Kathy Siggins and Lynda Everman are thrilled to share the welcome news that the US Postal Service has reinstated sales of the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Semipostal Stamp effective October 5, 2020. It is now available for purchase at most post offices and online at, and by phone at 1-800 STAMP-24. Before it was withdrawn in November 2019, over 8.2 million stamps were sold during its two-year run raising $1,061,777 for NIH-supported research to advance better treatments, prevention, and one day, a cure of Alzheimer’s and related dementias. The ...

Authors: Michelerio A, Tomasini CF Abstract Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by a cluster of signs and symptoms manifesting with difficulties in memory, language disturbances, psychological and psychiatric changes and difficulty in carrying out daily activities. Although it may seem to be far from a dermatologic competence, the ageing of populations in industrialized and developing countries has changed things making AD a multidisciplinary question. Indeed, this neurodegenerative disorder is not exclusively neurological, but rather may involve multiple tissues and organs. The abnormalities in metabolic and...

CONCLUSION: The above findings suggested that CBZ at low dose show neuroprotective effects against ICV-STZ induced microtubule-associated tau protein hyperphosphorylation in rats and may be an effective agent for the preventive treatment of AD. PMID: 33030130 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

AbstractQuantifying tissue-infiltrating immune and stromal cells provides clinically relevant information for various diseases. While numerous methods can quantify immune or stromal cells in human tissue samples from transcriptomic data, few are available for mouse studies. We introduce murine Microenvironment Cell Population counter (mMCP-counter), a method based on highly specific transcriptomic markers that accurately quantify 16 immune and stromal murine cell populations. We validated mMCP-counter with flow cytometry data and showed that mMCP-counter outperforms existing methods. We showed that mMCP-counter scores are ...

Identification of L-lactate Dehydrogenase as a Protein Tyrosine Phosphatase 1B substrate using K-BIPS. Chembiochem. 2020 Oct 01;: Authors: Acharige NPN, Pflum MKH Abstract Kinases and phosphatases are major players in a variety of cellular events, including cell signaling. Aberrant activity or mutations in kinases and phosphatases can lead to diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer's. Compared to kinases, phosphatases are understudied, which is partly a result of the limited methods to identify substrates. As a solution, we developed a proteo...

Abstract Oxidative injury due to elevated levels of reactive oxygen species is implicated in cardiovascular diseases, Alzheimer's disease, lung and liver diseases, and many cancers. Antioxidant therapies have generally been ineffective at treating these diseases, potentially due to ineffective doses but also due to interference with critical host defense and signaling processes. Therefore, alternative strategies to prevent oxidative injury are needed. Elevated levels of reactive oxygen species induce lipid peroxidation, generating reactive lipid dicarbonyls. These lipid oxidation products may be the most salient m...

In conclusion, it remains unclear if brain-specific regional and temporal changes occur in the expression of the different APP variants during AD progression. Since APP is also found in blood cells, assessing the changes in APP mRNA expression in peripheral blood cells from AD patients has been considering an alternative. However, again the quantification of APP mRNA in peripheral blood cells has generated controversial results. Brain APP protein has been analyzed in only a few studies, probably as it is difficult to interpret the complex pattern of APP variants and fragments. We previously characterized the soluabl...
