Neuroprotective effects of resveratrol in Alzheimer's disease.

Neuroprotective effects of resveratrol in Alzheimer's disease. Front Biosci (Elite Ed). 2020 Jan 01;12:139-149 Authors: Rao YL, Ganaraja B, Joy T, Pai MM, Ullal SD, Murlimanju BV Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder, which is commonly seen in older individuals. This is characterized by cognitive dysfunction, which leads to dementia. Pharmacological treatments for AD are mainly targeted on its symptoms like memory loss and cognitive impairment. The pathophysiology involved in AD is intra-neuronal accumulation of hyper-phosphorylated tau protein as neurofibrillary tangle and extra cellular beta amyloid plaque deposition, which is due to oxidative stress. Here we review the neuro-protective effects of Resveratrol (RSV) and its treatment efficacy in AD. RSV is a naturally available polyphenolic compound, which has antioxidant, anti-cancerous, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. RSV crosses blood brain barrier and exerts its antioxidant effect by enhancing the anti-oxidant enzymes. RSV is involved in Sirtuin (SIRT1) mediated lifespan extension activity. RSV has reduced glial activation and helped in increasing the hippocampal neurogenesis. RSV was able to decrease the expression of amyloid precursor protein, along with improvement of spatial working memory. Since RSV acts as an antioxidant, it can be safely used as oral drug.

Helicobacter pylori is one of the most prevalent infection worldwide. It affects individuals of different age groups. Aging ‐associated risk factors should be considered. Future studies, related to aging andH. pylori infection with extragastric disease can help to provide vivid evidences. AbstractHelicobacter pylori is one of the most prevalent infection worldwide. It affects individuals of different age groups. Elderly people tend to resist eradication treatment and worsening of infection can lead to several gastric and non ‐gastric pathologies. Aging‐associated cellular and molecular alteration can increase the ris...

This study carried out to evaluate the level of nuclear sperm DNA damage in men with isolated poymorphic  teratozoospermia and examining its relationship with apoptosis and oxidative stress.A total of 89 subjects was divided into two groups, men with isolated teratozoospermia (n = 69) and men with normal semen parameters (n = 20) as controls. Sperm DNA breaks were determined by using acridine orange staining. The proportion of viable spermatozoa with mitochondrial transmembrane depolarization was detected by fluorescence microscopy through the use of MitoPT ‐JC‐1 staining method. Bivariate Annexin V/ 6‐CFDA...

Panic patients have changed in MPV in relation to serotonin metabolism. It is because of oxidative stress due to serotonin metabolism. AbstractObjectiveCardiovascular disorders are common in patients with panic disorder (PD), usually mediated by platelets. The present study was conducted to evaluate oxidative stress conditions and complete analysis of blood cells in patients with PD.Setting and Sample PopulationSixty healthy individuals and 60 patients were included in the study. Whole blood and serum samples were obtained from patients and controls.Materials&MethodHematological studies, including blood cells count, he...

This study shows that mRNA levels of the aging related lamin A splice variant progerin, associated with premature aging in HGPS, were significantly upregulated in subjects with BMI ≥ 25 kg/m2. Moreover, our data revealed a significantly positive correlation of BMI with progerin mRNA. These data provide to our knowledge for the first-time evidence for a possible involvement of progerin in previously observed accelerated aging of overweight and obese individuals potentially limiting their longevity. Our results also showed that progerin mRNA was positively correlated with C-reactive protein (CRP). This might suggest an as...

This study is the longest, prospective randomized controlled trial that has documented the physiological effects of supervised, structured exercise training in a group of sedentary but healthy middle-aged adults. The key finding is that 2 years of exercise training performed for at least 30 minutes, 4 to 5 days per week, and including at least 1 high-intensity interval session per week results in a significant reduction in LV chamber and myocardial stiffness. The use of high-resolution, invasively measured LV pressure-volume curves and comparison with an attention control group enhances the confidence in this conclusion. T...

This study demonstrates that TNTs play a significant part in the intercellular transfer of α-synuclein fibrils and reveals the specific role of lysosomes in this process. This represents a major breakthrough in understanding the mechanisms underlying the progression of synucleinopathies. These compelling findings, together with previous reports from the same team, point to the general role of TNTs in the propagation of prion-like proteins in neurodegenerative diseases and identify TNTs as a new therapeutic target to combat the progression of these incurable diseases. Shorter Period of Rapamycin Treatment in...
