The study of sporadic Alzheimer’s disease etiology, now more than ever, needs an infusion of new concepts. Despite ongoing interest in Alzheimer’s disease, the basis of this entity is not yet clear. At present, the best-established and accepted “culprit” in Alzheimer’s disease pathology by most scientists is the amyloid, as the main molecular factor(More)
Autophagy is a major intracellular degeneration pathway involved in the elimination and recycling of damaged organelles and long-lived proteins by lysosomes. Many of the pathological factors, which trigger neurodegenerative diseases, can perturb the autophagy activity, which is associated with misfolded protein aggregates accumulation in these disorders.(More)
Amyloid precursor protein cleavage through β- and γ-secretases produces β-amyloid peptide, which is believed to be responsible for death of neurons and dementia in Alzheimer’s disease. Levels of β- and γ-secretase are increased in sensitive areas of the Alzheimer’s disease brain, but the mechanism of this process is unknown. In this review, we prove that(More)
Ischemic brain damage is a pathological incident that is often linked with medial temporal lobe cortex injury and finally its atrophy. Post-ischemic brain injury associates with poor prognosis since neurons of selectively vulnerable ischemic brain areas are disappearing by apoptotic program of neuronal death. Autophagy has been considered, after brain(More)
Head growth in 283 LBW (< 2500 g) children was longitudinally analyzed from birth till the 24th month of life. The studied children were divided into three groups: AGA preterms (181 children), SGA preterms (32 children) and S-f-D newborns (70 children). The data for chronological age and corrected for gestational age were statistically analyzed by analysis(More)
