Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. It is characterized by beta-amyloid (Aβ) peptide fibrils, which are extracellular depositions of a specific protein, and is accompanied by extensive neuroinflammation. Various studies have demonstrated risk factors that can affect AD pathogenesis, and they include accumulation of Aβ,(More)
In spite of the massive research for the identification of neurorestorative or neuroprotective intervention for curing Parkinson's disease (PD), there is still lack of clinically proven neuroprotective agents. Metformin, a common anti-hyperglycemic drug has been known to possess neuroprotective properties. However, specific mechanisms by which metformin(More)
Background: The modern life condition has resulted in the continuous human exposure to electromagnetic fields. Epidemiologic and animal laboratory studies have illustrated the bad effects of electromagnetic fields on biologic systems. The aim of our study was to see the effect of (EMF) on histopathological of heart-epithelial tissue in rat. Methods: 30(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by prominent loss of the nigral dopaminergic neurons and motor symptoms, such as resting tremor and bradykinesia. Evidence suggests that neuroinflammation may play a critical role in PD pathogenesis. Interleukin (IL)-32 is a newly-identified proinflammatory cytokine, which regulates(More)
Neurotrophic factors are essential for neuronal survival, plasticity, and development and have been implicated in the action mechanism of antidepressants. In this study, we assessed the neurotrophic factor-inducing and neuroprotective properties of antidepressants. In the first part of the study, we found that fluoxetine, imipramine, and milnacipran (i.p.,(More)
