Alzheimer's disease (AD) is responsible for the most common form of dementia among elderly people. Signature features of the AD brain are intra/extracellular deposits of beta-amyloid (Abeta) and neurofibrillary tangles composed of hyperphosphorylated tau. Recent evidence indicates that in AD altered Zn(2+) homeostasis can play an important role in the(More)
Overactivation of glutamate receptors and subsequent deregulation of the intraneuronal calcium ([Ca2+]i) levels are critical components of the injurious pathways initiated by cerebral ischemia. Another hallmark of stroke is parenchymal acidosis, and we have previously shown that mild acidosis can act as a switch to decrease NMDAR-dependent neuronal loss(More)
ErbB-3 (HER-3) receptor is involved in tumor progression and resistance to therapy. Development of specific inhibitors impairing the activity of ErbB-3 is an attractive tool for cancer therapeutics. MP-RM-1, a murine monoclonal antibody targeting human ErbB-3, has shown anticancer activity in preclinical models. With the aim to provide novel candidates for(More)
ErbB-3 and its ligand NRG-1β are key players in driving oncogenic signaling and resistance to therapy through the activation of the PI3K/Akt pathway. We have recently reported that EV20, a humanized anti-ErbB3 antibody, possesses a marked antitumor activity in a variety of human tumor models, including pancreatic cancer (PC). Here, we report that despite(More)
