Higher fasting plasma insulin levels and reduced CSF-to-plasma insulin ratios, suggestive of insulin resistance, have been observed in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) who do not possess an apolipoprotein E (ApoE)-epsilon 4 allele. Insulin has also been implicated in processing of beta-amyloid and amyloid precursor protein (APP). We examined the(More)
Deep hypothermia leading to cardiac arrest requires aggressive management for resuscitation. Various methods are available to rewarm the patient. We hereby present a case report where active resuscitation was carried out using cardiopulmonary bypass in a young female who was found unconscious with a core temperature of 26 degrees C. The relevant literature(More)
Mitochondrial DNA variants have been shown to be associated with many diseases. Mutations at mitochondrial DNA nucleotide positions 3192, 3196, 3397 and 4336 have been described in association with late-onset Alzheimer's disease. The pathological similarities between inclusion body myositis and Alzheimer's disease prompted an analysis of the relationship(More)
The deposition of beta amyloid is a critical event in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease. This peptide is a metabolite of the amyloid precursor protein. Recent research suggests that there is a correlation between plasma insulin and glucose concentrations and memory performance in Alzheimer's disease sufferers. Additionally, in vitro evidence suggests(More)
