Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common form of dementia, is characterized by the deposition of amyloid plaques, accumulation of fibrillary tangles in neurons, neurite degeneration, loss of neurons, and a progressive loss of cognitive function. The pathogenesis of AD is not fully understood, and no strong disease-modifying therapies are currently(More)
Metastasis is the leading cause of death in patients with breast cancer and aberrantly expressed microRNAs (miRNAs) are highly associated with this process. A previous study has shown that miR-335 is downregulated in breast cancer and can suppress tumor invasion and metastasis. Emerging evidences indicate that c-Met is implicated in cell scattering,(More)
Senile plaques consisting of amyloid-beta (Aβ) are the major pathological hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and have been the primary therapeutic target. Immunotherapies, which are designed to remove brain Aβ deposits, increased levels of soluble Aβ and accelerated brain atrophy in some clinical trials, suggesting that the solubilization of Aβ deposition(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is one of most devastating diseases affecting elderly people. Amyloid-β (Aβ) accumulation and the downstream pathological events such as oxidative stress play critical roles in pathogenesis of AD. Lessons from failures of current clinical trials suggest that targeting multiple key pathways of the AD pathogenesis is necessary to halt(More)
The neurotrophin receptor p75 (p75NTR) is a receptor for amyloid-beta (Aβ) and mediates Aβ-induced neurodegenerative signals. The ectodomain of p75NTR (p75ECD) is a physiological protective factor against Aβ in Alzheimer's disease (AD). We have previously demonstrated that the shedding of p75ECD from the cell surface is down-regulated in AD brains and(More)
Amyloid-beta (Aβ) plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Clearance of Aβ is a promising therapeutic strategy for AD. We have previously demonstrated that peripheral organs play important roles in the clearance of brain-derived Aβ. In the present study, we recruited 46 patients with liver cirrhosis and 46 normal controls and(More)
Directly targeting therapeutic suicide gene to a solid tumor is a hopeful approach for cancer gene therapy. Treatment of a solid tumor by an effective vector for a suicide gene remains a challenge. Given the lack of effective treatments, we constructed a bifidobacterial recombinant thymidine kinase (BF-rTK) -ganciclovir (GCV) targeting system (BKV) to meet(More)
Mounting evidence suggests that ischemic stroke (IS) is associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). IS and vascular risk factors increase the risk for AD. However, whether AD pathologies exist in IS and the effects of these pathologies on stroke remain unknown. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the alterations of serum Aβ after acute IS (AIS), and(More)

The objectives of the present study were to develop functional targeting epirubicin liposomes for transferring drugs across the blood-brain barrier (BBB), treating glioblastoma, and disabling neovascularization. The studies were performed on glioblastoma cells in vitro and on glioblastoma-bearing mice. The results showed that the constructed liposomes had a(More)
Amyloid precursor protein (APP) is cleaved by β-secretase and γ-secretase complex, and subsequently generates amyloid-β peptide (Aβ). The Aβ cascade is widely accepted as playing a role in the pathogenesis Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Meanwhile, procession of APP by α-secretase (mainly a disintegrin and metalloproteinase 10, ADAM10) precludes Aβ production,(More)
