Neuroinflammation mediated by NLRP-1 inflammasome plays an important role in the pathogenesis of neurodegeneration diseases such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). Chronic glucocorticoids (GCs) exposure has deleterious effect on the structure and function of neurons and was found to be correlated with development and progression of AD. We hypothesize that chronic(More)
Neuroinflammation mediated by NLRP1 (nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain (NOD)-like receptor protein 1) inflammasome plays an important role in many neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Our previous studies showed that chronic glucocorticoid (GC) exposure increased brain inflammation via NLRP1(More)
