Amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) is thought to be associated with the progressive neuronal death observed in Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, effective neuroprotective approaches against Aβ neurotoxicity are unavailable. Here, we investigated possible preventive effects of ibudilast, as a pharmacologic phosphodiesterase inhibitor, currently used for treatment of(More)
The activation of membrane-associated phospholipase C is rapidly and transiently induced in the central nervous system by a variety of stimuli. Ischaemic brain injury is one of the situations that leads to a dramatic increase in polyphosphoinositide (PPI) turnover. In this study, stimulation of PPI hydrolysis by glutamate (500 microM) was measured in(More)
