Our goal is to develop therapeutic agents that prevent age-associated neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer's. To achieve this goal, we are building on extensive knowledge regarding mechanisms of estrogen action in brain and the epidemiological human data indicating that estrogen/hormone...
Herein a case is made for the development of novel cytoprotective approaches based upon molecular mechanisms thought to underlie the caloric restriction phenomenon. This analysis leads to the prediction that molecular genetic perturbations affecting the metabolism of nuclear NAD+ and metabolites...
Neurotrophins activate a number of signaling pathways relevant to neuroprotection; however, their poor pharmacological properties and their pleiotropic effects resulting from interaction with the p75NTR-Trk-sortilin three-receptor signaling system limit therapeutic application. While local...
Activity-dependent neuroprotective protein (ADNP), a gene product essential for brain formation, contains a short octapeptide sequence NAPVSIPQ (NAP) that protects neurons against a wide variety of insults. At the pico-molar concentration range, NAP provides neuroprotection by direct interaction...
The tripeptide thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and/or related analogues have shown neuroprotective activity across multiple animal trauma models as well as in a small clinical trial of spinal cord injury. The metabolic product of TRH (cyclo-his-pro) retains physiological activity. We have...
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, as least in western countries. It has been estimated that the cost to society for caring for AD patients will consume the entire gross national product of the U.S.A. by the middle of this century if left unabated. Until recently, the...
