Increased CSF APPs-α levels in patients with Alzheimer disease treated with acitretin.
Rostock, Germany. In Neurology, 24 Nov 2014
OBJECTIVE: We investigated induction of α-secretase A disintegrin and metalloprotease 10 (ADAM10) by the synthetic retinoid acitretin (Neotigason; Actavis, München-Riem, Germany) in patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer disease (AD) via measurement of CSF content of α-secretase-derived amyloid precursor protein (APPs-α).
Clinical workout for the early detection of cognitive decline and dementia.
Thessaloníki, Greece. In Eur J Clin Nutr, 01 Nov 2014
Diagnosis of cognitive decline is mostly clinical (clinical criteria), but there are multiple biomarkers that could help us mostly in research programs such as short or long, paper and pencil or computerized neuropsychological batteries for cognition, activities of daily living and behavior, electroencephalograph, event-related potentials, and imaging-structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and functional (fMRI, Pittsburgh bound positron emission tomography, FDG-PET, single photon emission computerized tomography and imaging of tau pathology)-cerebrospinal fluid proteins (Abeta, tau and phospho-tau in AD and α-synuclein (αSyn) for PD).
Three-dimensional structure of human γ-secretase.
Beijing, China. In Nature, 14 Sep 2014
Aberrant cleavage of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) results in aggregation of amyloid-β, which accumulates in the brain and consequently causes Alzheimer's disease.
Structural origin of polymorphism of Alzheimer's amyloid β-fibrils.

propose that the strength of inter-strand side-chain interactions determines the degree of beta-sheet twist, which then leads to the different association patterns between different cross beta-units and thus distinct fibril morphologies

Trenton, United States. In Nat Rev Drug Discov, 2012
[review] Based on the apparent common pathogenic role of amyloid precursor protein in both Down's syndrome and Alzheimer's disease (AD), the idea that the dementia associated with Down's syndrome is in fact AD is supported on many levels.
