Accumulated evidence has indicated that neuroinflammation is one of the important etiologic factors of Parkinson's disease (PD). Earlier studies have employed the inflammogen lipopolysaccharide (LPS) to induce inflammation of dopaminergic neurons. Methamphetamine (MA) dopaminergic toxicity similar to 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)(More)
Anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen appear to prevent the development of Parkinson's disease (PD); however, long-term use has undesirable side-effects. A new strategy for anti-inflammatory drug therapy is using a dual inhibitor of COX and lipooxygenase (LOX). Here, we compared the dopaminergic neuroprotective property of phenidone (a dual COX and LOX(More)
We previously demonstrated that the growth hormone (GH)-releaser diet ameliorated beta-amyloid (A beta) (1-42)-induced memory impairment, but the underlying mechanism remained to be characterized. We show here that the GH-releaser diet significantly attenuated A beta(1-42)-induced impairment in context-dependent conditioned fear, with a reduction in GH(More)
BACKGROUND It has been recognized that a defect in klotho gene expression accelerates the degeneration of multiple age-sensitive traits. Accumulating evidence indicates that aging is associated with declines in cognitive function and the activity of growth hormone (GH)/insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1). METHODS In this study, we examined whether a(More)
Since 1987, dura mater graft-associated iatrogenic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (dCJD) has been reported in many countries. We report the first case of dCJD in Korea. A 54-yr-old woman, who underwent resection of the meningioma in the left frontal region and received a dura mater graft 23 yr ago presented with dysesthesia followed by psychiatric symptoms and(More)
