in Alzheimer's Disease ...

This study provides strong evidence that following a healthy lifestyle can substantially extend the years a person lives disease-free." Commentary on Recent Evidence for Cognitive Decline to Precede Amyloid Aggregation in Alzheimer's Disease https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/01/commentary-on-recent-evidence-for-cognitive-decline-to-precede-amyloid-aggregation-in-alzheimers-disease/ I can't say that I think the data presented in the research noted here merits quite the degree of the attention that it has been given in the popular science press. It is interesting, but not compelling if its role...

Abstract CONTEXT: Gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT) has been associated with oxidative stress and inflammatory reactions. Variability in various biomarkers has emerged as a new clinical indicator for diseases including neurodegenerative disorders. OBJECTIVE: We investigated the association between GGT variability and dementia risk in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM). DESIGN, PARTICIPANTS, AND METHODS: We used the Korean National Health Insurance Service datasets of Claims and Health Check-ups from 2004 to 2016. The risk of incident dementia (all-cause dementia, Alzheimer disease, vascular dementia) wa...

Publication date: May 2020Source: Materials Science and Engineering: C, Volume 110Author(s): T.K. Henna, K. PramodAbstractCarbon-based nanomaterials have established a prime position as drug delivery carriers. It is very interesting to see that a carbon nanostructure could be used as a drug too, instead of its regular application as a drug delivery carrier. In this aspect, graphene quantum dots (GQDs) are now in the spotlight. GQDs are one of the recent entrants to the list of carbon-based nanomaterials. They are now reported useful in Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases. Furthermore, antibacterial and anti-diabetic poten...

“I drained the last of my cocktail, gazing up at the ceiling. It was one of those moments that curls the hairs on your neck. At once, the grand scale of this labyrinth of cathedrals became clear, the desert wind blowing through the clever hieroglyphics carved into every available surface. I turned my head back down to ground level just in time to see the man draw back his fist in anger, and then.And then.With a piercing shriek, he lunged straight at my jaw –”Do you ever wake from a dream, marvelling at the inventiveness and detail of your subconscious mind? That disorienting moment where you lie blinking ...
