Neurological Complications during Treatment of Middle East Respiratory Syndrome
Background and Purpose Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) has a high mortality rate and pandemic potential. However, the neurological manifestations of MERS have rarely been reported since itExpand
Matrix Metalloproteinases Increase Very Early during Experimental Focal Cerebral Ischemia
Microvascular integrity is lost during focal cerebral ischemia. The degradation of the basal lamina and extracellular matrix are, in part, responsible for the loss of vascular integrity. MatrixExpand
Panax Ginseng Enhances Cognitive Performance in Alzheimer Disease
Recent experimental evidences suggest protective and trophic effects of ginseng in the memory function of Alzheimer disease (AD). Thus, we investigated the clinical efficacy of Panax ginseng in theExpand
An open‐label trial of Korean red ginseng as an adjuvant treatment for cognitive impairment in patients with Alzheimer’s disease
Background and purpose:  Ginseng is one of the most popular herbs worldwide. Ginseng has various medical applications, and it seems to have significant effects as a cognition‐enhancing drug. In thisExpand

Improvement of Cognitive Deficit in Alzheimer’s Disease Patients by Long Term Treatment with Korean Red Ginseng
A 24-week randomized open-label study with Korean red ginseng (KRG) showed cognitive benefits in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. To further determine long-term effect of KRG, the subjects wereExpand
The Possible Role of Antioxidant Vitamin C in Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment and Prevention
Oxidative stress is suggested to play a major role in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Among the antioxidants, vitamin C has been regarded as the most important one in neural tissue. ItExpand
Spatial distribution of glucose hypometabolism induced by intracerebroventricular streptozotocin in monkeys.
Intracerebroventricular injection of streptozotocin (icv-STZ) in rodents induces cellular and behavioral features mimicking Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the effect of icv-STZ in terms ofExpand
Activated microvessels express vascular endothelial growth factor and integrin alpha(v)beta3 during focal cerebral ischemia.
Both vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and integrin alpha(v)beta3 play roles in angiogenesis. In noncerebral vascular systems, VEGF can induce endothelial integrin alpha(v)beta3 expression.Expand
Effects of human neural stem cell transplantation in canine spinal cord hemisection
Abstract Objectives: Previous works have reported that the transplantation of neural stem cells (NSCs) may improve functional recovery after spinal cord injury (SCI), but these results have beenExpand
