The aim of this study is to measure serum levels of neurotropic factor (NF) in patients with dementia. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), nerve growth factor (NGF), and neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) were determined in Alzheimer’s dementia patients without medication (AD; n: 22), Alzheimer’s dementia patients receiving cholinesterase inhibitor (CEI) treatment(More)
Fetuin-A is an endogenous inhibitor of the insulin-stimulated insulin receptor tyrosine kinase recently shown that high levels of circulating fetuin-A are associated with insulin resistance in humans suggesting that fetuin-A may represent a novel mechanism involved in the pathophysiology of type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Dietary omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids(More)
In diabetes mellitus, chronic hyperglycemia leads to formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs). Binding of AGEs to receptors of AGE (RAGE) causes deleterious effects. In populations with a high consumption of n-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, a lower prevalence of diabetes mellitus has been reported. We aimed to investigate the effects(More)
