Prostaglandin E2 rescues cortical neurons from amyloid beta protein-induced apoptosis.


Cerebrospinal fluid prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) levels are elevated in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), suggesting an involvement of PGE(2) in the neurodegeneration. AD is characterized by deposits of amyloid beta protein (Abeta) in various regions of the brain, e.g. the cerebral cortex. In the present study, we investigated the effects of PGE(2) on… (More)
