Neuroinflammation has been proposed as an important component of Parkinson's Disease (PD) aetiology and/or progression. However, the inflammatory components and the mechanisms underlying their effects are only partially known. By injecting an adenovirus expressing IL-1 in the striatum, we provoked progressive neurodegeneration of dopaminergic cells in the(More)
The functional role of the long-lasting inflammation found in the substantia nigra (SN) of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients and animal models is unclear. Proinflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta) could be involved in mediating neuronal demise. However, it is unknown whether the chronic expression of cytokines such as IL-1beta in the SN(More)
An appropriate inflammatory response is crucial for the maintenance of tissue homeostasis. The inflammatory responses seen in the brain parenchyma differ from those elicited in the periphery, ventricles and meninges. However, although an inflammatory component has been associated with many CNS diseases, the differences among parenchymal inflammatory(More)
