Etanercept and Methotrexate in Combination or as Monotherapy in Psoriatic Arthritis

The purpose of this study is to learn more about the role of etanercept alone or in combination with methotrexate on disease activity in subjects with psoriatic arthritis. To do this, eta...

Short Term Efficacy and Safety of Perispinal Administration of Etanercept in Mild to Moderate Alzheimer's Disease

While the cause of AD is still unknown, evidence suggests it develops because of a complex series of events in the brain that occur over time. Two pathways possibly involved in developmen...

TNF-Alpha Inhibition for Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease

It is widely believed that inflammation contributes to the pathogenesis of AD. TNF has been implicated in both AD and neurological inflammation. Anti-TNF therapy is therefore surmised to...

Quantifying placebo responses in clinical evaluation of neuropsychiatric symptoms in Alzheimer's disease.

This study aimed to establish a non-linear mixed effects model to quantitatively analyze the placebo responses of neuropsychiatric symptoms (NPS) in Alzheimer's disease (AD).

Efficacy, Acceptability, and Safety of Intravenous Immunoglobulin Administration for Mild-To-Moderate Alzheimer's Disease: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

 A systematic review and meta-analysis of the efficacy/safety of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) administration in mild-to-moderate Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients was performed. Six randomized d...

Anti TNF-α therapy in patients with relapsed and refractory Langerhans cell histiocytosis: a phase II study.

Tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-α) is produced in Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) lesions and is elevated in plasma of patients with active LCH. It has been postulated that TNF-α may play a rol...

Identify compounds's target against Alzheimer's disease based on silico approach.

Alzheimer's disease swept every corner of the globe and the number of patients worldwide has been rising. At present, there are as many as 30 million people with Alzheimer's disease in the world, and ...

Repeated switches between reference product etanercept and biosimilar do not affect disease activity or retention rate of etanercept over 24 months - a cohort study with historical controls.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal structures located chiefly in distal dendrites and, along with NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES and SENILE PLAQUES, constitute the three morphological hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE. Neuropil threads are made up of straight and paired helical filaments which consist of abnormally phosphorylated microtubule-associated tau proteins. It has been suggested that the threads have a major role in the cognitive impairment seen in Alzheimer disease.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat ALZHEIMER DISEASE.

A progressive form of dementia characterized by the global loss of language abilities and initial preservation of other cognitive functions. Fluent and nonfluent subtypes have been described. Eventually a pattern of global cognitive dysfunction, similar to ALZHEIMER DISEASE, emerges. Pathologically, there are no Alzheimer or PICK DISEASE like changes, however, spongiform changes of cortical layers II and III are present in the TEMPORAL LOBE and FRONTAL LOBE. (From Brain 1998 Jan;121(Pt 1):115-26)

A carbamate-derived reversible CHOLINESTERASE INHIBITOR that is selective for the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM and is used for the treatment of DEMENTIA in ALZHEIMER DISEASE and PARKINSON DISEASE.

A biochemical phenomenon in which misfolded proteins aggregate either intra- or extracellularly. Triggered by factors such as MUTATION, POST-TRANSLATIONAL MODIFICATIONS, and environmental stress, it is generally associated with ALZHEIMER DISEASE; PARKINSON DISEASE; HUNTINGTON DISEASE; and TYPE 2 DIABETES MELLITUS.
