An update on pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease, the present document describes the crosstalk between autophagy and inflammation in Alzheimer's disease progression by assessing key findings and identifying gaps in the current knowledge. Inflammation mediators can disrupt the clearance of misfolded proteins. It is well defined that misfolded protein accumulation and aberrant level of inflammatory mediators in the brain can trigger Alzheimer's disease. Studies indicated that restoring the inflammatory and au...
Alzheimer's disease is associated with cerebral accumulation of amyloid-β peptide and hyperphosphorylated tau. In the past 28 years, huge efforts have been made in attempting to treat the disease by reducing brain accumulation of amyloid-β in patients with Alzheimer's disease, with no success. While anti-amyloid-β therapies continue to be tested in prodromal patients with Alzheimer's disease and in subjects at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, there is an urgent need to provide therapeutic support ...
Recent research with neuropathologic or biomarker evidence of Alzheimer's disease (AD) casts doubt on traumatic brain injury (TBI) as a risk factor for AD. We leveraged the National Alzheimer's Coordinating Center to examine the association between self-reported TBI with loss of consciousness and AD neuropathologic changes, and with baseline and longitudinal clinical status.
It has been well established in recent research that there is a strong correlation between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the knowledge of exact mechanistic behind this association remains elusive. It has been reported in recent studies that inflammation and hypercoagulation are pivotal to the pathophysiology of MetS-induced AD. It is rather captivating that aberrant Wnt signaling pathway has been found to be implicated in each of the four conditions, i.e., inflammation, hy...
Past research has focused on risk factors for developing dementia, with increasing recognition of "resilient" people who live to old age with intact cognitive function despite pathological features of Alzheimer's disease (AD).
A critical and as-yet unmet need in Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the discovery of peripheral small molecule biomarkers. Given that brain pathology precedes clinical symptom onset, we set out to test whether metabolites in blood associated with pathology as indexed by cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) AD biomarkers.
Microarray technologies have identified imbalances in the expression of specific genes and biological pathways in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains. However, there is a lack of reproducibility across individual AD studies, and many related neurodegenerative and mental health disorders exhibit similar perturbations.
To gain unfettered insight into one of the scourges of our aging societies, Mathys and colleagues in Nature (Mathys et al., 2019) illuminate the brain transcriptome of Alzheimer's disease at single-cell resolution. Their findings implicate oligodendrocytes, a cell type largely neglected in Alzheimer's disease research, and sex in the disease in intriguing ways.
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive age-related neurodegenerative disease. Although neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid beta are classic hallmarks of AD, the earliest deficits in AD progression may be caused by unknown factors. One suspected factor has to do with brain energy metabolism. To investigate this factor, brain metabolic activity in 3xTg-AD mice and age-matched controls were measured with FDG-PET. Significant hypometabolic changes (p
The ε4 allele of the apolipoprotein E gene represents the most widely reproduced and robust susceptibility loci for the most common late onset and sporadic forms of Alzheimer's disease. While the discovery of this now widely replicated association was reported more than 25 years ago, few therapeutic interventions that specifically target the apolipoprotein pathway in brain have emerged. Here we discuss our current understanding of apolipoprotein E biology in brain, its relationship to the pathogenesis of A...
Vascular risk factors promote cerebral small vessel disease and neuropathological changes, particularly in white matter where large-caliber axons are located. How Alzheimer's disease pathology influences the brain's vulnerability in this regard is not well understood.
Vitamin E was proposed as treatment for Alzheimer's disease many years ago. However, the effectiveness of the drug is not clear. Vitamin E is an antioxidant and neuroprotector and it has anti-inflammatory and hypocholesterolemic properties, driving to its importance for brain health. Moreover, the levels of vitamin E in Alzheimer's disease patients are lower than in non-demented controls. Thus, vitamin E could be a good candidate to have beneficial effects against Alzheimer's. However, evidence is consisten...
Chronic systemic inflammation has been positively associated with structural and functional brain changes representing early markers of Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and cognitive decline. The current study examined associations between systemic inflammation and cognitive performance among African Americans and Whites urban adults.
Brain insulin resistance is a well-recognized abnormality in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and the likely mediator of impaired glucose utilization that emerges early and progresses with disease severity. Moreover, the rates of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) or AD are significantly greater in people with diabetes mellitus or obesity.
Under stress stimulation, p25 is cleaved by p35 and acts as an activator of cyclin-dependent kinase 5 (Cdk5) like p35. Unlike Cdk5/p35, which is important for brain development, aberrant activity of Cdk5/p25 plays a pathological role in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease, by inducing hyperphosphorylation of downstream substrates related to pathological progression. A truncated fragment of the c-terminus of p35, the Cdk5 inhibitory peptide (CIP), selectively inhibits Cdk5/ p25 activity i...
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common neurodegenerative disorder. Depositions of amyloid β peptide (Aβ) and tau protein are among the major pathological hallmarks of AD. Aβ and tau burden follows predictable spatial patterns during the progression of AD. Nevertheless, it remains obscure why certain brain regions are more vulnerable than others; to investigate this and dysregulated pathways during AD progression, a mass spectrometry-based proteomics study was performed.
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a clinically heterogeneous disease. Multiple atypical syndromes, distinct from the usual amnesic phenotype, have been described. In this context, the existence of a right variant of AD (RAD), characterized by enduring visuospatial impairment associated with right-sided asymmetric brain damage, has been proposed. However, to date, this phenotype remains controversial. In particular, its peculiar characteristics and the independence from more prevalent cases (especially the posteri...
Several automatic tools have been implemented for semi-quantitative assessment of brain F-FDG-PET.
Donepezil is known to increase cholinergic synaptic transmission in Alzheimer disease (AD), although how it affects cortical brain activity and how it consequently affects brain functions need further clarification. To investigate the therapeutic mechanism of donepezil underlying its effect on brain function, regional homogeneity (ReHo) technology was used in this study.
Characterizing the earliest demonstrable cognitive decline in middle-aged adults at risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) will allow for the better understanding of the early disease trajectory, and the provision of therapies prior to clinical symptom onset. We developed an online platform- healthybrainproject.org.au (Healthy Brain Project; HBP)- to recruit, assess, and monitor at-risk middle-aged adults.
In the last decade, the microbiome in general and the gut microbiome in particular have been associated not only to brain development and function, but also to the pathophysiology of brain aging and to neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), Parkinson's disease (PD), depression, or multiple sclerosis (MS) [...].
While the accumulation and aggregation of amyloid-β and tau are central events in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease, there is increasing evidence that cerebrovascular pathology is also abundant in Alzheimer's disease brains. In brain capillaries, endothelial cells are connected closely with one another through transmembrane tight junction proteins forming the blood-brain barrier. Because the blood-brain barrier tightly regulates the exchange of molecules between brain and blood and maintains brain ho...
Neuroinflammation is recognized as part of the pathological progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD), but the molecular mechanisms are still not entirely clear. Systemically, physical exercise has shown to have a positive modulating effect on markers of inflammation. It is not known if this general effect also takes place in the central nervous system in AD. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of 16 weeks of moderate to high-intensity physical exercise on selected biomarkers of inflammation...
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive memory loss and dementia. The pathological characteristics of AD include the deposition of amyloid beta (Aβ), neurofibrillary tangles, and neuronal loss. There is evidence showing the involvement of inflammation in AD, including activated microglia within and surrounding senile plaques. Epidemiological studies suggest the use of anti-inflammatory drugs to reduce incidence of AD. However, clinical trials with anti-inflammat...
Higher white matter hyperintensity (WMH) load has been reported in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients in different brain regions when compared to controls. We aimed to assess possible differences of WMH spatial distribution between AD patients and age-matched controls by means of lesion probability maps.
