Mitochondria are dynamic organelles, capable to interact with each other. While the number of mitochondria in a cell varies, their quality and functionality depends on the operation of fusion, fission, motility and mitophagy. Nowadays, several researches declare as an important factor in neurogenerative diseases the disruptions in the regulation of(More)
While Parkinson's disease is a chronic and progressive movement disorder, no one can predict which symptoms will affect an individual patient. At the present time there is no cure for Parkinson's disease but instead a variety of alternative treatments provide relief from the symptoms. Due to these unpromising factors, we propose a new multi-scale(More)
The concept of age-related dementias and vascular disorders has now been recognized for over a century. In the present review, we have emphasized on the causes, consequences and the true bases for the treatment and prevention of these disorders. Systematic efforts have been put together to identify the aetiology in each case. Increased efforts have been(More)
Considering the latest researches, disruptions in the regulation of mitochondrial dynamics, low energy production, increased reactive oxygen species and mtDNA damage are relevant to human diseases, mainly in neurogenerative diseases and cancer. This article represents inner mitochondrial membrane as a natural superconductor giving also the corresponding(More)
Considering the latest researches on the significant between mitochondrial disorders and human diseases, mainly on the nervous system, we propose a novel solution concerning the enriching of healthy mitochondrial population into cells. It is a totally theoretical proposal and refers mostly to mitochondrial encephalomyopathies which involve to brain(More)
Despite extensive research for over two decades, the medical science is yet to assign the exact aetiology and mode of progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The modern era of AD drug development began with the proposal of the cholinergic hypothesis of memory impairment. Since then, despite the proposal and phase trials of many therapeutic options, only(More)
Cancer is considered as a prevalent cause of human deaths and undoubtedly, is the most complex disease with multiple cellular physiological systems involved. During the last decade, the application of nanotechnological products for cancer treatment has received considerable attention. These sophisticated tools and materials treat cancer though the early(More)
In this paper, an extended review analysis has been presented concerning the developments in brain drug delivery through new and efficient applications of nanotechnology. Modern nanotechnological approaches for the diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases are described along with simultaneous analysis of safety and practical clinical(More)
