Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), the deposition of cerebrovascular beta-amyloid (Abeta) in the walls of arterial vessels, has been implicated in hemorrhagic stroke and is present in most cases of Alzheimer disease. Previous studies of the progression of CAA in humans and animal models have been limited to the comparison of pathological tissue from(More)
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), the deposition of beta-amyloid (Abeta3) in cerebral vessels, has been implicated as a common cause of hemorrhagic stroke and other forms of vascular disease. CAA is also a frequent concomitant of Alzheimer disease (AD). While the longterm consequences of CAA are well recognized from clinical and pathologic studies,(More)
Amyloid beta-peptide (Abeta) accumulation in specific brain regions is a pathological hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD). We have previously reported that a well-characterized acyl-coenzyme A: cholesterol acyltransferase (ACAT) inhibitor, CP-113,818, inhibits Abeta production in cell-based experiments. Here, we assessed the efficacy of CP-113,818 in(More)
