Intensive research over the last decades has provided increasing evidence for neuroinflammation as an integral part in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). Inflammatory responses in the central nervous system (CNS) are initiated by activated microglia, representing the first line of the innate immune defence of(More)
BACKGROUND Amyloid precursor protein (APP) and amyloid β (Aβ) peptides are intensely studied in neuroscience and their cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) measurements may be used to track the metabolic pathways of APP in vivo. Reduced CSF levels of Aβ and soluble APP (sAPP) fragments are reported in inflammatory diseases, including multiple sclerosis (MS); but in(More)
