Intracerebral microinjection of interleukin-4/interleukin-13 reduces β-amyloid accumulation in the ipsilateral side and improves cognitive deficits in young amyloid precursor protein 23 mice.

Abstract

We previously reported that the anti-inflammatory cytokine interleukin (IL)-4 induced selective clearance of oligomeric β-amyloid (Aβ(1-42)) in rat primary type 2 microglial cells. For the present study, we investigated whether IL-4 and IL-13 could activate microglial cells to induce Aβ clearance in vivo and improve cognitive deficits in APP23 mice, which… (More)
